- Turbelle Stream 6065 (1700 GPH) - Tunze
Why does BRS recommend this?
Tunze Stream pumps are some of the quietest pumps for the price. We have used these pumps in multiple tank builds and have never been disappointed. They are not necessarily the cheapest AC powered pumps on the market, however they are very quiet, can be pointed in any direction, and have one of the industry’s best warranty and customer service through Tunze USA.
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 65 to 210 gallons
- Flow rate: 1,700 GPH
- Energy consumption: 12 W
- Voltage/frequency: 120v Hz
- Cable length: 78.7”

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.

The product performs as required By Deep Reef on 2/9/2017Deep Reef would recommend this product to a friendTired of the Chinese pumps that fail every 4 months
awesome By John on 2/13/2013John would recommend this product to a friendAmazing pump. Very well built. Very strong.
Excellent For current By FNG Reefer on 4/21/2011FNG Reefer would recommend this product to a friendJust Excellent moving large amounts of water. Very different than a Hydor Koralia. Hydor Koralias shoot a very broad cone. Tunzes shoot a much faster tighter cone. I use 2 Hydor Evolution 1400 in my 92 corner to create a slow spiral flow through the tank. I use My single Tunze 6065 to shoot water across the top of the tank. Moves serious amouts of water, Glimmering is perfect from my 400 watt halide. Water hits the other side and creates a down current. Bit pricey. But achieves results not possibly with Hydors.
Great Pump By Downbeach on 12/13/2010Downbeach would recommend this product to a friendIf you don't need or want to control your flow, these are singularly the best units. I'm using two 6065's and two 6025's on timers.
Would one of these powerheads work for my 93 gallon cube aquarium or would I need two powerheads? Thank you in advance
Does this unit require a wavemaker, or will it work without one?
The 6065 is a standard powerhead that just plugs into the wall and does not require a wave maker (nor would it be compatible with one if you had it).
