    They are better than running just the pumps, but they are not anything like the Tunze controller. I prefer "random" flow over constant flow. The only problem is you may have to change the STD fuse that comes with it, mine kept on blowing when you switch it off or when the power went out.

    hey nakoma a seio is a make of internal pump, and you can buy a controller extra that switches the unit on and off in time intervals.You don't want a constant waterflow in your tank.

    And the corals love it when water flow changes.
