CROSSFLOW WATER MOVEMENT

Similar to the Maxspect Gyre flow pump, the IceCap K3 is capable of generating the iconic GYRE water movement within aquariums without breaking the bank. Single magnetic mount makes the pump simple to install. 5 Controllable flow modes and programable 24hr flow period. 

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".

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"

Questions on IceCap 3K Gyre Generation Flow Pump

  • From Phil at 1/23/2017 2:45 PM
    • Would this be too much flow for a 30g innovate marine tank ?
    • Phil,
      Yes, it will be fine in 30 gal tank. You will have to turn it down a bit to get the right amount of flow for your size tank.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

    • Does this have the rubberized vibration dampening mount or all plastic?
    • Scott,
      IceCap 3K has a rubber dampening mount, kind of works the same way as the Maxspect Gyre.

  1. Awesome Pump Review by AJHenning
    Product Rating:

    So Good. Almost too good.
    I have no idea why people are complaining about the noise of this pump. It's silent on my 120 reef. The overflow is the only thing I hear on my tank. I did move it around while it was running, and some air was sucked in, and it was a little noisy. But I put it under water and shook the air out of it, and silence.
    I have it set at 40% with the ramp up pulse, and it's pissing off my LPS, so I had to move them around, but the SPS and the Zoas are soo happy. One complaint, the cords are too short for my set up, and you can't buy extensions, yet.

    I recommend it; to friends & family!!

  2. Excellent!!! Review by Jayson
    Product Rating:

    I was worried this may cause a sandstorm in my tank, or be too loud as some have said, but no problem at all!

    I have this one one side of my 210g and 1 RW-8 on the other side. I run it in auto mode and don't have any issues with sand blowing up or noise. (Posted on 7/19/2017)

  3. great pump for the money Review by Jeffrey
    Product Rating:

    Works great! Made a little noise for about 10 minutes, and very quiet since then. I am running this about 70% in an 85 gallon Rimless tank and it rocks!!!. Would definitely recommend this.ENTRY (Posted on 6/26/2017)

  4. An amazing pump! Review by Illinois Reefer
    Product Rating:

    This pump lives up to what it is designed for. I have never had the kind of water flow in my tank before. I have a 150 gallon mixed reef. And there is no way I can run this thing at 100%. The max I have it programed for is 60% pulse during the day. And the flow is amazing. Debris stays in the water column and doesn't settle on the reef or sand bed. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that the motor has a humming sound that is easily heard. I don't know it there is a way to stop this or not. I am going to reach out to CoralVue and see what their recommendaction is. I will give a follow up review if this issue is solved. (Posted on 3/24/2017)
