    How much GPH for wavemaker based on number of gallons?

    I’ve been posting so many threads today, but I’m trying to really dial in my settings so my corals are happy. I have an AI Nero 3 in my 25 gallon tank. Currently it’s set to ~1,100 GPH. This is for my mixed reef tank with SPS, LPS, and softies. Would you say this amount of flow is too much...

    What type of GPH wave maker do I need for a 29 Gallon (30x19x13)?

    I have 4 zoas, 5 SPS corals, and 2 LPS. Most require moderate currents except for the 2 Birdsnest I have. It use to be a FOWLR. Im more concerned with the fishes as im running a mini protein skimmer and HOB filter with a GPH of 200 and they stay away from that area of the tank. Ive been reading...

    82gph enough flow for 3g?

    Hello, quick question. Is 82gph enough flow for an entire pico 3g? It would be all from the return pump. I could upgrade down the road if I need to. I plan on just keeping some Zoas and acans. Thank you in advance.

    Small Quiet DC Return Pump?

    Alright, so I got a Innovative Marine Concept Abyss Peninsula tank last year from Reef-a-Palooza and was only able to set it up now. The stock return pump turned out to be pretty noisy no matter how much I fiddled with the impeller. I need a return pump that can fit in a 2.8” by 6” footprint...

    Nero 5 - % Settings and Actual Flow

    First, I want to say that I love these pumps. If I were writing a review on a vendor website, it would be "5 stars" and "yes, I would recommend to a friend." These are my first controllable pumps and I find the app to be really easy to use, fun to program, and I think built-in flow meter is...

    POLL: How Much Return Line Flow Do You Run?

    Just like the title says, how much flow do you run through your return pump and back to the display tank. There are a number of opinions on how much GPH you should (or shouldn’t) run through your filtration systems, but really for this poll, I’m just interested in how much flow, in approx. GPH...
