Boost vital aquarium water movement using less electricity
Aquarium circulation pump recreates natural water currents
Locking suction cup for easy aquarium installation and removal
Reproduce river and reef currents to create a natural, realistic aquarium environment. The Aqueon Circulation Pump generates water movement inspired by nature to benefit both freshwater and reef aquarium systems. Active water movement helps fish, corals, and invertebrates acclimate faster and encourage fish to be more active to increase your viewing enjoyment.
The Aqueon Circulation Pump utilizes an energy-efficient motor and impeller to save on electric costs. Easy-lock suction cup mount locks and releases at the push of a button to make installation, removal, or adjustments a snap. Cord-holding clips are located on both sides of the pump for flexible positioning of the pump. UL-listed 6-ft cord.
4-1/2" x 2-3/8" x 3-1/2" high
5-1/2" x 2-7/8" x 4-1/4" high
5-7/8" x 2-7/8" x 4-1/4" high
Check pump for any signs of shipping damage. If damaged, do not operate and return to place of purchase.
Clean aquarium glass in desired pump mounting location.
Press suction cup attachment with pump attached firmly against glass.
Fold suction assist lever arm down to lock pump securely in place.
Pump can be moved into desired flow direction.
Tighten universal joint lock to secure pump in place (for Models ACP 700-2400).
Plug pump into receptacle. Always be sure that pump is completely submerged before operating. Do not run pump dry. Be sure that the cord makes a "drip loop" to prevent water from running down and into the receptacle.
To maintain efficient performance of the pump, periodic cleaning is required.
Unplug pump and remove from the aquarium.
Clean the outside of the pump motor body and impeller cage with a brush or scouring pad to remove accumulated algae and debris.
Remove impeller cage by squeezing tabs on pump motor body simultaneously. Pull cage forward to release.
Clean impeller by wiping with a soft cloth. Rinse the pump motor body under fresh water.
Reinsert impeller back into impeller well and reattach cage.
An important component of a natural environment is water movement. Corals and invertebrates need irregular currents for both feeding and waste removal. Wavemakers have been developed to meet this need by imitating ocean currents in the aquarium.
A crucial - and often overlooked - aspect of keeping a reef aquarium is water movement. Proper water movement goes a long way toward helping a reef system thrive. Corals and other reef inhabitants are accustomed to rapid, constant water movement.
Water current is essential to nourish and feed your aquarium's inhabitants, as well as clean and regulate your aquarium's water. In addition, poor water movement hinders biological filtration, which in turn, raises toxins to dangerous levels.
