    I just pulled the trigger on a WP40. I found a seller on ebay who is shipping from florida with free priority overnight I believe. I will report back when I get it. Can't wait to get all of these koralias out of my tank. I just changed the title of the thread. If anyone has videos or info about these pumps, please post here.

    Yeah I saw him on "that other forum" and wondered what the heck he was doing with them all. I then ran across them on ebay. I'm hoping the wp40 is enough to run solo on my 120

    Deff curious how well these work. Do they make them in esw? maybe they could link with the mp's? Highly doubting it but would entice me to buy one to link into my mp10esw.

    No. Es is vortech specific and wireless... I assume vortechs go encrypted.

    People have modded these to work with Apex and ReefAngel. There is a program for the reefangel that will run this pump almost identically to a vortech in reefcrest mode.

    This pump looks like a Tunze stream with a controller built in that mimics vortech feature a bit. It pushed more water than a vortech but has a more narrow flow pattern.

    Maybe if those get popular enough vortech will lower their pricing. Doubt it but its worth hoping for

    Agreed I made a recent change from koralias and I'm glad I did. They often got stuck and simply didnt have the same punch my new aquarium sytems pump have
