Yep, it can control 4 of them so I figured I'd get 2 more for the 125g. It would be awesome!

I'm also considering a used one for this tank, the 20g. I could use the wavemaker feature and ato as well as the lighting control. Plus the ph and temperature modules would be nice. i could see the status if my tank with a glance. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Very cool! Now are the benefits of a wave maker the same as a powerhead, just more natural? Thank you!

I think the wavemaker is supposed to make a more natural enviroment as far as flow. supposed to be good for corals and health of the tank.

Awesome, all of the waves look nice too. You just have too lower you water level, right? Otherwise you will have waves splashing out of your tank, lol.

I went and picked up a rio 200+ for the refugium today. Have it all hooke dup and it seems to be working just fine. Used a piece of spa hose to connect the pump to the intake stem on the box and 3 zip ties to secure it in place. It gives a nice gentle flow, perfect for a refugium. i will add some chaeto tonight or tomorrow and see how it goes.

Side note, this tank is completely infested with flatworms. No idea how they got in there but I plan on using flatworm exit by salifert to eradicate them. Supposed to work almost instantly. I have thousands of those little red things on all my rock and sand. :-(

You need to siphon out as many as possible before using it,and make sure to follow the instructions exactly.You also need to use a powerhead on the rocks just before dosing to get as many in the water column as possible.
