    Hi guys I am looking for some advise please! I got a 800*800*900 cube and I want to put 2 wavemakers in it. I have read a bit about the jaebo wp series and see that it is good value for money. But I also saw that many of the people say that the wp25 is a bit violent for their tank. So if there is some of you that might help me I would much appreciate it! And how is the jaebo rw series?

    I just put a RW8 in my 250 liter tank. I have it on full steam on else mode. I have in the back left corner point across to the opposite corner. Very good movement everywhere, lifts food straight of the gravel after feeding pause and their is nothing in that tank that doesn't swing anymore.

    Very happy with it. (3 days only so can't comment on longevity)

    RW4 4000l/h
    RW8 8000l/h

    Some guys have said the RW8 is too much for their 250 liter tanks but it depends on type of gravel, corals, future growth etc.

    Do you only have one wavemaker in you're tank?

    Just the one. I have to strong returns that point forward from the back out of each corner but the one powerhead on random really gives the tank life.

    You don't need two to make a wave if that's your plan. The RW8 has a start stop function at any speed with variable timing of the start/stop length. That allows you to change the pulsations until it's perfect for your tank length and makes a lekker wave. Bit difficult with a cube though.
