Maxspect pumps are a subsidiary of CoralVue Aquarium Products, one of the longest standing and most reliable names in the aquarium industry. When using a gyre pump properly it leads to nearly zero dead spots in a tank, and a much more efficient means of recreating a natural reef environment. Simply put the term "gyre" means a circular or spiral motion or form, especially a circular oceanic current. The word "gyre" however is not exclusive to any one brand. It is a definition, not a name brand. There are several other brands such as Jebao that use gyre water movement to create amazing circulation throughout any aquarium. At AquariumSumps.com we use the Jebao CP-55 Crossflow pumps on a number of coral tanks. One other benefit of the Jebao pumps is they are usually less than half the price.
