Better surface agitation with adjustable-direction flow

Penguin PowerHeads deliver constant flow with fully adjustable aeration direction and increased surface agitation...and they remain silent at all times.

The custom air valve regulates air flow, the air filter eliminates noise and dust, and the intake strainer keeps debris from fouling the impeller...that's efficiency.

New longer 10 ft power cord makes placement easy.

  • Penguin Power Heads Features:
  • Heavy duty construction.
  • Safe for both salt and freshwater aquariums.
  • Adjustable aeration valve and directional flow.
  • Debris strainer traps particulates to keep from fouling the impeller. (Model MD86608 has open-cell pre-filter sponge.)
  • Constructed with a single moving part. No maintenance or oil.
  • Mounts anywhere with suction cup or bracket.
  • 10 ft power cord.
  • Approximately 4 in high
  • Three Sizes: 145 gph, 170 gph, and 300 gph.

MD86608 (170 gph) has reverse flow capabilities to send oxygenated water deep into the gravel bed. Has reusable, slide-off sponge pre-filter. When used in the normal fashion with an undergravel filter, the sponge expands the bacteria bed and provides an additional biological filter.

High performance pump/powerhead, yet priced for the hobbyist.

Water Circulation is important to a healthy closed aquatic environment. Without it, the system can become unstable, leading to the growth of algae and other unhealthy substances. This is true for both freshwater and saltwater.

The most efficient way to move the water is by using a pump and/or powerhead.

Designed with next generation magnetic-rotor technology, the Rio® Plus Aqua Pumps and Powerheads offer the best high-performance solution in the aquarium industry. The ceramic shaft and durable high-impact plastic make the pump reliable and long lasting. Magnetic rotor technology offers low maintenance and high reliability. And, although the Rio Plus delivers a high flow rate with tremendous pressure capability, it is quiet to operate.

The largest and most powerful models provide excellent performance within wet or dry filters and in venturi protein skimmers when high pressure and flow rates are needed. Reliable and quiet, Rio® Plus Aqua Pumps and Powerheads do not use oil to operate so they cannot contaminate the aquatic environment

Other features of the Rio® Plus Aqua Pump and optional Powerhead include energy efficiency, low-heat operation and a flow rate intended to keep electric bills low.

The fully submersible Rio® can be used in both freshwater and saltwater.
