    I have a 200l fish only marine aquarium. What is the correct turnover rate? Right now I have an internal filter rated at 1290 l/h and wave maker at 1000 l/h. That's about 11 and a half times turnover. Is that enough?

    Well I have had my tank up and running for a little over a year now. I am interested in buying a wave maker to increase the current or flow of the water. I currently have a Hydor powerhead that is rated 425 gph. I have a 40 gallon breeder tank and want to give it that reef like motion in the...
  4. The THINK Tank
    So I never liked the "Wavemaker" pumps.. I have a wavemaker with my Koralia's.. But it's just not the same as real waves.. It just "simulates" waves, but it's not real waves.. So I've been mulling over ideas for a wavemaker, but there were too many working parts for it to be practical. But then...

    Im considering how these style wave makers would work with a powerhead like a tunze 6025 or similar, it just cycles the pumps on and off, I understand the constant start and stop of the pump would wear it down quicker, but what sort of life would i expect from the pumps using these...

    Ok, I just purchased a mp10wes, soon to be followed by another. Right now they will benefit my 55g sps reef. However, i will be switching over to a 75g rimless tank soon and want to have a long pulse wave throughout it. Anybody have good/bad situations with their sand beds due to a wave in...

    Hi, I want to make a wave maker with arduino to drive koralia pumps 12V. I know that these pumps are powered at 12Vac 500Hz and that changing the duty cicle and frequency it is possible change speed and turn direction. Here in Italy (sorry for my english) we haven't any information about...

    Ok, I replaced my sump today. Same size, but I made the return pump section smaller, the overall baffles lower, and made them over under over instead of under over under (this was a mistake...I didnt listen). Anyways, I have something odd going on. The sump section has wave action! The size...

    :help::bln-confused: Sorry if this seems a stupid (and long) question - I am still learning (and probably will be all my life). I understand the need for high random flow within a reef tank and that this flow needs to be pretty high 30X or more the tank capacity I think - correct me if this is...
