    Hey guys,

    Yesterday i got given a new toy... a boy wave maker. they come with a controller... seems really cool! any one tryed these? i see on the box they make a WM-3 model which is 4X28W units on one controller.

    What would you guys say is a fair price for a powerhead with controller (rated at 40 to 260L tank)?

    I heard of these power-heads. They seem VERY good value for money. BUT, it seems that the one that Henk has is not the 6000 litre per hour unit? If it is only rated for 40litre to 240 litre tanks????

    Henk - what type of attaching bracket do they come with? Magnets? Or the same as the ReSun (hang on tank) brackets?

    OK - thanks Henk - so the same as the ReSun Wavemakers (that I currently have running in my tank)....
    I want 2 x power-heads that does not "hang on" the tank, neither has suction cups only - to place in the centre rear of my tank - unfortunately I have bracing along the WHOLE width of my tank (left to right) so I cannot have another hang-on bracket power-head..... And suction cups are CRAP...

    Jacques,you do get the brackets for the seios that can be used to clamp on your bracing,instead of hanging over like the ones that are included with the pumps
