I'm thinking about investing in new pumps. I have sun sun and koralia right now lol. I have a mixed reef in my 40B with clam, goni, various sps, but it'll be half and half eventually. I was thinking 2 Rw-15 but it might be too strong so 2 Rw-8's? I also bought an MP10 but going to sell it since I heard it isn't enough? Unless it would be so let me know

I have tw WP-10 on my tank running at 100% on random and it does GREAT! I will post a video and show it this afternoon when the light is at 100%. But I think one Rw-8 will work great tbh or two RW-4 on opposite of the tanks will do as well as the WP-10. I am looking into the RW-8 while running the WP-10 for 100x turnover rate.

Well like I said half and half. But probably mostly sps. I am keeping the clam and goniopora so I don't want bashing flow but enough for sps and some low flow areas for my Lps. But would a vortech mp-10 be sufficient enough?

The MP-10 might work with your tank. Check other build threads for 40B. But I am satisfied with two WP-10 (1000GPH) but I do have an overflow and return so that adds more.

Got it for $194 new so that's worth 2 jebaos so just wondering. Any threads you seen with good data?

the Vortech is worth 3-4 WP-10/RW-4, 3 RW-8 and yes two RW-15 almost. I would get the JEBAO since you can get more out of it BUT the Vortechs are highly sought for quality wavemakers.

Here is a thread from RC:

I can't vouch for the video since I am unable to video it at work but hope that will give you a good idea. Also I can't vouch for the MP10 since I do not have one BUT from experience having two WP-10 works well for me now. If you want to see, I will post a video this afternoon around 1700 EST for you and see the flow of my tank. I currently have a LPS dominate tank but the flow looks GREAT! I am working my way to SPS but that depends though.
