What power is your nero set to. I have the same tank and power head and mine keeps sucking air off the top. Yours is closer to the surface than mine
since I don’t have coral yet I haven’t settled on an exact location/speed. Currently have it on random 20%-40%. Yes - I have noticed it sucking some air when the speed increases. Not bad though.

UPDATE - IM Lagoon 25 is coming along. I had a small diatom bloom which lasted about a week. I’m doing water changes once every 1.5-2 weeks. I’m dosing NeoNitro to get keep my nutrients up. I currently have 2 orange storm clowns, CUC (crabs and snails), Rainbow BTA, and various coral (mostly euphyllias). Hoping my BTA and clowns pair up soon. Plan on adding Midas Blenny. Once my BTA stops moving around I will place and glue my coral on the rocks. Adding a few more corals tomorrow:)

Very nice!! I have one of these in the corner of my room in an unopened box with every thing I need but the stand. Regrettably the APS stand doesn’t match the room it’s going in so I have to build something that does. It’s slowing me down.

yours gives me some inspiration. Maybe I’ll get the casters on that table saw this weekend. Or maybe I’ll waste it staring at the 14 gal peninsula that is moving into the 25 lagoon.

UPDATE- I finally got a lens for my phone to take better picts. Luving this tank. Have more coral coming in on Friday (super excited). Will be adding a small refuge in the back chamber this weekend.

UPDATED - added a few more corals. More on the way. Tank is doing great. Possum Wrasse is slowing becoming more social. Plan on starting up a refuge soon. Dosing All for Reef now.
