- A400 DC Controllable Pump (6,060 GPH) - Abyzz
Quality controllable DC pumps are hard to find, we did a bit of searching around and found Abyzz. A German company that is only using the best parts to make reliable, efficient controllable DC pumps. The easy to use driver boasts a full menu that has a LCD display allowing you to know the status of the pump, power usage, RPM, overall percentage of flow, temperature, and more. Abyzz pumps are fully controllable from 0-100% allowing you to set the flow exactly where you need it.

Max Head - 30.55 feet
- Internal or External application
- Super silent operation
- Fully Controllable from 0-100% in 1% increments
- MCFS (Menu Controlled Flow Sequencer) for random, waves etc

From titanium impeller shafts to the sinusoidal three-phase synchronous motor, the materials used in the Abyzz pumps have been carefully selected for harmonious compatibility and integration. Calcium deposits are easily the biggest avoidable issue with pumps used in saltwater aquariums. Abyzz has gone a step above the competition by including a pre-installed flush bearing, and silicon carbide bearings that will help protect against calcium deposits forming in the first place allowing a lifetime of operation.
One of the concerns when choosing a large pump should be power consumption and efficiency. Abyzz motors operate at an efficiency factor of over 90% making them the perfect energy saving solution. The driver and motor run off 12v allowing them to be used with an uncounted amount of applications. Each controller also has a 0-10v port for external control from aquarium controllers like the Neptune Apex system. Abyzz does make dedicated connections for different brands of aquariums controllers like GHL and Neptune that should be available very shortly.

Expensive but truly the best pump available. By Z-Ski Reefer on 9/30/2018Z-Ski Reefer would recommend this product to a friendI swapped out this when the Deep Water Aquatics DC15 started periodically shutting off. I am flowing considerably more water at 60% than the DC 15 at 100% from my basement to the first floor. I am running it at 70% and don't need more. I was also able to adjust the flow to silence the overflow without touching a valve since you can adjust this 1% at a time.
Best pump hands down By Brian on 12/10/2017Brian would recommend this product to a friendOn my 310 gallon DT with 1540 gallon sump, replaced 3 RO various 8 pumps with one A400.....hands down the best purchase and completely worth every penny. Handles the flow needs with ease, head pressure is incredible and super quiet. Got 3 pumps for sale now that I do t need.
Incredible pump! By jeff on 11/15/2016jeff would recommend this product to a friendLike the review above, I was running a leaky Reeflo Hammerhead, then tried a Royal Exclusiv Red Dragon 230w pump (which is a great pump BTW), but this A400 is on a whole other level. Obviously it's hard to compare it to other pumps based on price, but the GPH is about the same as the other 2 pumps, but in reality there is no comparison. I run this on a 600 gallon reef with multiple reactors and a chiller loop in the attic running water through a chiller in a different room, and it does all that at 90% power, where as I used to have to run 2 separate pumps for what I was doing.
It's expensive, but this will be the last pump you buy, well worth it in my opinion!
This is a real piece of art By Michael on 11/12/2016Michael would recommend this product to a friendI used Reeflo Hammerhead Hybrid (6000/4590 GPH) for 3 years+, during those times, pump seal was leaking from time to time, it also gets louder. Finally my LFS told me the best upgrade I can do is try A400, it is pricey unit but I don't have the time and patience to deal with the Reeflo anymore, popped the A400 in, running 100% for 2 month now, although on paper it is only 60 GPH higher than reeflo, but I can tell you the flow is much quicker than before, I had to readjust the all my exit valves to accommodate the quicker flow. Best part is, it has no more leaky spot since its inside the sump, and no more noise as well. my sump is setup in the basement furnace room and the two display tanks are upstairs, only noise I can hear when I'm down that room is my furnaces now.
One drawback on this unit is the heat coming off the control unit, it runs pretty hot when running 100% 24/7, so i bought a cheap fishtank fan off ebay to cool it.
Overall I'm a happy customer, my LFS in Canada brought it in for me, and I'm glad to see BRS is carrying this pump now.
I was looking for an internal powerful pump but is it compatible with apex?
I have included a link to the Neptune forum where this discussion is taking place. The abyzz can be set up to run on the Variable Voltage ports on the apex. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
