View Full Version : Question about the Tunze

I never own and don't know anything about the Tunze. Does it generate more than laminar flow? Right now, I have two giant power heads that generate 2600 gph each and some smaller one in my main tank. I like the giant power head more so than the smaller one since it has much large nozzle that seem to push water out instead of shooting out jet stream of water. I want to create turbulent and surge flow. Will Tunze help to create the turbulent or even surge flow?

Hi Reef1973,

The answer to you question is YES. Theres plenty of technical information on the Tunze site that will help you understand how they differ from normal Powerheads.

With the new 6300 you'll have pretty much unlimited volumes of flow.

I agree. There are 3 things I like about the Streams pumps. 1) They are silent 2) they are power misers and 3) the flow is very spread out. In fact, it seems like much of the flow is caused by the INTAKE part of the pump.
