    How can I tell if a powerhead is AC or DC?

    Hello fellow saltines, These are my last newb questions for the night. :-) 1. When looking at powerheads, wavemakers, circulation pumps, etc is there a way to know if it's AC or DC? I've been looking at powerheads on Amazon and it doesn't necessarily mention this on the page other than...

    Is my powerhead placement okay?

    I just installed 2 eflux current 1050 gph powerheads. Currently have them set to gyre mode at 70% My hammer retracted completely after turning the powerheads on so worried it might be getting too much flow. Nothing else seems affected

    Power head turned red

    Hi just cleaned my power head for first time….. when I’ve put it back in tank it’s turned red it places. Any ideas? Just used hot tap water and brush to clean..

    Do I need two power heads in a nano?

    I have a Red Sea max nano that’s a very mixed reef. Right now I have the stock pump and one Nero 3 powehead on 20-60% facing different directions. Should I get a second Nero 3? I don’t like the look of so much of the glass being blocked and the cost is a factor. Also worried about too much flow...

    Powerheads: Ramp Up/Down, Stay constant, or other?

    I know coral enjoy the flow during the day time, but what about night? Do we lower flow for them? Do we lower flow for the fish to sleep? I know reefers didn’t worry about this when controllers weren’t a thing, but I’m curious where it stands and what everyone does.

    Currently i have a hydro 240 in my tank and that is it. I feel like this is not good enough for the tank. I want to add a more controllable powerhead and think the AI nero 3 would be a good fit. Is this to much for my tank or should i be fine? Fish list. 2 Clowns, 1 Royal Gramma, 1 Diamondback...

    Gyre vs regular wave maker?

    I currently use an AI Nero 3 for my 25 gallon peninsula AIO. I am seeing some dead spots since my scape is a cove style, and some detritus builds up there. The wavemaker also channels the flow too much and blows the sand out of a corner until it’s bare. I’m wondering, would using a gyre...

    Is a Nero 3 suitable for my 20G tank?

    Hey all, I just purchased a Red Sea Max Nano, it’s a 20g AIO cube. The display is roughly 62L/16.5Gallon. I’ve finally decided on my powerhead, and decided to go a Nero 3. From what I’ve found, most people run a Nero on a tank my size at roughly anywhere from 2%-20% capacity. Just would like...

    Water flow question

    I have a 48x12.5x21”T tank, not a ton of room from to back but plenty across the tank would a single mastech gyre 2k be enough for this tank? I’ve seen them used fairly efficiently on bigger tanks but this will become a sps tank over time too (going to take a few months to get there tho) if...
