A description of the modes can be found here:

EcoSmart Tidal Swell Mode


In this EcoSMART mode water is circulated to create a harmonic balance in your aquarium reminiscent of the changing flow conditions that would be found in nature. Over the course of several hours, the flow pattern will go from very chaotic with an emphasis on left to right flow direction to an emphasis on right to left flow direction, all the while experiencing calm period in between and followed by a great surge of flow at the very end of the cycle. Adjusting the dial changes the maximum speed achieved at any time during this mode. Slave pumps should be positioned opposite the master and on the back of the tank to take full advantage of the EcoSMART modes.

EcoSmart Nutrient Transport Mode



In this EcoSMART mode, water is circulated in a two phase program consisting of wave motion to stir up detritus and surging motion to move the detritus into your overflow where it can be skimmed out. This effect promotes maximum health and nutrient export, as well as increased growth for sensitive corals such as SPS. Adjusting the dial changes the maximum speed achieved at any time during this mode. Slave pumps should be positioned opposite the master and on the back of the tank to take full advantage of the EcoSMART modes.

Classic Reef-Crest and Lagoonal Random Modes



In random mode you can toggle between two different modes, Reef-Crest and Lagoonal. When a pump is in Lagoonal Random Mode, the dial is used to set the maximum operational speed, and the driver will automatically randomize the pumps output to simulate either a high (Reef-Crest) or low (Lagoonal) energy reef environment. If this pump is a master, the associated slave pumps will replicate the master in sync or anti-sync modes.

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.

I have had this pump up and running for a little over a week and already I can tell my corals, fish and anemone are loving the ocean like flow. I had been using a Koralia evolution 600GPH in my JBJ 28gal tank and then switched to this MP10WES. It not only creates a more ocean like environment, it a...Read More

I have a 90 gal cube aquarium, and before purchasing my Vortech pumps I has three Hydors and a Red Sea wave maker. It was an OK system but noisy and consumed a lot of electricity. Can't believe the difference in my corals since installing the Vortech 40wES and 10wES! Just with the two pumps I'm g...Read More

This is a excellent pump. It's a great investment if you have a reef tank. Before my corals wouldn't open some polyps and wouldn't look as healthy as they do when I got my mp10W. It's a great product if your looking to buy a pump and a wave maker.

I finally connected my MP-10 wES VorTech pumps to my Neptune Apex system and it's amazing how the pumps work in harmony to move water and change water flow throughout my 60 gallon reef tank. The corals and fish are happier and the tank looks natural. The pumps are on a time sequence that starts at...Read More

I've tried many pumps over the past several years and nothing has compared to the power and flexibility of the vortech pump. It always seemed like a very expensive pump but considering the the other pumps that I use to litter my tank with never really ever created the flow that I was looking for, ...Read More
