Water movement is life.

In marine reef aquariums, waves and water movement are ESSENTIAL for the good health of the whole habitat.

Oxygenation

Oxygenation

Gas exchange process = It facilitates ingoing Oxygen and outgoing CO2 preventing alkalinity.

Coral care

Coral care

It keeps corals cleaned by general waste and mucus excess, preventing coral's suffocation or bacteria growth

Food diffusion

Food diffusion

It prevents food deposits and let natural nutrients to be spread in the water

Which kind of pump works for this?

Popularly called with different names (axial pump, propeller pump, circulation pump, etc...) a stream pump (like Rossmont Mover) has a particular wide turbulent jet, gentle but efficient and suitable for this purpose.

It's action cone is designed to move the whole mass of water (as happens in nature) while common powerheads pumps in commerce are not able to solve this function because their laminar jet is too direct and concentrated.

And what about freshwater?

In the same manner, moving water supports the gas exchange with the adjcent air and it naturally facilitates the growth and the wealth of fishes and plants. It also avoids the formation of stagnant areas (dead spots) among the plants and it helps in maintaining a uniform water temperature in all its points.

Moreover, it helps the aquarium filters in waste removal.

How to make the right choice?

Follow next steps to choose the products that fit most in your tank

1. Know the available models

2. Define how much water movement your tank needs.

Consider:
- Tank volume 
- Aquarium population density (LOW- MED - HIGH)
- Quantity of rocks 
- Type of corals
- Type of tank management

NOTE: generally a tank requires a total movement in L/h (gph) from 20x to 40x of its volume

E.g.
A 460L aquarium with MED density population = 2x M7200 (Advanced System Pack)

3. Multi-side flow?

It's much better to produce the water movement by more than a single point even if a pump can cover the whole tank volume.
This increases oxygenation, advantages coral life and eliminates dead spots.

NOTE: with multiple pumps you have a "backup pump" in chance one was stopped manually or accidentally

5. Get the best results from your tank with Waver

Consider:
- Tank volume 
- Aquarium population density (LOW- MED - HIGH)
- Quantity of rocks 
- Type of corals
- Type of tank management

NOTE: generally a tank requires a total movement in L/h (gph) from 20x to 40x of its volume.

NOTE 2: When powered with Waver, we do consider an average power % for suggested model calculation.

E.g.
For a 460L aquarium with MED density population = 1x Waver Master + 2x MX13400 (Advanced System Pack)

6. A Real Reef Simulation Experience

Let your aquarium live like in its real habitat with all the powerful features of Waver.
Choose whether to produce the flow patterns by a single spot or through multiple-side.
We do recommend to produce the water movement by more than a single point even if a pump can cover the whole tank volume.

NOTE: with multiple pumps you have a "backup pump" in chance one was stopped manually or accidentally
