Wave makers

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to upgrade my wave makers in my IM nuvo 40. I've been looking at getting 2 of the IM wavelink midsized pumps not sure if that would be to much flow. My other thought was getting 1 Nero 5. I'm currently running 2 of the aqamai kps pumps but don't seem to be getting enough flow. Let me know what you guys think! TIA

What kind of tank are you running - mostly SPS, mostly LPS or a mix of everything? You may not need any more flow with 2x Aquamai pumps plus the return pump.

Mostly lps/zoa's with just a few sps right now

If you aren't getting dead spots, you probably have enough flow - you have almost around 2500gph when cranked up. If you want more flow, I always opt for whatever has the widest flow width (Nero, MP, Gyre).

 

As long as it's wide flow, you really aren't ever going to have too much - you are never going to reach the types of flow coral will receive in the ocean.
