This "ball" can easily be placed to put water movement just about anywhere in your tank. The socket stays put on the glass perfectly due to the 4 eheim suction cups. In conjunction with an eheim ball joint i can get water anywhere from any point. For the price point it doesnt move as much water as powerheads from other brands (It's also larger than the ones that move this amount of water). However, how many other powerheads can be turned into internal filtration? None that I am aware of. If you've got the money or just want something that is really well built this is the powerhead for you.
has used this product for 1-3 Years.

The Aquaball is a good quality product. But its not a good product in my opinion. It's simply too big for what it does. The whole thing, from the huge intake to the huge ball socket to the huge suction cup assembly just screams 'look over here!'
To me the hardware in a tank should be utilitarian. You want to see the fish not the filters. These are just too big and without the power to justify their size. I don't find them any quieter than other powerheads of comparable output personally..
Very quiet. Excellent design allows you to aim just about anywhere. Not as much power as some of the other brands, but I was just looking for somthing to eliminate the deadspots in my planted setup. Satisfied
Purchased simply to move water. I tried 2 and had to return both. The first one was loud and had a vibrating sound. The second one was simply loud. I purchased a Marineland Maxi-jet, I can't hear it operating at all.
Very good power head for circulation. It would be nice if they would make one for 300 gph, but the nice thing about this one is the fact that it can be positioned at just about water level, which helps oxygenate the water and get the "gunk" off the surface. I had a Marineland 550 before; which was nice; but the jet had to be pointed up to agitate the surface.
