Whatever makes the waves you are looking for.
How big is the tank?
What wavemaker do you have?
What do have for flow in the tank (return pump and all powerheads).

The idea is to get a chaotic type of flow as would naturally occur on a reef. You want the water moving back and forth not in one direction.
