Reef Octopus Octo Pulse 4

The new Octo Pulse 4 is a fully controllable flow pump that moves up to 4500gph and consumes no more than 32 watts of power in the process. The broad flow water movement will encourage coral growth instead of blasting it away with harmful "hot spots" associated with other wave pumps.

Direct Flow Where You Need It the Most
With its 360° magnetic mount, the Octo Pulse can easily get the flow precisely where you need it. The rear of the Octo Pulse has a convex rounded shape which cradles nicely into a concave mounting magnet, allowing the pump assembly to gyrate in any direction. The Octo Pulse`s low-profile magnetic mount offers a 25 degree range of motion and the entire pump is capable of rotating 360 degrees!

Multi-Function Controller
The Octo Pulse Multi-Function Controller allows you to create pulsing or surge effects with 4 preset pulsing patterns as well as a 15 or 60 minute feed mode. 

Universal 0-10v Control
For all those that desire more versatility, the Octo Pulse can link up to most 3rd Party Controllers by using an available 0-10v port. This makes the pump very versatile and almost universally compatible with most system controllers including the APEX by Neptune Systems.

Yes, I would recommend this.

Pulse 4 is powerful!

Pros: Everything

Cons: Cord in water

I have 4 pulse 4s running in the 350 gallon reef. They move as much water as the MP40s and are able to be directional. The only con is the cable in the water. But I believe that EcoTech has that as a patent. Anyhow, best bang for the buck and they are amazing with the Hydros Wave Engine and Apex.

This is where it’s at!

Pros: MOVES WATER...a lot more than you’ll need

Cons: Can be too strong in some applications. But just go with it’s little brother!

This pump can seriously move some water!! On my 120 I had to keep it turned down. I bought another to go on the 180 knowing I’ll only need two to get the job done on my mix reef.

Octopuses 4

A lot stronger than what I thought. I got to keep it turned down to a third but it moves water great.
