I bought this for my 85G and it's doing a good job for the most part. It was easy to set up and I was able to get it working without difficulties. It produces 1" waves and my inhabitants seem to be happy, particularly my zoas. The waves are not overpowering and the water movement is very natural. If you have a deeper tank, you will still need circulation pumps/powerheads to move water for the bottom half. My tank is 30" deep and the Wavebox cannot reach the bottom since it has to be positioned at the top. Some things could be improved: (1) The controller could be built better. It feels cheap and the connectors popped out of place during shipping and I couldn't plug the Wavebox in. I had to open it up and firmly press things in place. Even then, the connection isn't as secure as I'd like. (2) There's a clicking sound as the pump goes ON/OFF, however, it is very subtle and you won't be able to hear it unless you're "looking" for it. (3) The Wavebox itself can be more aesthetically pleasing. It's a little bulky.

Great little wave maker for our 55 mixed reef tank ! But if You hook one up and the noise is way loud , Don't get upset !! Pull the box apart and put the pump back together,Ours came apart during shipping I guess.Then all will be good ! Dam Hydor pumps make way to much noise trying to make waves! Don't waste Your money on them ! Get a wave box !!

I own a 150 gallon reef tank. Was going to purchase the variable power heads, but I couldn't justify the cost. I decided to go with the wave box, because of the initial cost and after reading the reviews here on BRS. I love the 1" wave it produces. I haven't done it yet, but I think I am going to change to power setting/resister (supplied in the power pack) to get a slightly bigger wave. Well packaged, good quality. I would recommend this product 100%.

I have a 6' long 180 gallon tank, and I debated this product because I wasn't sure if it would be effective enough for a tank of this size. I didn't want to spend almost twice as much on the 6215 wavebox, so I thought I'd give this a try. I wasn't looking for large waves, and I mostly just wanted to eliminate dead spots and see my corals sway back and forth. This product does the job. In a tank this size, it produces a 1" wave. It eliminated dead spots in my tank, and I was able to remove a few powerheads as a result. I am left with my 2 MP40's and this wavebox in my tank. You'll definitely want to leave some powerheads in the tank to remove the debris that this wavebox suspends in the water column. The wavebox was very easy to set up and adjust, and it runs quietly.
