I have 4 mp40s on the rear wall of a 320g stick dominate tank. 68x36x30 inches
2 of these pumps have been with me for 10 years and still going strong.

Nothing over the top is important to me. I don't even like viewing obstructions on the side panels.

I designed and 3d printed new covers with a redirector recently so sand blowing is not an issue. Also I have a larger grain sans then many. Think tropic Eden meso flake.

I had a few issues years ago with the wet side assembly and they immediately replaced them no questions, other than serial number, asked!

For many years I always used cheapo powerheads , I am absolutely glad I switched and will probably not use another product.

Purple rock rocks! Do you have coralline algae in your tank right now?
