    It's been a while since I've posted, but I am starting a new build. I am downgrading my 90 to a SCA 50G Starfire cube. Needed something that would be easier to maintain while I ride these waves of life. Ecotech states the mp10 will only work on glass that is up to 9.5mm thick. The Starfire...

    I have an older MP40w that i am wanting to trade for a MP10. It is the older style with the white control. It works absolutely great. It hasn't been used in maybe 3 years, just sitting in storage. I would like to trade first and if no one wants to i will consider selling.

    I was wondering if anyone has used mp10s on a 93 gallon cube, or in general with a tank whose glass thickness is 10mm. On vortechs website it says the max thickness for glass is 9.5 . I am just wondering if anyone has them on 10mm thickness and if they notice any types of issue.

    Hello. Recently I purchased a mp10 for my reef tank with 1/4" glass, which it says in the instructions it is rated for that thickness. When I went to tinker with the pump today I realized that the magnet was very weak and when I tried to adjust it, it wouldn't stick. I read through all the...

    This will be my build thread for my Red Sea Max 130. I recently got an incredible deal on the tank from a friend and I decided to transfer the contents from my 29 gallon tank into the Red Sea Max. Since I was able to get the tank for cheap, I had some funds available for a lot of upgrades and...

    Alright, so I've heard from some places that using the MPs whether it's the 10/40/60 that running them in the pulse/wave mode is very bad for them. Which I can kind of understand.
