- Tunze Turbelle Stream 6105 Controllable
Fantastic Product By ralph892 on 6/4/2014ralph892 would recommend this product to a friendI replaced two MP40's with two of the 6105's. Both sets of powerbeads were connected through the Neptune Apex controller. The reason I replaced them was two fold. First was that the MP40's were really loud when I had them at 80% in ReefCrest mode and and other mode where the pumps went from like 40 to 80 over and over. Second I kept going through wet side assemblies on the MP40's.
The 6105's are so quiet that I can hear a pin drop in my house now. It is absolutely amazing. The power that the 6105's put out is really astounding as well. The 6105's hook to the Apex differently and it may not be quite as intuitive as the MP40's but any forum has lots on it.
I can say how long they last because they are new but since the design is inside the tank I am assuming it will be much longer then the 100.00 wet side assemblies. The 6105's are easy to hide and the noise difference is amazing.
I will not change back I can promise that. The wave action I now get is really great. I can make my tank jump if I want it to.
Best pump IMO By Denise on 5/12/2014Denise would recommend this product to a friendI have the 6105's on my 150 and my 210. I use them with controllers. They work really well. I 've had some Tunze pumps in constant use for over 5 years with no problems. I love the reliability and power. They may be more expensive to buy, but if you're in this hobby for the long haul, you will love these pumps!
Power and quiet By joseph on 8/10/2013joseph would recommend this product to a friendThis is one powerful pump. I just finished cleaning my rocks with the turkey baster and than along comes the Tunze 6105. Dirt coming from the rocks like they were never cleaned. I have the included wide angle shield on it and it is great. You have to hold your hand in front of it to tell if it's on. Time will tell if it stays quiet but I have faith in Tunze. You won't be sorry you investd in this.
Great flow By Joepat on 7/29/2013Joepat would recommend this product to a friendGreat flow and real quiet. Can't wait to get another one. I had detritus coming out of the rocks and the next day the water was extra clean.
Powerfull By Joepat on 7/29/2013Joepat would recommend this product to a friendInstalled this last week and can't believe the flow from just one pump.
Going to order another one next week along with the controller 7096.
Great product By lwillis22 on 5/14/2013lwillis22 would recommend this product to a friendI have 2 of these on my 110 gallon reef and I love them. I also have the vortech mp40's on my 125 gallon and I think I prefer the tunze over the vortech for the easy of moving the flow where you want it and super quiet.
tunze By duke of Earl on 5/8/2013duke of Earl would recommend this product to a friendVery very pleased with this controlablek powerhead. They are just so awsome in every way. From the mount which is so easy to adjust to the ball shaped powerhead itself. Paired up with a second one and controlled by tunze 7095 I would highly recomend this prodcct to anyone.
Quiet By ReefDVMs on 4/30/2013ReefDVMs would recommend this product to a friendI own mp40 before these and I love these no more clicking sounds in my living room as the pumps turn on and off, yes they take up a bigger foot print in the tank but well worth the added quietness
awesome pumps By chris on 4/25/2013chris would recommend this product to a friendI have had these pumps for years. I feel they are the best out there. Customer service is very helpful and a pleasure to talk with.
Easy to use, quick setup By Ryan on 11/23/2012Ryan would recommend this product to a friendThese pumps are very easy to use as well as very powerful. Setup is self explanatory. I own four of them and have had nothing but problems with one. This pump would never listen to the controller. It would either stay on at full speed or shut off completely and not turn back on. After having it sent off twice now it seems to be operating correctly.
awsome Powerhead and comes with a wide turbulance head! By Ken on 9/14/2012Ken would recommend this product to a friendI was afraid that this pump would be too big for a 80Gal tank but with the new wide distribution head it will be perfect for the tank!
Amazing By Steven on 9/7/2012Steven would recommend this product to a friendI bought two of these for my 320gal FOWLR tank. My tank is 116' long (9 1/2ft). I plugged in one and saw the entire top surface start to ripple pretty good, and when I plugged in the second it just got even better. I am very pleased with this purchase and will definitly buy Tunze for life. Can't wait to get my 6055's and the 7096 controller.

Which tunze powerhead or heads would you recommend for a mixed reef 150 gallon (4.'x2.'x30.") tank with mostly lps corals.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi John,
With the LPS corals I am partial to the 6095, its wide flow pattern is pretty easy on the LPS and 2 of them should be pretty good for a tank your size!

Best location to place powerheads.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi James,
It really depends on the tank and the aquascape, but the usual method would be to put them on opposite ends of the tank pointing towards the middle/front of the tank. Ideally the streams from each intersect to create a more random flow pattern.

With the 6095 or the 6105 Tunze powerheads which controller gives me more control, tunzes or apex?
Bulk Reef Supply Technically the Apex gives you the ability to customize the pumps in basically any way, however it is a very manual and fairly time consuming process compared to the Tunze controllers which would cover the majority of situations folks are looking for but only takes minutes to configure. Really just depends on what you prefer for your situation.
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.
