View Full Version : Ecotech Marine Powerhead Question

11-29-2010, 04:56 AM
I'm in the process of upgrading my 29 gallon saltwater tank to 50g tank and was wondering what people would recommend for the powerheads...

1 or 2 Ecotech Marine VorTech MP10 ES Water Pump


1 Ecotech Marine VorTech MP40w ES Water Pump

The tank will have sugar fine sand and live rock from my 29g, 2 clowns, 1 lawnmower blenny, a large toadstool, several zoas, kenya tree, brain, frogspawn, pulsating xenia, green star polyps and some ricordia.

I have one MP10 in my 36" long 33 gallon tank and it provides lots of flow.

If your going to put 2 mp10's in the wireless models mrsp is 299.99. I would then put a 40 in and dial it down. It depends on what you want to keep. I got a mp 10 in my cube with my carpets. It depends a ton on rock work on weather you will have enough flow also.
