The next evolution of VorTech Pumps are quieter than ever with up to 90% less motor noise! Dynamic and versatile, the MP10w provides the power you require in your fresh or salt water aquarium. Great for creating the water flow your corals need to mimic their natural environments, the pump also helps eliminate dead spots in your aquarium, improving water quality and reducing algae growth.
The magnetic couple design keeps the motor driver on the outside of the aquarium, reducing unwanted heat and eliminating the chance of electrical discharge within the aquarium.With each VorTech Pump, you gain full control over the flow of water with the following modes:
Reef Crest Mode: perfect for SPS corals, it simulates high-energy reef environments, with crashing waves and surging tides
Gyre Mode: creates clockwise/counterclockwise movements, at selectable intervals between 2 seconds and 2 hours
Short Pulse Mode: uniform high and low levels at selectable intervals between 0.2 and 2 seconds
Tidal Swell Mode: mimics balanced flow conditions found in nature, changing from chaotic to calm with a cycle ending surge simulating a detritus clearing surge
Nutrient Transport Mode: two phased program that features a wave motion to clear detritus and a surging motion to clear the detritus towards your filter flow
Feed Mode: temporarily stop water flow to allow food to be introduced to the system and prevent it from being swept away into the filter
Night Mode: gentler night cycle to mimic calmer ocean conditions
Wave Auto-Tune: creates a customized standing wave to fit your system
VorTech pumps can be fully maintained wirelessly with the EcoTech ReefLink (sold separately) and EcoSmart Live software, allowing you to monitor and control the pump from your computer or smart phone application!
