Anyone on here using the Aqamai KPS phowerhead? I'm interested in one but wanted some input on performance.

It’s an amazing powerful pump, how large is your aquarium?

I have one on my nuvo 10. I like it. It's small, wifi controlled, and powerful for its size. My only real complaint is that you can't connect it to your home network.

I really like these pumps.  Tiny, super quiet and highly customizable, down to every 30 minutes.  I have 2 in my 20g right now.

I think a KPM would be too much, I have a KPS in a 24 and it's plenty and not even turned up all the way.

Those are two different beasts entirely, I have never had the nero so I can't speak to that one.

The Nero 5 is really nice.  I've been to a friend's house who has 2 Nero 5s running, and they are also really quiet.  They are just different pumps tho.  Way more output (3,000 max gph vs 1,050 max gph for KPS), but twice the cost (at around $250 vs $120 for a KPS).  Nero is a bit larger too in size, but makes sense given how much flow they put out.

I have my kps running the 200l sps mode customized to not tune down at night. In a 24g I'd go with 2 kps.

Ya I've been looking at getting one as I already have the Aqamai light (Awesome!!) and it would intergrate with it. The price point is also a plus $119. My other concern was the size I don't want it to be super bulky being that the tank is only 12g.

Sounds like a match!

The light looks cool. Haven't seen many users online

I feel like there are a lot of blind spot with a single powerhead in a cube

I have no dead spots. 

My return pump is 538gph with random flow generators plus the kps.

 

It really depends on rockwork, powerhead placement, if there are return pumps or hobs.

 

There really is no precise 1 answer works for all
