    I like it, buying one for my tank. I like the flow patterns it creates; it'll be interesting to see what it does in my tank. Thanks for sharing cromag!

    Very cool! I just ordered some of his Multi-Tube Clips. Great idea keeping the tubes organized!

    I am lucky in that he lives local, and was at a recent club event, and demonstrated the nozzles in a tank with an air bleed so we could see the variety of flow!

    I was extra lucky in that I won his raffle donation, and now have two of the RFG nozzles in my tank. I love the varied flow...

    Its cool to see a range of products from a 3d printer. I own one and still can't come up with a way to make it profitable.

    Looks cool and might get one to try out. Thanks for sharing :)

    This looks cool! Are there flow minimums or maximums for better results? Would love to see more about these!

    I don't think they're a sponsor here, but you can contact them through the website or facebook.

    I am a fan of the RFG. I just got mine in and installed them. I love the random flow I get out of it, and best of all no parts to out or go bad. And on a side note they have great customer service. Can't wait to see what comes next from them!

    It's a little hard to see in the back, left corner of my bc29, but my rfg is working great. my nems love the random flow and I have a couple dozen in there I need to please. it also works great in conjunction with my octo fff.

    I ordered a pair of 1/2" RFG nozzles for my Red Sea Reefer return. They provide quite the chaotic flow, particularily when they cross paths with the WAVs from the sides. Corals are all doing well, and I havent seen a drop off in flow rate as a result. I did have to lower my return nozzles, as these have eductors on them to speed up the water, and if they are too close to the surface, they can draw in air instead of water.

    Still, I really like them, and the customer service is amazing. A+ product

    I had the opposite experience, literally 10 mins after placing my order I had received multiple emails including one with shipping info. Lightning fast customer service was my experience.
