I picked up a fully stocked 54g corner tank the other day off KSL, I am finally getting everything put back together and I am wondering what my best option powerhead wise would be. I had ordered a brand new Jebao RW-4 for my biocube and it arrived the other day just after I had bought this to upgrade:) So I have a brand new one still in the box and am trying to decide if I should go ahead and use it and maybe need to buy one more or if I should sell it and go with a Jebao RW-8 instead. I would love an MP10 just don't have the cash to get one right now... However the Jebao may work better in this style tank because of the way you can turn the head on it.
Let me know what you think maybe if someone has used the RW-4 and can tell me how powerful it is?

i am running an rw-4 on a 40b  and there are times when i want just a little more flow. I would get a second one and run them at less than 100% so far I really like that pump.

Rw8 is way too powerful for a 54g corner tank I would just get another rw4 and run them together.
