    Hey Mate

    I have been using one of these pumps for my Boyu TL-450.

    They work damn well. current can be a little much in a nano if not placed in the right area.

    As a supplement to other pumps in there then it could work, but as the main driver i say its too small.

    they really do give a decent about of movement out. but in a 4ft system it might be a little too small if you plan on running it as your only pump. but if its a secondary that you want to use the break water movement and mix it around a bit. i think they are perfect

    Can't you dial them down a bit though? It comes with a controller, so you wont run it full tilt?

    I know Fly* is also using one in his nano, but it's probably too small for a 4 ft.

    They do a 7ml as well.

    with a preprogrammed timer which automatically alternates the flow every 15 seconds for the 10ml, 5 seconds for the 7 ml and 10 seconds for the 4 ml with a 5 second pause with every alternation.

    the 4ml does not come with a controller as far as i know. when les's tank is up and running again I can take mine out for him to try.
