November 26, 2012, Bethlehem, Pa. – EcoTech Marine is pleased to announce that it received two of MarineDepot.com’s Best of 2012 Awards in the Best Aquarium Light and Best Powerhead categories. EcoTech Marine was one of only two companies to receive more than one award this year from a pool of more than 180 global brands considered.
The awards, which recognize aquarium supply manufacturers and products that have demonstrated outstanding performance throughout a one-year period, called out EcoTech’s Radion XR30w LED Light Fixture and EcoTech’s MP40 VorTech Propeller Pump.
“We’re honored to receive an award by MarineDepot.com – let alone receiving two,” EcoTech Marine Co-Founder Patrick Clasen said. “Our goal is to develop quality products for customers to create the healthiest, safest and smartest aquarium possible. These awards are a great testament to the vision, drive and talent of my fellow founders and our team. We look forward to many more years as a leading producer of accessories and equipment for reef aquarium enthusiasts.”
EcoTech’s Radion XR30w LED Light Fixture, the standard in LED lighting, won Best Aquarium Light. Outfitted with 34 energy-efficient LEDs in five controllable colors, the XR30w communicates wirelessly with other Radion lights and VorTech pumps through EcoSMART Live, a cloud-based web app that’s accessible on any device with an internet connection.
EcoTech’s MP40 VorTech Propeller Pump won Best Powerhead. It minimizes the intrusion of equipment in your tank by using a bracket-less design, allowing the motor to be placed on the outside of the aquarium. It is fully equipped with the EcoTech RF wireless module pre-installed, which allows for advanced modes and features in which synchronized flow or coordinated flow and lighting conditions can be created to simulate a natural underwater environment.
