Hello, I have a Fluval Evo 13.5 and wanted a very small wave maker circulation pump since tank space was at a premium. After a lot of research, this is the smallest I have found.

e.g.
Hygger 1.5 x 1.5 inches (better reviews than Jebao)
Jebao SLW 5 is 2.5 x 1.5 inches (some poor reviews)
Fluval Sea CP1 3.6 x 5.6 x 3.8 inches!!!


Hygger 1600gph, 3-25 gallon:

I use 2 jebao 10's in my 20g set on low. Alternate timing (on off). They do get dirty fast and I have to clean them weekly with a bottle brush.

Might be over kill but small and very controllable - Nero 3 (I got those in a 5 gallon nps tank - and 4 on my 50 gallon. Love them

I had the Hygger mini in mine and still seemed like too much flow on the lowest setting. I have since taken it out and am only running the Sicce Silent .5 in the return with two RFG's. I also have a Sicce Nano stream that I have not tried yet. I only have softies and LPS.

I've also had the Jebao OW-10, SW-2 and SLW-10 and did not like their quality and how the blades stopped during the pulse mode.

I have the same Hygger in my 32 Biocube. Small profile, good flow.. I have it on the opposite side of the tank from the return to create crossflow. Seems to work well if maybe a bit strong.
