Hey guys,

I have a red sea reefer (60" x 20" x 20") that is running two MP 40's and I've been struggling to find flow patterns that my tank prefers. I just bought a reef octo pulse 2 to supplement and I was blown away at how small and powerful this pump is. It feels just as strong as my mp40s but with a slightly smaller width of flow. As a bonus, I'm running the hydros wave engine so I just hooked up the pulse 2 to a drive port. Has anyone else made the switch to reef octo pumps and had a good experience? Especially when running the wave engine?
