I have a reefer 170 (34g) and I am looking for a wave maker. I want the Nero 5 because I like the app and I have a hydra 32 light. I read that minimum flow is around 900gph. My return is 515gph after head. I want to use the different modes and I don’t think you can if it is set to the lowest setting. If it is too big I’ll go for the mp 10 or hydor wifi controllable pump. I also want to get the larger Nero 5 because I am upgrading tanks in about 1.5 years and hope to use this pump for that too

There may be better options out there but I have one in a standard 30 gallon tank and it is doing fine. I got it to eventually put in my 75 when I transfer the coral over. I have it on random 9% to 30% during the day with 2 15 minute pulse modes at 45% to shake it up and keep clean and 9% to 20% at night. it can definitely be too much if you turn it up though, don’t run at 100!
 

Is it HARD or EASY for you to keep your corals colorful? (check all that apply)
