1.5" Model Sea Swirl
FOR AQUARIUMS 180 GALS. OR LARGER!
YOU HAVE A WATER RETURN INTO THE TANK----- WHY NOT OSCILLATE IT !!
The 1.5'’ Sea Swirl Model satisfies the need for an oscillating device for large aquariums to create a broad oscillating current, not linear current like our competitors at an economical price and it is very energy efficient too!
Using our customer’s request’s and needs for a higher flow product for over 4 years now, we have developed and tested the 1.5'’ SS Model with great success.
The 1.5'’ Model was designed for tanks 180 gals. and up and offers the truly smallest footprint area seen in the aquarium of only 2-1/4'’
The 1.5'’ Sea Swirl is to be used with the Low Wattage/ High Flow pumps such as ReeFlo Snapper, Dart, Barracuda and Hammerhead along with many of the Dolphin line of aquarium pumps that people use to return water to their tank. When using the 1.5'’ model it is to be hard-plumbed only!
Also, with the optional 2'’ outlet the 1.5'’ Sea Swirl will produce exceptionally wide gentle circulation.
Two units mounted in opposite corners(front/rear) in the aquarium would cover every area of the tank with ‘’swaying’‘ motion which is seen in nature. This motion is not fast like some of the products on the market, but will produce a strong ‘’wave-crashing’‘ motion then a very calm current will follow as the Sea Swirl oscillates.
As corals grow into high current areas in the aquarium if the current is Linear the corals will tend to shed tissue and possibly even perish, grow around the linear/pulsed current or stop growing all together to avoid the straight line current. Check out the Penn State video with Dr. Sanjay Joshi on our home page! Not so with oscillating current as it is always changing from strong to calm, just like the natural current pattern in the ocean.
With our 12 years in the industry producing our smaller Sea Swirl models here in United States plus the added superior repair and customer service over this time you are assured of a quality product.
To back up this statement we are giving a 2 year warranty(supplied info card must be sent in to Aquarium Currents).....One of the BEST in the Industry compared to our competitors!
So, in closing....Since you have a return water line into the aquarium anyway, why not oscillate it and enjoy the benefits....Nature-like current produced......Economically priced, at almost half the cost of our competition!......only 3 watts of power to operate the 1.5'’ Sea Swirl...... It IS the MOST energy efficient oscillating product on the market that flows up to 5800gph!

Sea Swirl Aquarium Supplies
The Sea Swirl, a popular aquarium wavemaking device, was developed by Aquarium Currents Manufacturing Inc. in Georgetown, SC. The company evolved from an earlier retail store called Tropical & Marine Paradise in Stroudsburg, PA. For 15 years, the masterminds behind the Sea Swirl worked with thousands of aquarium hobbyists on hundreds of different applications. Over time, they saw many products come and go; some worked, some didn’t. This inspired them to apply their years of experience and interaction with hobbyists to create only the finest, most productive aquarium products. The makers of the Sea Swirl promise it is only the beginning in a long line of groundbreaking aquarium supplies.
