All this Tao talk is why I bought one. Lol. If they work as well as so many have claimed I will buy 3 more to light my 92 gallon corner tank. Or if they end up being pieces of poop then I have only wasted 100 bucks and consider it a lesson learned. Lol. 👍

Good point, and if they work like the reefbreeders value fixture then I imagine you'll be getting 3 more.

Haha, bribo, I'd rather have a kessil, they are amazing!

I got free shipping on mine, the prices are very on/off right now. Mine was originally $106 but they put it on sale.

I need some opinions please. I bought two 240gph korilia ph for this build. I also bought the korilia smart wave controller. Will this be beneficial to the ecosystem or is it more for personal human enjoyment?

The alternation of the waves is beneficial to the environment. It spread equal flow throughout instead of just blasting one side of the tank with flow.

With 240s in a 20 you may be better off just pointing them at each other and running both all the time. Not positive on this but I think the smart wave just turns one on and one off, or both on it doesn't allow you to control the intensity of the flow. And with 1 240 off your going to be on the way low side for flow

Yeah, the smart wave only allows for alternation, not controllability of intensity.

Should I return one of the 240's and grab a 460ish? Should I return the smart wave and get something different?

New 20 gal reef

Are you planning on keeping sps?
Edit: I personally wouldn't spend the money on the smart wave, but that's really up to you
