VorTech MP60
Pet Product News Editors' Choice Winner Inventory Essentials
Manufacturer: EcoTech Marine

Product Description: EcoTech Marine's VorTech MP60 with EcoSmart Driver Technology is on the cutting edge of reef aquarium water movement, in terms of form factor, aesthetics and footprint. Using only 60 watts of electricity, the pump is designed to deliver up to 7,500 gallons-per-hour of water movement, and is intended for use in aquaria from 120 to 1,000 gallons. It features the standard VorTech setup, with the propeller situated inside the aquarium, and the motor and other potentially heat-transferring parts kept outside. A magnetic drive moves the propeller, and our reviewer found the unit to run smoothly and quietly, with minimal vibration even when the unit was turned to its maximum setting. The control system is simple but full featured, and the pump delivers in terms of flow, as the test tank's water was well circulated and distributed at a good rate, without too much fast flow in any one area. Waves and specific currents were easy to generate with some changes to positioning, and the pump was easy to maneuver, fitting in small spaces and taking up little room while appearing innocuous to viewers
