Hi, that place in galway is now closed down :( . I don't know if anywhere else sells them, in ireland.
I did get to see one working,it looked very impressive. As for the cost of them, you would have to buy a lot of power heads and controllers to get the same amount of water movement.

Jebao have just announced there gyre to be released and probably half the price of maxspect would be worth a try and it is identical looking and flow rates to the maxspect to only time will tell but be cheaper option to try

Read thru here and read a few more threads
Looks good to me! I might hold off and see how they work out....
Jeboa have a tendency to last only 12 or 15 months then seem to die off

Has anyone got one of these yet

I'm tempted but have a funny feeling my lps will be all blowing to one side

I got two, well 1 gyre and 1 jebao pending arrival next month.

The gyre is excellent! I have been experimenting with it on my new tank (empty at the moment) and it is perfectly capable of moving water on a 6ft tank at 40-50% of the power if placed on a horizontal position. At 40-50% it makes literally no noise whatsoever hence another reason why I am using two!

However, I am placing them vertically on the back, this is so I can hide it from view and to ensure I dont have deadspots on the back of the aquarium. I am getting my rocks hand built and the guys I am buying them from can create rock work and hide the powerhead in it so I will be placing 2 of them one on each side in a similar position as below.

I was concerned on how much water they can move and how much water agitation the can create if placed vertically (I knew they could create a lot of water agitation if placed horizontally) so I decided to fill the tank up with tap water and test it.

See below



At 40% it creates quite a bit of water movement as I can see my temp probe move quite a bit on the other side of the tank, also, I have no dead spots on the surface on approx 50-60% of the tank, the rest of the surface just gets a gentle blow. See how there are no bubbles on the bottom of the tank on around 60% of the surface.

File Attachment:


In general it seems that the flow is more gentle and not directional allowing you to put corals almost right in front of the pump!

At 100% the water flow is quite high and surface agitation is excellent



File Attachment:


But I suspect it would blow too much sand, however, I know for some sand at the bottom will not be a problem ;)

Unfortunately I cannot tell you how LPS or softies will do because I have nothing on that tank, however, from other peoples experience it seems that the flow is quite gentle, but all over the aquarium, which sounds perfect to me, I will keep you posted. Tank should be running with some LPS in it by mid next month hopefully!

Thanks Alex it definitely sounds good and looks good but like u said and I think it can really only be seen to be believed when the likes of lps are scattered around the hole tank
Ur elegance will be the main test, don't want to piss the cracker off, if u can place that anywhere the pumps are a 100% winner
Be very interesting to see and hear how it fairs out
I really am on the dark side about these so looking forward to hearing from chris and yourself with the end result
Cheers bud, very nice tank by the way

I am pretty sure it will be fine, I have been watching the flow patterns on my (empty) tank and it doesnt seem to be very strong, it just moves a lot of water everywhere in the tank.

I can see this by looking at the particles floating inside the tank. Even when the cross right in front of the tank they are not blown away in the same way they would if it was a similar flow powerhead such as tunze etc.

I have also seen videos of people using this powerhead with a combination of softies/LPS and SPS and none of them seem to suffer from excessive flow/current

Anyway it shouldn't be long until I have mine ready!

Hi,
Any feedback after that term of Gyre use ?
How is the water movement with rocks?
Thanks.
