The 1.5" Sea Swirl Model satisfies the need for an oscillating device for large aquariums to create a broad oscillating current, not linear current like our competitors at an economical price and it is very energy efficient too!
Using our customer's request's and needs for a higher flow product for over 4 years now, we have developed and tested the 1.5" SS Model with great success.
The 1.5" Model was designed for tanks 180 gals. and up and offers the truly smallest footprint area seen in the aquarium of only 2-1/4"
The 1.5" Sea Swirl is to be used with the Low Wattage/ High Flow pumps such as ReeFlo Snapper, Dart, Barracuda and Hammerhead along with many of the Dolphin line of aquarium pumps that people use to return water to their tank. When using the 1.5" model it is to be hard-plumbed only!
Also, with the optional 2" outlet the 1.5" Sea Swirl will produce exceptionally wide gentle circulation.
Two units mounted in opposite corners(front/rear) in the aquarium would cover every area of the tank with "swaying" motion which is seen in nature. This motion is not fast like some of the products on the market, but will produce a strong "wave-crashing" motion then a very calm current will follow as the Sea Swirl oscillates.
As corals grow into high current areas in the aquarium if the current is Linear the corals will tend to shed tissue and possibly even perish, grow around the linear/pulsed current or stop growing all together to avoid the straight line current. Check out the Penn State video with Dr. Sanjay Joshi on our home page! Not so with oscillating current as it is always changing from strong to calm, just like the natural current pattern in the ocean.
