  • Output Flow Control, 6 adjustable levels and 1 MAX flow setting
  • Constant Flow Rate, when set at one of the 6 adjustable levels, the electronic controls monitor the flow rate and adjust the output to maintain a constant flow rate.
  • Bio Stream function, will alternate two different flow levels for wave function providing a more natural environment
  • 12 hour Bio function, will alternate two different flow rates in 12 hour cycles. For Planted Aquariums, we recommend having a higher flow rate at night to help oxygenate the water.
