Maxspect

Maxspect designed their Gyre pumps using crossflow technology that circulates a tremendous volume of water without creating abrasive “hot spots” that blast corals and other invertebrates. The XF250 pushes water in a horizontal pattern across the tank. The water hits the opposite side of the aquarium and makes a return trip toward the pump. It’s like a conveyor belt of water! This is called a Gyre flow pattern. Why is this a breakthrough? Instead of randomly pushing small streams of water around the tank, the Maxspect Gyre keeps all the water flushing through your reef and over your corals.

Powerheads and wavemakers use traditional impellers and propellers to create water flow. In many cases the water flow is focused on a limited area of the reef, leaving stagnate “dead spots” throughout the tank. The water velocity is very strong near the pump outlet but drops off at the far end of the aquarium. Propeller-driven wave-making set-ups create a vertical flow pattern. The wave energy tends to move the water up and down like a wave but does not actually move water around the aquarium.

What we really like about the Maxspect Gyre XF250:

  • Circulates up to 5300 gallons of water per hour
  • Eliminates dead zones behind live rock
  • Flow is fast but won’t stress corals
  • Mounts on glass or acrylic up to 3/4” thick
  • Easily programmed with the Gyre Advanced Controller
  • Maxspect is the original/official Gyre pump manufacturer
