The Versa is a specifically designed peristaltic pump from EcoTech Marine. The Versa is extremely precise, robust and versatile.
The Versa is capable of being used as a dosing pump, as an auto top off (ATO) pump and even for automatic water changes.
The Versa utilizes a DC stepper motor with a planetary drive mechanism. Smart control and BLE connectivity means super quick and simple calibration and programming from your phone or tablet. Once calibrated the Versa is amazingly accurate for small volume dosing and extremely quick for large volume dosing.
The pump can dispense a huge volumetric range in discreet increments or continuously. The robust construction and ETM support means this will be the last peristaltic aquarium pump you purchase.
The experienced hobbyist will understand immediately what makes the Versa a clear choice for the accomplished reef keeper. Those new to dosing and water change pumps will get to experience the future of a multi-purpose aquarium pump.
The Versa can be purchased as a single pump or as a 4 pack that includes a detachable consolidated power rail base station. Individual pumps can be added to a base station if purchased separately.

Mobius is EcoTech’s new Equipment control app. Mobius is available for free download from the iOS and Android app store (available at time of Versa public launch). Mobius turns your smartphone or device into the control center for your EcoTech equipment including the Versa.
After installing the Mobius app you will be prompted to create a tank profile – you can then add all available (and compatible) EcoTech equipment and within minutes create a fully customized program schedule.
PLEASE NOTE: Not all Ecotech equipment may be controllable through Mobius at the initial launch. Control to each product line may be sequentially released over the next few months
By using app control as the interface for programming the Versa – the user gets fast and simple touch screen control of the equipment – this greatly simplifies complex programming by utilizing the computing power of the smart device and its intuitive touch screen interface. This removes the need to access a control panel and cycle through options and settings with a cumbersome onboard interface and hard to press buttons.
Other than an iOs or Android smart device no additional controller is required.
The Versa pump is controllable exclusively with Mobius and is not backwards compatible with EcoSmart Live or the ReefLink.
The base station includes a tactile button for each pump to manually dose or prime a pump (both functions are also available through the Mobius app).
The Mobius app is required to create a 24 hour dosing schedule for the Vectra.
The Versa has an impressive list of features that are likely to expand as Mobius develops and with the addition of future equipment currently in development by EcoTech Marine.
- Large range dosing capability (.5ul-300ml/minute)
- Heavy Duty Construction
- Consistent and Reliable Stepper Motor with Planetary Gear Drive
- Safeguards against over-dosing and user error
- BT onboard
- Mobius Programming Allows For:
- Continuous dosing over time
- Up to 30 discreet dosing points
- 3 Dosing Modes; Automated, Calculated or Manual
- Dosing as part of scenes and routines
- Integration with other EcoTech/Mobius equipment (eg. Feed mode)
- Capacity of over 200 Versa pumps per system
- 1 Year Parts and Labor EcoTech Warranty
- Quiet Operation
- Modular Design
- Easy to maintain
- Included Barbed Connector – Two Optional Interchangeable connectors also available. (Push to connect stem, Push to connect female).
Optional Male Push to connect tube assembly with elbow push to connector. Tube assemblies are easy to remove and change as they wear or to replace if a different configuration is desired.
Key Features Explained
Flow Range: The Versa can be used for a wide range of aquarium applications. Fine control of very small dosing quantities allows the Versa to be used as a dosing pump.
Heavy Duty: The high capacity and commercial grade construction mean it can be employed for auto-top off, water changes and feeding* in addition to dosing. * Feeding dependent on liquid viscosity etc.
Stepper Motor and Planetary Gear drive: This drive configuration is optimized for precision and longevity. Two important characteristics for a market leading Peristaltic Pump.
Mobius programming- including safeguards, catch-up and a myriad of other features: A defining characteristic of EcoTech equipment is the versatility and power of control offered to the aquarium hobbyist. A defining characteristic of Mobius is packaging all this capability in a way that makes programming and control intuitive, quick and super easy.
Singles and 4-Packs
The following SKUs are available for the Versa.
VX-1 – An individual pump with a universal 24v power supply. This also includes a mounting triangle to mount the pump to a cabinet etc.
