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, the gyre excels in generating massive movements of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The sheer flow of water is so strong that it 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"

 

OTHER PUMPS

Standard Propeller Nozzle Technology

A) Dead spots with relatively poor water movement

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

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

    • If I run more than 1 of these pumps can the be synced together like the maxspect gyres or not?
    • Hi,

  1. Powerful Review by David
    Product Rating:

    It moves a lot of water in my 58 gallon aquarium. I just installed it so like the other reviewer I'm still figuring out the settings. Easy to install and set up. I'm still learning all the program settings. Great price for what you get. You can get all the water movement you need from one product, no need for multiple powerheads. Everything looks well made. Excellent product. (Posted on 6/8/2018)

  2. SURE MOVES WATER Review by Kimberly
    Product Rating:

    I bought this for my 40G innovative AIO tank.
    All I can say is that it does A LOT but figuring out how to use it is tough. It has a manual function where YOU decide what you want it to do and an auto function as well and I haven't figured out how to program it. LOL

    All in all it does move the water really well in a 40 G "box" shaped tank. It also has a "feeding" program so it will turn off and back on at a certain time of day. That's cool, you don't have to unplug it and them reprogram it.
    The controller lights up and is easy to hang inside your cabinet.

    Sorry couldn't help more but It does what it says it does. It moves water in all sorts of ways Ha! (Posted on 4/3/2018)
