In addition, the rotating motion breaks down the surface film of dead bacteria which can inhibit oxygen exchange. All models feature a Venturi aerating system, adjustable flow rates and all mounting accessories. In addition, the Powersweep is great for use as a wave maker in marine tanks. Only at PetSmart.

Zoo Med™ PowerSweep 160 Aquarium Wavemaker is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Godd for the money. For a 36b gallon tank, it is perfect. Even though the air intake tube doesn't work, it still had good water flow. I hooked up a small air pump to the intake and now it adds plenty of oxegyn to my tank. I am going to get another on for the other tube tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well. I have have been using the 228 model for about three weeks and is well worth the money. The first few hours I used the included air line, then added a check valve to try and block the water from rising in the tube. The next day I ran a line from my air pump to the check valve and into the unit. With an air pump running it, this unit pushes a light wave of water full of air bubbles in my 55 gallon tank. I have the unit in the back corner of the tank and the wave of air bubbles reaches mid tank. I would recommend this unit to a friend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Under powered and no air circulation This product is not good at all. Not only is under powered, but it doesn't create any air bubbles at all. Yes it is made well and moves back and forth, but it is underpowered and creates more noise in my tank than the external pump i am using. I dont recommend this to anyone. Pick another brand. Now I know why this is the cheapest power head.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dont buy this unless you have a nano tank In my opinion this product would be great for a small nano under 10 gallons but it is way too big to put in a tank that small. I got this for my 46 gallon reef aquarium and it had no movement at all. Its also so big for what it actually is...a powerhead. I switched to the penguin powerhead and purchased a Koralia rotater and it is so much better. Moves the water in a circle rather then just back and forth. The rotators can also go on any size depending on your tank size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Powersweep 214 Bought the 214 today. Simple to install and use. Output is kinda low. Put my hand in front of the sweeping output and could not feel the current flow beyond about 2". Also the air hose and diffuser are useless, does not have enough output to draw air down the hose, you can see the water pulsing up and down in the air hose (and yes the output adjustment was turned up to full). Going to return it and try the 228 model instead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Performance is overstated on packaging I returned this item because it failed to move a sufficient quantity of water in my 29 gallon euro tank. I am trying to recreate an amazonian habitat for my six pygocentrus ternetzi's and the water movement was minimal at best. This product would be perfect in an aquarium up to 15-20 gallons,the sweep motion is superb. It just doesn't have enough power to reproduce a strong undercurrent as found in the amazon. I must say that the build quality and reliability is fantastic, just use it in a smaller tank:)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad I like how it rotates back and forth. Wish it was only one suction cup but it works great.

Can this item be used in a 10 gallon aquarium?

Asked by: Penguin1026
It is intended for 20-30 gal so I would assume that it would be too powerful for 10gal.
