Ecotech Marine VorTech MP10 Propeller Pump w/ EcoSMART Driver
Magnetic couple transmits motion through your aquarium glass and clamps the assembly against your tank. This means you won’t have to drill your aquarium, and that you can easily reposition the pump somewhere else in the aquarium without having to move around complicated and awkward brackets.
The VorTech produces from 200 to 1575 gallons per hour of low velocity gentle water current. The flow is so impressive and broad, that it actually creates an undertow along your sand bed. You will notice an equal amount of flow going out of your pump as you will see going back into it! Moreover, because the flow pattern is so wide, there is no reason to direction the flow, simply place the pump on the back or sides of your aquarium and flow will be created throughout the whole tank.
The VorTech is one of the most efficient pumps on the market, consuming approximately 18 watts to produce 1575 gallons per hour. More importantly, all of the heat put out from the motor is outside of your aquarium, meaning it will not add additional heat to the water helping your chiller to run less.
