The Tunze Nanostream 6015 may not be any smaller than it’s 6025 and 6045 counterparts but it’s specs and price will surely make some big waves in the small propeller water pump category. Although the previous Nanostreams had a great price to performance ratio, these were still a higher cost pump which are still too large and strong for the increasingly petite nano reef tank hobbyist. Although the Nanostream 6015 pushes an impressive 475gph/1800lph while drawing only 3.5 watts, it’s that mainstream $45 retail price point which should give the nano evo Korallias some fair competition on the shelves of the LFS. As with all new interzoo products, the Nanostream 6015 we spied in the Tunze booth was a prototype and we should be seeing these stateside in 1-2 months.
