Details
The Koralia Evolution is an improved Koralia with higher flow and lower power consumption than the traditional Koralia. Ideal for marine and reef tanks, these pumps simulate natural ocean currents within your aquarium system. The Evolution series pumps include several innovations including: a new and improved vibration absorbing magnet-suction cup mounting system for secure placement, a more compact design making them easier to conceal, and a new shaft-less impeller technology and unique impeller design allowing for a wide and gentle flow pattern. The Koralia Evolution pumps consume 50% less power, while providing 20% more water flow. They are also controllable, as they can be connected to a timer such as the Hydor Smartwave pump controller. The Koralia Evolution 1500 replaces the Koralia 1400. It produces 1500 gph at a mere 7 watts.

The Hydor Koralia Evolution 1500 is suitable for use in freshwater aquariums ranging from 90 - 175 gallons in size, and in saltwater aquariums ranging from 55 - 100 gallons in size.
Please Note: A minor oversight at the manufacturing level has resulted in the mislabeling of selected Koralia Evolution Pumps (both on the packaging and the products themselves). Please rest assured that the model you order is the model you will receive. The actual performance figures (gph) are accurate to the respective product listings. Feel free to contact Customer Service if you have additional questions or require further clarification. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

      This is one nice power head

      I got this for one of my planted aquariums. It helps keep the water moving and clean. My fish love to swim in front of the thing all the time.

      Ordered two of these Koralia 1400 and one of them quit after less than 4 months of use. Have sent it in and will be pleased if serviced and returned/replaced AND the replacement lasts. Seems to create good water movement but < 4 months for a powerhead of this caliber and price is very unacceptable.

            I use three 750's in combination with smaller Koralia pumps to provide awesome circulation in my 180 gallon reef tank. The 750's allow me to target difficult flow areas to defeat dead spots without disturbing my inhabitants. Yet, I'm most satisfied with the energy efficiency. Multiple units haven't effected my aquariums temperature or power bill. You can't beat these for the money...

                      Great Product. Purchased 2 magnum 6's for my 125 gallon and they blew the fish around. Now with the 2 750's it's perfect. The soft wide range of flow is great for circulation and the fish love it.

                          It can get junk stuck in crevices. I have 4 in my reef so that I can get the direction of flow perfect. Easily hidden. Overall great reliable product.

                                The one thing thats great about it could also be its biggest downfall. It uses such little energy that some electrical wave timers get fooled by the current draw. You have to use in line lights to help trigger the switch between two pumps. Otherwise a great, cheap alternative to the more expensive controllabe wave timers.

                                Hydor powerheads really blow, lol. My LFS sells the exact same thing for [$] each. I ordered from Big Als, paid[...] Great product for a great price. I use three 1050 GPH and one 1400 GPH in my 90 gallon reef tank. Thinking of buying a couple of smaller flow powerheads to put behind the rock work. When I do decide to buy I will definitely order from Big Als again.

                                    One Hydor Koralia Evolution Pump 600 should work very well for your aquarium. However two would work better if placed one on each side as the skilter I would presume is on the back of the aquarium cascading the water to the front.

                                    Having a power head will increase water movement and reduce stagnant areas. It will also increase the efficiency of filtration.
