Korolias arent good for wave makers. Plus wavemakers need a good understanding to work right.

Lance... Koralia makes a new 12V version for use with their own wavemaker.

Tamra&Steven... seems like everyplace I've seen them, they're on "backorder". Not sure if anyone has actually seen them yet!

Im guessing the 12 volt part would be the controller. The controller might take batteries? Do you have a link?

Wavemakers are more for looks then total overall tank health. In the wrong hands will cause many problems and most reefers dont need them.

Tamra&Steven - looks like from the link they're now available, so I take back what I said!

The only bad thing I heard about them is the price and they only work with the new controllable Koralias. The unit you linked to can only control 2 ph's. The better controller that can control up to 4 ph's is close to $500.

Personally, I would give them about a year before I considered purchasing them. I love Hydors, but I got one of the first batches of 2s and they had some issues. The covering of the motor was not sealed properly and they had a recall on them. This happened to me nad fried my tank. So, give them some time to work out the kinks, JME.
