Marine Aquarium Expo—Orange County, CA— EcoTech Marine, the company that revolutionized reef aquarium propeller pumps, today previewed its latest offering - the ultra small VorTech MP10. The MP10 leverages the award-winning technology of the highly-acclaimed VorTech MP40w and delivers a pump ideally suited for aquariums in the 2.5 to 50 gallon range that will fit in the palm of even the smallest hands.
“Minimal visual intrusion in the aquarium is essential to the nano reef enthusiast experience,” says Tim Marks, President of EcoTech Marine. “The MP10, without question, offers the smallest in-tank foot print of any commercially-available pump capable of pushing 1575 gallons per hour, once again proving that size does matter.”
The patented VorTech technology produces unmatched broad yet gentle flow while placing the motor outside the tank—preserving the beauty of the aquarium and enhancing the health of the tank’s ecosystem. With all the electrical components outside the aquarium and a variety of easy-to-program modes, the VorTech is the safest, most versatile pump on the market.
“Nano has moved well beyond trend and is here to stay,” said Marks. “The marketplace demanded this product so we’ve applied our expertise in developing low-profile pumps to this burgeoning segment and the early indications are people are blown away by its sleek looks, versatility and broad flow.”
Pricing and Availability
The MP10 debuted at Marine Aquarium Expo (MAX) show in Orange County on April 3, 2009 and will be available for general distribution in late spring 2009 with a MAP of $195.
