    Marine Depot is taking pre-orders for the VorTech water-mover thingey..

    http://www.marinedepot.com/aquarium_mar ... omsource=4

    It can be yours for only $345.

    And I thought it'd be "affordable." Guess that's what I get for thinking.

    This pretty much guarantees that I'll be one of Taam's guina pigs when I purcahse one of those seio controllers when they come out... :confused:

    from what ive heard its supposed to be up to 3000 gph. Sounds comparable to a tunze 6100 without the ability to point the flow at an angle but at the same tunze price. The initial feedback should be interesting

    And, the controller for the pump isn't even out yet...you can manually set the flow, but, no nice controller like the Tunze, yet.

    Just lets you manually set the flow...no pulsing, alternating, etc. like the Tunze Single or Multicontroller...

    the only thing it has over the tunze is you can control up to 22 powerheads. but thats just what I have heard, so if im wrong dont blame me :lol:
