I recently purchased a 60G cube, I’m in the process of getting everything I need for it and was wondering what kind of power head(s) would best suit this tank.  I was thinking a single mp40 or dual mp10s maybe even 2 Jebao slw-10/20s. I would love to hear some input on why you think and why...

i have a icecap 1k gyre  for sale (80$) if you're interested. its too much for my 40 cube even on 10% so i would think it would be great for a 60 cube.

I ran the 1K gyre in my 60 cube and it worked well. However, I'm currently running two koralias because the gyre failed in a year. The koralias are cheaper and last much longer.

I plan on being somewhat spa heavy in the tank, is the gyre controllable?
