MP10w ES 55 gal mixed reef By Nate on 3/5/14

I want to say these are awesome pumps. I had 2 1050 hydor pumps 2 750 hydor pumps and one tunze pump in my 55 gal to get the right flow for my mixed reef. I looked everywhere to see if 2 MP10s would be enough or to go with the MP40's. I took a gamble on the MP10s and I was shocked how much they do. They give out better flow patterns then the other pumps I had. So if someone is on the fence 2 MP10s are enough flow for a mostly sps dominated tank. I have this paired up to my Apax and love them. I will say that you will have to adjust the wet side if you hear a vibrating noise. I called EcoTech they had me take the wet side apart and put it back together and they are silent. I love them! thanks EcoTech!!

Before purchasing this pump I had 2 Koralia 600's in my 40 gallon tank. I could not seem to get good flow other than where the pumps were pointing at. This pump has changed everything for me. I purchased only one of these and everything has changed in my tank. My corals are looking better and seem to be more full. I love the short pulse mode to make a beautiful wave in my tank. Also the nutrient export mode does a nice job of cleaning your tank of detritus. Very easy setup, and simple instructions to get the mode that is right for you. Only thing I would say negative about this is the price. Although, the price is high it is worth it.

I got 2 pumps for my 60 gal reef tank. They were easy to set up and program. They are awesome!!!! The fish and corals seem to really enjoy the water movement. With so many features, great water flow , they are well worth the money.

Purchased one MP10w ES to replace 2 Koralia's for my 33gallon mixed reef. The settings and features of this pump is just insane! Not only do I see a difference, but my fish and corals also feel the difference! Reefcrest mode is probably my favorite, and it's endless custom options will suit ANY tank!!! Highly recommended!

If your on the ball about this wavemaker because of price, just get it. Youll spend more money in the long run trying different setups of pumps and controllers. I always was put off by Ecotechs high price tag but after trying it out, it was worth every penny. Huge current and undertow, low intank profile and a wavemaker controller second to none. All in all, money well spent.
Awsome pump By Patrick on 1/25/14

Currently have two MP10w ES on a 30gallon setup. Initially I tried to save a few dollars and bought the first pump without the wireless module. When I bought the second pump I also had to buy a the wireless module for the first pump to take full advantage of the pumps. I've tried many different pumps and I've never had anything move water like these things do. The user interface and setup of multiple pumps has room for improvement.
Yes they cost more but in my opinion they are worth it. Really helps to keep the clutter out of the display area of your tank.
I wish they had a module for the ReefKeeper to be able to control the modes different modes.
Great addition to my MP40 By The Kiwi on 1/16/14

I got this pump to place on the opposite end of my 90 gallon tank from my MP40. The MP40 is powerful enought to reach the full length of my tank, but I wanted to add extra flow to eliminate any dead spots between my live rock at the other end. As always, the Vortech pumps run flawlessly out of the box and it was very simple to sync to my MP40 as a slave pump. The nutrient transport mode on these pumps is amazing! I removed so much extra crap off my rocks that I didn't even notice before.
I wanted this smaller one because having 2 MP40s would have been too much flow in my mixed reef tank, and I figured there was no point buying the more expensive pump that I would probably only run at 60-70% anyway to avoid blowing corals off the rocks! My SPS, LPS, and softs are all extremely happy and growing like weeds.
Although these are expensive, they are worth it in the long run for the features they offer and the huge amount of flow they put out. Also I can control them with my APEX when I get the wireless module which was a huge plus for me. You won't regret buying these pumps!
Excellent Pump! By James on 1/14/14

I have two of these running on my 90 gallon reef and they provide plenty of random flow throughout the whole tank. I control both of them with the Apex WXM module to change the operating modes throughout the day. I don't have dead spots anymore and nuisance algae are practically nonexistent now.
Freshwater too! By Robert on 12/18/13

I have a fully densely planted 75 gallon tank. A uv sterilizer takes care of the green water and once i started using the mp10 there has been no algae on glass or leaves, i love it , id say use two at 75 gallons though, apex recognized it without any programing. I love it... Buy a spare pack of sponges, sometimes i change every day, sometimes once a week.

Recommend next size up... By Randy on 9/17/13

These are perfect for the smaller sized tanks as recommended, but don't skimp on these for larger tanks. Get the MP40wES if you have any question about needing more flow!
All in all, a great product for those of us who must have things discretely tucked away for that ultimate "clean" look! AND no heat exchange from the pump!
