On my system i'm running a SCWD wave maker on the pump output.

"SCWD—Squid—Wavemakers
The SCWD (pronounced "squid") Wavemaker is a revolutionary device designed to provide alternating currents without the use of electricty. The SCWD mounts inline with 3/4" tubing, the two ports alternate the output, the bottom port is the input. A great alternative to expensive electronic ball valves. The SCWD will run on any pump with a minimum output of 50 GPH and a maximum output of 1400. The switching speed and current duration is dependent on the volume of water flowing through the SCWD. You can control the duration by controlling the flow going through the SCWD. Can be submersed for use with large power heads or used externally. Provides alternating current between two ports. connects to any pump up to 1400 GPH" it comes in 2 sizes 3/4" and 1".

My Tangs and Rabbitfish all take turns swimming against the current.

Are you saying that this takes the place of a large tank?

I have a 4" hippo and added a 2" purple tang to my 160. There was some initial dominance by the hippo but after a day or so they were calm. It's been 6 months and all is well. I figure I have about another year or so and the hippo will get donated to a local aquarium.

No! I'm saying in my tank it gives more stimulation swimming against the current.

Sounds like an extremely elaborate description of a powerhead to me.

I have two wave-makers in my tank just FYI.

For the price or one power head! I have never observed any of my fish swim into the current from any of my 4 power heads! Have you?
