Tiny but mighty!
reviewerbadge
PROS
Silent, compact, tons of flow, can dial down from 1% all the way up to 100%
CONS
External magnet could be stronger for thicker glass (used it on 19mm glass.. its rated for 13mm)
REVIEW
Awesome little pump thats very versatile. Its small silent holds it own in my 160g reef yet can be dialed down enough to be used in my nano! Why wasnt this our 5-6 years ago? This one pump could have grown with my countless tank upgrades and saved me the riding the upgrade train over and over.

REVIEW
Honestly I had doubts about the performance level that this would offer. But being from AI, I pulled the trigger and all I can say is wow! This little pump moves water like no other and getting a standing wave was super simple. This easily replaced two of my mp10qwd which are now collecting dust in ...Read More

Nero 5 - Super Powerful
reviewerbadge
PROS
Ease of use, Powerful, Small, Moderste Price
CONS
Open Front of wavemaker
REVIEW
The Nero 5 offers a very satisfying flow rate for such a small wave maker. Up to 2000 GPH if tuned properly! Mine is currently pumping out (no pun intended) around 1880 GPH at 45% of power. Insane amount of power for a moderate price point. Works in conjunction with the iOS (MyAI) app, lights, etc.
