New pumps to test: the UltraReef Devil D2000 and D3000


I just got two new pumps to test by Ultra Reef, a new italian company for aquarium market, but a company that manufactures pumps since 1957.

The pumps that will be tested are the two smallest of the new range of Ultra Reef. Denominated Devil, because of the bright Ferrari red color, they exist in three versions: D2000, D3000 and D4000.

We had to test the D2000 and D3000, of which we give the technical specifications:

Pump Ultra Reef Devil D2000:

Consumption: 20 watt
Pump output (at zero head): 2050 L/H
Delivery head (at zero pump output): 2,0 meters

Pump Ultra Reef Devil D3000:

Consumption: 40 watt
Pump output (at zero head): 3000 L/H
Delivery head (at zero pump output): 4,0 meters

Especially the second pump could be a good return pump, also thanks to its small dimensions.

We’ll have a test of the two pumps as soon as we can.

Tunze Turbelle Stream 6105 – The Complete Review


The Tunze Stream Turbelle 6105 can be considered as the main product of the lineup of the Tunze pumps. This is because they can be used in aquariums from 300 to 400 liters, which are the ones most advanced aquarist chose to use today. These are those aquariums that are larger than a nanoreef but smaller than a 500 lt.

In this way they can still provide a decent catchment area, especially if we consider that 120cm aquariums of length are the ones which have the best ratio among quality/price/performance for keeping sps corals, which is reason why aquarist buy these pumps.
