After years of making waves in the aquarium industry, Sea Swirls are finally available in a 1.5″ model. These oscillating wave making devices are designed for aquariums 180-gallons and up, ideally paired with Reeflo pumps like the Snapper, Dart, Barracuda or Hammerhead. Unlike previous models, the 1.5″ Sea Swirl must be hard plumbed, which is actually my plumbing method of choice for just about any application. This Sea Swirl also comes with a 2″ outlet, allowing for your oscillating flow to be more widespread and gentle. The unit consumes a minuscule 3watts and is capable of handling up to 5800gph of water flow. And though this wave maker is fairly large, it actually has the tiniest in-tank footprint (approximately 2.25″) of any water pump or wavemaker on the market. This is achieved of course by having a majority of the device mounted externally on the top of the aquarium. The 1.5″ Sea Swirls are currently available at the price of $390.
