NemProtect Pump Guard for EcoTech Marine VorTech MP40


Item #: 7N4940

In Stock

Having great flow throughout our reefs help bring nutrients to all its inhabitants, and keeps detritus from settling, adding to an overall healthy reef system.  However, having great flow increases the chance of some of our aquarium occupants being drawn in.  NemProtect was specifically designed to protect these marine residents, such as anemones and other small inverts or fish from being sucked into the pump and to their demise, easily installing over EcoTech Marine`s VorTech pump - one of the lead wavemakers in the industry.  

There are foam guard options on the market, however, they do have a tendency clog up with any free floating organics, eventually causing the flow to slow.  The perforated cage of NemProtect ensures that the flow is constant while still protecting the pump from livestock.

NemProtects are 3D printed of PETG plastic and REEF SAFE!

Works Perfect

This works perfect! The foam that was included in the MP40 worked great, but clogged with food easily. This fits on easy and safe for fish to be around.

Changes the flow

Pros: Keeps anemones safe

Cons: Can insert too far, bulky, changes the flow

These are a great idea but have a few problems. They're bulky. You can easily insert the powerhead too far and it's difficult to get out. Plus, they completely change the flow you have them set on. Had to return mine as they didn't work for me.
