Wave maker install spot

Hi all,

I feel that my 30" tank is not flow well in front of the tank.

I have build-in overflow with power head distribute water back into main tank. However, I noticed front of the tank is full of dust. I believe my tank probably did not have enough circulation.

Now, I am thinking to buy Sun Sun JVP-102 wave maker. What do you think? Where should i put the fan? (see drawing for A1, A2 and A3). Also, want to know what is the right number of power to fit my tank? (30" x 18" x 18") around 110 liter of water. Is 5,000 liter/ hr is enough?

Pls see attachment...thank you in advance.

Yes, I decided to installed at A1 last week. However, my wave maker seems to be too strong for me little tank.


My tank is 120 liters and my wave maker is 3,000 liter per hour. I don't see any smaller power of this wave maker in my market as well. What shall I do?

I have seen 2000lh ones on eBay, but I have 125ltr tank and have a 6000lh and the flow round the tank is really good, not too powerful

Why do you feel it's to strong? try aiming it up more towards the top center of the tank A1 but towards the surface

That's not too strong. Just aim it at different spots.

I had mine half way down and pointing forwards at A1 and it was moving all the sand, now I have it pointing to the middle top and it's fine and still no dead spots but that's a 6000lh in a 125ltr tank

So, I suppose to use the wave maker to suck the dust from the back and blow it up to the surface?

Will try again tomorrow.
