    Does anyone have a poked MP40 dry side laying around? I took my MP40's apart the other night to change the bearings and discovered the source of the noise on one of them ..

    This is the internal magnet that runs inside the core. I've been in touch with Aquarium Depot (via Idol Marine) and they don't keep stock of these parts. Best they can do is a complete new dry side motor at R3k :(

    A good idea except I have 2 MP40's connected up to my Reef Angel running in synchronized nutrient transport mode .. and I like not having any cables in the tank

    I've had this unit running fine for almost a year. Was bought second hand off a fellow reefer. It started to get noisier over the last 5 or 6 weeks so I decided to service both the units I have. I have no idea how it broke like that. I haven't found a single other person that has even heard of them breaking like that.

    I've emailed Ecotech in the US to see if they will let me ship the faulty part back to them. If they say no then I guess I'll be putting the working unit up for sale and changing over to the Jebao WP40 or 2 x wp25 .. which I see can be controlled by the Reef Angel :)
