The IceCap Gyre 3K flow pump uses patented Maxspect technology to deliver gyre water movement at an economical price. Designed for reef aquariums 25 gallons or larger, the IceCap 3K can move 3,000 gallons per hour in gyre flow patterns.

Pumps designed for wave-making often move water only up and down in the aquarium. The water rocks vertically with little horizontal movement. Everything from food to debris tends to stay in the same relative location in the water. The IceCap Gyre 3K creates a gyre flow pattern, meaning the entire mass of aquarium water moves from one side of the tank to the other.

Gyre flow keeps all the aquarium water moving throughout the tank. This brings food to the corals and carries away waste materials. Fish love the flow pattern, too!

The IceCap Gyre 3K controller comes with five useful water-flow programs plus a feeding mode. No complicated programming skills are needed. With the 3K your entire reef will be bathed in healthy, flowing water.

What we really like about the IceCap Gyre 3K:

  • Moves a lot of water in the tank
  • Prevents dead spots behind live rock
  • Easy to install with the magnetic mount
  • Installs on glass or acrylic up to ½” thick
  • Economical price
  • Easy to use controller
  • Good build quality
  • Uses patented Maxspect Gyre technology

  • Five controllable flow modes: Constant Speed, Pulsing, Gradual Pulsing, Random and Alternating Gyre
  • 10-minute feeding mode with automatic re-start
  • Simple set-up and program selection

IceCap Gyre or Maxspect Gyre?

Both pumps use the latest in crossflow technology and can produce the iconic Gyre flow. The 3K is similar in size to the Maxspect XF250 but lacks some of the more advanced controls that the Maxspect Gyre has.

The Maxspect Gyre with Advanced Controller can control 2 Gyre pumps. The 2 pumps can run in Sync or Random mode, one with a timed delay and one without. You can also run one in reverse mode while the other is normal.

Protect Your Tank with the IceCap Battery Backup

Fish and corals can die within 4-6 hours without water flow in an aquarium. In the event of a power outage, is your tank protected?

Connect your IceCap Gyre 3K pump to the IceCap Battery Backup for continuous pump operation up to 35 hours after the loss of power. Add a second battery backup to double the run time!

Wide range of flow patterns. Strong magnet, Quick and easy set up, low cost LCD easy to use control screen.

The only thing I can think of is the gyre ends are a bit difficult to turn to alter the flow angle.
REVIEW
This has to be one of my best purchases ever for my 130 gallon reef tank. I was Leary at first if it could put out enough flow for my tank size, but I was pleasantly proved wrong. This is an amazing gyre pump that has so many options to alter the water flow patter intensity. It is literally half the...Read More

Have had this pump running 10 days now. Pump really moves water and has many options for settings to meet any need you would have.
