A description of the modes can be found here:

EcoSmart Tidal Swell Mode


In this EcoSMART mode water is circulated to create a harmonic balance in your aquarium reminiscent of the changing flow conditions that would be found in nature. Over the course of several hours, the flow pattern will go from very chaotic with an emphasis on left to right flow direction to an emphasis on right to left flow direction, all the while experiencing calm period in between and followed by a great surge of flow at the very end of the cycle. Adjusting the dial changes the maximum speed achieved at any time during this mode. Slave pumps should be positioned opposite the master and on the back of the tank to take full advantage of the EcoSMART modes.

EcoSmart Nutrient Transport Mode



In this EcoSMART mode, water is circulated in a two phase program consisting of wave motion to stir up detritus and surging motion to move the detritus into your overflow where it can be skimmed out. This effect promotes maximum health and nutrient export, as well as increased growth for sensitive corals such as SPS. Adjusting the dial changes the maximum speed achieved at any time during this mode. Slave pumps should be positioned opposite the master and on the back of the tank to take full advantage of the EcoSMART modes.

Classic Reef-Crest and Lagoonal Random Modes



In random mode you can toggle between two different modes, Reef-Crest and Lagoonal. When a pump is in Lagoonal Random Mode, the dial is used to set the maximum operational speed, and the driver will automatically randomize the pumps output to simulate either a high (Reef-Crest) or low (Lagoonal) energy reef environment. If this pump is a master, the associated slave pumps will replicate the master in sync or anti-sync modes.

Simply The Best! Product Review by RAINIER CASTILLO (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: First of, thanks for the fast delivery. I was going to buy this for myself, but my wife got it for me for Xmas. Currently, I have the Hydor Koralia in my 34g tank and it seems like its not really doing want I want it to do on my reef tank. I replaced my Koralia with the Vortech MP10 and this pump made waves in my tank in no time. It's a little pricey but it's worth every penny spent on this thing. If I get another tank, I would definitely buy this pump again!

Comments: Have purchased 2 of these and the best purchase I have ever made for my tanks besides good lights. Make sure to buy the battery backup in case of power outage!

You cant go wrong with this Product Review by CURTIS PADGETT (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I bought this for a 40 gallon bare bottom mixed reef tank.I already have 400 gallons per hour going through my tank from my return pump.I wanted a higher turn over rate because of the sps corals I have.One of these power heads was more than enough.I run mine on reef crest at about 60%.Full power is to much I use that when I want to export nutrients befor I change my filter sock.I like the fact that you change the amount of flow you desire to meet your needs.It is well built and of the highest quality.Dont be alarmed if they are a little noisy at first.After a few days they break in and you cant hear
it running.There is no need for any other power heads because this moves all the water you would need for a 40 gallon with a good return pump and sump system.The only problem I had was with the operating instructions.I downloaded the full manual from their web page and watched videos on you tube.I plan at a later date setting up a 200 gallon reef tank and at that time will incorperate these into my next build.

Comments: I saw this powerhead on Youtube, in stores, etc, but nothing like having it in my tank and see what it can do...

This powerhead will create a Sunami in your tank if you are not careful.

I also like the different and very nice programs that are very easy to select and run.
