Quick Overview

Why does BRS recommend this?

Tunze Controllable pumps have been around for years and year with a great reputation.  Tunze now includes a controller with all their controllable powerheads which greatly increases their value. The Turbelle pumps are very quiet, and for everything you get the price is hard to beat.


German-made Tunze powerheads are the best high flow powerheads available. They are smaller and can be hidden in the aquarium easier than competing brands. Tunze pumps can be configured in a wide range of positions to target any area of the tank.

  • For aquariums from 50 to 525 gallons

  • Controllable* flow rate: 700 to 3,400 GPH

  • Energy consumption: Maximum of 35W

  • Voltage/frequency: 100-240V/50-60Hz

  • Cable length: 196.8”

  • Diameter: 3.5”

  • Output diameter 1.96”

Product Questions

With the 6095 or the 6105 Tunze powerheads which controller gives me more control, tunzes or apex?
Question by: John on Apr 15, 2014 4:42:00 PM
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.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Apr 15, 2014 4:42:00 PM
I am in the process of gathering items needed to start a 100 gallon tank, and I wanted to know if the stream 6105, combined with the nanostream 6095 would create enough flow? Also I plan on using a Neptune apex in the future, would I be able to control both of these pump simultaneously with that controller? If so can I purchase either the 6105, or the 6095 without the included controller? Would I be able to control both pumps with one of the included controllers in the time that I will be waiting to upgrade to a Neptune system? What hardware associated with these two pumps would I need to be aware of while weighing the pros and cons, as well as considering the budget?
Question by: Justin on Apr 11, 2016 3:08:00 PM
Great question!
The 6105 and the 6095 paired together in the tank would certainly create plenty of flow even for an SPS dominant tank. Both of these can be controlled in the future with the Apex You will need the tunze controller to work with the apex cable and they are not available without the Tunze controller attached. As for hardware you will only need the Tunze to apex link cable in the future. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Best location to place powerheads.
Question by: james on Mar 21, 2014 5:01:00 PM
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.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 21, 2014 5:01:00 PM
Question #1: Should the return pump flow be included in the computation of circulation flow volume and turbulence for a reef aquarium?

Question #2: If the answer to Question #1 is 'yes, then a 235 gph return pump on a BioCube 14 (with 10 gallons of water volume total) should be adequate to maintain healthy soft corals and LPS corals correct?

Question #3: If a reefer wanted to provide more variable flow in a BioCube 14 than can be provided by the 235 gph return pump, what hardware would you recommend specifically to do the job for soft corals and LPS corals? (given that quiet operation is a very high priority).

Many thanks to BRS for providing such great technical support to the reefing community!
Question by: Richard on Apr 20, 2016 1:22:00 PM
Great question!
We do not typically include the return pump flow into the powerhead unless the flow is above 10x. Your bio-cube 14 would have enough flow for soft low flow corals however with higher flow corals you would need supplement to change up the flow. We recommend a small DC pump such as the Ecotech Vortech MP10 or the Tunze DC pumps under 250 GPH rating.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 26, 2016 2:01:00 PM
Which tunze powerhead or heads would you recommend for a mixed reef 150 gallon (4.'x2.'x30.") tank with mostly lps corals.
Question by: John on Apr 10, 2014 11:02:00 AM
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!

Manufacturer's Manual


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.

  • Outstanding Pumps By Mike Nelson on 10/1/2016

    Replacing my old Tunze small brick sized pumps with the new ones......excellent.!!.... new attachment magnets are well designed.........tried the asian knock off pumps first....work for about a year..then die......back to Tunze...should never have left
  • Wow! Just buy this pump! By Pedro on 9/27/2016

    Replaced a Jebao RW-15 that failed twice in 14 months (motor issues).
    Tunze 6105 kills it! Great power and wide flow, positioning master, outstanding control and programming! Perfect hardware as usual for Tunze.
  • Great pump By Eric on 9/26/2016

    This works very well for me - tons of flow, easily aimed and the wave function gives me good pulsing flow in my 150g. I have a smaller fixed flow pump opposite and it makes for some nice random/back-and-forth movement. Very quiet! Comes with two end-pieces for the flow. I'm using the wider and it works well for me. On a longer tank I might go with the narrower end.
  • Moves lots of water By Ken on 9/19/2016

    I really like these pumps I have two on my 180. I would say though when I programmed them through my Apex controller they did make an audible pulse noise when making waves. If there was a way to ramp up speed gradually it would be silent but going from 0-100 in percent in a short burst, you do hear it.
  • Bad Luck? By David on 9/4/2016

    These things move water- lots of it. They can be directed unlike vortechs (I had 2 vortechs and in most ways these are superior). They are quiet. They are robust . It is easy to hook up a battery backup. The downsides; they are a pain to control with apex or similar, and I have had 3 die around the 3 year mark- yes, I could buy replacement motors, but they aren't cheap compared to just buying new. I guess 3 years isn't bad, but it's not great either. That being said, I seem to have had bad luck, as I have one that is still going strong after 7 years, and most people I know have not had this failure rate. And yes, I clean them, don't start and stop them, or run them below 30%. I believe it is the thin film capacitors that die.
  • Super powerful By Nathan on 7/23/2016

    I put one on my 120g and I'm running it at barely over 20%. It's a six foot long tank and I get plenty of current all around the tank. It's super quiet and very versatile on direction. If I had known it was going to be this powerful, I might have even bought a smaller one.
  • Awesome pump By Chris on 6/18/2016

    This pump moves some serious water in my 150 gallon. Got me a nice wave going using this pump. Considered the Gyre but went with this one for better reliability and 2 year warranty. Great pump!
  • Awesome By Rick on 2/29/2016

    Everything I expected it to be and more. So powerful I decided to use the supplied larger nozzle on my six foot tank to disperse flow even more. Battery backup option is the best.
  • Worked like is should and connected to my old tunze controler By Perfect on 12/15/2015

    The only pump I buy
  • Great pumps! By Conny on 7/22/2015

    Recently replaced MP40's as they were failing on the wet side. These pumps are awesome! Move tons of water and very quite. Highly recommend!,
  • 5 years & NO issues By Drew on 7/14/2015

    The ecotech brand is temping but bearing issues drove me off. I have has this without issue on a pulse sequence for years. One DC adapter block was replaced years and placed in a clooer cabinet. I run at 95% max and 2 for 150 gallon are fine for sps tank. Nothing ever sucked in and killed, no "wet" side replacements. Not a focal point of aquarium. Safety switch allows any deep cycle battery instead of a consumer grade motorcycle battery wrapped in aluminum cover.
  • Great pumps By Smilemkr on 7/12/2015

    I replaced 2 MP40's recently and have been more than impressed! Great flow with virtually no noise. Highly recommend these pumps!
