EcoTech Marine VorTech MP10 Propeller Pump

Posted on Sunday, May 17th, 2009 at 3:52 pm by

“Designed especially for nano-reef aquariums, the MP10 from EcoTech Marine is a small yet powerful pump. The MP10 – ideal for tanks from 2.5 to 50 gallons tanks – creates gentle flows of 200 to 1,575 gallons per hour, helping the tanks feel more like the ocean. The MP10 shares the same award-winning technology as the MP40w and lets you take full control of the flow. With all the electrical components outside the aquarium and a variety of easy-to-program modes, the VorTech is the safest, most versatile pump on the market.”
