In 2006, TUNZE® developed the “nanostream®” concept. The Turbelle® nanostream® is a compact propeller pump for nano and medium-sized aquariums, and able to convince through its organic ball-shaped design, as well as a 3D current flow which is adjustable in every direction without additional accessories. The pump contains a very large intake strainer for the sucked in water, which helps prevent a premature pollution.
This innovative circulation pump set a new record when it was launched onto the market: with a diameter of only 70 mm (2.7”) it enables a water flow of 4,500 l/h (1,189 USgal./h) with an energy consumption of only 5 W (18 W and 5,500 l/h (1,452 USgal./h)) for the electronic version. As the first pump of its kind on the market it was also supplied with a magnet holder, which enables an easy attachment at any position on the aquarium glass pane with a thickness up to 19 mm (¾”).
