- Koralia Third Generation Powerhead (1350 GPH) - Hydor USA
Hydor is pleased to announce their new Koralia Third Generation line of powerheads. The Koralia Third Generation is super compact, energy efficient and is ideal to recreate the natural and beneficial water motion of rivers and seas. With a lower profile than previous models, and new DMSS (Dual Magnet Support System) system getting flow where you need it has never been easier. Hydor has put new motors inside their third generation pumps which leads to more flow for every watt. The new Koralia pumps can also be hooked up to a wavemaker or controller and set to intervals of seconds to hours.
High flow is very important to maintaining a thriving healthy aquarium. Aquariums with poor flow can experience a number of easily avoidable health issues. Using high flow powerheads in your aquarium will:
- Significantly decrease the risk of algae outbreaks.
- Keep waste and particles suspended longer so skimmers and filters have a better chance of removing them.
- Prevent toxic pockets from forming in hard to reach areas.
- Keep debris from collecting on corals.
- Keep food suspended longer so you can add less food.
- Increase the chances of long term healthy tank success.
- Flow Rate: 1350 GPH
- Max Glass Thickness: 0.6 Inches
- Power Consumption: 5.5 watts
- Cord Length: 6 feet
Two sizes of fish guards, flow diffuser, and cable protector are included.
Works great, looks great. By obct537 on 11/14/2016obct537 would recommend this product to a friendI picked up two of these to start up my first reef tank recently. I don't have a ton of experience to compare them to, but I really enjoy these. The magnet/suction mounting system is great. If you're cleaning the glass on the outside of the tank, you can temporarily pop off the outside magnet, and the suction cup on the inside will hold it in place just fine (just don't forget to put it back.) Moving/adjusting these are super simple. I don't have the experience to comment on the flow patterns, or the long-term life of these, but I'm quite pleased so far. And hey, they look pretty great, in my opinion.
Reall cool design, but the color By alan on 6/30/2016alan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLow profile and slick looking powerhead. The only issue is part of the housing is red colored. It sticks out like a sore thumb why couldn't it have just been all black :T
Works great so far By Shawn on 1/5/2016Shawn would recommend this product to a friendHave two 2450's up and running for about a month. All good so far. Provides very good flow for a 48" width. Very quiet.
Excellent in Every Way But One... By Chris B on 10/20/2015Chris B would recommend this product to a friend(1350 Model)
This powerhead has great flow output, especially for the power, which can be changed from direct and narrow to softer and wide using the 3 flow "guards". If you do use them, it does drop the flow (1100-950 gph depending on attachment), but I wasn't concerned. Directional adjustability is great, only being bested by few such as Tunze. Gone are plastic mounts, so no worrying about breaking them, and the magnet system holds well. It also cuts noise to the point that the only thing I can hear from it is the cord on the rim of the tank, which is virtually non existent.
Now the drawback. Though the size is quite good for the output, and COULD be hidden, for some awful reason they decided to make the motor housing PINK! It sticks out way too much, more so from the front. Maybe I won't clean all the coralline algae off it keep it camouflaged a bit, though I shouldn't have to if they thought about the color choice.
Overall I'm very very happy, but that damn Pink!
How many of these for a 125 6 foot long tank? Or should I go with a larger power head. If so, which size and how many?
I have a 75g, 4 foot long tank. what is the recommendation for 2 powerheads? For example two 1350gph?
Would one of these be to much flow for my 33 gallon aquamax cube?
