The Vectra Advantage
When used with the ReefLink, your Vectra pump can send you performance and status alerts right to your mobile device or computer. Your return pump is the heart of your aquarium; the faster you hear about an unexpected issue the more successful you will be as an aquarist.
- Quiet Operation
Traditional AC pumps, when used as a return pump for your sump, are flow controlled through the use of a choke valve. This method of control is inherently inefficient for two reasons. 1) The AC pump purchased must often be overpowered for your given setup to allow for flexibility. 2) By adding artificial impedance to your flow, electricity is wasted. The Vectra pump will always operate at the optimum efficiency because there is no need to use a flow restricting valve to achieve your desired flow rate.

Quiet, Easy to setup, Plenty of power By Jon on 4/22/2020Jon would recommend this product to a friendUsing this as the return pump on my Red Sea 200XL. Using it at ~50% power. Works great. Controller is easy to setup. Would love it if it was working with Mobius (looking forward to future update). Would be nice if the barbs were included, but it is nice that they are an inexpensive accessory.
Exactly what I wanted/needed By Codey on 12/14/2019Codey would recommend this product to a friendOriginally I was looking at the M2 because I was used to having to go bigger with flow due to 90’s in my plumbing and a head height of about 6 feet. I have a somatic sump with the return pump basket so I was limited on size so the S2 pump was my only option. Turns out it’s all I needed. This Pump is near silent, and is more than powerful with what I need. I was able to open my valves completely and up my flow for the entire tank all while using this pump on its lowest setting. I’m am very pleased with this pump as I was hesitant on pulling the trigger with its price. In the long run I’m excited to attach a battery backup to this pump also.
Currently using as a return pump on my 65g Reef tank
super silent By jeremy on 11/19/2019jeremy would recommend this product to a friendI can’t believe how strong this pump is for having such a small foot print. Worth every penny, will be buying a 2nd for mixing station
Amazing By Chris W on 9/25/2019Chris W would recommend this product to a friendThis is my first controllable return pump and I can say I am not disappointed in it at all. Give me plenty of flow for my return and for my manifold for my carbon reactor. I would defiantly recommend this to everyone.
Perfect By Claude on 6/16/2019Claude would recommend this product to a friendThe search for the perfect return pump is over
excellent By simon on 6/6/2019simon would recommend this product to a friendexcellent little pumps, small foot print, quiet, controllable what more can you ask for!
Small and Powerful By Yang Zheng on 6/6/2019Yang Zheng would recommend this product to a friendThis pump rocks.....totally controllable and also totally powerful for the size package.....it is a go to pump...with great customer support too....
Dead Silent, easy to install By Samuel on 4/24/2019Samuel would recommend this product to a friendI’m using this on my SR-120 AIO tank so I can’t speak about head height. The pump is dead silent and seems to move a lot of water. I’m running it at about 30% as a single return pump.
The plumbing was standard and easy to setup but be advised you will need to use PVC glue/primer. The trade off is that unions are easy to install/uninstall for maintenance but the specific connection setup is permanent vs other pumps that have threaded fittings.
I’m using EcoTech Live and the pump was immediately found in the web interface and setup was quick and easy.
What are the dimensions of this pump. Can I use it as a return pump in the Sapphire Sump 26 (return section 5"x12.5"). thank you
It would fit as the Footprint of the pump is - 3.8" L x 6.5" W.
