I'm thinking if getting an MP10 for my 125 to complement two evo 850's and a MJ 1200 I want to replace as well

A 125 would need a much larger mp40. A mp10 would work well in a 40.

Try looking at the jeabo wp40s for your 125 I have a pair of wp40s on my 210 with a pair of koralia 1500s. You can make almost the same settings as a vortech at 1/4 of the cost. Mine have been running for almost a year now. With the updated controller for them you can tone everything down in all of the settings. The two have on full power stream mode will blow every bit of detritus and junk out of my rocks without blasting it with a separate pump. Plus the wave I can make will get large enough to go over the edges of my tank. I'll try to post a video with one running to show the power if them and its half the noise of my vortech pumps I had.

Thanks for checking in Hank... It's going well since I set up the 2 850's alternating every hour. My hammer coral looks great again, and things seem happy. I'm going to check out the MP10 tomorrow, once it's in my hands I'll follow my gut whether to buy it or not...

Sounds solid. I'd love to have some in my tank. Whole system run by ecotech products? Thank you! Then add the wireless router once it is released...solid.

Yup seems legit for sure... Boku $$ though I would imagine, even though you are already 33% there with the Radions right? Now just a cool thousand dollars for a pair of MP40's, and whatever the router is, you will be talk of the town lol... I'm ok with my TaoTronic LED for this tank, I'll go big when the wife and I get out of this condo and into a house.

Ya, I'll do it all when I buy a house. Making sure I have extra to upgrade the tank size as well as vortechs.

Thanks. I ordered a pair on Saturday morning. Now, I plan to place them on opposite ends and use the W1 function. Any tips on how to synch without a controller (like Apex)
