I have two of them on my 77 gal and run them as master/slave (anti synch) in long pulse mode with about a 10 second pulse up to approx 85% power. I don't have any SPS, just soft and several LPS, but the flow is still beneficial in keeping detritus out of all the nooks & crannies, as well as off the sandbed. Great undertow.

If you're running with a single MP40W on your 220, I think you'll find a second one will soon be on your wish list.
