Best pump/wave maker for a 40 gallon tank

Hello all,


Changing to a 40 gallon saltwater tank and looking for the best product to make the best flow in my tank to eradicate dead spots....

Oh yeah and for a reasonable price... I am not looking to spend more than 75$ for this...


Also is there a good wave maker that has a protein skimmer built in for a good price as well?

With sand all you really need to do is swirl the end of the vacuum cleaner thingy mo-bober a inch or so above the sand. The dirt will float up and into the cleaner to be sucked away. It may pick up a little sand the first couple times but you'll get the hang of it. Every so often during a water change I take something to lightly stir up the sand to clean a little better.
