Unboxed: Sicce X Stream E Compact Wave Pump

With a global reputation for quality, Sicce products represent the culmination of over 40 years’ experience in the industry. Based on innovative research and advanced technology, their pumps are highly regarded, being incorporated into many systems, either in stand-alone application, or as parts of other devices. In this unboxing review, we take a look at the latest offering from their aquarium division, the X Stream E compact wave pump. Actually, Sicce have made our job rather easy here with their own promotional video which gives a really good overview of the new pump. Although we will be bringing your our own operational review in due course, the video covers the key features and shows in-tank operation also. We suggest you watch the video. [embedded content] In terms of our initial thoughts, we were very happy with the packaging and presentation of this pump.

The Sicce XStream-E Variable Flow Pumps

2015_01_pompe_sicce_xstream-e_03Sicce unveiled a new variable flow pump, the Sicce XStreamE, at Nuremberg Interzoo, and it looks great. Sicce XStreamE is very compact, though it is larger than the Sicce Voyager Nano 1000 and 2000 (reviewed here in italian, and soon in english on Reefs.com). However, the declared flow is impressive – ranging from a minimum of 3,000 to a maximum of 8,500 l/h. These pumps are most suitable for a nanoreef tank up to 300 liters, but I will be testing them in a 3,400 liter tank to see if it’s possible to maintain a medium tank with a couple of Sicce XStreamE. They would also be excellent pumps for… More:

Sicce Announces Remote Controlled Xstream-e Series Pumps

Interzoo seemed to be a launching pad for many new and somewhat unusual water pumps this year, with Sicce also getting in on the action. They didn’t do anything unusual in terms of some radical design, but instead have incorporated some of the best technology a pump could ever use…wireless capabilities. The brand new Sicce Xstream-e series pumps have the same look and feel as other prop-based pumps, most notably the Sicce Stream Nano models, but they now incorporate a wireless remote control that allows users to crank up the flow or dial it back without ever having to walk over to the aquarium. The controller does more than just turn the flow up or down, however, as it is also multifunctional. The controller can set the pump to a short 10 second pulse, a longer 30 second pulse, and even longer minute long pulse. Additionally, the pump can be set in a random flow cycle or set to bypass mode for other controller input. As for the flow rates themselves, the Xstream-e will only be available in one model, but it will have an adjustable rate ranging from 3,000 to 8,000 l/h. We fully expect this year and next to see loads of developments for wireless water pumps.

Sicce Targeting Small Aquariums with Voyager Nano Pumps

The aquarium hobby is teeming with all sorts of water pumps, with most of the industry’s best focusing on medium to large sized aquariums. There is a healthy offering for the smaller side of the hobby, and that segment is about to get a little more crowded. Sicce, the Italian creator of plenty of popular aquarium items, is now offering up a nano model of their crowd favorite Voyager pump. Aptly called the Voyager Nano, this pump comes in two different models, which both have an incredibly small size with a total length around 6.5 cm (barely over 2.5 inches). The flow rates for each model are 1000 and 2000 liters per hour (approximately 263 and 526 gph, respectively). Another interesting feature, which isn’t unique to the Voyager Nano but can be found on all of the newer Voyager models, is an automatic cleaning and lubricating system of the impeller chamber. In addition to keeping the motor and impeller clean and free of bubbles, the system also keeps the motor block cool, prolonging its life. This is especially important for those times when the pumps are being used on pulsing wave makers. In addition to the aforementioned features, the Voyager Nano also includes a vibration absorbing magnet mount, which is capable of handling glass thicknesses up to 12mm. The magnetic support also gives the pump a rotation of 360°, letting nano aquarists get the flow wherever they need it

Sicce Shows Off Their HyperKoral and Calanus Feeding System

Back in May, the American arm of the Italian aquarium product company, Sicce, announced a new reef feeding program. The lineup consists of just two products, called Sicce HyperKoral and Sicce Calanus, but they promised to be a complete dosing system to meet all of your corals’ needs. When dosed hand in hand with each other, they target LPS, SPS, soft corals, and other filter feeders. While at MACNA, we got to see these two coral foods in the flesh, while also getting a full rundown of what they bring to the proverbial dinner table. Below is a summation of what each product accomplishes. HyperKoral is a product that delivers purified L-amino acids, vitamins, and carbohydrates to your corals in a liquid substrate. These components are said to be in concentrations that mimic what is found on wild coral reefs, and because of their chemical makeup, they are not removed via protein skimming
