For 60 years, progress has a name for aquarists: TUNZE®, a successful family business in the third generation, whose philosophy and vision of the aquarium as a researched biotope has produced a distinctive range of high-quality, long-lasting, environmentally friendly and energy-saving products that enjoy worldwide reputation and trust. With TUNZE® know-how dreams are fulfilled, reliable safety in terms of quality and service is guaranteed, state-of-the-art production processes are developed.


Combining technological excellence and emotional values in a specific design language ever since, the current challenge for TUNZE® is the fine balance between quality and environmental friendliness, as energy isn’t for free and affects the environment. TUNZE® pumps are constantly being developed to set new records in the power consumption sector. This means minimal heat dissipation in the water at constant reliability. Even internal production processes are consistently aligned with environmental criteria. In order to reduce CO2 emissions and optimize energy efficiency, it is a priority to minimize electricity consumption.


Even after a 60 years company history, TUNZE® has remained a down-to-earth, medium-sized enterprise with currently about 50 employees located in Penzberg, Upper Bavaria, and a widely spread network of distribution partners around the world. Axel Tunze, the son of the founder Norbert Tunze and his firstborn son Felix are currently the managing directors and the core of the company. By their team of mostly long-term employees, they receive a lot of support in this strongly fluctuating industry in order to maintain their down-to-earth attitude.


What is a product without good service? TUNZE® makes sure that service goes beyond sale. As one of the first aquaristic companies, from 1998 onwards, TUNZE® presented itself on the internet on and took advantage of new sales and service opportunities for its customers. Since then, aquarists all around the world have been able to access the whole range of products, instructions, videos, etc, and order all available spare parts at short notice via the online shop in direct sales. TUNZE® is also well-known for its straightforward and quick service on its telephone hotline or via email. The close network of long-standing and constantly added wholesalers, retailers and online dealers deliver TUNZE® products to their customers quickly and reliably.


The TUNZE® product range covers all technical sophistication an aquarist’s heart desires: the unique, inimitable but yet often copied Turbelle® stream pumps, as well as recirculation pumps, unsophisticated controllers and „osmosis guardians“ like the popular Osmolator®, powerful skimmers, efficient filtering solutions, potent waveboxes, fine calcium and algae reactors, chic and highly effective aquarium LEDs, uncountable and helpful accessories and, to top it off, one of the best aquarium glass pane cleaners ever since – the Care Magnet!


The TUNZE® wheel never stops spinning. Since its foundation by the aquaristics pioneer Norbert Tunze, who consistently sought to explore the limits of technology, every year novelties have been developped and launched. TUNZE® traditionally presents these innovations by various media, such as specialist magazines, aquaristic portals, facebook, YouTube, Instagram and every two years at the Interzoo trade fair in Nuremberg. The TUNZE® team is especially pleased to look forward to the new cooperation with Tobias and as THE new voice of classy and sophisticated aquaristics!
