Mp10 really worth it?

Are the Vortechs Mp10's really worth it on a 55 gallon. I'm not worried about sound cause I see they are close to silent. Just wanted to see if they were really worth the high price.

I had one on a 58 bowfront. Great powerhead! I now have mp40s on my big tank. I feel like they are worth the extra money if you have it my corals responded very well to them

Based on the reviews and results from many reefers, yes. I don't personally have one, but I wish I did. It's the ideal pump for SPS dominant tanks (well, other corals too) b/c of the random flow/power.

Honestly I say no. They are not worth it. I have 1 MP10 and 1 WP25 on my 55gal SPS tank and the WP25 was by far the better deal... its only 70 bucks and it pushes 3 times the water that the MP10 does. I love that with vortech you are getting reliable products with great customer service. But now that I have tried the WP25 ill stick with those from now on.

I run an mp10 on my 60g cube and koralias everywhere else pretty much. I like the mp10, but is it worth price tag to me? No. It's a great powerhead but for that much money it performs only slightly better than my koralias, at least in my experience.

I dont think a single mp10 is good enough for a 55g either, I have a 24 inch wide tank and its perfect but to add another two feet to that in tank length and you are probably looking at either 2 of them or an mp40.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Wow didn't think they would be that bad. The price is pretty outrageous though. I wonder if the same opinion goes for the mp40s.

I have an MP10 on my 40B and I love it. So many different flow patterns and it's not overly loud. I personally like not having to clean salt creep off of the power cord like I had to with my Koralias. The price tag is a zinger though, you'll defintely feel it in the wallet.

Checkout the jeabo 25-40, heard good reviews on them and a lot less.
