Sea Swirl

Oscillates the return from your existing pump or canister filter 90 degrees every 60 seconds or the 1/2" and 3/4" models have 180 Degree oscillating capability with the optional "Y" fitting. Sea Swirls are not submersible but hang on the lip of your tank. All Sea Swirls units now have adjustable inlet for easier positioning of incoming water line and are supplied with a black FPT x FPT inlet filling for hard plumbing with PVC and a barb fitting is included for hose connections.

Sea Swirls eliminate the need of wave makers and power heads and greatly improves circulation in your tank while helping to eliminate "Dead Spots". Unlike other units, operates with any pressure, nothing to hide and cannot clog. No more unidirectional flow. Natural wave motion sweeps away excess mucus and waste products from rock and corals. Improved circulation-stimulates growth and carries nutrients to corals and plants while discouraging growth of unwanted algae.

Attaches to top frame of all standard glass aquariums (optional brackets available for acrylic tanks if needed). Supplied with adjustable black outlet fittings on 1/2" and 3/4" models (approximately 30 degrees). Outer oscillating pipe is machined for standard schedule 40 fittings. Maintenance free with a 9 foot electric cord and 1 year warranty
