Tunze

Tunze Wavebox 6215 is a wave generator for aquariums from 52-317gal (200-1200L). It is specially suitable for reef biotopes as it generates an oscillating current. The current corresponds exactly to the wave structure and water movement in reef top zones. The Wavebox applies this oscillating principle through Wave Controller 6091, which uses the intrinsic resonance of the tank. A very low power consumption generates ideal water movement. The water is in movement in all areas of the aquarium, even the smallest section behind a decoration benefits from the wash. Magnetic holders now make the Tunze 6215 even more stable in your aquarium

NOTE: Products are sold in 110V conversions. Please verify your country’s volt conversion before making any electrical purchase.

disapointed

I bought 2 of these units within 2 months of installing them, 1 went dead now I have to pick down my rock work, & pick apart the pump to send photos to Tunze, so they can see what is going on this is a real annoyance

It's ok

Came with the wrong power cord, and for a 210 gallon reef I think it's not enough to really do a good job of making waves! Maybe with two it would be better but at the price and footprint size I'm not a fan!

Tunze Wavebox 6215

I have had my wave box established for about 6 months in a 180 gal reef tank. I would rate performance excellent. The wave box is vary durable i like the photo electric sensor as it shuts down when my timer on my lights turn down to night leds at night. setting this wave box up took 15 minutes, it was not difficult to set up.

get what you pay for

This (like everything Tunze I have bought) works exactly like they say it does. It is very expensive, and finicky to dial in. Be slow and fastidious. However, everything in my tank immediately liked it. My fish are out more, my polp extension is killer. I have a total elimination of dead spots (you will be surpised how much crap this kicks up when you first start it up, even with good flow in your tank) Be wary of the needed depth for this. Because I have an acrylic tank, the bracing makes me post this unit lower than it should be in the water column. I have one setting on which it works, but you may have none. It is also large. I can tuck it into the back corner of my 180, but in a narrower tank, it might be obtrusive.

Unbelievable

I know, this piece of equipment is costly, but for a reason. This product does exactly what it claims it does and it is truly amazing to watch this thing in action. Definetly gives your reef a more natural look and everything in your tank gets the benefit of this wavemaker, everything. If you have the money, buy this product. You will not be dissapointed. The customer support is outstanding and they will walk you through on how to set up and dial this thing in step by step over the phone.

Excellent Product

I bought the Tunze wavebox about 9 months ago and I haven't had a problem with it. It produces crazy waves. I have a 200 gallon tank that is 6ft. long. If you look at the top of the water line, the water is bobbing 2 inches up and down. You have to spend about 5 minutes getting the right surge for the wave, but after you get the correct movement, then you don't have to touch it again after that. This wave action gives a the whole tank a surge of water forward and then backwards which is really nice in keeping dentrius from building up. I happen to have a very high bio load, so not all dentrius is removed, but most of it is. While the wave it produces is strong, it is not damaging to the coral. The coral look very natural with the wave movement. The only thing I would change would be the look of it. It is a big piece of equipment that is in your tank and it should stay in the middle of one end of the tank making it challenging to hide. I did place some colt coral in front of it which hides it a little. Currently it is covered in coraline algae which makes it look a little better, but it is still an eyesore. Also, it is hard to clean the tank around it because it is so big. It does come with brackets that are great if you have a glass tank, but probably will scratch a plastic tank. I have mine attached to magnets which holds in place nicely. If you don't mind the look of it in your tank and you want some serious waves, then I would get it. The plastic does feel a little flimsy, but I believe it is designed that way in order to get the best wave action with the least amount energy used. Although it may feel a little flimsy, it is strong and durable. I have had it in my tank for 9 months and have moved it around and cleaned it once, and I have never had an issue.

works great

I have a 240 gallon reef setup and this thing moves water! dont know why the other person had problems. One thing to note, dont buy the extra 2 magnets to mount, they already come with them. Had it unboxed mounted and dialed in in less than 20 min.

wavebox

After trying to get it to work for about 4 hours with no luck I was very discouraged, especially given the price. One day after almost 9 months of the initial set up I decided to try again, and much to my surprise it worked! So here is the deal, if your tank is not square (like mine) placement will be key. When trying to get the wave frequency right very, very small adjustments and some time (3 min to be safe) in-between those adjustments will help you get it right. Trust me if you do it to fast you may have the right frequency but not give the wave enough time to balance out and you will never know it. I’m not giving it five stars because setup was difficult in my circumstances, but the thing does work!
