Manufacturer Info

EcoTech Marine has revolutionized the way people think about water movement in reef aquariums. Our technologically superior pumps produce unmatched broad yet gentle flow, while placing the motor outside the tank—preserving the beauty of your aquarium and enhancing the health of your aquarium ecosystem. The EcoTech leadership team consists of aquarium enthusiasts and engineers with a penchant for challenging the status quo. When EcoTech took root in the science labs of Lehigh University and University of Oklahoma, we realized there were serious differences between the native aquatic ecosystems in nature and the terrestrial habitats created in aquariums—and that little was being done to address this gap in the marketplace. Since that day, we have worked tirelessly to improve the “state of the art” to enable our customers to have the healthiest, safest and smartest aquarium possible. That’s why our products offer a wide variety of easy-to-program modes and have been thoroughly tested and endorsed by marine-biologists—making it the most versatile and life-like pump on the market.

Badly made

Yes these are cheaply made and no way worth their price, but if you have these pumps you need these covers. Lucky for me it's a customers system and he can afford to replace them often.

Guard for Anemone Bomb

3 foam cover in 1 package.Easy to install, just covering up wet side of MP-40 protects unexpected injury of fragile invertebrates.The day I covered motor with foam guard, found small sand-carpet anemone stucked with foam guard at night.No injury at all.Thanks to Marinedepot for quick delivery.

Great pump, bad foam cove

I love everything about this pump. I have had two of them for over a year and they live up to the hype. The only problem are these foam covers. If you use them, they have a life expectancy of about 2 months. I tried going without them and shreded two mexican turbos (sucked them out of their shells) one star fish, and two anenomes. Echotech: Make better covers!

Seam is too flimsy!

The first time I used one of the covers it ripped right down the seam and is not useable. The reason I bought the replacements was the cover that came with the pump ripped as well! The seam on these covers cannot withstand the slight bit of stretching it takes to put it on the pump. They need to be cleaned almost daily so it is not good when it rips after a couple of uses. Most of the time I don't put one on for this reason.

Vortech Foam Covers (3pk)

I bought the 3 pack of foam covers for the Vortech MP-40W which I had also ordered at the same time. I probably would not have ordered the 3 pack if I knew that the pump came with one! That said, it does fit over the pump well. Since the Vortech is always on, the foam collects algae and mysis shrimp etc. during feeding, but is easily rinsed off. The foam restricts the flow just a little, but the MP-40W is strong enough that it can easily compensate with a small adjustment. I have a couple Sharknosed Gobies that are very small, and my hope is (so far, so good) that this foams keeps them from getting shredded!

wow

Pretty incredible how much this powerhead moves water around in the tank. Overall tank health has improved. With this powerhead, I was able to remove all other power heads in my 29g reef. I'm very happy.
