Hello, fellow reefers
I have been in the hobby for two years with a lot of up and down,
Just like everyone new to the hobby. When i saw the price tag for this pump. I was shocked "465 for a pump that is even more expensive than an ipad mini. But after buying this pump . Its worth every dollar.
Ask any true reefer who has alot of the latest and greatest equipment.

This is a great product...it is expensive but it is an important part of any reef tank. The programming it not easy....the buttons don't really respond to touch very well ...push and hold....and be patient, processor is a little slow. It would be really nice to have software to program and upload to the controller. Really tough to program two or more up under your tank.
Great product By chefbill on 4/30/2014

This is the second one that I have purchased. I like the programing options and ease of use. The only down side is that you cant aim them in different directions to change flow patterns without moving the entire unit.

If you want the best it will cost you but you get what you pay for. High end quality and reliability.

as good as they claim. with so many options and variable speeds it is not hard to imagine why this is touted as the best in power heads. Although I wish it were a little less pricey, you do get what you pay for, and this is worth it.

This is a powerful pump. I have 2 MP40 in my 75 reef and these things really have a kick to them. In my opinion they are to powerful, I have them running at 30% max controlled by my apex. I initially had a problem with them stirring up my sand bed but I found a happy medium while getting enough flow through the tank. Placement is key with these, I have had them running for about 6 months and still am on the fence if placement is better more toward the back of the tank rather than mounted center on the sides. A little experimentation is needed. The build quality is more than exceptional. Great product distributed by BRS!!
Outstanding pumps... for a price By Nick on 4/30/2014

I've got two of these MP40wES' on my 90g FOWLR, and absolutely love 'em. Paired up with an Apex, you can do just about anything with them, and the fact that I'm now emptying my skimmer cup more often proves that these are doing a much better job of keeping the tank clean than my old Koralia's ever were. The only knock on them is the price, which is why I bought one of mine used and one during the recent 20% off sale.

Do I really need to review this? No, because the product and company reputation is already well known. I have all Ecotech lights and pumps. I can't imagine being happier with anything else. Well worth the money for this pump to accompany by MP10Ws.

I'm running 2 mp40wes pumps on a 75 gallon mixed reef tank.(48x18). i run them 70% at maximum..love the control and ease of these pumps.. i have them on both sides one higher then the other so the current is not crashing with each other..planning on upgrading my tank to a 120 (48x24x24) and running 3 mp40wes putting the third one on the back wall.. if could go back i would purchase 2 mp10wes for the back wall just because i don't need so much power in the rear pushing forward…i went bigger bc these motors ramping up and down can be a lil louder then a normal pump so running them on lower power helps.. it also helps to keep the motors cooler being they're not running as hard..the motor tends to heat up but definitely runs cooler at lower levels..and if you ever want to turn them up to stir things up prior a water change you can do so and really stir things up as well.. i run the light pink all day ( might be lagoon not sure but it alternates) and at 12am it goes into sleep mode for a few hrs before it turns back on to the light pink in the morning.. looking forward to mixing things up with different modes on my neptunes system and controlling my lights as well ( 3 radions xr30s ) over all great pump only negative really is they can get a lil loud and hot to the touch if ran on high a lil cooler if ran lower..the price is a lil high but anything good usually is in this hobby.. oh and there easy to clean and disassemble… if you have the money purchase them but don't believe there measurements this is one of those things to go bigger on and run lower power on then going smaller and running on maximum…

These pumps are super powerful and can create waves perfectly. Well worth the money. Don't waste time and money on anything else!

Best wave maker hands down. If you have the money (which is alot considering what its for), and you're wondering about this product, all of these reviews should answer any performance questions. They are worth it. Your fish, coral, and liverock will thank you.
Fantastic System By Corey on 4/30/2014

Although the cost can shy people away it saves a lot of money over having to have 5 or more of the other power heads and then a wave maker. The mp40's keep my acros looking great while being able to adjust the flow of both pumps with wireless up grade they come with standard now, keeps things simple. I use reef crest during the day then switch it over to lagoon at night. These two pumps were actually enough to power my 225 by them selves.
