Accela Submersible Powerhead (215gph) InformationJBJ introduces the extremely efficient Accela Submersible Powerhead (215gph). This submersible pump is ideal for use under gravel filters and provides water circulation within fresh or saltwater aquariums. Accela powerhead motors are epoxy-sealed and designed for consistent power with low energy draw. All kits include an adjustable venturi injector, under gravel attachment tube, flow diffuser flap, suction cup bracket, and mounting hook.
FeaturesOffered in 4 sizes ranging from 166gph - 266gph. All models are UL listed and are thermally protected for safe operation WaveMaker (Ocean Pulse) Approved In nature, water circulation is vital for corals, fish, and invertebrates in order to achieve optimal health. Providing the proper water movement is essential for many tank inhabitants who require currents to bring food and oxygen, and remove harmful waste. Setting multiple powerheads can simulate natural currents while eliminating dead spots in aquariums. Positioning powerheads lower/higher can also allow for more natural wave cycles by producing counter currents. It is important to research what flow rates are required for specific tank mates before replicating their environment. It is recommended to position powerheads to direct detritus and waste into the intake of filters. This small step will ensure a healthy and clean aquarium with no areas with high accumulation. Pivoting the directional flow diffuser towards the surface will also reap great benefits by allowing for proper gas exchange between the CO2 gas saturated within the water and the oxygen above its surface. This will help maintain a proper pH for more stable water parameters. Specifications:
