Most versatile pump ever made By Andrew on 3/29/12

If you are a serious about the hobby you should have 3-4 of these pumps on hand. They can be used for almost anything. I use two for water movement on a frag tank. One for water top off. One for mixing salt. One for water changes. I love these and they last forever. No other company can touch the versatility and price.

I have had this pump for a good bit now and its still going strong. Its been used to power my brs duel reactors, water changes, mixing salt and more. Works great and has nice power for the price but i find it to be a bit noisy. Other then that i would still recomend it any day

Good little pump to have on hand. The price is right and aside from the vibrations in the sump its a good all around pump. (Quieted mine down w/ some bar mat)
Good Pump By mike on 3/13/12

Works well when hooked up to the GFO/Carbon Reactor which is what I purchased it for. Wasn't as happy with it as a power-head. Will definitely recommend for anyone looking for a Reactor pump.
Make water changes easy By Thomas on 3/13/12

I bought this pump for water changes. I use the impeller to pump water out of my sump so that I do not need to change water out of my display tank. I real nice surprise was that changing to the impeller to propeller is trivial so it can preform a double duty of mixing water as well. Value wise impossible to beat.

The manufacturer is replacing my pumps, but I still do not recommend using them with the brs gfo if you are concerned with noise issue. You should be able to come off your main pump and adapt it to accept your gfo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_-xch8SC_M

circulation pump By Raymond on 2/29/12

I use this as a circulation pump in my nano tank and it has worked good for about a year. I have the tank in my bedroom and only hear a very slight hum from it.
Very Loud Start Up By Evan on 2/20/12

While this pump produces a very large amount of circulation, I found its loud start up and running noise to be too much for me when using a wavemaker.
Meh By Michael on 2/12/12
Michael wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I have two 1200s in my new 75 gal. tank. I was pleasantly surprised by how much flow they provide. Getting a nice wave-like effect at top of tank. BUT, they really rattle when they restart, which does not bode well. They require a sure-grip magnetic attachment (sold separately) to mount them. (Even with silicone, I would not trust suction cup mount). And after two weeks the ball pivot used to direct flow is slipping.
Great Pump By Sean on 1/31/12

I have several of these... 1 for my BRS reactor one for mixing saltwater and I use 1 for a return pump to a little frag tank. They work great... although sometimes they do make some noise.
Bad Vibrations By Stephen on 1/25/12

I purchased this to power my BRS reactor. Wish I would have waited until BRS had the Cobalt power head in stock, this thing has an annoying vibration.
