Looking to buy a tank/system that uses 10mm glass, Ecotech says the max for an MP10 is 9.5mm. I've found multiple responses in forums from Ecotech staff telling people 10mm glass would be fine, to make sure to use the stick on thing on the tank (to hold the dry side).
Emailed Ecotech myself and received this response:
"In all honesty, it is a toss-up. It is possible that it could work, but more than likely not. Each magnet in our products has variances of magnetic force so we give the rating based off of the maximum thickness that any of our pumps, within that particular model, will be able to couple onto."
He went on to recommend an MP40, even though I'd get better, random, flow from two MP10's (my plan).
So...I would love to know of anyone using MP10's on 10mm glass and if it operates ok!
welp, the cadlights artisan 50g is 10mm glass, and if you look at just about every artisan cube (mine included) we're running mp10's. I have two on mine, both work really well, I never run them higher intensity than 80 (apex wxm controlled) and they are never hot to the touch or feel any different than when on my 6mm tank.
Whats funny, is the spacer they include is just about 5mm thick, and on a 3/16" (4.8mm) where it has to be used, is just about 10mm, and they say on a 4.8mm tank, you have to use the spacer or risk damage, so it sounds like what they consider safest, is closer to 10mm then 5mm. Wow, almost confussed my self, let me restate that,
works fine on my 10mm tank, no issues, no vibration, actually quieter than on my 6mm tank.
