omg i love my scwd. i got it a few months ago, and love it. just make sure you get a good pump to run it. if the pump is too slow it will not switch. but it had yet to fail. and i have not cleaned it or any thing.

I have one running off of my fluval, and it works great! Although, I want to get an electronic wavemaker and a few more powerheads to spruce things up a bit

SCWDS work really well wth a mag 12. Just make sure to use thepre filter or you can damage the SCWD with debris. It is a fairly complex gearbox so an big particles can jam it. That sad i have a freind who has run his ufiltered for over a year without a probem!

In my opinion, we have a Red Sea WaveMaster Pro and it's awesome! I won it on ebay for $80. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!!

I watched your first thread on this. When I decided to buy one, I checked ebay. I got one on there for 29.99 shipped. I should get it today after ordering on Sunday.

Thanks for the heads up.

Question about these Chauvet timers. Are they basically the same thing as the Natural Wave Timer, only cheaper?

I've noticed that it mentions the term "chase". Is that simply an on/off alternating pattern?

I found the Natural Wave Timer on sale http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...al&Np=1&N=2004 for $44.

Which is better?
