These days when we hear the brand Maxspect our minds quickly picture the ever so thin R420R (Razor) LED fixtures. Today Coralvue announced the release of a new product by Maxspect in the water flow realm, the Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator.
Based on the footprint I’m not convinced this would be a great addition to most large display tanks based on aesthetics alone, but holy frag tank… perfect flow from one device. From the initial pictures they’ll be releasing four sizes to best suit your needs. Coming in hot Summer of this year. More information from Coralvue.
Cool but what does it do.
it is a power head, “shut up and take my money” i want this like 2 weeks ago
Correct… a powerhead alternative, if you will.
I did find out that the actual model released will be easier to hide than I initially thought, per Chris Conti of CoralVue, “The Riptide will be made in transparent plastic with a hazed finished so it’ll look translucent when submerged underwater. The rotors will also be using transparent plastic, which isn’t showing up that nicely in the rendered CAD image.”
