Exactly what I was thinking. Plus I like the look of the water swaying back and forth, especially with torches, nems etc.

Probably 2 MP40s. Based on my experience, the 2 mp10s in a 57 are more than enough flow (I run them at around 70% of full power), but in a 110, I think they would be underpowered, assuming you are looking to keep SPS.

There isn't an mp20. The next size from an MP10 is an mp40.

Ah that's right forgot about gen 1. Perhaps you could find some used ones though at this point they are going to have had several years of use which wouldn't be ideal. While I can attest to the quality of construction, they do run pretty much constantly and I am sure they eventually wear out.

Sure but 1 won't be enough flow for sps except right near the powerhead.
