Hydor koralia nano is pretty small and gives 900lph, I use a koralia 1 (next model up, giving 1500lph) with a tetratec ex1200 in a 120l tank and it gives excellent circulation.

Could you find a way of having the pump outside the tank? I.e. in the cabinet? I've got an eheim compact +3000 running a 'closed loop' on my 4ft, you just need some tubing and spare intake and outtake, both of which in my case are glass :) It sucks in water and pump sit back out again around the tank , works a treat.

Ive tried to find one for myself before now, that, like the eheim allows for 2 tubes to be attatched, all i seem to find is the one for the outflow, and not an intake.
I think im going with the koralia nano powerhead for my 35litre.

on the smaller models (compact) like the 1000 the intake is a small grill so you cant add tubing on, whereas the outtake is fine to fit 16mm tubing on i believe. The bigger models such as the 3000 does away with the intake grill i believe.

I have just purchased a hydor seltz L30, they are suitable for the job, quiet, reasonably prices and can be turned down from what i hear...
