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, the gyre excels in generating massive movements 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, ie. generating "gyre flows".


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



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
