    Does anyone have experience with a Vortech MP10 on 12mm glass?

    I want two pumps, and the MP40 are to strong for my tank (I will be able to turn it down, but they are also about double the price...).

    My tank dimensions will be 80(l) x 65(w) x 55(h). I'm going rimless open-top, and I'm afraid to use 10mm glass without bracing.

    So 80x65x60 should be fine in 10mm rimless (waterlevel at 55)?! The 3 viewing sides will be in Starfire.

    Didn't you get a bow on the panes?

    Maybe I should start another thread and ask about that size tank in rimless! We need a calculator for rimless tanks!

    How was the two MP10's in that tank? I need enough flow for SPS as well!
