Maxijet Natural Wavemaker System

Hi everyone,

Not sure if anyone has seen this yet, but it looks like liveaquaria.com has put together a nice wave maker kit for a decent price. Enjoy!

I thought it was a pretty good price too, considering the Maxijets generally costs between $20-$23 each, and if you need a few in the tank, the Wavemaker is almost free with this deal.

Yep. I just bought 2 new Maxijet replacements a month ago. I wish I this deal would have been there before I purchased them.

I was going to set up a closed loop, so nothing is in the tank - only the inlets and outlets

I have three maxi-jet 1200s and that wave timer in my tank. I bought it all seperately and you can bet I paid more then $82 for it. It works well in my tank, although I am concerned the "start-up" of the PH is a bit harsh. I wonder if it will effect their life? Works well for me.

i wouldn't be too concerned about pump start up. i go diving on the reefs here in hawaii all the time and the water movement is pretty strong and sudden all the time. in nature, waves break on to the reefs.

I believe lando means harsh on the pump itself, not the fish

From what I've read the maxi-jets are the only power heads that can stand up to the constant on/off shock of wave makers.

This setup (natural wave timer + Maxijet 1200's) works even better if you do the "mod" to the Maxijets and cut off the output tube. This produces a wide range of patterns in water flow since these PH's start up in random directions each time.

natural wave timer

Can you buy just the Natural wave timer, if you already have the powerheads?

If I had my tanks going for so long now without this system... Is it going to mess my fish and corals up now if I add this new water movement system? I have 2 maxijet 1200's in the tank now and the edges of the flow hit eachother so there is some turbelance and there is good fow around the tank.
