Features

  • New Standards for Flow The VorTech line features low-profile, broad flow pumps for aquariums ranging from 2.5 gallons to 1,000+ gallons (9.5 to 3,800+ liters) . Every product from EcoTech Marine is backed by our industry-leading customer service.
  • Watch Your Aquarium, Not Your Pump The VorTech is beautiful in its simplicity. The motor is outside of the aquarium, meaning the VorTech may be positioned where it is least visible.
  • Eco-friendly External motor mounting means less heat in the water, reducing the need for cooling, and the advanced brushless motor design reduces electricity consumption.
  • Completely Safe No electrical components ever touch the water.
  • Versatile Flow Rates Adjustable flow rates provide more control for your unique ecosystem.
  • Healthy Undertow A natural undertow is created along the sand bed, leading to a healthier ecosystem.
  • Quick Cleanup Wet-side cleaning is a breeze.
