Great for a gentle tank. I enjoy the AI products

Lisa P
Great flow

After being out of the hobby for a few years so much changed but I see AI upped the game. Fantastic little wavemaker. Has some pretty great flow for something so small.

Housing cracked broken after 2 years of use

Bought this Oct 15, 2020 and it just stopped working today. I notice a small hairline fracture in the plastic housing, possibly this was there when it was purchased??. If you are planning to buy anything AI please note that unless you register the product with AI within 30 days of purchase, they wont honour the 1 year limited warranty. Not worth the $250 price tag for a crappy product!

Aqua illumination Nero 3 Wavemaker

Received the Nero3 on Oct of 2021, Order ID# 87130. Best features of this wave pump are the easily set customizations for Flow via a Android App, it's low profile. and, in real-time, the GPH flow rate of unit. No issues to this date. I use it on a 30gal tall Coral Tank with fishes. .

Very happy with the Nero 3, works great and is quiet. Perfect size for my Waterbox 20 cube. It has many features and the app is user friendly. Great value for the price.
