    Default Ecotech mp40w

    So I put my phone underwater and I heard this vibration sound from my mp40. I've aligned everything. My glass is 10mm thick. Do you guys this is over kill for my 42g n would a gyre be better for a mix reef?

    I run 2 mp40 and a gyre 130 in my 110. They both have different wave patterns so it's not really "better" just different

    Ok. Just worried if the vibration bothers the fish as well.

    is it a new MP40 or used? If used, take it apart and see if any of the plastic is worn out.

    The mp40 was new. Im gonna clean the wet side n all pumps n see if it goes away. It's only under water that I hear the songs n worried if it's bad for fish. They say don't tap the glass Cus it hurts the fish 🤣

    They say to not tap the glass cause it startles the fish. I doubt the pump sound would bother them at all

    Yeah I noticed the same thing with mp40qd and gyre 150 after filming in tank with my gopro. Outside the tank there's no sounds, inside was a pretty loud hum. I wouldn't worry about it.
