We've been getting a lot of questions lately about how to add the Random Flow Generator™ Nozzle to an IM Nuvo Fusion series tank so we thought it might be a good idea to drop a small primer on how to add the RFG to your build.

To add an RFG nozzle to your IM Nuvo you'll need both a Slip-Fit Drop adapter and the 1/2in RFG nozzle for each outlet.


The Slip-Fit-Drop Adapter is available in two sizes: 16mm and 19mm. The size you need will dependent on the model tank you have. In general, if you have a Nuvo 10 gallon you''ll need the 16mm to 1/2in Adapter, while the rest of the tanks in the Nuvo/Fusion series use the 19mm adapter.


This is almost always true, however, some of the Concept series tanks will also use the 16mm adapter, so the easiest way to tell is to look at the stock fitting:


Installation is very easy and should take just a few minutes.
  • Remove the stock nozzle - it just slips off to reveal the inlet pipe.
  • Assemble the 1/2in RFG nozzle to the the Slip-fit-Drop adapter
  • Attach the assembly to the outlet pipe.

Once you have the adapter and RFG nozzle installed it should look something like this

With the Random Flow Generator™ Nozzle you can now crank the return pump up and start creating a more nature flow environment. Here'a and example of what a single RFG nozzle with a Sicce 1.0 pump can accomplish in an Innovative Marine Fusion 20 Peninsula

The stock pumps that came with you tank will work but the RFG but an upgrade pump will yield even better results. A good choice is to go with Innovation Marines own MightyJet DC pump. it's controllable and can provide enough flow to drive two 1/2in RFG nozzles.

You can find the Nozzle and adapters at most of your favorite online retailers such as Bulk Reef Supply,, Charterhouse Aquatics and many others.

You may also be able to find them at your local fish store:

And of course you can also find them directly at:
