    I do antisync, but not at 100% and it works great. Starting at 5pm the antisync pulse gets a nice standing wave going.

    Here's mine:

    Hope the other guys answered your questions.

    I keep mine very simple. Lagoon all night starting at 11:59pm (40%>ramps down to >20% by 2am) so my fish can sleep in peace.

    All day Reefcrest 70% & Pulse .04/Sec.

    I would not run my pumps at 100% but that's just me.

    Hey RR-Man - I see from your screen shot that you have both your vortech running what looks like the same programming across both pumps. i.e You programmed one that you liked and copied the programming to the second. I did the same, but I understand some people have the 2nd under anti-sync mode with the first which some people say is preferred to give it full random flow with the wave collisions.

    I can't figure this part out. I've seen one person set the 2nd as only 'antisync at 100%', but it doesn' seem correct. Looks funny because when my left is running very slow the right is still going full speed thus doesn't match speed with the left.

    Has anyone seen this?

    Looking at the pictures. Looks like you guys mirrored the MPs and on the specific wave time at a time, you selected Anti with the % to match the corresponding MP. That sounds simple enough. I'll give that a shot. =) Thanks!

    APEX Experts - Pairing Ecotech MP pumps to APEX

    More apex toys-getting greedy 🤣🤣🤣 I need one more eb8

    Guys,
    If you don't have an apex get one regardless of the cost-this is coming from someone who's not big on controllers. It will save you so much time and heartache.
