I know couldn't be happier with that! I placed another order with BRS and it will be here on Monday. Both were ground shipping.

Getting ready to install the mp10 on my 55 gallon and just wondering if you think the spacer is needed. I don't know what the diameter is so if anyone could help I'd appreciate it! Even if it's not needed do you think it should be used to cut down on noise?

I have a 55g with the Hydor Wavemaker Controler 2 and I just upgraded to 2 Hydor 4's and I love the flow for my SPS. The best powerheads are probably 2 MP10's

No the spacer is not needed on a 55g. Your glass should be 1/4". Follow the attachment intructions. No closer than 4" from surface to prevent vortex and the pump sucking on air. Also once attached go into Constant Mode (Green) and crank it to 100%. While running align the wet and dry side perfectly until as much noise and vibration is removed as possible. If not aligned properly they will vibrate and shorten part life.

For reef you want 30-50 times water volume as far as flow so for a 30g tank youd want 900-1500 gph of flow
