The Nero pump you know and love, now in a smaller form factor. Aqua Illumination's Nero 3 creates an adjustable broad flow that is strong but gentle at the same time. Traditional propeller designs produce a hard stream that can irritate corals where the Nero 3's innovative propeller pushes water in a wide pattern that can move foods, detritus, or other free-floating particles around without blasting corals directly.

Powerheads have many different uses around a reef tank, but the main goal is to produce enough flow to keep low-flow spots from forming in your tank and help elevate detritus to be sucked into the filtration. With Bluetooth LE technology you can set the pump up into different modes, or create a daily schedule to change the flow up throughout the day.


- Whisper Quiet.

- App Controllable.

- Efficient & Compact Design.

- Max Flow: 2,000 gph (7,570 lph).

- Max Glass Thickness: 13mm.

- Dimensions (Inside the Tank wet side): 1.54" x 2.25".

- Power Consumption: (variable) 20w.

Flow Modes:

- Random - Keep your tank guessing with the random flow mode. The Nero 3 will randomly change its flow rate throughout the day creating natural water movement throughout your reef tank. 

- Pulse - Creating a standing wave can be done with the Nero 3 in Pulse Mode. The pulse interval can be changed to harmonize with your aquarium, along with the max flow rate. Having a wave can cause additional stress on your aquarium, but is a great method for lifting settled detritus from hard to reach areas. 

- Constant - Set it and forget it! Just set the appropriate flow rate and the Nero 3 will keep flowing at that speed until you change the mode or flow. 

- Schedule - Create a schedule that can utilize multiple different flow modes. With the MyAi app creating a schedule for your flow is simple and can be done in minutes!

- Feed - If you target feed, having a pump with feed mode is a requirement. Just hold the driver button for 2-5 seconds to put the Nero 3 into feed mode for 10 minutes. 

- All-Off - Turn off your pump whenever you want with full control over when they turn back on. Just hold the driver button for 6 or more seconds to turn the pump off. Touching the button again will restart the pump. 

Mounting the Nero 3 only takes a minute and with the included magnetic mounting system moving the pump around only takes a second. Giving around 15° of movement, you can angle the Nero 5 to direct flow in your aquarium where you need it.

The two-part mounting system incorporates an inner magnet and an outer magnet that can couple together through 13mm of glass or less, and the pump then sits into the bevelled inner magnet for an isolated and quiet mounting system.
