I'm thinking about adding another one to my tank, but not sure if my sand can take it.

I'd like to test one out before paying for one. If anyone has one I can test out for a day, I'd really appreciate it :)

Scuzy, it also depends on how your aquascape is set up to deflect the flow, and your tank is still relatively new. Sand will move less once it matures more. I used to have only (2) 6201's in my 180g, and it moved sand all over the place. Now that the sand has matured a bit, I have added (2) more 6101s. Sand is taking it. So thinking about swapping out (1) 6101 with a 6201

Scuzy, you can tilt them up slightly if you use the extra suction cups that come with the stock mounting hardware. You can place that "stick" into a suction cup and tilt up the Stream slightly

yeah, you'll know what I mean when you look at that pack of stuff. It's literally a black peg that's about 1" long or so.

so total 4 or 3 6201's, at least give your corals time to grow :D before blowing the flesh off.

Bart, if I make the change, it will be 3 6201s and 1 6101. I'll switch to 4 6201 after they grow up :D

Swivel the Tunze right or left on the swivel part. Then tilt the magnet part and it will point up or down.
See here where I swivel the pump and tilt it:
