- Turbelle Stream 3 Controllable (660 to 3962 GPH) - Tunze
Controllable from 660 to 3962 GPH
The dead silent Tunze Stream 3 uses magnetic levitation technology to eliminate contact between moving parts with the only contact surfaces being zirconium oxide bearings.
- Controller Included
- Magnetic Levitation
- Long Lasting
- Virtually frictionless between parts
- Can be controlled by 3rd party controllers
- 5-Year Warranty
The Stream 3 includes a Tunze 7090 controller giving you full control over the pumps flow. The controller gives you multiple programming options including feed mode, wave simulation, oscillating current, night mode (Moonlight Photo Sensor 7097.050 required), and auto-adjust wave timing modes. The Tunze Stream 3 can also be controlled by 3rd party aquarium controllers like an Apex or a ReefKeeper.
Every pump also includes its own onboard LED interface with an intelligent operating condition monitoring system that keeps the pump running longer without maintence. Every 24 hours the pump automatically performs an 8-second backflushing operation to help remove any built up deposits that may have formed. Along with Tunze's 0.8Hz FishCare fuction helps prevent injury to any tank inhabitant that may find their way into the pumps propeller.
The Tunze Stream 3 can produce almost 4000 gph making it a perfect pump for large tanks, or even smaller tanks that require high flow. Choose between horizontal flow or vertical flow characteristics by just changing the orientation of the pump. Each Stream 3 comes with a flow grid to help keep unwanted critters from entering the pump. The also come with a flow deflector that will produce a wide beam of flow perpendicular to the Stream 3's body. The deflector can be angled in a variety of different directions allowing you to eliminate stagnant, or low-flow areas of the tank. The pump can also be run without the flow grid or deflector, giving the Stream 3 Pump a very strong, and wide flow pattern with the greatest efficiency.
The new innovative design utilizes a brushless magnetic bearing drive motor that literally levitates the impeller inside of the pump body. The design leads to less heat generated, less friction, and less vibration, which all lead towards a dead silent pump. The efficient design also allows the Tunze Stream 3 pump to produce more flow per watt than traditional style pumps.

Took a little time.... By Vet3138 on 9/5/2018Vet3138 would recommend this product to a friendUpdating my review. Finally got this thing to make a small standing wave but with a little more adjustment it might make a bigger wave. Moves a ton of water but gently, very quiet, corals love the flow and really puff up nice with this running at the right settings. It is even making a small wave with deflector shield on now making it easier to mount. I have a 4x2x2 and main power is 100%, pulse is max and pulse power is off. Top light(main) only is flashing and it flashes a little faster than once per second. I would go ahead and give it 5 stars but it has taken a lot of work to figure this thing out and magnets should be stronger. 0 mechanical issues/breakdowns in well over a year with minimal cleaning.
No Waves By Vet3138 on 8/20/2018Vet3138 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMoves a ton of water, dead quiet, but can not get this thing to make waves. It will not make waves with the deflector which is really necessary in my small 120. No idea how people are using these in tanks under 6 ft in length. Even mounted on glass aiming straight down the tank can not get this thing to make a wave, even called Tunze and got help with set up did exactly what they said, still no waves. Huge disappointment and this thing is massive too. If you can't tell, I'm a little disappointed it doesn't make waves.
Plain junk. Blink codes won’t clear. Bearing constant adjustments. By Ed wicks on 5/18/2018Ed wicks wouldn't recommend this product to a friendPlain junk. More repairs than use
Great! By Darryl on 4/27/2018Darryl would recommend this product to a friendHave this in my 75 and it works GREAT!
Bought 2 more have them in my 210.
Tunze makes a great product!
Worth the investment By Tim on 3/29/2018Tim would recommend this product to a friendExtremely quiet and well built. Versatile. Can produce different pulses, waves, and currents. It can really can move the water, but is easy to control. Fish and corals are much healthier. Keeps tank cleaner and less algae.
Love this Pump By jovahn on 3/15/2018jovahn would recommend this product to a friendi have 2 of these on my 125 very quite and easy to clean
Super Quiet and Really Moves The Water By Chrismot on 1/12/2018Chrismot would recommend this product to a friendBought two of these from BRS before Christmas. Quality is very good and they make no noise whatsoever. They are rather big but after moving some rock around in the back you can barely see them. I have two running off my Neptune and they can really move the water in my 225 gallon tank. Plus a 5 year warranty!!!
Powerful, versatile, and the last pump you will ever need to buy By Tom on 11/20/2017Tom would recommend this product to a friendThe first aquarium pump with an axial magnetic bearing, with no surface contact, the only noise is that created by hydrodynamic forces of the water moving. So far the pump is quiet. I have only one installed in my Red Sea E170 reef tank. It's a versatile pump with variable speed DC motor, I have no issue in my little 37 gallons reef tank. 5 years warranty is unheard of!!
Instead of the conventional hall sensors used in most DC pumps, Tunze utilizes BEMF, back electromotive force, to control the pump. The cooling is accomplished by drawing a large amount of water through the pump from a bottom strainer and a sophisticated driver system automatically back flushes the pump once a day. An LED display which is normally invisible on the pump indicates issues with the motor and also can give a countdown of how long the pump has been in use.
Powerful, quiet, and a real warranty By Jason on 11/20/2017Jason would recommend this product to a friendTunze has raised the bar with these pumps. They move a ton of water, enough so that I still need to tweak placement and power even with sand that is not fine. They're dead silent. If I didn't see the prop turning I wouldn't know they were on. And finally, a real warranty to give us peace of mind when spending this much on a power head. I have 2 in a 220 both set center of the back wall providing a dual gyre like flow that wraps around each end, meets in the middle, and rotates back towards the back wall. The only con is that they are large but that's a minor quibble given the performance and warranty they come with.
Tough as a boot...looks like one in your tank By Ryan on 7/6/2017Ryan would recommend this product to a friendI needed a pump to work opposite a maxspect gyre 250 because a corner overflow doesn't leave enough room for another gyre. Tunze's history of great products, my experience with magnetic levitation in other products, and the whopping 5-YEAR warranty are why I chose the Stream 3. Programming is pretty easy with the 7090 controller included, though if you want to pulse the pump for shorter than 2 seconds, you have to use the "auto adjust" feature which is a lot like deciding which shade of red you like with 150 choices streamed by in 10 seconds. (Don't like the one you picked? Start over from the top) I was able to create nice waves with it eventually.
If you're like me and you can sacrifice sleekness and small footprints in exchange for something as tough as (and about as big as) a tank, this pumps for you. Though one potential weak spot is the motor cooling intake opposite the impeller which Tunze warns not to get closer than 5cm from sand as it can clog. I plan on cleaning this intake often as Heat+magnets = paperweight.
Go ahead and plan to move some rock around to accommodate and hide it. If you plan on using the 90 degree diffuser, add another 2" of length to it. (Really)
So far, the pump does exactly what I need it to do pretty quietly. I managed to fit it horizontally into a 75 gallon without too much trouble .
