Maxspect Gyre XF-150 Generator, Wavemaker

Tuesday, November 18, 2014 10:18:55 PM America/Chicago

MAXSPECT GYRE XF-150 GENERATOR, WAVEMAKER

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 wavemakers 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 deadspots in its wake.

Why gyre generator and not wavemaker?

Wavemakers 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".

Dictionary Definition: gyre (jīr) Pronunciation Key 
Gyres are ocean current systems that basically move the water in a circular way. A spiral oceanic surface current driven primarily by the global wind system and constrained by the continents surrounding the three ocean basins (Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian). Each ocean basin has a large gyre in the subtropical region, centered around 30° north and south latitude. Smaller gyres occur at 50° north latitude in the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The direction of a gyre's rotation is determined by the prevailing winds in the region, with the large subtropical gyres rotating clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.

New Tunze DOC 9001 Nano Protein Skimmer

Saturday, July 19, 2014 3:22:27 PM America/Chicago

Presenting the "smallest" TUNZE® Comline® DOC Skimmer, 9001


Simple, quiet and effective - these are the current demands towards aquarium components. Only a goal-oriented design can counteract the required complexity, and that is precisely what distinguishes the new small Comline® DOC Skimmer 9001. A true „plug and play“ skimmer for small seawater aquariums with 20 to 140 liters (5.3 to 37 USgal.). There's no complicated setup or regular adjustment required. Just install it into a corner of the aquarium and let it operate. 
It works according to the TUNZE® Flash Skimming principle, where the pump can be oriented in four different directions, and therefore precisely adapted to the aquarium.

Tunze Turbelle Nanostream 6020 Electronic was designed to be hidden behind rock work and not on display like what happens with most pumps these days.

They point vertically, shooting water directly at the deflector, which pushes the water in a horizontal direction, more or less. This deflector can be rotated to target flow to specific areas, but we’re thinking this setup will result in something along the lines of a gyre type system.

Continuum AquaBlade Scrapers

Monday, January 13, 2014 9:23:00 AM America/Chicago

 

Continuum AquaBlade Scrapers

 Take a good clean view of the new line of scrapers we carry!

By utilizing virgin plastic in the molding process instead of re-grind or recycled plastics, the AquaBlade is much stronger and more agile than other scrapers. The first time you pick up an AquaBlade you’ll notice the difference it makes. It feels strong and durable — perfect for work inside your aquarium. 

White Plastic
Allows you to see the scraper more easily through darker algae. This means you don’t miss any spots the first time around the aquarium.

The AquaBlade cyan blade was created by testing countless different types of plastics and plastic blends. The results are a special self lubricating plastic that is softer than acrylic, so it will not scratch acrylic*. Constructed of 316 stainless steel, the AquaBlade metal blade is both strong and rust resistant so removing that stubborn coralline algae is a breeze.

Compatibility built-in
100% Backwards compatible with previous units. Our scraper fits the old blades, our blades fit the old scraper.
