Flow Comes Full Circle

  • Versatile Cross-Flow Pump
  • Control with MyAI, Mobius, or MXM
  • Four Easy-to-Use Pump Modes
  • Ideal for Aquariums 20 Gallons and Larger


Orbit pumps produce a unique type of flow.  Circling the aquarium with water movement-  like the water that moves within the ocean.  Orbit provides a cross-flow current that simulates the tidal flow experienced on ocean reefs that is an excellent mechanism for lifting excess nutrients from the bottom of the aquarium for removal by filtration.

Like ocean currents it is not just one type of flow that makes the reef thrive, but really make your aquarium thrive with flows of all types.  When combined with the directional and random flow patters of our Nero pump line a true recreation of ocean flow can be achieved- powerful, directional, systematic, and chaotic.


Simple Built-In Control

All AI devices include smart control standard. Choose from the myAI or Mobius app on any iOS or Android device to easily set up or program your AI equipment. The Orbit pumps can also be controlled via Apex Fusion by utilizing the MXM module.


Reversible Flow

A interesting feature of the Orbit pump is its ability to not just spin forward but to also spin backwards.  It provides unique opportunities for different flow patterns.

The true power of reverse mode is unlocked when combined with a second orbit pump.  While one pump is pushing the flow in a singular cross-flow direction, a second pump can run in reverse mode to help keep the flow moving across the length of the aquarium.

Constant Speed: A constant stream of flow at the intensity of your choosing.

Pulse: Consisting of uniform high and low levels.

Random: Simulates a high-energy reef environment.

Product Questions

If I put this in a 75 gallon would it be enough flow by itself for LPS and a few SPS including 2 or 3 acros? Or would I need an additional Nero or MP40?

For a tank of that size it would be better to have multiple powerheads to avoid dead spots.

Hey there,
Thank you for reaching out to us. We are still testing but it will be very similar to the Icecap Gyres.

Please let me know if you need anything further and take care!

How long is the cord from pump and cord from power supply? Is the power supply a brick or box at the outlet?
Question by: Michael on Nov 7, 2023, 6:55 PM
Hey there,
Thank you for reaching out to us. From the pump to the controller is approximately 10 feet and from the controller to the wall box is approximately 5 feet.
