I’ve been running my AI Nero 3 on my Evo 13.5 for about 6 months now, but I’ve never been content with the schedule. I started tinkering with my old equipment (I ran an Aqamai KPS prior) and decided to run them both. I remember having success with the preset schedules and decided to match my Nero 3 to the Aqamai SPS Max 50l schedule. I’m currently running both wavemakers on opposite end of the tank matching schedules 1. This cleared up my sand and rock significantly 2. I lowered the flow rate on my Nero 3 and my clownfish seems to enjoy it much more

Excited to see how the corals will, I plan on having an SPS dominant tank - Stylo and Monti will be added this week.

Will continue to share the journey, here’s a quick snapshot of the setting. #useortoss

How is the flow rate with the Nero 3 on the Evo (aside from the schedules)?

I'm looking for a powerhead for my Evo, and a Nero 3 is an option, but I'm worried it will be too powerful. I'm running a softie/LPS tank.

Flow Rate is great - perfect for an Evo and you can adjust strength based on your corals needs. Only drawback with having it on the return pump side is the substrate directly underneath it was a dead zone - granted my rock structure might have a lot to do with it.

aqami kps is a great option for lps/softies as well.

Aqamai KPS is probably my preferred option, but with Hydor going out of business, I'm a little concerned about the support for the App.

I could put a Nero 3 at 90 degrees to the return (just underneath it) and this would provide anti-clockwise flow against the clockwise flow of the return, or I could put it underneath the return to supplement the flow,

Thanks for the feedback, I'll have a think and might give it a try.
