Where to get circulation pump?

I have a 10 gallon nano reef I'm starting and I need to find a small wavemaker at a very low price? Any suggestions?

Are you talking about a wave maker specifically or is a powerhead a possibility?

You probably have seen this but this seems the smallest and also better rated. I have a bigger one and it worked well. I don't use it any more just because I don't need it.


New to FW fish? Need some info on keeping fish?

I second that Koralia 240 that autumn mentioned above.

For a reef, depending on what if any filter you are using you may actually need two, one for each side if you are keeping coral.

But yeah, figure about $20-25 for a powerhead. Don;t skimp out and get the uber cheap ones off ebay, I had one explode and leaked oil out. Luckily it was just in my mixing can or the results could have been very, very bad.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

x3 , good pumps and I also like the way they use a magnet to hold it rather than the suction cup inside the glass
