    Very cool addition to the Sequence line of Pumps. Now you can get a needle wheel version of the Dart and Barracuda. Now to find a Skimmer to handle the POWER.

    Introducing the ReefFlo Orca Needle Wheel Pump. This is basically a ReefFlo Dart that has a modified needle wheel impeller and heavy duty venturi.

    Picture is shown with the impeller housing removed, so you can see the MASSIVE needle impeller. We will have technical specs soon.
    Check out the video

    What a cute little pump... :eek:

    So it is finally out. I can't wait to see the specs. I wonder how fragile the impeller is? I think I'd run a prefilter in front of the intake. I think I saw the initial retail price coming in at $270ish. Not bad for a bruiser like that.

    And yes, the skimmer have to be a monster!;D
