    Anyone got one of these laying around? i know a few were imported a while ago and havent really seen them being used by anyone here in SA...

    i see they are popular overseas and im planning one for my new setup which will be sometime in the distant future....

    thanks Les

    Give Andrew a call from Eco- aquatics, when I was at his place a while ago he had 2 secondhand ones for sale. Don't pm or post on his sponser forum, he's not too active on masa, he's very busy - rather phone him.

    Hey Tobes,
    Check out this web site on these wave makers: www.oceansmotions.com
    Leslie, I have found a web site that stocks the bigger version of the squirt, check out www.aquariumsupplies.co.za under wave makers.
    Just be warmed they are pricey.
    Cheers

    Hi Leslie,
    Have you had any luck?
    I ordered the 4 way oceans motions wave maker and have been trying to find the best way to install it.
    Cheers

    Hi Les. Yeah I,ve got one, unfortunately I,m using it on my new build! This is one from the origional batch that was imported ( ie modded to 220V). This build has gone very slowly for various reasons, but hopefully it is almost there. Just need to sort out the lifting mechanism for the lighting canopy over the tank.
    Seeing that your project is in the distant future, I will let you know how this system works out.
