    Hey everyone. Don't know if anyone has been having the same problem as me but I've been looking for another 250 pump to add to my system and been hard to find any anywhere. Sounds like Maxspect is upgrading to a new model, a 300 series to replace the 200s (haven't been able to confirm that)...

    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 have a 30 gallon JBJ all in one system. There is no sump, just filters in the back. The main flow for the tank comes from the pumps that return the water from the back of the tank to the front, and they rest at the top of the tank, just below water level. I'm sure if anyone is curious you...

    Hi, so, I've had my GBTA for not even a month. Yesterday, the two power heads I have in my tank stopped working, so I had to use an old power head until the store opens tomorrow. I put some pantyhose over the part where the water gets sucked in, but when I came home from work, my bta was stuck...

I cannot seem to get the right mix between either having dead spots were debris literally builds up on the...

    Hi, Just a quick question: Does anyone know if the controller for the jebao wp wavemakers will work on different models? So for example will a controller that has been used with a wp10 powerhead work with a wp25 powerhead? They seem the same to me. Thanks
