    I am looking for wavemakers. At least 02 of them, but, I have the Resun 15000lt wavers, and am looking for something much shorter as well as much wider.

    The "outlet" must be much wider to be able to "disturb/turn" more water at once and it must be much shorter in lenght to minimise visibility inside the tank.

    Can you buy something like that and if you can, where??

    or

    Can someone built something like that???

    Tunze...

    Speak to Walso (likes Fish) he has some Tunze pumps for sale at really good prices. Think he also has a controller too. They will blow your resuns out the water...

    Been thinking and planning the surge device for some time, but I am scared for the excess water in the sump area as well as the fact that I'll basically have to remove the whole lighting canopy to be able to fit something like that, and anything smaller than 200lt over the lenght of the tank is not going to be enough..

    Waldo, if you reading this before I pm me, please speak to me

    Yip, you right, definately petty cash (Accumulated over 01 year I'd say):(

    Will look into the wavebox thing tomorrow Dean, thanks for the link, but too tired to open it (too scared there is a lot of reading and I'll spend more time reading and less time sleeping)

    Ok, this is the only stuff I found that might be big enough:

    Does anyone knows who to talk to regarding the importing of these pumps???

    Tunze Turbelle Stream 6301
    For aquariums from 1000 to 4,000 L
    Flow rate: 9000 to 30000 l/h
    Cable length: 5 m

    [​IMG]

    Or maybe this kit, but would prefer to have less pumps in the display:

    Tunze Stream Kit TS48

    4 pumps Turbelle® stream 6100 with 4x 12,000 l/h Multicontroller 7095 For aquariums of 1,000 - 6,000 L Wave simulation Foodtimer Operation in night mode sequential pump circuit and tide simulation.
