Welcome aboard. I just joined a bit ago after being recommended by cuddle fish. Now I'm partaking in an sps grow out that I will win last place on 😂. How do you like the Eflux 660 wave maker? I have two in my max nano and I have to constantly clean them as they lose flow real fast and don't like to run below 50%, they just stop. I think the motors or controller are too weak for what they do.

Welcome from another Beaverton newbie. I started my Reefer 425 about 6 months ago.  Lots of good advice on this forum.

Running an experiment to see if I can negate a drain pipe in the overflow and just use the bulk head drain and tube. So far it touchy but almost dialed in. The pump is running a constant rpm. The pump I just picked up does a wave mode as well but my drain through the sump cant keep up. Will keep yall posted.

I like the waterbox build quality but I'm running a jabeo 2000 because it's one of the few dc pumps that fit without modification. 

Thanks for the welcome.

For my so gallon it's great. Not too powerful but I recommend the bluetooth module because the ir is crap. The ir just dosent work or at least mine did not. The bluetooth makes it easy to control and set.

Your right, mine haven't had stoppage yet but they definitely do not run the same but overall I'm still because the provide declscent flow but would not purchase again.

Thanks for the help. I just bought a marine aqua dc 12000 (12000 lph). I have been successful so far. I have no drain pipe but have the bulk head and drain line. The pump is so strong my marine 75g with corner overflow is whisper quiet. No water falling, no gurgling no hum. The loudest is the t247 lights. It's just as quiet as my aio waterbox.
