  • The world famous GEO calcium reactor!

Our reactors are fabricated using only the finest cast acrylic materials and high quality fittings. Designed with the user in mind, we feel these are by far the easiest reactors on the market to install, operate and maintain. Bottom up flow of water captures free CO2 and draws it back into the pump. This means less gas in the reactor and less gas in the effluent. There is no need for a second single pass chamber with our design.

These reactors include all of the fittings and tube required for normal installation. The user will need to supply the media, CO2 equipment and feed pump.

EcoTech Marine VorTech MP10 Propeller Pump

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

“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.”
