Quick ? - Wavemaker AND Powerhead(s)???

Question about this - Do I need a wave maker AND a powerhead or 2?

80G Innovative Marine NUVO - AIO,
24" front to back, 48" long and 16" high
Intakes on both ends with 4 adjustable return nozzles in the center.

I kinda like the fun of a wavemaker and if I use that ( haven't ever used one only have used a powerhead for a short time even) will that be in a place acting like one powerhead, and then I need another?

Also read I need 20x rated flow p/h?

Any help would be appreciated.

Looking at Koralia Evolution
750-850 but the next two sizes up are are only cost of one dollar more so cost isn't a factor. Would just like to get the right flow.

As for the wave maker I couldn't begin to guess, but would just look for a highly rated one. Suggestions?

I need one for mixing salt.

I think koralia also makes a wavemaker that their units can plug into, though I don t recall fully.
You want to aim for anywhere between 10-50x turnover depending on what exactly youíre planning on doing.

Wow, I thought a Goldfish tank was high turnover for a filter, (I realize not a filter).

That is so much, I have little flow in my nanos - air bubbler in the corner and AC 20 (up to 100 gph) in the 6.6 and the 30 (up to 150 gph) in the 12G!

Okay.

I saw the Hydor wavemaker controller about $43. Up to 100W. 2 plugs

or 157. basic model and deluxe 4 pumps for $ - yikes $410
Will look into the differences more closely
