I got my info from aquacave.com and some from petsolutions.com. I prefer aquacave to be honest.

I htink the pro can be used for three different applications. I woudl go with the old school MJ. As long as it looks like the one I showed you it should be fine. i think thepro comes with a whole bunch of nozzles and other nifty stuff.

Good luck let me know how it works out. I had been debating buyin a nano remora myself for my 20g adn would love it if it were in fact upgradeable to a point.

I compared the sizes of the actual untits, the nano and the pro and the nano is like 2 inches shorter, an inch and a half more narrow and I believe 3/4 of inch less deep. So it's pretty much the same piece of hardware just a tad smaller.

I need your help carey, so the pump came in today and it attached to the skimmer just fine but my problem is i dont know how to adjust it so the flow isnt on full blast and i dont see any description of it on the instructions. And this pump is really loud does it have to break in before it isnt as loud.

Can't you just adjust the cup up top as far as getting toomuch water? Or does it just produce too much bubbles?
