    Hi reefers

    This is only for reefers that want a strong flow in larger aquariums;)

    We imported this for that small group of reefers with large aquariums and LOW budgets.

    Selling for only R660-00

    I saw them.
    AWESOME
    Not suitable for a small cube :)

    using 2 of these on opposite sides of a 1.8m tank. Will have turbulent flow like crazy in the middle.

    This would probably be a bit much in a 5 footer hey?

    I wanted to as this in another thread but anyway;

    I've seen some large and beautiful tanks with flow running from only 1 direction. It's randomized with controllers, usually Tunze or Vortech but I cant see how it reaches all the possible dead spots, like behind a island on the other side of the tank.

    Are these streams chaotic/random enough? I'm asking because a quad power head like this on a controller would pretty much do the same thing...

    what controllers could you use on a sun sun? The new sun suns with the titanium shafts should react better to being turned on and off

    Havent used these pumps, but i can tell you that one MP40 Vortech on a 1.5M tank just doesnt quite cut it. Had to add in a JVP-202 (12 000lph) and still i find that i have a dead spot or two.

    However, When i spoke to anthony calfo - he said its not the worst thing in the world to have a deadspot or two, infact it can help with maintenance (all detritus settles in those spots and can be easily siphoned out )

    Got a jvp-202 on the one side of my 1.5 and I plan on just adding another to the other side untill I save up for a vortech kit...
    Think this system would be asome on a 1.8m

    it really depends on your tank size as my 1.3*70W*55H had 2*12000 lph sun suns and they were too much for me and i took them out.I have 2 4400 and 2 3800 seios and my mushrooms are still not opening fully need to adjust the pumps

    How about a video of them in action?
    What would the flow be on these 4 puppies?
