      Description: The Wave2K was developed to give the marine hobbyist, for the first time, total water movement. The circulation created from our machine, as in the ocean, cycles between forward water motion (wave in) and the action of that wave going back out. The Wave 2K forces water out of the top of the machine while pulling a similar volume in the bottom, then it reverses that cycle and forces out of the bottom, while pulling water in the top. This reversing action produces the same chaotic movement as you would see snorkeling in the ocean. Imagine pushing out and pulling in 8.8 gallons during each up and down cycle. Now imagine this taking place every 6 seconds, or ten times a minute, or 600 times per hour! Now imagine actually having a small wave across the top surface of your tank, and the joy of watching those flowing type corals actually moving back and forth just as they do in the wild!

      Machine uses surge flow, out while taking water in every 6 seconds, the container holds about 2.3 gallons and cycles 10 times per minute- approx flow 4000 gallons an hour, while running silently and creating random currents and eddies.

      Dimensions: 16.25" x 16.25" x 2.28"

      Flow Features:
      1 = Corner Unit: Low to medium flow in 55 gallons
      2 = Center Unit: High flow to 120, good flow to 180
      3 = 2 Corner Units: High flow to 55, medium flow to 90
      4 = 2 Center Units: Very high flow

      Pros: incredible water movement
      Cons: size and all aesthetics

      The Wave2k is an incredible idea. It uses a water filled box and a raising and lowering paddle to push the water out of the box. As the paddle goes up, the water fills from the bottom and is pushed out the top. As it goes down, the opposite occurs. <br />
      <br />
      This is a spectacular product that is only matched by its size and ugliness. I purchased it for my 90 gallon tank not appreciating the shere size of a 16.25&quot; x 16.25&quot; X 2.5&quot; size. After moving almost 100 pounds of live rock and discovering that my sand bed was a tab bit too deep, I decided that having an ugly black box filling half of my aquarium was not going to work. So I took it out.<br />
      <br />
      If I were installing my 300+ gallon dream system (which is still only a dream), I would definitely want to include a wave2k. Trying to retrofit a Wave2k into a system... I don't think so. any number of powerheads is more preferable to this cumbersome beast.

      Pros: Impeccable, strong, natural wave action
      Cons: Difficult to install in an established reef

      I installed this unit (center unit) as I am setting up a 75-gallon reef tank. It requires about two inches space at the back of the tank. It is easy to install and adjust. If you have a sand bed, you must seal the center drive shaft at the bottom with a coke bottle cap/silicone--very easy. Otherwise, the inhaled sand clogs up the drive mechanism. The wave action is terrific, and spreads to all parts of the aquarium--an ebb and flow. I built my live rock wall in front of the unit without any difficulty (but the live rock must not lay on the unit, which will also impinge on the movement of the paddle inside). The wall of live rock effectively obscures the unit so it is not seen. It operates near silently. As far as I can tell, it offers the best wave action of anything on the market, without fluctuating water levels.

      Pros: Great water movement
      Cons: noise of motor

      New to the reef hobby in Feb of 06 I did a lot of reading on water flow etc... I found my wave 2K on a search engine. After seeing the demo on the home page I bought a center unit for my 90 gallon tank. I have been up and running for about a year now and the only complaint that I have is the noise from the motor. Trying to watch TV can be trying over the noise of the motor running.
      I also built a rock wall in front of my unit, so I don't see much of the bulk of the unit. I have complete water movement throughout my tank with no dead spots. My clown fish also play infront of the surge of water coming out of the top, like the ones in the demo on the web site. I have had to trade out corals that only like minimal flow, due to there being no minimal flow in my tank. My leathers that are in direct line with the surge have tripled in size in less than a year. They love the high flow rate that is constant and never changing. No burnt out power heads from being turned on and off.
      The owner/inventor of the unit goes above and beyond in helping make things go smoothly during set up. I would recommend to anyone wanting total water movement.
