I've always been a cheap when it came to powerheads, but after years of putting up with koralias I bought a mp10, and wow. What a difference. Built great, the flexability and different modes you can do is amazing. I love feed mode and nutrient export mode, work just as promised! I literally am never buying anything other than vortech for the rest of my time in this hobby. Plain and simple.

I think this product is well worth the extra cost over other powerheads on the market. The ability to have alternating flow in a reef aquarium is vital to continued growth and the health of our livestock. I would definitely recommend every marine aquarium to have a controller of some sort that can alternate the flow and this product offers that at a moderate price point.
Great Features By Remy on 11/10/12

I use 1 of these in my 30 gallon Seahorse cube. Although the pump ends up being dialed down substantially, I love the fact that I can crank it up to aid with nutrient removal via my overflow. The Seahorses almost seem to enjoy riding the occasional wave! The best part about using this with horses is the fact that it allows me to dial down the flow during nighttime mode, during which the horses like to find their favorite hitching post and sway gently in the current. I like the idea of allowing them to get a good nights rest and not having to worry about them being tossed around while they try to mellow out for the night. If I ever upgrade to a large seahorse set-up I know that this pump can follow me a long ways, which is another great selling point!

this is such an awesome little powerhead, i splurged on it for my first tank, because i love how little space it takes up in the tank, and it was well worth it. the different settings are also such a plus.
Best Pump Made Hands Down By Richard j on 10/10/12

First i started with 2 koralia 425 pumps and then added the hydor wavemaker controller for the two pumps. This worked farely well however i decided to upgrade to the mp10w es and WOW what a difference. I have a biocube 29 highly modified overstocked reef and being able to modify flow with the touch of a button is a must. I only have it turned up to 25% on reef crest mode and i may even have to turn it down. Its that powerful. All of my coral love it. This pump is so good i Bought another for my 8 gallon nano reef. And there a nice feature thats not advertised. I do not have them synched together being in different tanks , however when i put one infeed mode the other one accross the house goes into feed mode as well. The only bad thing is all the money i waisted trying to achieve what one of these pumps can on its own.
Great undertow By Edward on 9/28/12

I run two of these on my frag tank and my SPS love it. I had one, but the flow was not enough to cover the full 3 feet unless I turned up the pump. At this level, the polyp extension was too low. Now that I have two of them I can run them slower and everything is happy. The undertow is amazing. I used to think these were loud, but when I got my new one, I realized my old one was not supposed to whine. This one is absolutely silent! So if it whines (even at full speed), contact ES and they are very responsive.
Best pump I've ever owned By Timothy on 8/28/12

The title says it all. You can't go wrong with this pump. Pair them up and control modes with an apex/reefkeeper and you'll wonder why you never did this in the first place.
Ultra quiet, packed with features, and low profile. What other pump can give you all this while sitting half out of the tank?
ONLY WAY TO GO By Tammora on 8/25/12

I tried another brand on my 29 gal biocube but decided to go with the Vortech when I was satisfied. The ease of installation is unmatched as is the performance. Within a couple of weeks my flow related issued were gone. The Vortech worked so well I go two of the MP40ES units for my 320 gal tank.
Wow By Manny on 6/6/12

I never thought I would ever spend this much for propeller pumps, but I am so glad I did!! My flow is exceptional and having two talk to each other really works well.
My substrate is much cleaner than it ever was and my fish actually started playing in the flow as soon as I installed them.
Buy these jewels....you will NOT regret it!
Flow By robert on 6/4/12

A bit on the pricey side but after a bit of contimplation , I bought it and got to say in my 40 gal breeder its kicken about a 1.5" wave. It's also nice only having one pump doing the work that 3 pumps couldn't. Random flow mixed with varialbe speeds gets this as close to a natural enviornmeat as I've seen. Happy I got it and would buy agian.

This is my second mp10 my first one is 2yrs old and haven't had any problems besides getting a little more noisier than It was when I first purchased it. You can't go wrong with ecotech there quality is great. They are a little pricey but well worth it. There isn't another pump out there with this type of control or features.
