Vertex Mocean 2000 Wave Maker
With the Vertex Mocean 2000 Wave Maker, you can create the most natural simulation of the ocean waves in your tank without sacrificing too much space or money. The secret is in the patented rotating motor. It allows you to create waves in any direction in your tank! The moving head continually rotates back and forth to the coordinates you preset. You can even let it spin 360 degrees over and over again. The rotating motor is designed to work with your current water pumps (including power heads). You select the amount of waves and strength yourself by using your current pump. You can simply use a more powerful pump to increase the water flow. The Vertex Mocean 2000 Wave Maker can handle up to 2000 GPH (1").

Random, chaotic flow patterns have an extensive recognition as an essential aspect of advanced reef husbandry, the results of its integration noticeably increasing the vigor of the reef’s inhabitants while greatly heightening the visual impact of the display. The Vertex™ Mocean 2000 is an innovative approach to natural wave simulation in Modern Aquaria – one that forefronts unparalleled adjustability and adaptability.
A COMPLETE FLOW SOLUTION
Unlike other wave simulation devices, the Vertex™ Mocean 2000 is uniquely capable of full 360° water dispersion at different speed settings, readily eliminating mono-directional water movement. The subsequent irregular flow freely decreases dead spots, mimics natural environmental flow patterns while improving the water quality and health of the captive biome.
- Up to 360° rotation, easily modifiable on-demand.
- Adjustable speed settings for maximum variability.
- Fully customizable programmability allows for limitless flow options.
- Multi size input fittings.
- Easy to install and operate.
- Modular capability allows for inline or oscillating power-head functionality.
- Adjustable mounting options.
- Main Body 4½" x 6¾" x 3½"
- Controller 5½" x 3½" x 1½"
- AC Main Power Input 90-220v, 50/60 Hz
- DC power Input to unit 5v, 1.2a and 12va
- Power Consumption @ 5v 0.48< AMP> 0.75
- Rated up to 2000 GPH inline-flow.

I brought the wavysea 3500+ for the same price of Vertex Mocean Wave 2000. I guess once Vertex put their name on it; they have to jack up the price. It has the same functions.
I would think they should at least include the 1" adaptor for the price they charge on the 3500.

So far, So good!

Works perfect so far. I love the fact that it rotates 180. I did have to mod the output to handle the high flow, but that was easy enough

I have been using the Wavysea units for about 4 years now. It looks like Vertex has got the rights to them now. The first ones I bought the motors would die after a few months. So I got a replacement 3.5 years ago and that one is still going. I bought a second 3 years ago and that one is also still going. Both have had no matinence done to them ever. The older one hums slighty and the newer one is still silent.
I'm glad to see another company pick up the product. I would give it 5 stars but there are two things I don't like. The first, in a power outtage it can siphon alot of water back to the sump. So to fix you need to drill a small hole just under the surface. Secondly, I would like to see the 90 degree exit elbow changed to something that can be adjusted up and down.
Overall a great product.

In my reef tank I wanted to go for a clean look so I dont' have a hood and went with one return. After 2 weeks I noticed many dead spots even with my powerheads. I hesitant to buy this product because of the cost, but now I'm very happy I did. It's amazing to see how well it covered the tank. I also like the fact that you can use either 3/4" or 1" tubing. The other thing I like is that you can set the angles. With other products, you're stuck with 90 degrees of movement. With this you can rotate 360 degress if you'd like.

Hope this one will work

This looks identical to Wavysea.
I have both Wavysea and Seaswirl for years. The quality of Seaswirl is very reliable, Wavysea had many quality problems and went under, but I like the design and function of Wavysea much better than Seaswirl.
It needs time to tell whether this is a better one and whether the new supplier will stand behind their products.
