    Default MP40's or Tunze wavebox?

    I'm looking to upgrade the powerheads in my 120 breeder, and am looking your opinions on what will be my best bet. I'm looking at either doing a couple MP40's or a Tunze 6215, I've seen both in action, and think they will both serve my tank size well. I do plan to upgrade to at least a 180 in the next few years and would like to buy something that will work good in that too. Let me know what you think.

    I love my mp40's. I had two of them om my 120. They are serving well now in my 165. I love the feed mode and wireless capability.

    They came yesterday, and I was up late getting the installed and playing with them. These things are incredible, the really can move some water.

    Yeah, I love mine. Did you try the feedmode? I run mine on reef crest, and the flow rocks. I'm also pushing 1300gph through my overflow for flow.

    Yea the feed mode is sweet. I've been goofing with the short pulse and tidal swell so far. I actually had to turn my mag 18 down. Lol

    I'm not set on anything yet, but I do like the Tidal Swell.
