"I wouldn't buy anything that won't be applicable to your next tank." - this is what I'm thinking too ... thank you.
No I'm thinking to upgrade in 8 months or so ... we can say in a year.

If you wanted more flow in the meantime, you can always get an MP40wqd, and just run it at low value. I'm trying out a new program right now, but I have been running my MP10s at ~75-85% since I got it with only positive things to say about it, so I imagine if you have the space in the tank, running an MP40 at 30% should be similar enough, and can be dialed even lower if it's too much flow. That was my logic.

Don't you like the Maxspect Gyre XF130 Generator Flow Pump ?

Ehhh I go back and forth. I really like it in principle. My hesitation is that nobody has ever used just that pump. They're always adding additional pumps. So why not just get an MP10/MP40 and be done with it. I've been 100% fine with my current pump. The only reason I'm considering adding a second is that my corals are growing in thick enough that it's impeding the flow from only one MP10 with one direction.

I would probably have the same problem with the Gyre too.
