    So how many vortechs and which ones do I need for my 210 gallon?

    Dims are 72"x 24" x 30"

    What do you run and what size tank?

    I think two mp40wes are good for that size gives you plenty of flow.

    Agree I run two on my 180 and they work great; the 210 is only 6in taller.

    I think it's 395?

    Adam I'd also look into the maxpect gyre. 1 on my 175 and that's it!

    If going the gyre vs cp-45 route defenetly go with the gyre its only a bit more price wise and comes with a warinty.
