i have one in my 15g. its so strong i have it turned down to just 20% and it still gives full flow to my tank. Good thing about the nero series is you can set the % of flow you want.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 to check, is a Nero 3 suitable for my tank, or will it be overkill? Not sure if running it super low for long times could cause damage to the motor perhaps?
I am not sure but I am doing that now! I wonder if anyone else could chime in and let us know if this is a bad thing to do?Just got an extra Nero 3 for my 20g AIO. I'd like to put it on the back wall but that means the 'dry side' magnet would be under water in the AIO "sump" . Bad idea? No problem? thanks
Actually I contacted AI and they said while that magnet is not designed to be underwater and they don’t directly recommend doing it they know that many people do it with no problems whatsoever. So a little cya on their part and the choice is ours I believe.I am not sure but I am doing that now! I wonder if anyone else could chime in and let us know if this is a bad thing to do?
Can you send me a snapshot of your schedule? I have one on my 20 gallon long and am having trouble getting it setup.I run a Nero 3 on my 20 gallon. 65% max rating I think I'm at 1500 gpm. I was so worried to begin with but everything is doing much better with the higher flow.
