They used to make an MP20 I believe - might try to locate one or two of those. Just remember, (1) mp10 = (2) 750 koralias at full throttle, BUT you don't get the random flow crashes with only one.

I think i have decided to get one. I have read some articles saying that the mp10 works great in the back wall of larger tanks to sync up with the mp40 or mp60. I couldn't find an mp20 but what I did find suggested that the mp20 doesn't have all the different wave modes that the new mp10 has.

I'm thinking of getting in from petco to test to see how it works in my tank then return it if I don't like It. How long does the powerhead take to set up?

It took me about three minutes to get it in the tank and working. When I added the 2nd one the next day it took me 5 because I had to set up the Master / slave relationship between the two.

Well I found one from a guy on creigs list but I don't know what I'll be able to buy it from him but he wants 150$ for it. He said it was used for 2 months

If your plan is to upgrade later and use it will other MP's, you will want to make sure it is a "w" wireless model. Otherwise, it won't work, in sync, with the other powerheads.

Just to let you know too, the programs / modes that the pumps have are great, BUT the "wave in the tank" mode is really loud. The pump whines up and down once every couple seconds and it's quite annoying.

Well I don't think I can have a wave in my tank anyways beings there's no overflow so the water level isn't really low. The mp10 I just bought from the guy on Craigslist is a wireless model. So I got a mp10w for 150$ I am happy with that I couldn't see spending 285.

I hope do beings I won't be able to return it but I'll take that chance for half the price.
