The only power head I will EVER buy By Heinz on 6/26/11

There are times to try and save money and buy a cheaper alternative but this IS NOT one of them. These pumps are well thought out designed extremely well and have an awesome set of built in programs. It is unobtrusive taking up very little space on the side of the tank; I like to look at my reef not my pumps stretching out into the middle of my tank. They are quiet I have a 75 gallon tank in the bed room and the last thing you need at night is a noisy pump cycling. Save up if you need to but DO NOT buy anything else. For a 75 gallon tank you will need a MP40W ES and a MP10W ES.

SHOULD'VE BOUGHT THIS A LONG TIME AGO, NOW I HAVE 4 AQUA CLEAR POWERHEADS LAYING AROUND COLLECTING DUST. THIS THING REALLY DOES A GREAT JOB MOVING WATER THROUGHOUT THE TANK.
Excellent Wave Maker By Siloex on 5/1/11

I think this is the Ferrari of all wave makers. Unbelievable movement and a whole slew of options at your disposal. The thing even has a calm mode to simulate night conditions. This is a little on the expensive side but you definitely get what you pay for with this product.
Well worth the money!!! By Michael on 4/5/11

I put off going to these for a long time because of the cost. If I would have bought these to start I would have actually spent less. the wave function is incredible. 2 will make a 1" standing wave in a 6' tank. 1 will handle anything 4' and if your tank is under 4 feet look at mp10's. the flow rate is misleading because it is such a huge push of a wall of water instead if a stream. my frogspawn just sort of wave back and forth in the flow with the pumps set at a little more than half.

I bought two of these and man they are awesome. They move water like nothing else. After you buy them, you won't think twice about the price.

Pricey but Fantastic By Shane on 1/8/11

The MP40 is a fantastic pump - but pricey. Like most folks, I have a pair of them so they can work off of each other. Very solid build - highly recommend a single or a set of these to folks that have descent sized tanks and like a lot of flow. Be careful with your sand size.
This pump rocks! By Chris on 12/22/10

It will send a wave across a 6 foot tank, it's a challenge to program, the service is near perfect, all in all best pump hands down. That said, if you have anything dumb enough to swim into this, your going to loose him.....
The foam covers are cheap/worthless and until Vortech comes out with something better watch out for your inverts!
