Because crazing ontop of the tank is not going to cause the whole thing to bust. MH manufacturers also do not claim their products to be low-heat unlike the Vortech.

Prove to me that J's tank was underbuilt. You're making a lot of assumptions when you have never seen this tank nor even know anything about how it was built.

Yes although 100gph I doubt could be easy to achieve with the MJ1200.


You're better off getting the smaller MJ400. They're cheap so why not?

Well they are certainly overheating on Jonathan's tank. I've felt the motor while it's running, it's pretty frigging hot. I could easily imagine a small child being burnt by it if touched.
