Massive water movement solution for large aquarium displays. Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator XF-280 is the big bother of the popular Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator Models XF-130 and XF-150 delivering an impressive 6,000 gph flow rate! Innovative, elongated paddle-wheel design generates a broad, powerful stream for massive water movement throughout the entire aquarium for effective elimination of low-flow dead spots in your aquarium!

Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator XF-280 produces powerful shear water-flow that travels the entire length of the aquarium. Once traveling from one side of the aquarium to the other, the water flow bounces back, travelling near the bottom of the aquarium producing a circular gyre flow that leaves little to no dead spots in its wake.

The Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator XF-280 can be installed horizontally or vertically to suit your water movement needs. Magnetic mounting system allows quick and convenient installation. Great for reef aquariums and any system requiring comprehensive water movement.
