great pump By matthew on 8/23/2014matthew would recommend this product to a friendI have had this pump for over a year now, this pump runs like a champ. I will be buying another one in a few days. Can't be happier!
It is the ONE! By Laz on 8/20/2014Laz would recommend this product to a friendThis pump is the one to get. Very impressed with it's flow and all the controls built into the pump. Love the low profile in the tank! Now onto saving the change to purchase another Vortech! Highly, highly recommended!
Love these for what they do, but... By Brent on 8/16/2014Brent would recommend this product to a friendAfter learning about the importance of alignment, I managed to get one of two pumps running silently. Unfortunately, it seems no matter what I do the second pump vibrates, and somewhat loudly, too, when the running at about 40 percent. I have tried rotating the pump, the motor, moving the pump/motor to different locations, but to no avail. For now, the it's bearable, and as I said, I love these pumps, working to gather, doing what they do well.
Very controllable but a little loud By tarheel on 8/8/2014tarheel would recommend this product to a friendThis pump has great options/features but it is much louder than I was expecting.
Lots of Options By Felix on 8/1/2014Felix would recommend this product to a friendIve been Used to using Hydor in the past. Nothing wrong with them. But after seeing these at a friends and what you can do with them and how much water it moves . I just ordered mine for a small 30g.i have since they take up less space the motor being on the outside.
Pricey but worth it By Charles on 6/23/2014Charles would recommend this product to a friendI wasn't sure if I was ready to spend the money for the upgrade to Eco Tech Vortech from my Hydor Evolution power heads. Well it's been 2 month now and I am glad I did. The corals growing at much faster rate than before.
The Best By MechEngineer on 5/22/2014MechEngineer would recommend this product to a friendIf you have the money, this is the best pump on the market. No wires in the display tank and eliminates heat transfer from the pump motor being outside of the tank. 4 out of 5 stars because as others reviews have noted there is a slight noise when you go above ~50% power. I run two on my 90 gal seahorse tank on the first or second settings so this doesn't bother me.
Pretty good pump By Chris on 5/6/2014Chris would recommend this product to a friendI was pretty skeptic to buy this pump at first because of the price, but if you have the budget to buy this then I think it's worth it. The customization on this pump is insane with the various settings to use on it. It does make a little bit of noise when ramping up to higher percentages but it's nothing that really bothers me personally when sitting 4 feet away while watching TV. I only run mine at 40% on a 29g tank so I imagine if it is being run at 100% it might make a bit more noise. If you have the money in your budget and want a pump that you can really customize to your liking, this is the pump for you.
There is a reason why its #1 By Daniel on 5/4/2014Daniel would recommend this product to a friendI switched to the MP10Wes after using marineland 800's. Number one reason I like it is my fish love it, and my LTA came out of its crevice and now peacocks around my tank. It mentions the feed mode which is great, but the sleep mode, which isn't mentioned, makes my system just a little bit easier by automatically remembering the time I put it on...by itself. I ordered an Apex but I won't be in a rush to get the WXM module because I don't see a need for it right away until I get multiple MP10's.
Great wavemaker! By Wayne on 4/30/2014Wayne would recommend this product to a friendI have a 30 gal system, and the mp10W is the perfect size for it. It makes a great wave, moves water like a champ! It comes with a little sponge sleeve to protect fish from getting chopped up if they're curious. I have a lawnmower blenny that never has had any trouble with it, even though I've seen the blenny INSIDE the head when I had it turned off. It's nice having the small one with the Wireless option, because if I want to upgrade in the future, I can simply buy another one, and mount it to the other side of the tank.
Louder than i expected By JoeSuff on 4/30/2014JoeSuff wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI was able to purchase one of these at a great price slightly used on C~glist from a guy shutting down his frag tanks. I was excited 'cause i was going to use it with a MP40w on a 120 tank and place it on the back glass behind the rock. Unfortunately when i added it to the tank i could hear the motor frequency wind out as i played with the different settings. I never was able to hear it in the in store display. But due to all the white noise in a store it never bothered me like it did in my living room. I plumed my sump to my basement just so i wouldn't have to listen to my tank. In the end I was able to exchange it for credit on a Calc reactor from the same person i purchased it from. My solution was a pair of Tunze 6055's they are almost dead silent.

Hello there, how many MP10w would be sufficient for a36" 58 gallon tank? thank you
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Mark,
For a tank that size two MP10's would be plenty of flow. Just double check the glass thickness to make sure your not over the max 3/8" thick glass limit of the MP10.
by Paul on August 3, 2014, @4:55 AM
I'm in the process of buying a 110 gallon tank (60x18x23). I'm looking at these pumps, and wonder whether I would be better off buying 2 MP10's, or 1 MP40? Or would I need a 2nd MP40?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Paul,
At least 1 pump on each side of the tank would be ideal. I usually suggest an mp40 to cover about a 2ft area, but with the 5ft tank a pair of MP40's should still be good. MP10's likely wouldn't have enough flow and usually the glass on a 110g tank will be thicker than the mp10 can operate with.
