This is when I was setting up you can see how I ran them.
1. My clown trigger knocked mine down several times that i witnessed (maybe he didnt like the noise or maybe it was accidental but it happend at least 6 times in the few months i had them)
2. My MP40s mysteriously ended up separated when I got home on more than a handful of occasions.
3. They are still not that sleek looking in my opinion no matter how the wires are ran.
4. I find it hard to trust a magnet holding up $1600 worth of pumps that could hit my hardwood floor and damage the pumps or floor so the safety chain setup was my only option.
5. I ran two towards the top of the water and two towards the middle of the tank so the deeper you put the pump the more wire to "hide" Which is impossible on a 210 the center pumps were a foot in either direction across glass that you could not hide wires on they were just there.
6. The pumps hanging off outside of the glass were cool but people grab them wondering what they are and there goes the wet side down into the sand again. And they get to be just as much of an eye sore to me as the internal PHs so i figured id use cheaper eye sores lol.
7. The dry side is pretty loud when you have spent so much time tuning your tank for silence and then you hear a constant wirrrrrrrrrrrrr wirrrrrrrrrr wirr wirrr wirrrrrrrrrrr sound coming from a $400 power head
8. The noise was still noticable at only 50-60% power. EcoTech did send me several replacements but they were never any quieter than the previous ones.
As you can see they did not fit my needs in the least bit. Not saying they aren't for somebody but they weren't for me and my tank. At $400 a piece they should have been absolutely silent and thats my biggest complaint.
