Vortechs aren't for everyone. For one, they are super expensive. Two, some people dont need that much power/ variability. If your running a tank with mostly Lps and softies, you're not going to need something that can make literal waves in the tank. Koralias are nice because you don't have as much power with a single ph, they are relatively cheap, and you get more control with more ph's. You could make the argument that you can have more than one mp10 running low and get the same control, but the price scares most people away.

Vortechs are great, but the price doesn't justify them for most people and with koralias, I sure dont see the need for them in a tank like dary's.

I don't think they make mp20s anymore and that's a shame because the jump in power between models is sometimes to great

Id love to have a set of 'em just to eliminate the clutter of having four large koralias in the tank ( 3-1400's and 1- 1050).. But as stated before ., they are just so pricey otherwise im sure id already have'em.. Maybe someday.. Maybe ..?

They are pricey but u will.never have a better one. If I want someting that expensive I set aside money every check till I got about half then go get. U don't need the wireless but if u have lights made buy ecotech u can sync them together. I don't care about spending a lot of money on stuff that's why I work u know

I'll probably end up with some sooner or later.... Almost all of my " xtra " money is usually put away into my yearly Hawaiian fund,.... I just love to go snorkeling over there to check up on my aquarium buddies,....but,..once I get something I want in my head it's going to happen,..it's just trying to justify it., that takes up brain space ,..temporarily .
