Popular gyre flow generator pump updated with advanced control boasts enhanced water movement modes for superior aquarium water movement. 2,300 max gph Maxspect XF230 Gyre Flow Generator Pump with Advanced Controller lets you create custom water movement with simple, touch control. Choose from multiple water movement modes each further customizable with easy-to-program variables including flow rate, duration, and ramp up/down. Link an optional Maxspect XF230 Gyre Flow Generator Pump - Add-On Unit to unlock more water movement options!
Maxspect Gyre Flow Generator Pumps produce powerful shear flow water movement that travels the entire length of the aquarium. Once traveling from one side of the aquarium to the other, the water flow bounces back, travelling near the bottom of the aquarium producing a circular gyre flow that leaves little to no dead spots in its wake.
Maxspect Gyre Flow Generator Pumps can be installed horizontally or vertically to suit your water movement needs. Magnetic mounting system allows quick and convenient installation. Great for reef aquariums and any system requiring comprehensive water movement.

Next Generation of Water Moving Technology
The Maxspect Gyre is the world's 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 dead spots in its wake.
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 it would bounce back from the opposite site to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, i.e. generating "gyre flows".
Maxspect was founded in 2009, by a group of close friends and coral reef aquarium enthusiasts. The coral reef and marine aquarium scene was rather dull and lack of innovation back then, reef hobbyists were using equipment that had been around for years if not decades, they were lighting their aquariums using lighting equipment such as metal halides and T5HO's.
Most of these lighting equipment were energy inefficient, required frequent replacement due to luminous decay and their performance were not satisfactory. While searching for better lighting equipment but with no avail, an idea struck Maxspect's founders. Why don't we build something ourselves, something that's energy efficient, that can provide great performance for its value and being innovative at the same time? That "something" turned out to be their first generation LED lighting system, and thus Maxspect was founded.
Throughout these years, Maxspect's founders are still very passionate about the hobby, and this passion is reflected through the products that they design, manufacture and bring to the hands of their customers. In the future, Maxspect will continue to amaze their customers with products, passion, and innovation.
