Great powerhead By Albert on 6/29/2014Albert would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great powerhead for nanos. The large number of options you have with the programming is amazing compared to your standard powerhead. At first it may seem noisy, but it quiets down significantly over time. Although this version doesn't have the wireless chip, it can be purchased separately and easily installed into the driver from ecotech's website. This is a great option for nano reefers who want a great powerhead but also have limited budget and don't need the wireless capability right away. I would definitely recommend everyone try out this wonderful pump!

I have a 54 gallon bow front corner tank. Would 2 of the MP10 be better then one MP40? The tank is a mix of fish and SPS coral. FYI the tank is 24"deep.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Charles,
On a tank this size I would preffer the 2 mp10's but you do want to double check the thickness of the glass quick. If the glass is more then 3/8" you would need to use the mp40.

Can this pump be used with an apex controller or do I need the wireless version?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Tyler,
You would need the wireless version of the pump as well as the WXM module from Neptune.
