When I did use it in my tank I did put a piece of pre-filter foam for the Aqua Clear 50 with a hole in it as a pre filter and it worked great. Only thing I didnt like about it was it seemed to blow my sand around a bit too much for my liking. Now I use Koralia water circulators in my tank and use the maxi jet to pump water in and out of my fry tanks since they are under my stand making the siphon pretty slow after a few inches of water are taken out.HONDO said:thanks everyone. i will look for something else.
xxbenjamminxx, i currently also have a maxi jet 1200. just curious, do you use a sponge filter on the intake? i use one on my tank with my other filters and i really like it.
