Nice Pump By Justin on 9/23/12
Justin would recommend this product to a friend
I was a bit skeptical when I was told I ought to lay out this kind of cash on a powerhead, but I am sold. I have been using them for a few months now, and they are great products. I have a rimless tank, and really like that I maintain the minimalist look of the tank by keeping the majority of the powerhead on the outside of the glass.
The controller is a bit difficult to program/use, but the instruction manual is not too difficult to follow.
2 of these in my 57 gal tank is almost overkill. These pumps are very powerful - in fact from independent tests out there on the interwebz, they are actually more powerful than advertised.
I would definitely recommend if you have a bit of extra cash to outlay on your reef tank for some very pro gear.
Far Louder than acceptable By Mike on 9/10/12

I understand that the motor is outside the water, however the reality is that this pump is bar far louder than everything else on my system combined. I sent the pump to EcoTech and they would only say that it's "within their tolerancees."
I had no way to test the noise level before purchase so I knew I was taking a risk. I fully regret buying the pump based on the high level of noise. I'll sell the pump to someone who has a high tolerance for noise and try something different.

It is a very good product, much better than my previous one.
Fantastic but at a steep price By Brigwol on 7/19/12

The different wave modes are what got me to buy one for my 55 build. I haven't ran it over 50% and have no flow issues what so ever. The price and lack of promotions are the only disappointing thing about this power head.
It is tiny... By Matt on 7/4/12
Matt would recommend this product to a friend
It is tiny (*really* small), but flimsy and overpriced. I had to replace one wet side because a cerith climbed in during a power outage and when the power came on one of the blade sheared off on his shell! (This of course caused the wet side to become a projectile into the corals below.) It's hard to beat the package size if you really need something this small, but be prepared for ongoing costs.

This company stands behind its products By Robert on 5/23/12

The first mp10 I received worked for about 5 min, and then stopped, after troubleshooting, got in touch with Ecotech, and they promptly sent out a replacement, no questions asked, great customer support. The new pump worked great and I'm happy with it in my 40 breeder sps mix reef. These guys stand behind their products . If you buy, no worries!

This thing puts alot of flow in my 50g, 36x18x18. I have a mixed reef tank and set the unit at 50% and still outputs a great amount of flow. Easy to use and clean. Highly recommended!
The best aquarium product you can buy By Andrew on 3/29/12

This product changed the way I looked at water movement and aquariums. Little to no footprint and the watermovement and controll is unreal. Great customer service. This is truely a unique item and cannot be compared to anything else. I just wish the price was a bit lower.
so cool and tiny By mygolfisslow on 3/14/12
mygolfisslow would recommend this product to a friend
when these first came out i could not believe that a power head was this much money. then a friend of mine that had one talked me into it. and i have never looked back i had 4 power heads in my 40 gal. all replaced by one of these. it is a lot to spend but well worth it.
Must have for every tank By PT on 3/10/12
PT would recommend this product to a friend
Ive had my eye on this for a while and put it aside thinking it costs too much for a pump ... finally couldnt resist anymore and bought it for a new setup and its everything I imagined it to be and more !! Ill never be w/o one of these in another tank. The reefcrest mode is my favorite and the corals/fish seem to love it.
Only issue I have is it does move the sand around slowly near the corners due to how strong the flow it creates. I have a 24" cube and running 1 around 80% along with a return from mag 7 seems to have enough flow everywhere in the tank.
Cool Features By Martin on 2/14/12
Martin would recommend this product to a friend
Love the pump, but let's face it. This one falls into the "I want it" instead of the "I need it" category. I gave value 3 stars due to cost. You can get the same circulation from less expensive products, but not with the same cool features. Only complaint so far is that it did not come with a full owner's manual. Thought mine was defective until I downloaded the manual and noted the "break-in period" when "pump stalls may occur for a few days", thus 4 stars for performance. Wish I had known that before I called EcoTech. Regardless, I have zero regrets and love this pump.
