National Geographic™ Aquarium Powerhead
Not what I wanted in a powerhead
30 gallon tank
I was hoping for a more powerful stream and was interested in the variable bubbles from large bubble to small, but it wasn't anything impressive.
I found it very bulky, taking up too much room. The flow was not as powerful as I had hoped since I was hoping to get a larger aquarium in the future. This model is rated for a 30-60 gallon aquarium.
This thing would do great for a 20-25 gallon tank. Yet with the size so large, it would be an eye sore. Even with my size of tank, it is an eye sore.
I did like the fact that I could remove it from it's bracket which is attached to the window in order to try and hide it. I have yet to figure out how to hide such a bulky item.

I bought this powerhead for one of my 55 gallons that has one of my adult male RES turtles and it is amazing! I am planning on getting one for each of my 3 other turtle tanks in the future. The best thing is they do not run on an air pump so not air hose and no noise. Lots of bubbles and my turtle loves to play in it and my breeding platys enjoy it as well.
