Are the MP10's what they're cracked up to be? Is it possible to have a lagoon like environment without a standing wave?

I am actually amazed at what one little fan can do. The front shroud is brilliantly engineered to soften the flow that comes off it and yes, you can program in a standing wave, but it's random patterns are really good. I wish I could afford them on my big reef, but my korallia Magnums have worked fine using a Reefkeeper. The programming is very flexable and a lagoon shouldn't be a problem.

Ok thanks. I've posted probably 4 or 5 difference threads asking about the MP10 and am finally getting some feedback. Is noise an issue? My tank is in my living room and I expect SOME noise, but too much is no bueno for the wifey lol. I'm already dealing with a decent hum due to the reef Octo hob and aqua clear hob...

I sit a few feet away from mine and I can detect a small hum, especially if it's in a varied program cycle, it kind of makes it easier to detect. But it is a very small hum.

Cool thanks. There's really nothing holding me back from the MP10. Too many good things about them it seems. $235 is a pretty good price too for a new one eh? I just don't want to be let down lol... Especially with that price tag.

Before my son bought this one, I thought they were a waste of money. They are four times the cost of a hydor fan. But they are very cool.

Hopefully I can offset cost. I have 2 Koralia 1400's, 1 1050, 1 550, and 2 850's plus a wave maker. I either sit on them til I move into a house and do my 180 gallon in wall reef or sell them and deal with it lol... Life goes on either way so I won't lose sleep over it.

Well, there you go. You'll find a use for them.
