    Was considering the 3K, now in waiting mode. Also very interested in what the "Lux" tanks will be.

    Talked to them at reefApalooza California the other day. They said that they were aiming for a release in December.

    Awesome! Just in time for Christmas. Had a feeling that would be the case.

    I am about a month away from finally setting up a reef after years away from marine tanks. The timing is just about perfect.

    Thank you for the information!

    I actually just stumbled on this a little bit ago accidentally and figured why not. im looking to replace a pair of rw-4s in my IM25 lagoon. hoping this will do the trick.
    now if only there was a solid release date.

    Just ordered ours. The 2k gyre and reef glue cost us 102 dollars with rewards points. Thanks @MarineDepot. This should work well with 3k gyre in the reef tank.

    if true that's raising some questions for me. as the glamorca is showing on Canadian retailers as having a max flow of 951gph as shown here. are we sure its the exact same? also shown with the old style control box instead of the new one.
    http://www.reefsupplies.ca/online-store/Glamorca-GP02-Gyre-Flow-Pump-licenced-by-Maxspect.html

    as opposed to the 2000gph as mentioned in the original reefbreeders article, now I am starting to feel slightly nervous.
    unless that is just a gp03 logo on the box and a stand in product photo. I really cant tell

    I got an email saying it was on backorder. Weird. Did you have other items in your order? Are you sure all shipped?

    Cool. My research shows it maxed at 2,000 GPH. The 3K was 3,000 GPH, so I would assume that descriptive naming convention follows. I will say that it was a little weird preordering without all of the data available, but it seemed obvious what the basics were.

    I mentioned earlier it looked about 8 inches, but upon reflection of the image I saw next to the 3k, and some crude measuring, I now estimate about 9-9.5 inches. If you get yours let us know!
