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.

REVIEW
Fantastic addition to my 29g tank. Quite a few modes to run it on, plus a night and a feeding mode!! I was hesitant at first to get it out and try to set it up, but it was so easy!!

Mp10

REVIEW
Installed the mp10 on my 46 bowfront mix reef last week. So far so good. I replaced my jbj wave maker (moved to another tank. Yea I know, I'm an addict) with this mp10. I thought it wouldn't be strong enough since it's rated for tanks up to 50 gallons but I can't even turn the dial all the way up ca...Read More

Must have!

REVIEW
I had a Koralia 1 and a powerhead in my 34 gallon cube. Took those out and put in the MP10 - immediately kicked up all kinds of stuff from the rocks that was previously just dirtying up my tank. My clam is much happier and my tank is much cleaner and I don't have two bulky powerheads taking up valua...Read More

MP10

REVIEW
Small pump with decent power. I run it in a 58 gallon tank and it is strong enough on it's own to make waves. It'll make a .50 to .75 inch wave at the surface. Not bad for a tiny little pump. Fit and finish of the product is good. No loose parts, no rattles and no excessive noise. I do find the flas...Read More

REVIEW
I installed my new MP10 in my 28g JBJ Nano Cube HQI. I had previously been running a Koralia 1 to supplement the stock pumps. The difference running the MP10 is unbelievable! The flow is nothing short of amazing, and the randomness associated with the various built-in modes is something no other pum...Read More

i never thought i would do it

REVIEW
I didn't think I would ever spend this much money on a pump, but it is well worth it. I have it in my jbj 28, and it is perfect with flow. It replaced my maxi jet 1200, and the tank looks much nicer now. I run mine on lagoon mode near 100 percent about 4 or 5 inches from the top of the tank. It stir...Read More

A bit too loud

reviewerbadge
REVIEW
Interesting pump. Very cleaver, innovative, and has incredible features. I found super easy to use and very attractive inside the tank. Unfortunately, this thing is LOUD. And it's not an alignment issue because even with the wet end removed, the motor assembly is just very loud and rattles. Over all...Read More
