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.
As mentioned in the article in August, the cost increase of neodymium has a negative impact on aquarium.
Nevertheless Tunze freezes the prices reducing the magnetic holder.
TURBELLE STREAM 6125 — had a “magnetic holder” up to 0.98 inches, now reduced for thick glasses up to 0.59 inches.
For example, the pumps 6025-6045-6055-6105 were provided with a magnet that held a thickness up to 0.75 inches;
in most cases the magnet was oversized, so Tunze adapts the pumps according to their use, as follows:
6025-6045 had a magnet for glass tickness 0.75 inches; now it’s reduced with one up to 0.47 inches;
6055-6105 had a magnet for 0.75 inches; now it’s reduced with one up to 0.59 inches.
However, if the customer had special needs, he could buy the suitable magnet holder separately.

Come anticipato nell’articolo di Agosto sull’aumento dei costi del neodimio, iniziano ad arrivare le prime conseguenze negative anche in campo acquariofilo.
Avevamo predetto un aumento dei costi dei magneti, ma Tunze ha optato per una riduzione della loro portata di modo da contenerne i costi.
Turbelle Stream 6125 montava un magnet holder fino a 25mm ora ridotto per vetri spessi fino a 15 mm.
