Worried about price? So was I... By Jay on 9/24/12

The vortech was appealing because of its features and the small in tank foot print, But the price was scary! I cant say at almost $500 its a value and it sure did add a bunch of extra cords but over all i am happy. People seemed to have 2 issues with there pumps, that they were loud and too powerful. My pump did quite down after a day or 2 of running but its not what I would call quite, but at lower speeds it blends into the back round. I have a 75 gal tank (48x18x18) and when at one end of the tank even at full blast it doesnt move around the sand or blow water out of the tank. If the pump was 1/2 as much it would be a 5 star buy all the way.

I will admit that I was a little skeptical about what this pump could do but now i'm convinced it was worth all the money. I couldn't believe my eyes when I turned it on for the first time on max speed. The amount of detritus that was pushed off my rocks was shocking. This is a must have.

The mp40 works very well, they put flow out to about 3 feet in the aquarium which is quite a bit. The features are nice when you have two of them as they work best in at least a pair. Only downside is they cost a ton of cash just to add flow to the tank.

I have been impressed with the pair of MP40's that I purchased. Only down side is they can be tricky to configure. But, besides that, I have been pleased.

This is the best pump hands down. I was worried when I decided to buy it because I had heard that they were loud. I can tell you that mine is quiet!! Noticed a big difference in the polups on my acros the first 5 hours.
Great purchase... By joseph on 7/30/12

The MP40w ES was one of the best purchases I have made. I have 2 running on my 90 callon.

Great pump, actually FUN to use. With all the work we have to do for our tanks, it's nice to have a toy every once in awhile that is a joy to use. Can't wait to buy a second and have them work together
Need earmuffs By Justin on 7/9/12

The flow is amazing but it comes at a huge price(the noise). The pump has been broken in and setup correctly but the noise is still unbearable. I will be returning the pump and getting a Tunze.
If noise is not a concern, this is the pump to get. I did noticed a difference in my tank within 2 days.
It does move water... By Matt on 7/4/12
Matt would recommend this product to a friend
It does move water, but it's flimsy, inflexible and over-priced. Having the motor outside the tank is a gimmick IMO and just looks ugly on the outside of the tank and creates potential for the pump "wet side" to be knocked (torqued) off into your corals or rocks if the pump jams for any reason. Don't skimp on the sticky pads to hold the cord on the outside of the tank for the same reason.
This pump will flow an area about 2' x 3' depending on your rock and coral layout.
