Ratings & Reviews
The option to change from the power head to the circulation pump is great. I purchased the 600 and intend to use it in a 125 gallon aquarium in the future. However, I now have it in my 55 gallon and the 600 is a bit too powerful for the fish.

This product is extremely versatile, either as a pump, power head, or just for circulation. I did a fair amount of homework on this item prior to purchase. I did some searching for price and delivery, I stumbled on this site...GREAT prices and local to the tri-state area. I highly recommend this product and this site.
<br>I'm using this product in a 55 Gallon Cichlid setup. I am using the white impeller (included) configuration. It's quiet and extremely efficient, the water is recirculating triple fold as a result. My frontosa and larger mbunas are loving the newly added current.
<br>As I write this review - thatpetplace.com is still the cheapest on the web for this item. Thank you guys!
I give them a 4.5
I have used the whole line of pumps for many years. It's a great bang for your buck.
<br>The good the bad and the ugly sides of the pumps...
<br>The plastic suction mount bracket breaks easy and with age gets very brittle
<br>on the other side I mentioned age so the pumps last quite a long time.
<br>Impellers with age tend to fall apart however I mentioned age again the pumps last quite a long time.
<br>I used the model 1200 and 900 in Circulation Mode the pump can reverse water flow every now and again. I purchased the two pumps used and something may have broken or was missing from the previous owner. I am only mentioning this because I lost a fish and can not rule out the possibility it got sucked in because of the reverse action.
<br>The pumps are so popular other companies make accessories for them such as magnet holders.
<br>All and all I give them a 4.5 stars
