EcoTech Marine Battery Backup
My old one kept falling off, so I ordered a replacent unit. When it came is simply reached the old one and it worked great. I forgot about how noisy they are the 1st 24-48 hrs. However, that assured me I recieved a new authentic ecotech manufactured part from Drs. Foster and Smith. I never regret purchases from this site.
I just disassembled the old one a soaked it in vinegar, then scrubbed it, then resoak, and finally rescubbed it. Good as new for a back up!

BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD
I have always been obsessed with concealing ANYTHING in my reef tank that wouldn't be visible on a real reef. Originally, I had 4 submersible pumps on either side of the tank to create flow patterns...these HAD to be concealed with flat, vertical rocks.
Then came the EcoTech Vortek , with it's ingenious wet/dry concept, where the motor is on the outside and the blades on the inside. By placing just one small unit on the back of the tank, I have all the flow I need to literally cover an entire 72 gallon bowfront. The programable control unit has a variety of flow patterns and a volume control.
Worth every penny!

Just what I expected.
This is a great replacement for my old MP40 wet side. You can't go wrong with the VorTechs.

Use the filter covers
If you run your vortech's near 100% use the filter covers. I've now lost 3 fish to getting sucked on the filter grate, 2 on MP10's and 1 on an MP40, in the past 2 years, and not a single fish another way. The vortechs are death traps without them.
