    New Icecap Vortech pumps comming out in Feb 2006

    this is a very interesting concept that might be of interest...first of all its like a powerhead without the motor being in the tank, so that means less heat :) ...rumor has it that it will be of fair price and a controller is in the making for them which can control up to 10 devices and a can be set up to use a battery backup incase of powerfailure of up to 24/36 hours. :^:

    heres a vid for your viewing pleasure: Icecap

    So 1 side is inside the glass and the other is directly outside? At least thats what thoe picturees lead me on to think. Sounds like a good idea tho as long as you can turn them down lol.
