Tunze Stream 6255 WIDE FLOW is a low voltage DC pump suitable for use with Tunze electronic pump controllers, such as 7092, 7095 and 7096.

Stream 6255 is unique in that incorporates a very large 3" diameter output and produces a very wide flow, it is ideal for tanks wider than 36". It is suitable for aquariums up to 1050 gallons and produces a flow rate of 1300-4800 gph. The cutaway intake area and forward nozzle increase overall flow rate, while the extra wide forward opening increases the diameter of the moving Stream. This design is the result of extensive testing and represents the best balance between width and turbulence of the flow pattern. It includes a magnet holder suitable for aquariums up to 1" thick.

The pump features an automatic shut-down that will stopped the pump immediately in case of blockage. After the blockage has been removed, the pump will start up automatically after a delay of 20 seconds. The pump control is thermally protected and its power supply unit is protected against shortcircuit and thermal overload. The 6255 also includes a fish care function that rotates the propeller slowly once every 20 seconds in feeding and maintenance mode to prevent fish from staying in the housing.

I bought 2 of these pumps a few months agoMy tank is large with a lot of rock work, so I went with these pumps thinking that they would work for a very long time (after I buried them behind the rock work)within 2 months, 1 of them has gone dead & I have to pick down the rock work just to get at itwhat is very disappointing is that I also bought a pair of Tunze wave-makers & one of them also stopped workingI don't think the Tunze quality is what it used to be & will probably end up choosing a different brand as I add more pumps to the tank

Had two MP40s in my 240. They were LOUD. Loud,and vibrated too. They sounded like an outboard motor. Had to always adjust them when they started to vibrate. My tank is on the 1st floor and it drove me crazy when the MP40s vibrated. I'm upstairs in laying on my bed. Now I have two Tunze stream 6255s. Hooked up to a Tunze controller. These pumps rock and are quiet. They are twice as powerful compared to the MP40s..They also produce a decent wave in my 240 when I use the controller..
