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.
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.
The VorTech line features the smallest propeller pumps on the market when you consider how little space they occupy inside the aquarium.
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.
Communicate wirelessly with other EcoTech pumps and lighting for even greater control and flexibility.
External motor mounting means less heat in the water, reducing the need for cooling, and the advanced brushless motor design reduces electricity consumption.
No electrical components ever touch the water.
Wave modes can be customized for your unique tank setup.
Adjustable flow rates create a more natural circulation for your unique ecosystem.
A natural undertow is created along the sand bed, leading to a healthier ecosystem.

Reef Crest Random Mode simulates the high-energy conditions of a natural reef crest environment.
Simulates the gentler reef zone found in a natural lagoon.
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.
Allows for wave pulse timings of between two seconds and 60 seconds, enabling the creation of slow alternating flow throughout the tank.
Slows down pump to allow user to feed aquarium. User can select the duration and speed for Feed 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.

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.
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.
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.
