Next Generation of Water Moving Technology
The Maxspect Gyre is the world`s first "gyre"- generating water moving device for aquariums. Compared to traditional powerheads and wavemakers that are based on propeller nozzle flow technology, the Maxspect Gyre is based on advanced crossflow technology which produces massive horizontal water movement leaving little to no deadspots in its wake.

Max Flow 2,300gph | 8~35 watts | 25-100+ gallons
Includes Single Gyre XF230 Pump and Advanced Controller
Applicable for glass or acrylic aquariums up to 1/2 in.

Gyre - 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"

Standard Pump 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

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".

Overall very good features and well written manual

PROS
Lot of great features and 2 pumps will work with 1 controller. Also battery backup is available to help keep water movement when/if there is a power failure.
CONS
Display is small but thats what helps keep the size of the controller small also.
REVIEW
Rated 3 stars because no matter how hard I push the AC Power cord plug into the transformer I can not get it to go all the way into the opening. This causes the power cord to fall out of the transformer with any movement of the cord. I bent the 2 prongs a little and that helped some.

I replaced my Tunze stream pumps with a single XF-280 for my 225 acrylic reef tank. Its a 2x6 base and 30" tall. I have the controller set to max at 60% in a traditional gyre flow and am absolutely thrilled. Every 6 seconds or so I have a tank-width cyclical wave that launches up and around the t...Read More

This pump is the best thing to happen to my tank since I added the two linked single controller Nanobox Duo Plus lights. I had the Orion LT120 light that came with my JBJ RL45, they make a good workbench light. I haven't even begun to explore the numerous modes that can be used with the Maxspect. Ev...Read More

PROS
Quick setup, Multiple flow options, Ability to increase or decrease flow strength
CONS
Instruction manual not very clear or intuitive. Had to "play" with the controller to get familiar with the function.
REVIEW
I got two pumps and the controller recently. So far I have one pump running in my 55gal tank and the flow is excellent! As soon as I turned it on, sediment and bits of food started lifting from the bottom and I could see the "gyre" function in my tank! This is only at 50% flow. At 70% I did see some...Read More
