Pump ONLY - must be used with the Gyre advanced controller and power supply

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 5,300gph | 8~60 watts | 50-800+ gallons
Gyre XF-250 pump ONLY - requires a controller and power supply to operate
Applicable for glass or acrylic aquariums up to 3/ 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".

I would like to connect 2 of these "pump only" units to an APEX VDM via maxspct cables: Do i need the maxspect controller also to make this work? If not, what power supplies should be used for 250 pumps?

Massive Flow
reviewerbadge
PROS
flow, flow patterns, two power heads and 1 controller
CONS
noisy with high flow rates
REVIEW
Have two running on my 120 (4x2x2'). They move massive amounts of water and now being able to hook two up to one controller is wonderful! I love the flow patterns the advanced controller has. Wonderful construction. Can be a little noisy on higher settings.

XF250
reviewerbadge
PROS
A single power supply and a single controller to manage 2 wavemakers; especially, the syncronization between the two XF250's.
REVIEW
I was running 3 x XF130's in a 165 gallon reef tank but still had some dead spots. So I replaced 2 of them with XF250's and so far all is going well. I'm still playing around with the settings because these wavemakers do much more than the XF130's were capable of.

PROS
NO dead spots

not easy to take apart to clean and maintain
REVIEW
I use two of these for my 125gallon tank. Yes, this model is excessive for my tank size. I have both units running at 10% power consumption and produces the absolute perfect balanced flow.
