The Maxspect Gyre XF130 has been made for smaller nano tanks and now with the XF130 End Cap you can safely cut the size of the pump almost in half, while reducing flow for smaller nano tanks. By simply removing one propeller blade assembly and replacing it with the XF130 End Cap will allow you to keep the amazing cross-flow pattern that the Gyre pump generates, while obtaining a smaller footprint for the pump.
Maxspect has revolutionized the powerhead with the Gyre line of pumps. By thinking out of the box and making a pump that has a cross-flow pattern allows for virtually no dead spots within the aquarium while producing high amounts of linear flow with minimum power consumption.
Now the XF130 can be utilized on smaller tanks that would normally be too small for a Gyre pump. The End Cap will replace either of the two propeller blades making the dual blade Gyre XF130, into a single blade pump. Having just a single propeller greatly reduces the overall size of the Gyre pump, while lowering the maximum amount of flow it will be able to produce as well. For smaller tanks the XF130 is more flow than most tanks will need, and by using the end cap you can personalize your pump for your tanks particular flow needs.
Will this work on the xf230 as well?
This may fit on the XF230, however the 200 series Gyres come with a cap specifically for them. :-)
