Hello DohnHi George. What do you mean by alternating every 5.5 hours.I also have a tunze wavebox and i was thinking i'd switch it off at night time so that the fishies can sleep peacefully. When its lights out it'll only be my sump return line circulating the water. Is this ok. I have a resun wavemaker i could maybe alternate with.
I see no problem with that you could play with the times to suit you, I'm sure after a week or so you will find a happy medium as to times, I find the more varied the flow the better results overallI was thinking more a long the lines of using the wavebox during the day, switching it off, and then powering the resun wavemaker up at night from the opposite side of the tank. wasn't going to run it on the same controller, i could maybe use a relay with the photo cell sensor that came with the wave box. When lights go off, wavebox go's off and this charges the relay which powers the resun. when lights come on, wavebox switches on, discharges a relay and the resun switches off.
Needed Items For your 4 ft tankThat looks like a very nice, gentle wave motion there George.
What would I need to set something like this up in a 4ft tank? I'm assuming, the box, a pump and a controller? How does the wavebox fit onto the tank?
What's the price on that George? My tank is a 1.2L x 400H x 600WNeeded Items For your 4 ft tank
1) Nano wave box in the corner
2) Central or c2c outlet
3) Well constucted tank
4) 50mm space from top of tank and waterlevel
Tha nano wave box comes with it's own magnet & is minute & can be placed any where
5) Sit back & enjoy.
Hello scubaninjageorge do you need to have a central overflow to have a wavebox as i've got a corner overflow? if i turned down the power of the wavebox to a lower flow would that mean i get a smaller wave which may be less hectic on the overflow? I know about the frequency of the waves etc but i'm asking in your experience, do they funtion well in tanks with no central overflow?
yeah i was worried about the fact of the water not flowing over the edge constantly. what fine adjustments would i need to make? the frequency of the wave?Hello scubaninja
Yes the ideal is a central overflow, and no, you cant turn the power down as the wave box pics up the natural resonance of the tank at a specific frequency dependant on the tanks dimensions.( every tank is different)
You can play a little with the controller to create a double wave, which lowers the end to end height, but that takes very fine adjustments.
The reason a central outlet is required is that when the waveis at the other end no water will go over the spill way for that duration of time.
