I had never really understood exactly what oceansmotions did untill that link.
All I can say is it looks like a whole heck of a lot of work. It doesnt seem much different than some of the MBV setups that I myself have, and several other people on this board are using thanks to Mike.
The one advantage I do see is having pluming in the front to get aimed back at the rockwork.
If you do decide to do it, please post your progression, id like to see how it turns out.

I will post some pictures of my 8-way in the near future. I have drilled all of the outputs, plumbed the intake to a ampmaster 4700, and mounted the 8-way.

On my set-up I actually split most of the 1" outputs into two 3/4". I will have four 3/4"revolutions over the tank, eight 3/4" locline outputs and two 1" feeding a spraybar.

The 8-way was about 100 bucks cheaper than a MBV
