Disappointing featured

Installation and Operation The instructions are great but installation can be a little tricky. There aren't any mounts included so you have to design something to mount it. It's very easy to maintain and doesn't require much maintenance as long as you don't get any substrate flowing through your pump into it. If needed it comes apart easily for cleaning


Performance vs. Expectations I loved this when I first installed it. For less than $100 you can switch your current from side to side in your tank however after I shut it down to perform a water change I haven't been able to get it to work again. I've taken it completely apart 3 times now and cleaned it out just to re-install to find it's still not working. I'm not sure what's wrong with it. When I have it out it seems to operate fine until I hook it back up to the pump (mag drive 18). If you plan on purchasing I would recommend a larger pump. At least 2400 gph as mine doesn't have much pressure with just 1800 gph. It will not create a noticeable wave in your tank but will create an alternating current in the water


Liked about it Price
Good option for those on a budget wanting to alternate current in their tanks without timers


Didn't like No mounting brackets
Didn't work for very long
Needs a large pump to create a decent wave motion

Yet another outstanding Tunze product

General This unit was a little trickey to get mounted in the tank. The stock mounting brackets just don't seem to work well on rimmed tanks. I would suggest getting the magenet mounts. Other than that this is a great product. It can be a little trickey getting the pluse tuned in for you tank but once you have it watch out this created almost a 3" wave in a 220g. The overflow actually had to be modified to keep the water lever lower so it does not splash over the ends. There is a adjustment knob to decrease the wave height but who wants a smaller wave.

Buy the magenet mounts and lower the water level and get ready to ronk and roll!!


Liked about it As always you get Tunze Quality.
Nice long cords keep the AC adapter and controller away from the tank
simple to use controller


Didn't like The box is a little large and bulky in the tank but as lone as your 11" away from the box you can hide it with live rock.
I have never liked the stock Tunze mounting brackets. They look like they would be great on a euro rimless tanks. For $500+ Tunze shouild include the magenet mounts.

Neat gadget

General This little valve gadget is a good option for wavemaking/random flow generation in smaller tanks ... say 4 feet long and smaller. It has a single input and water is split between to outlets ... first one and then the other. Be careful not to oversize your feed pump and thus overdrive this unit.


Liked about it Relatively easy to setup and use.


Didn't like Limited to smaller aquarium applications.
