Wavemakers

Anyone know of any good wavemakers?

I bought 3 of these wavemakers but I am not completely satisfied with them because the suction cups fall off and the wavemaker ends up pointing down towards the sand.

I have a 90 gallon tank with 2700 gph flow.

For powerheads, I like the Koralia Evolutions. Besides suction cups, they have magnets as well. I've never had them fall out of place.

If you're looking for a wavemaker, The eco vortechs are the way to go....just super pricey imo.

For the Koralia Evolutions powerheads I noticed they dont look like the current power heads that I have. They look more like wavemakers. Do the function the same way a powehead would work?

The evolutions are powerheads. Though Koralia has a wavemaker module that the evolutions can attach to. The wavemaker then syncronizes the evolution powerheads to produce waves.
