    So I recently set up a maxspect gyre XF250 which came with controller for my 180, question is does anyone know if the controller would work on an XF230 as well? I know it can control 2 units but I’m unaware of there are any difference with the 230 and 250’s. Reason I’m wondering is because even with the 250 I’ve noticed a couple areas that aren’t getting much flow and started noticing cyano growth.

    Gyre Pump Considerations

    I am looking at the available Gyre Pumps on the market and I'm not sure how to size the right one (or two?) and whether I should consider different brands... Q1: What size or model should be used in a 200g tank (48x36x27) with mostly SPS? It seems that sizing by GPH is not necessary the right way...and maybe placement and orientation are important. Q2: Should I use one large Gyre or two smaller ones? Assume no budget worries and tell me why I need 10 if there is a good case. Q3: It looks like Maxspect is the most common and appears to be of high quality. Are there others worth considering? Q4: Should I connect the Gyre(s) to my Apex controller (or is it even possible)? Q5: It seems like Gyres are great, but should I really be thinking about replacing flow equipment with these or should these just be add-ons?

    Who do you root for, Maxspect or Apex?

    I can't decide, so I need your help. Maxspect Gyre XF 250 with controller and second pump $500 Neptune System Apex WAVs with 1Link $500 This would be for a SPS heavy mixed reef tank, 120 gallons. Circulation, appearance, control? Is the second pump really needed?
