- NemProtect Powerhead Guard for Vortech MP60 - 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!

Perfect answer to keeping fish & corals safe. By Nonemos on 1/25/2019Nonemos would recommend this product to a friendI'm not sure what instructions people need with these things. They literally just slip right on. Easy to clean and maintain too. The front cover is removable, which allows for easy removal from the wet side.
I rest much easier knowing these things are keeping my critters safe from the powerful flow of my powerheads.
Works great! By ReefAce on 1/19/2019ReefAce would recommend this product to a friendMy only complaint is that there are no instructions; I guess they figure you don’t need instructions cuz all you have to do is jam it onto the wet side. Good luck getting it off for cleaning.
Seems to work fine By ReefAce on 1/18/2019ReefAce would recommend this product to a friendI’d give it a 5 but there are no instructions on how to properly attach it. Just jam it on the wet side? Turn and twist? I just guessed and jammed it on there and it seems to be holding but seriously no instructions whatsoever is kind of pathetic.
