What kind of corals are you keeping or planning to keep?

well right now I mostly have lps corals, acans, a hammer, and frogspawn with some zoo frags. I also have a birdsnest frag which has done beautifully, it's my first sps. I just orderd some montipora caps and digitadas, that's spelled wrong sorry, and 2 acro frags. My flow now is good but I'd like to make it more random.

For 3ft long tanks or smaller, I think the flow is going to be in the SPS level - very high and strong. Your softies will die and LPS would suffer. When I placed the WP40 in my 46g on wave mode, my torches retracted.

You would have to:
1. place your LPS in an area with less flow or
2. rescape your tank to have an area isolated from high flow or
3. find the sweet spot for WP40 placement in your tank

Or a combination of all 3..

So when it's on wave mode it's not possible to turn down the power?

Nope, power is not adjustable. You can only decrease the frequency of the wave. If you go buy a variable voltage supply, then yes it can be working fine for any tank. I hear this stuff can be bought from amazon for under $20.

I might just get a simple power head and put it on a timer so it turns on and off every 15 mins or so

Yes as a matter of fact I got mine thursday. Was giving it some time before I posted but so far it is great and I'm ready for another lol . It almost blows sand all the was across the 180 . Makes waves and all that with ease but I have been running on the auto mode where it changes the flow patterns randomly. So far so good .

I got one to 3 days ago, works great, if anyone interested AquaGiant in East Edmonton have it $110.
Little bit more powerful than I tought would be so I have disconnected my other 2 Hydor pump and 1 no brand from E-bay, finally some reasonably priced actual wave maker pump. I almost bought 2 VorTech MP10w for $500 last years boxing week sale.
After 10 year in this hobby still cannot get used to the 1000% markup price, probably I'll buy another WP40 later this month, good luck Ecotech Marine getting my cash
