90 gallon tank, what wavemakers?

I have a 90 gallon tank and looking at Hydor Koralia Evolution Pumps. Either the 600 or the 850. I also plan on getting the SmartWave Pump Controller. Which one would be better for my size tank? Thanks.

those are to small. Checkout jeabo wp 40 or the larger hydos like the 1500. Tunze makes some nice ones to. Doctor foster and smith has good prices.

I have 2 1400 Koralias in my 90g and its only a fish only tank. if you are looking at keeping corals then you for sure will need some more flow than you are looking at.

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

The jaebo units are great, especially with the control you get for the money

If you have the money, go for some Vortechs or Tunze.

right now vortechs and tunze are out of the question. Do you think a pair of wp25s would work or would a wp25 and wp40 be better?

The 40 puts out some flow. Two 25 one high and one low should work well and your return pump also.
