Wow .. Nice deal .., he wasn't looking over his shoulder when he gave you the boxes was he ??? As long as you have the white " driver" box with all the knobs than you should be able to program whatever mode you want.
Check out their web site .. They have some videos etc that 'll help you alot.
Im just learning right along with you on these critters... My new replacement mp40 has been buzzing along just fine so far.
Im sure the 10'a will be cool on a small little setup. Good luck ryan

Ok it's time to buy myself a really nice magnetic algae cleaner , I'm tired of trying to reach inside and around corals etc with the ones on a handle,.... For my tank I've narrowed it down to two selections,..the " magnavore ". Cleaner or the algae free hammerhead cleaner,.... I've read a ton of reviews on each and they both seem like they'll be up for the task on hand,.....however, I was wondering if anyone actually here have used any of these and what's their opinions on them.., cost wise they're both iwithin a couple of bucks of each other so that's not really that much of a factor,.....I'm more concerned with actually day to day use and replacement pads and how available they are etc.
I do not want,nor am I going to buy a cheap one which thru former uses proved a waste of time and money.
Other than that,..Yellowtail .fishing yesterday was again a blast with a couple of more quality fish being taken by this kid,...both fish in the mid twenties weight wise,.... Also the new replacement ecotech pump is still just humming along ,..yea !!!

Woah.. People still use the ones on a stick? Lol, just go with a mag float, you'll love it. If you do want a more fancy one, try to get one with a scraper they are helpful. Im not familiar with the two you mentioned though.

Supposedly,... They have a super strong earth magnet built in ,..which in turn makes for a really tight squeezing between the two magnets ,..and they reportedly able to clean in one pass extremely well,...very pricey but just don't wanna get another piece of junk ( that's my mild rendition ) ....I liike the replaceable pads too..... And Forget about knocking on wood,...I think in your case you should be burying a newt eye by an old oak tree at midnight..

But you shouldn't be using magnets that are very powerful because of the risk of your tank cracking.

There's a million reviews out there about these ,...all good,...they're not so strong that you gotta worry about cracking your tank,...just much better magnets than mag floats etc ,.. I'm leaning towards the hammerhead just because if the magnets do become dislodged,..the inside magnet will float to the top so you don't have to hunt it down behind a clump of rocks or coral,..I'm sure that they're a bunch of AA forum members that use them already,.... Just wanna do a nice upgrade for myself,.. thanks,!

Well if the other cleaner doest float to the top, get the hammer one. It's a very nice thing to have.
