This is my second MP10. Got it for $176.25, what a deal. This is running on my ADA 60F, set at reef crest mode by 25% and corals are happy. At 25% setting its silent but if crank to 80 to 100 % then it's little loud. Well, for a nano tank application I recommend this pump.

I can't believe I waited so long go buy this product. Yes, it's expensive, but so is all your livestock. I won't set up another tank without one again.
Great Pump By Richard on 12/13/2014

I have been using the MP40 with my 120 reef tank and decided to try the smaller MP10 for my 29 Nano. Well, I couldn't be happier with the performance. I was previously using 3 small pumps that were less than effective and very prone to clogs and poor performance. With the new MP10, my tank temperature has dropped w/o the extra heat being generated by the little pumps and algae buildup on the glass has virtually been stopped. Very happy, only wish I had opted for the MP10 when I originally setup up the nano.

I have two of these on my 60gal cube reef tank and I love them. They move a lot of water in a wide spread and are very quiet. They have a lot of different flow patterns that suits the needs of your corals. I also find them to be the most attractive looking of all power heads since they have a low visual impact inside the tank.
What can I say, it's a great pump By Cliff on 11/25/2014

I've been running this in a 75 gallon reef along with an Mp40 in async mode. The ES is the non wireless model, but you can purchase the wireless module to upgrade if desired. I have both of these units being controlled by an Neptune Apex controller. The MP10 is a solid pump and well made. Also, Ecotech support has been excellent as well, very helpful.
First Impression.... By Adam on 11/25/2014

Just received my MP10 last night and had the opportunity to play around with it for a few hours. Oh, before you freak out about the power cord missing, check under the plastic mold, its tucked away under it. Right out of the box you can tell it has great build quality and just a solid unit. Set up was pretty straight forward and fairly easy to accomplish as well.
Controller/Driver - Most of the modes were pretty easy to figure out, just the "long pulse" mode took some time to fully understand the set up. Key is to be patient and slow when exploring the different modes. I know we dont like instructions but a good read of the quick start guide is helpful. It will probably take some time playing around to get it dialed in perfect for your liking.
What I really like about this MP10 is the power you get from its small footprint. I dont have a lot of room in my Nuvo 16 so the MP10 was the only logical way to go. So its small, powerful, and highly adjustable settings....all great things to have.
What I dont like about this is the price, pretty expensive. Another issue I have is that it is a bit noisy, even after i adjusted the wet side to the dry side as instructed by the quick start guide. I have heard that in time the noise goes away....so time will tell.
All in all, I think its a great product and in time we will see if it is worth the money spent. I do think it will be.
Great powerhead By Albert on 6/29/2014

This is a great powerhead for nanos. The large number of options you have with the programming is amazing compared to your standard powerhead. At first it may seem noisy, but it quiets down significantly over time. Although this version doesn't have the wireless chip, it can be purchased separately and easily installed into the driver from ecotech's website. This is a great option for nano reefers who want a great powerhead but also have limited budget and don't need the wireless capability right away. I would definitely recommend everyone try out this wonderful pump!
