    Anyone see who won this contest? I didn't enter but there was one on there about a sick kid and they didn't win. The one who won was a commercial for ecotech... Kind of mad the kid didn't win. :angry: Sorry needed to vent.

    I was told Ecotech's Vortechs are quasi silent. However, when I put them to medium flow, their "whine" is anything but silent in a room that does not have the TV on. This whine is really quite annoying actually. Per the forums, turns out some find them acceptable, others find the whine too...

    Planning a reef tank, 60l by 24w by 30h. Mostly SPS, but also LPS and softies. Are ecotech marine pro led worth the extra £500 over eg AI vega? (Will need 3 units) Do ecotech pro's really improve coral growth more than Ai VEGA OR HYDRA? Are they much brighter? Better for 30h tanks? Calling...

    I finally got my mp10! Lovin it already. I know that most people usually mount theirs higher in the tank (just a few inches below surface). There are 2 versions of the manual online....I thought I had read the "full" version....but I hadn't. Then, after install, I was trying to fine tune and...

    I was wondering if there was a thread where people can share different Radion schedules/programs that they custom made. I am new to the Radions and would like to see how other people are running theirs. If there is a thread for it already can someone post the link for it or maybe we can start...

    I decided to move up to a 75 and in turn will not be able to afford a second Radion. It has been over my tank for 3 weeks and is in new condition. I am asking $700 +shipping with the hanging kit. I will post pics later, but this is an awesome light. Hate to get rid of it.

    Hey all, Having been home for a few days over the holidays, I have been able to see a few 'storms' with the Ecotech Radion LED lights - and the behavior of the tank inhabitants is interesting. I have a Carpet anemone that really 'balls up' as if protecting itself - different than when it just...

    Hello, Long-time lurker, only posted a few times, but finally getting the specs of my tank up on the forum. My tank has been evolving over the last 6 months, and I guess I was on Santa's "Nice" list this year, so with a couple new additions, I'm finally at a point where I feel I'm ready to start...

    Well I bought the ecoxotic back in June and I am none to happy with myself for not doing my research and realizing the diversity in LED's now. So I wanted to try to start a discussion on the matter. First I want to compare power, and these are based on setup to cover 24x24 inchs of tank and...

    Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing well, and also your tanks are flourishing. I was looking into another powerhead, and really like the Ecotech Vortech, but the price is not very friendly for me. I know it is a good value for everything it offers, but if anyone has a used one, or is able...
