So I set up my Neptune Dos and listened to Suncrest advice on changing the 2 tubes so the right head rotates clockwise. Everything works as it should but the water only trickles out. I thought it would come out stronger. Anyone have any input. I’m sure I’m worrying for nothing.

What is the volume of water you scheduled, and over how many hours? The DOS automatically adjusts its pumping speed based on these settings, ranging from only 7 mL/minute up to 250 mL/minute.

Ok I was just going by how it was coming out when I was pressing the button to prime. Guess they will spin faster then based on my settings. Thanks Set to do 2839 ml from 0000 to 0700. About .75 gallons a night.

Yes, when you press the prime button it only runs at 25 mL/minute.

The DOS can display the speed settings based on the schedule. On the screen where you see the graphical schedule, click the gear icon for any interval and select "Interval Summary". In your current settings, you'll see it's going to run at the same 25 mL/minute as when you press the prime button. This is probably good since the DOS can be pretty loud at higher speeds, so this should be fairly quiet at night.

Do you quarantine new coral before adding it to your reef tank?
