    Yeah, jebaos will sometimes break down. Always keep a spare in case one goes out. You can also buy replacement parts for them so they're pretty cheap to fix. But like I said earlier, you can replace the dang things a handful of times before you start to get close to the cost of one vortech. I've never had to replace more than one or two though.

    I set up a 125 reef not long ago and have 2 MP 40QDís and they are set up in Reefcrest random mode. My corals seem to have responded well. These powerheads can definitely move some water when they are at full power. I only need to set them to less than mid point and everything seems happy and itís not an underwater hurricane. They do come at a premium to others but after having them now I am glad I bought them. I also like how easy they are to clean.

    I love tunzes (own 3-6085s for backup) but I could not imagine reefing without Ecotech MPs. If you maintain the MP pump it lasts for yrs.

    For the first time I tried the maxspect gyre 280 and loving it. I would suggest you look into smaller gyre pumps- it's less expensive and can create some amazing flow. Place your 6095s on one side and add a gyre on the opposite side.

    I don't even have an opinion on Jebao.
