“Works for me”
4.0

This is my second one of these pumps. I decided that the price was right for what I needed. The other more sophisticated systems had nice features for a full reef tank, but they are very expensive. My tank is mainly for fish with one mushroom coral. I do take the pump apart to clean when i clean ...Read More

“Zoo Med”

This product has worked great for me....I try to place it away from the direct light of the metalhalide lamps to reduce calcium an alge build up at the rotating discharge. The old one at the opposite end of my 150 system is approximately 6 yrs old. I perform routine maintenance only when the disch...Read More

“Flow Leaks Out Sides”
1.0

To start, the nozzle at the end always stays in one spot, it does not even move for me. Also the water flow escapes from the sides of the nozzle. Not something you want in your tank. Not a good product. You are better off with another pump.

Seems to be working well. I wish it was a little more powerful. Also, the port that connects to the undergravel filter line is difficult to connect to. Still, its much better than the flo deflector wavemakers, which get noisy and require frequent cleaning.

It still gives flow when not rotating but whats the point. Just buy some Maxi Jets with a controller. I also didn't give it another star because it is fla...Read More

“just right”

Just what your tank needs, great water movement your corals will grow with this running in your tank. I have a 55 and all I need is one, buy it and forget it, you will see the difference.

“Efficient, more of a hassle”
2.0

It's a great idea but the designing is a little shaky. It works great for small tanks when the rotating wheel is clean. For larger tanks a wavemaker is the way to go. It creates a "wave" below water for a short range, but not a very large wave so many are needed. I needed to clean mine wee...Read More
