Hello all,

I own a 5 gallon nano reef that measures 16 wide inches by 8 inches wide.

I have been having some Cyano Bacteria Issues at the front of the tank where the light is most prominent.

I am looking for the smallest wave maker pump that will fit comfortably within my tank.

I have been searching and all of them would be a little too big for my tank.
If you have any recommendations I would appreciate it.

Thank you !

Aqamai kps is a circulation pump and has too high flow for 5 gal tank.

Nothing at my knowledge. How are your nitrates and phosphates?

According to Aqamai, the KPS is a wavemaker. It can definitely pulse well enough to produce variable flow.

I have one on my 13g EVO, on a high SPS flow setting, and it isn’t overly powerful. That said, I did remove another one from my softie EVO tank as it was blowing them around a bit. I don’t think you’ll find much smaller than that though.

More flow might not solve your cyano issue in any case.
