I bought 2 brand new Nero 5 pumps last week with the intention to use them on my new build, but decided to go another direction. I did open ONE of the boxes to start looking at the pump, but never even set anything up. Paid $475 after tax for both of them last week. Save yourself a few bucks for...
Hi, as of recent I bought a Waterbox Reef 130.4 and I’m looking into some flow options. I’m currently looking at a mp40, nero 5 and a gyre of some sort. I’ll be buying only one and will be adding another one in the future. Does anyone have any experience with one of these (or more) and would...
New tank is coming on Saturday, it’ll be a big jump from my 24g aio. Figured I’d start my build thread even though I’ve been collecting equipment for over a year because of a failed 93 cube rebuild. The plan is a bare bottom mixed reef with about 75+/-lbs of live rock. I’ll eventually move the...

First option is two AI Nero 5s
I like them because of the small...

Hello R2R community!
I've been in the saltwater aquarium hobby for about 10 years. I started with a 46 gallon bow front which I upgraded to my current 75 gallon about 5 years ago. Build thread here. It's been a great adventure with ups and downs. I got a steal of a deal on the 75. It's old...
I have been doing tons of research and can’t pick between the tunze, vortech or ai for my powerheads. I had decided very early to use the mp40 but now that I can’t find it anywhere along with the g5 lights I have begun to rethink things for my 120(4x2x2).
what u know so far:
Hello everyone. I’m new to reefing and was curious about my Nero 5. I’m sure it’s probably overkill for my 20 gallon cube nano but purchase has been made and there’s no going back lol. What kind of flow rate should I be targeting for? I plan on keeping a mixed reef. I’m sure there’s plenty to...

Buy 2 and price is...
Hi, I'm new to reefing and I'm looking for some help with what to do for a battery backup. I have waterbox marine 60.2 running a nero 5. I live in new england so power outages happen during every season of the year. I'm just wondering if anyone has experience with different battery backups for...
The Nero 5 was used for less than 2 weeks. Works perfectly, completely cleaned before shipping to you, ready for addition to the myAI app. Comes with original packaging.
Jebao SLW-10 was used for about 4 months, also works perfectly and will be completely cleaned before shipping. Does not come...
I have for sale 2 Aqua Illumination Nero 5's for $185 each shipped. I just cleaned them in some citric acid and boxed them up. They were purchased from BRS in Feb 2019 and put into service in May 2019. They were used from May 2019 until Jan 2020. So about 8 months. I never had any problems with...
What do guys think? I’m upgrading to a Waterbox 20G Cube and I am deciding on whether should I get the Nero 5 or just get the Jebao SLW20? They look similar but does having the “Legit” in make a difference? Any input is appreciated!
I am making a guard for the nero much like I did for the ecotech products (Check out the ones I sell, link below). The question I have for anyone who uses these pumps is how much do you value the small amount of angle adjustment that it has? If a anemone guard meant that the angle could not be...
I’ve recently purchased a Waterbox 100.3 (36x24x24) and am considering what to use for water circulation.
Currently I’m considering:
1 x mp40
1 x Nero 5
2 x maxspect gyre xf330 (overkill?)
I’d be interested to hear thoughts and what others are using on their tanks of this size.
Selling 4X Nero 5 pumps.
They're all like-new, crazy clean, and very quiet (no one pump is louder than any other). Two of the pumps were purchased new in February (I can provide documentation if requested), whereas the other two were purchased locally (estimated 6-9 months total use to date)...
