Power heads or wave makers ?

Have a 55 gallon with a fox face, cardinal, and box fish. All small right now. I am upgrading to a 180 in 6 weeks. Right now I have 2 power heads. 350 gph. I need advice as to what I should purchase for new tank. Not adding corals. Just fish. Picasso trigger. Naso tang. An eel. And maybe a lion fish. Please advise

if money isn't an issue, i would get 1 wave maker and 1 750gph(or higher) PH. wave makers are so nice to have with all the controllers, and different settings you can choose from.

You can't beat a Vortech IMHO. I have a MP10 on my bio cube and love it.
