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.

  • 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!
  • Fantastic Product By ralph892 on 6/4/2014

    I 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 5/12/2014

    I 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 8/10/2013

    This 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 7/29/2013

    Great 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 7/29/2013

    Installed 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 5/14/2013

    I 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 5/8/2013

    Very 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.
