  The key to a healthy closed aquatic environment is circulated fresh or salt water. The high-performance, self-rotating, variable speed Rio® Motion circulates water, ensuring the stability of all systems by:
    • Increasing the exposed plant and animal surface area coming into contact with the light.
    • Eliminating areas of stagnant water.
    • Increasing the gas-exchange ratio.
    • Creating a randomly generated water motion, closely mimicking a natural surge pattern.
    • Stimulating growth by carrying nutrients to corals and plants.
    • Improving the ability of bateria to convert ammonia to nitrite and then to nitrate.
    • Providing necessary water movement for all corals and anemones.
    • Encouraging inhabitants to display their natural behavior.
    • Eliminating the use of complicated wave makers decreasing expenses.
    • Providing constant water flow, increasing pump life.Providing required turbulance for
      aiding in detritus removal.
    • Aiding in decreasing unwanted algae.
    • Providing maximum circulation and water motion.
      The Rio® motion is ideal for use in saltwater reef tanks, fresh and saltwater aquariums , and ponds with plants and fish requiring water surge. In addition, fish thrive in an environment with a constantly changing water flow.
       Vary your water current without any motors or gears. Rio® motion’s unique design changes the direction of the water discharging in 360°. These units will adapt directly to Rio® water pumps or can be connected to ½in or ¾in pvc tubing. Will work with flow rates from
200 GPH to 2000 GPH
