- NemProtect Powerhead Guard for Vortech MP10 - Wavemaker Guards
With the recent influx of 3D printed products hitting the market, there have been a handful of innovative products. The new NemProtect stands out as a really great answer to the needs of anemone keepers everywhere. Flow is a critical element in reef and anemone tanks, but powerheads pose a serious risk to wandering anemones. Not only can a powerhead destroy a prized anemone, but the result can threaten the entire tank if not caught immediately.
One of the most popular solutions for in-tank flow is the Ecotech Vortech pumps. While the foam guards can keep anemones from getting pulled into the wet side cage, they clog quickly with detritus and reduce flow dramatically. The new NemProtect guards create a greater surface area for water flow while simultaeniously diffusing the intake suction and increasing distance from the powerhead. The Nemprotect literally just slips onto the wet side of the Vortech pump and stays put via friction fit. The front of the cover comes off, facilitating removal from the wet side for maintenance. Anemones can't get through the numerous tiny holes, and the high surface area of the guard avoids clogging and reduces flow loss. The result is a long-lasting, low maintenance anemone guard that improves overall flow in the system; a win-win!
- Wider, gentler intake flow

Don't bother By Tony on 7/15/2019Tony wouldn't recommend this product to a friendFirst off the cover is enormous. Secondly, any anemone with tentacles long enough to make you want to protect it from a powerhead will still manage to get caught up through these covers. It's already happened to my BTA and Ritteri. Waste of money.
Works perfect! By Ono on 3/8/2019Ono would recommend this product to a friendMost of reefer using the foam guard to protect an anemone or small fish in their tank but original foam guards we have to clean it so often because they correct all type of foods. This nemprotect! it’s make my life so easier. Most of the foods like mysis, brineshrimp even pellet can get through the guard without correcting food around them. They are clean and do not mess with flow. If you want to save time of cleaning and protect your livestock, I really highly recommend. I’m so happy BRS carry these!!
Changes head flow By Jayson on 2/15/2019Jayson would recommend this product to a friendFits right on the wet side no issues. It’s pretty big when installed. You will lose the jet flow pattern. It turns it into a wide cone pattern instead.
