- Auqa Gadget Spin Stream Nozzle - Innovative Marine
Use the Spin Stream to create a natural ocean current in your reef tank. The pressure of the flow will push the nozzle around creating a randomized flow in every direction. Randomized flow will help simulate natural reef environments and with the Spin Stream Nozzle attachment from Innovative Marine creating that perfect ecosystem is becoming a reality. This natural motion will improve oxygen levels and coral growth and expansion while removing waste from corals.

Great Gadget By Steve on 1/19/2020Steve would recommend this product to a friendI purchased two nozzles to create random flow in my Nuvo 20 quarantine tank. After 4 hours of operation, there is no noise / sound emanating from either of the nozzles. As an added benefit, they're counter rotating from each other. This will work wonders once the QT is switched from fish to corals.
Love it! By Michael on 1/22/2019Michael would recommend this product to a friendGreat little purchase to change up the flow of your tank. It does reduce the efficiency of your return pump, so expect to upgrade the pump as well. But well worth it and it work's like a champ.
Great for random flow By Robert on 12/18/2018Robert would recommend this product to a friendI bought two of these for my Nuvo 30l. Reading the comments here I was a bit concerned about noise. The break in period for my tank lasted about a month. The first few days they would make a chattering noise as they spun. Eventually the noise goes away completely you just have to give it some time. I have been using them for about 10 months now without any issue.
Nice for random flow By Blair on 12/17/2018Blair would recommend this product to a friendI have two of these in my Nuvo 20 and they generate nice random patterns of flow. Just be aware that they will make some mechanical related sound for about a week or so until they break in.
Great idea, continuous rattling. By Baptong on 10/22/2018Baptong wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBought two of these for my IM 50 Lagoon. Ran it with the IM MIght Jet 538 gph pump. It has great flow and redirects the flow, but unfortunately, has this annoying rattling sound that won't stop. I tried changing the connections, pulled it apart and put it back together, but the rattling still continues. After 3 days, I couldn't take it anymore and had to replace with the stock nozzles, now it is quiet as can be.
Really awesome circulation nozzles! By Nick on 4/19/2018Nick would recommend this product to a friendI've been using 2 of these nozzles in my JBJ45 cube, mixed reef tank for over 2 years now. Like my title states, these nozzles are really awesome. Thanks to them, i never needed additional wave-maker pumps for my tank. I never write reviews, but since ive had them for so long, i felt like i could add my 2 cents. The only issues ive had with these nozzles was when coralline algae grew in between the rotating nozzle & housing, it jammed the nozzles from rotating for a day. But a simply scrap/cleaning was suffice. And one time after rinsing & cleaning with hot water, 1 of the nozzles made a loud clicking sound as it rotated. The noise was gone after 1 day. That's about it. Love this product, i definitely recommend them :)
Good Random Flow But Loud By Dave on 2/21/2018Dave would recommend this product to a friendI have used these before in a 16 gallon nano tank and really liked them. I purchased again for my innovative marine 30l and they are really loud. This tank has a much larger return pump so maybe that could be the reason. I will try them for a couple weeks and maybe they will get quieter. If not they will definitely have to go. The random flow is great but the noise really sucks.
cool until it breaks By Brian on 11/29/2017Brian wouldn't recommend this product to a friendinstalled two on my frag tank, one lasted two weeks, the other one bit the dust in four months.
they were kind of noisy to boot.
Excellent low cost way to improve flow By William on 11/13/2017William would recommend this product to a friendOverall I'm rather happy with this purchase. I'm working on a 33g frag tank build and happened across an old oscillating return nozzle that I had purchased ages ago and totally forgotten about. It was awesome for about a day before it crapped out on me so I went to see what other options were available and settled on the Aqua Gadget after reading the positive reviews. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend if you are looking to mix up your flow a bit but want to keep things simple. The only thing I wasn't too happy with was that there was a lot of water pressure lost from my return pump. It appears that it takes a lot of energy to spin the nozzle and as such overall flow rate is reduce. Fortunately my return pump was significantly more powerful than I needed originally so I was able to dial it up to full throttle and achieved the flow rate that I had when running it at about 50% without the nozzle.
Silent as far as I can tell
Does a good job of mixing up flow
I like the angle that they have the nozzle, excellent at directing flow low and high
Greatly reduces water flow since nozzle circulation is driven by some of the water pressure
Not a huge fan of the adapters included. Took a little creativity to get it hooked up
Great little tank gadget! By Brad on 11/7/2017Brad would recommend this product to a friendI really like this thing, it helps the random flow pattern so well. Its perfect for any nano tank. I put one in my 3.7 gal Pico and it has helped a lot! Just keep in mind that this functions off of pump flow, as well has a wide nozzle so the flow doesn't seem as strong since it is a larger nozzle. Great little device tho! These will onto any small tank I ever have!
Love it By richard on 10/16/2017richard would recommend this product to a friendPut this on my 24 gallon aquapod and I love it nice random flow pattern seems to be built really well.
A good buy By Jerry on 9/26/2017Jerry would recommend this product to a friendMy purchase of Auqa Gadget Spin Stream Nozzle has been nice ., it's quiet and fits well. Worked in both of my tanks so far so good and no complaints. I would say if you like movent and want your return to provide some then this is your buy.
I have a drilled 40gal breeder that is drilled in the back with a bulkhead for the return. Can this fit into a 3/4" bulkhead with a slip connection, or does it need anything else?
Due to the soft/pliable nature of the adapter pieces, these will slip over the output of a variety of pump types, but unfortunately they won't work as a slip connection with a bulkhead slip fitting. Generally at the very least you would need to have a loc-line output attached or something of this type for the adapter to slip over.
Have a great day!
