IceCap Gyre pumps bring powerful, signature Gyre crossflow and controllability at a value-oriented price point. Using officially licensed technology from Maxspect, the IceCap Gyre pumps generate a "sheet" of water across your tank, virtually eliminating any dead spots with improved overall water circulation. Compared to other traditional propeller style powerheads, the Gyre produces an even, linear flow that can reach across longer tanks without creating direct hot spots of flow. 

  • Gyre Flow Virtually Eliminates Dead Spots
  • Evenly Distributed, Linear Flow
  • Twin Directional Flow Cages
  • Discrete Profile
  • Mount Vertically or Horizontally
  • Magnetic Mount
  • WiFi Controllable
  • 1 year warranty

Product Questions

Do these pumps pair with the Apex controller? ie. Can I forgo getting the controller if I have an Apex?
Question by: David Mashhoodi on Feb 3, 2024, 2:01 AM
Unfortunately this pump is not compatible with the Apex and you would need the included WaveEngine LE.

I hope this helps!

Is this usable right out of the box without purchasing any additional parts?
Question by: Robert Viviano on Nov 4, 2022, 2:39 PM
Thanks for the question! This is ready to set up out of the box without any additional purchases necessary. Please let us know if we can help with anything else!

Answer by: Kyle Thomas (BRS Staff) on Nov 9, 2022, 1:09 PM
Do I need the full Hydros controller system to use this? Or can the WaveEngine LE be used standalone?
Question by: Ken Ramey on Jun 3, 2022, 1:45 PM
Thanks for the question! This will work without the Hydros controller and works standalone without issue. The option to add the controller for further integration is there if you'd like in the future though!
Answer by: Kyle Thomas (BRS Staff) on Jun 7, 2022, 10:31 AM
Is wifi required or can you still use the app within Bluetooth range?
Question by: Jason Brown on Feb 20, 2022, 2:29 PM
Hey Jason, thank you for the question! Coral Vue indicates that you will have App-Based Wireless Control from Anywhere with these. As long as the controller is hooked up to its wifi, you are good to go.
