    Not sure, but we have a few sponsors carrying them: Pat from OttawaInverts and I believe Keith from BWI ( if he's still around )

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    I don't personally have it but i have the MP20 and let me tell you unless your tank is really small like 40gal max id go with something bigger, these pumps aren't like the Maxi jet's or other pumps, their water movement is very large yet not won't blow your coral's off it's skeletons. I probably would have gone with the mp40 and might even do so in the future and I'm only 75 gallons.

    yup. the mp40's can be throttled down too.. so always great to have some extra power on tap if necessary.

    i've got MP20 in my 40 gal cube right now darn so good , i just used this as only a powerhead in my tank nothing else except my skimmer and over flow filter. you should see the pulse mode the way that corals move back and fort so cool lol. if you have MP20 in your tank right now and ain't enough mosbonn, ottawainverts has a upgrade kit i believe around $180 for MP40. i forgot now how do you post your pic here now in AC too long can't remember anymore, could somebody tell me how to do it thanks.:b11:

    my tank only a 29 gal so I think the MP 10 would be enough.
