The EcoTech Marine MP60 is intended for large tanks. Spanning up to one inch of glass and capable of 7,500 gallons per hour, the MP60 is an impressive feat of design and engineering. EcoSmart and wireless come standard with the MP60. VorTech pumps offer a low profile and broad flow. With a magnetically coupled design, heat and wires are kept out of the tank. No accessories to buy for wave making or multi-pump use also make VorTechs a great value.

Features
  • New Standards for Flow
    The VorTech line features low-profile, broad-flow pumps for aquariums ranging from 2.5 gallons to 1,000+ gallons (9.5 to 3,800+ liters). Every product from EcoTech Marine is backed by our industry-leading customer service.
  • Size Does Matter
    The VorTech line features the smallest propeller pumps on the market when you consider how little space they occupy inside the aquarium.
  • Watch Your Reef, Not Your Pump
    The VorTech is beautiful in its simplicity. The motor is outside of the aquarium, meaning the VorTech may be positioned where it is least visible.
  • Wireless Connectivity
    Communicate wirelessly with other EcoTech pumps and lighting for even greater control and flexibility.
  • Eco-friendly
    External motor mounting means less heat in the water, reducing the need for cooling, and the advanced brushless motor design reduces electricity consumption.
  • Completely Safe
    No electrical components ever touch the water.
  • Customizable Wave Modes
    Wave modes can be customized for your unique tank setup.
  • Versatile Flow Rates
    Adjustable flow rates create a more natural circulation for your unique ecosystem.
  • Healthy Undertow
    A natural undertow is created along the sand bed, leading to a healthier ecosystem.
  • Quick Cleanup
    Wet-side cleaning is a breeze.
Operational Modes
  • Constant Speed Mode
    Pump runs continuously at a constant speed which can be set by the user.
  • EcoSmart Nutrient Transport Mode (NTM)
    A two phase program to promote maximum health and nutrient export, as well as increased growth for corals. Alternates between a resonant standing wave and a surge effect to stir up and export nutrients.
  • EcoSmart Tidal Swell Mode (TSM)
    Creates a harmonic balance in your aquarium reminiscent of the changing flow conditions that would be found in nature. Flow varies from left to right, right to left, calm, and ends with a great surge.
  • Reef Crest Random Mode
    Reef Crest Random Mode simulates the high-energy conditions of a natural reef crest environment.
  • Lagoonal Random Mode
    Simulates the gentler reef zone found in a natural lagoon.
  • Short Pulse Mode
    Allows for wave pulse timings between 0.3 and two seconds, enabling the creation of FAST alternating flow throughout the tank. Use this mode to create a resonant standing wave.
  • Long Pulse Mode
    Allows for wave pulse timings of between two seconds and 60 seconds, enabling the creation of slow alternating flow throughout the tank.
  • Feed Mode
    Slows down pump to allow user to feed aquarium. User can select the duration and speed for Feed Mode.
  • Night Mode
    Automatically reduce speed and operates continuously at that speed for a period of time during the night. User can select the duration and speed for Night Mode.
  • Battery Backup Mode
    When used with the EcoTech battery backup accessory, the VorTech pump will switch to Battery Backup Mode in the event of a power outage and will operate at a user set speed. The LED’s on your EcoSmart driver will count down to indicate how much power is available within the battery.
  • Auto-Dim
    LEDs are turned off and display knob dimmed significantly, but pump functions in its current mode. User can program how long after use before the driver enters Auto-Dim.
  • On/Off Switch
    Tap the on/off switch to turn off and turn on a pump. Hold this button to turn off all pumps in a master/slave group. Tap any pump in the groups’ on/off switch and that pump will turn back on.

nice cept for price

Works very well. No dead spots in tank any more. Lots of current. Settings are ok. Doesnt reverse current as a single unit. Only pushes water. Noise is a non issue. Would be five stars if price wasnt so crazy. Need a chinese knockoff to bring market back to reality. Would recommend to others if they could find it cheaper.

Its the best I've seen yet. I bought 2 of these for my 120 gal. and ended up putting 1 of them on my 75 gal. tank. I guess as they are so expensive we will see if we get our money's worth.

LOUD

Don't plan on using these in an area where you will be spending a lot of time. If you can use them in a fish room they are probably ok and DO push a lot of water. Too much noise for me though.

Great Wavemaker!

Pros: Very good service! Small footprint. Great undertow. This wavemaker is really strong. It's very reliable and well built. The noise is not loud in my opinion. I love how easy it is to use and setup. I had a 2" wave in my 220 (72X24X30) in about 5 minutes no joke. Now for the cons: Very pricey! Propellor damaged very easy upon setting it up in tank. To Ecotech's defense I called them and they replaced the entire wet side for free. It put tiny circle scratches on my accrylic tank due to the entire wet side slightly spinning. Make sure it is seated on the glass really well before starting it. Besides that I wouldn't buy anything else.

Overated

I bought 3 of these and I must say they were very disappointing to say the least. They are definitely strong but also a little noisy for my taste. I dropped one (like I do with a lot of equipment) but you can't do that with these. Once the wheel is slightly out of balance, the noise was unbearable. So dropping it or not, expect some noise.

Flow like no other

This is a great product. The flow in my 160g Bowfront reef is like the ocean now. I love the modes this thing offers. It does a wonderful job of keeping detritus and other debris in suspension and making it's way to the sump.I recommend this product to anyone.
