I own two koralia's (one 1 and one 3 model) both work good but I agree can be large in size. I also work in a LFS and can say that I sell the koralia's and haven't had any but one returned.

I like the koralia 3 that I have. Two would be pretty good in a 75. I'm about to mod my maxi jet as well. It seems to be another inexpensive way to get a lot more flow. I've never used a Tunze nano so I can't compare the two really.

I have 2 k4s, 1 Seio820, a modded MJ1200, and a modded MJ250 in my 75gal. I will be swapping the Seio for another K4 or MJmod. Hopefully that will give me the perfect flow finally.

I love the koralias. You can't beat the magnet mount and swivel.

I have 3 K3's in my 58g(3 foot long) tank. I have had no problems with them and they running whisper quiet. I have tons of random flow with 3 of them and do not disturb the sand bed. Its all about placement. They are the same size as the K2's so they are not that big. Now the K4's are huge.

Go to my gallery if you want to see the size of the K3's compared to my tank size.

I have 2 modded 6025's in my 75. The flow is great and the powerheads blend in pretty easily with my black background. I love them and the service from Roger at Tunze is 1st rate. I have a mixed reef and everyone seems very happy.

I'm going to be fixing them to the glass with the magnet, but resting the pump on the rock, and letting a monti encrust onto it to help camoflage it.
