The spectacular new pumps by Abyzz and a special mangrove swamp at the Interzoo 2022
Abyzz had a beautiful booth with their wonderful pumps and some aquariums on show, among which there were a very particular one.

The booth was shared with ITC ReefCulture, of which we’re going to talk in a dedicated article. For now, let’s just focus on Abyzz and the special aquarium on show! It was closed on top with slanting glass. There wasn’t any trick! The level was in the rear part of the aquarium, which was elevated. I called it mangrove swamp, maybe incorrectly, but it seemed the more fitting definition. But it surely represented a lagoon without corals: it had big seaweeds and Anemone and beautiful fish that we’re not used to see in a reef aquarium. Very beautiful and spectacular!
So, before we go on, we leave you to our video about Abyzz‘s booth at the Interzoo 2022 so that you can see the aquarium, even though the clip is quite short.
Abyzz’s booth at the Interzoo 2022 in our video
Before you go on, we leave you to our video so that you can see the booth not only in picture. Clicking on the link you’ll be directly sent to the part about Abyzz, but you can also watch the rest. The video is in Italian, you only have to turn the English subs on! Enjoy!
Let’s continue with some photos of the aquarium!
Here you can see the peculiar shape of the aquarium. It’s inspiring! It forces us to do something like that. We really liked it.
Another particular aquarium, always at Abyzz’s booth, was this small minireef with a very thick glass. Another unusual set up.
But let’s talk about pumps!
There were on show the new pumps of the A series. We’re talking about A100, A200 and A400 that you can see below. Three incredible pumps, extremely powerful and reliable. Moreover, they can all be connected to an Apex computer and controlled with that.
Also, they surely don’t go unnoticed for their price. But those who chose Abyzz are awarded by their reliability. But let’s see the technical characteristics in comparison.
|Abyzz A100||Abyzz A200||Abyzz A400|
|Rate||8.500 l/h||17.000 l/h||23.500 l/h|
|Head||6 m||8,8 m||12,5 m|
|Power consumption||100 w||200 w||400 w|
|Price||1.279,00 €||1.599,00 €||2.199,00 €|
|Efficiency||85 l/h per w||85 l/h per w||58,75 l/h per w|
|Economic efficiency||6,6 l/h per €||10,6 l/h per €||10,7 l/h per €|
The pumps are controlled through their own controller but, as we said, you can purchase apart the module to connect them to Apex.
The new titanium motion pump
The new motion pump Abyzz Flow Cannon AFC150 is built in grade 2 titanium and high quality plastics. The shell and the propeller are in titanium, the blades in plastic. The maximum rate is 60.000 liters/hour and the blades do 264 spins per minute, even if at Abyzz‘s they indicate 54.000 l/h of rate and “only” 238 spins per minute. We foretell that the price isn’t for everyone!
Technical characteristics of the Abyzz Flow Cannon AFC150
- Submerged mounting only, minimum operating depth: 40 cm
- Flow (in operation) : 54.000l/h (238gpm)
- Maximum flow: 60.000l/h (264gpm)
- Power consumption: 4-150W
- Maximum depth of use: 2.5m
- Cable length: 3m
- Price: 2.449 euro
- Maximum efficiency (lxw): 400 liters per watt
- Economic efficiency (lxeuro): 24,5 liters per euro
Let’s say that the pump doesn’t stand out for the economic efficiency, that means you’re going to pay for all this great rate, but the technical efficiency is spectular, and such a rate isn’t within reach of all pumps.
