The world's very 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.  


Riptide Crossflow Technology

Crossflow Technology

Gyre Generation
New - 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 Propeller Flow Technology


Propeller Flow

Other Pumps

Standard 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 side to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, ie. generating "gyre flows".
