My tank is 54" long, 33" wide, and 24" high. I'm looking to have some LPS and SPS in this tank.

How many Vortech and which models do you guys recommend?

Appreciate any help you guys give me. :)

My tank height is 24", is it kind of short for an MP60?

I never had an MP60 but I heard that thing is a beast.

i think you will be okay. min 3500gph, max 7500gph.

mp40 max is 3500gph. with the mp60 you will get a lot more extra controllable 3500-7500gph.

check this thread out with the mp40 and mp60 with video in action.

Thank you. I did watch the video. That's a ton of flow. I think I will go with two mp40s and I already have an mp10 that I can buy on the back wall since the tank is 33" deep.

2 x MP40s will be more appropriate for your tank size. MP60 is a bit strong and I don't really recommend using it on anything < 30" depth, otherwise expect lots of sandstorm. MP60's undertow is extremely strong and I have to keep mine < 50% in my 72" x 24" x 30" 225g to prevent sandstorm.

Unless you have plans to get a larger tank in the future, I would stick with the MP40's.
