Next Generation of Water Moving Technology The Maxspect Gyre is the world's first "gyre"- generating water moving device for aquariums. Compared to traditional powerheads and wave makers that are based on propeller nozzle flow technology, the Maxspect Gyre is based on advanced crossflow technology which produces massive horizontal water movement leaving little to no dead-spots in its wake.

Gyre Generation

New -Crossflow Technology

A) Virtually no dead spots

B) Evenly distributed flow rate throughout the entire aquarium

C) Water bounces back from the other side to create a full circulation, ie. generating "gyre flows"

Other Pumps

Standard Propeller Nozzle Technology

A) Dead spots with relatively poor water movement

B) Very strong flow in the centre, making coral placement very difficult

C) Very weak flow near the other end of the aquarium

Why gyre generator and not a wave-maker? Wave-makers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are in fact moving the majority of the water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium. On the other hand, gyre generators excel in moving sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The sheer flow of water is so strong that i would bounce back from the opposite site to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, ie. generating "gyre flows".

Max Flow Rate - 22,500 L/H

Single Pump Dimensions (LxWxH): 14.8" x 3.8" x 2"

Power Consumption: 8w-60w

Ideal for Aquariums: 750 to 3800L
