I have been using a Koralia 4 pump (powerhead) for a month.
I like the magnet so it just does not just clip on the top of the tank.
Moves 1200 gallons per hour.
Low energy output.

I got a powerhead that has a filter on the bottom of it. I put the powerhead low enough to suck up poop and it does a wonderful job. I clean it out twice a week and never have to vacuum. I gets a little sand in the filter, but I rinse it out in a large bowl and dump the water/poop down the drain and put the sand back.

The best powerheads for circulation are low velocity - high flow circulation pumps. Hydor Koralia, Seio Superflow, Tunze Stream, Tunze Nano Stream, and even the Maxi-Jet retrofit kits are all great choices to increase flow overall.
Old school powerheads are such old technology since the advent of this new generation of circulation pump has popped up.

What makes these better? Will the low velocity dislodge poo from sand?

I love the Koralia 4, the magnet makes it easy to move and relocate and also when cleaning time comes around. Of course it pushes 1200 gpa. It's simple, easy and efficient. Hope you like yours.
