Maxijet are good, and Tunze's are the king of powerheads- just find one in the gph range that you're looking for, and you should be good.

Also- please note that all powerheads will dissipate the heat directly relative to their wattage consumption. If a Maxijet and a Rio both say they use 30watts of power, then they both will introduce the same heat into the tank. If one puts out 300gph more than the other at the same power rating, then it is indeed more efficient. It's funny how the laws of thermodynamics somehow seem to apply to our fish tanks as well.... :)
