Tunze pumps are excellent high flow powerheads for a number of reasons
- They are the smallest pumps available and easy to hide.
- They rotate to a wide range of angles for targeted flow.
- They consume less power.
- Available accessories such as the Tunze Rock and Controllers make them even more user-friendly.
- Excellent warranty and customer service.
High flow is very important to maintaining a thriving healthy aquarium. Aquariums with poor flow can experience a number of easily avoidable health issue. Using high flow powerheads in your aquarium will:
- Significantly decrease the risk of algae outbreaks.
- Keep waste and particles suspended longer so skimmers and filters have a better chance of removing them.
- Prevent toxic pockets from forming in hard to reach areas.
- Keep debris from collecting on corals.
- Keep food suspended longer so you can add less food.
- Increase the chances of long term healthy tank success.

Nice gentle flow By Chris on 12/6/2016Chris would recommend this product to a friendUsing this in a small-fish QT tank (15 gallons) for quiet/gentle flow. Seems to be perfect for the application. Usual excellent Tunze quality.
Quality for a low price By John on 6/18/2016John would recommend this product to a friendI got this pump just to mix salt water in a barrel and as a backup to have on hand. Well made and very quiet. My only complaint is that the little rubber mounts pop out really easily when moving the powerhead around. Not really an issue if it just sits in the tank in one place though.
Good product for a small tank By Eric on 3/31/2016Eric would recommend this product to a friendBought 2 of these for my 40B, didn't produce the flow I was expecting but should be more than enough for my tank. They're pretty quiet, just a small humm sound, overall would definitely recommend for the price and quality if you're looking for a nice compact powerhead!
Bigger than it appears. By John on 1/20/2016John would recommend this product to a friendBought 2 for my Red Sea Reefer 350 to create more turbulent flow with my Maxspect gyre. It is too big for my tank. I have ordered a different Tunze Nanostream and maybe that will work. Solidly built just not for me.
