JBJ Lighting

JBJ launches the new OCEANSTREAM™ circulation pumps equipped with magnetic holders and articulating pivot ball. These innovative pumps utilize a unique PaddleDisc™ impeller that diverts water to the perimeter of the housing unlike traditonal propeller based pumps. This ensures maximum "random flow" in wide circular currents that provide gentle water movement without harming corals placed directly within its path.

VERSATILITY
You can choose from our NANO OCEANSTREAM (500 GPH)) for smaller aquariums or our original OCEANSTREAM (1600 GPH) for aquariums up to 100 gallons. Pumps are ideal for fresh or saltwater aquariums.

WAVEMAKER COMPATIBLE
OCEANSTREAM circulation pumps are definitely compatible with our OceanPulse Wavemakers that allow you to configure alternating cycles from 10 seconds to 6 minutes.

Works as expected

This power head works as any other I have used, the real test will be how long they last for. I do like the paddle disc design compared to the propeller designs I have used in the past and lost a fish to.

Runs a little warm

Quality seems good and it's performance so far is great, the only bad thing about this pump is that it generates more heat into the tank than i thought it would. Just keep an eye on your temp and adjust your heater as necessary.

JBJ Oceanstream Circulation Pu

These are great power heads for the money being quiet and powerful. they are easily and securely placed. They are prone to current leakage so be sure you are using a grounding wire.

Better stay with the magnet

I love JBJ products. I have 2 of these 1600s in my 120 mixed reef and a 500 in my frag tank. They give a wide but powerful flow. Bullet proof and affordable for their ratings. I recently purchased another 1600 for my 110 gallon fish tank in my aquaponic system. Their picture shows a pump with a suction cup holder instead of the magnet. I almost didn't purchase it because of this. It arrived with the magnet mount, but I'm afraid they're going to cheap out on us like they did their Tru Temp heaters(they now ship with suction cups instead of magnets). Better stay with the magnets!

JBL OCEANSTREAM

It is totally inadequate for my 290 gallon reef. Nylon connector to it's pedastal broke with the very first adjustment.I should have learned from others mistake as this appears to be a common problem with the product.

Nice but

I like these powerheads and the flow is great. The screw that attaches the head to the base is cheap and fragile. I can see it breaking very easily and then you are out of luck. It is a design flaw for sure.

efficient quality

I have searched many places for this kind of quality and found no products capable of the job without triple the price tag or a great deal of noise. I have read many product reviews and spoken to a number of aquarius about other products. All of them fail in one of 2 catagories: price (over charging because of a name printed on the side does not make a product better), and quality (the vast majority of powerheads in this same catagory have all been said to either be too noisy or break the shaft within just a couple weeks). Quite, durable, cost effective. I found a product worthy of recommendation.
