Anyone have the wifi model yet? I'm curious if they are the same as the non-wifi model except you use a phone app vs. the controller manually. Or if the wifi version add time based scheduling. If the wifi version has extra features I'm all for it. But if they are the same just have wifi via phone app I'd just prefer the simple non wifi version.

I'm starting up a 75 gallon in the next couple months and considering (2) SLW-20M, (2) Nero 5, or (2) IceCap 2k Gyro. Since the tank really for the first 6-12 months will be maturing I'm considering just buying the SLW-20 or SLW-20M and running them for a year or two then upgrading later.

I'm wondering the same thing I have a 100g. We currently have a maxspect gyre XF330 and was going to add another gyre for alternating flow (non-wifi). We have a MP10 for flow in the back and I want to add the SLW-20 in the middle for wider flow. The only one that has WiFi is the MP10 which is hooked to our Neptune... I do like being able to control things remotely curious to know more about the SLW wifi features.

I really wanted the Nero for the look at the end of the day though the price really is what made the difference. I really believe it comes down to tank size and what you're trying to accomplish.

Ive got 2 slw-20 now. Will be getting the slw30m, scp180m and sow-20m. Im currently setting up a couple of large reefs. Added rock to the first 400g. It has 6 holes in the back wall for closed loop. I ordered 4 of the new jebao mdc10000 pumps for that. They will have the vca nozzles on each of the 4 outlets. This should give the app a pretty good test.
