I am using one in my 29 gallon tank its okay but I prefer the wave master pro from Red Sea that I use in my 75 gallon reef. Both wave makers are listed on www.Foster&Smith.com The Wave Pro has 3 regular power outlets and 3 timed outlets that you can set for 20 seconds to 3 min.
on F&S site the wave pro goes for $54.99+S&H , the Wave Master Pro is on sale now for $116.99+S&H. Take a look at both and it might make your decision easier for you.

Natural Wave Makers ?

I'm not sure what you mean but I found...

3iQ Ventures LLC makes a product called SCWD (pronounced "squid")
SCWD: Switching Current Water Director
http://www.3iqventures.com/apd_frame.htm
They have FAQs, Pictures and installation information on their site.

You can also find them on eBay if you search for wave maker

I hope this helps.

The natural wave strip works well, but doesn't give you individual control over each circuit. You have, as the previous post stated, three "always on" ports and three timed ports. It has one control knob for the timer. An example is, at the lowest setting, you would have two plugs that alternate back and forth on a 20 sec on, 20 sec off and the third would be 40 sec on, 40 sec off. As you turn the timer up, the cycle times go up keeping about the same ratio with a max on time of three minutes.
