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.

Q
Is it the same size as the mp40WD
My magnet on the Wetside of my mp40WD, has gotten a bubble somehow. I was wondering if the base on this item is the same size base as the regular mp40wd

A
The diameter of the wet-side assembly is close but not exact to the dry side assembly. The dry side diameter is indeed slightly larger.

REVIEW
One of my mp40's propellor got stuck for some reason. I tried cleaning it and it did not budge. Luckily, I bought an extra and I just placed it on and not issues in my tank. They are very sturdy and once I got my old one in a vinegar bath, it was ready for use.
