Tunze TUNZE® Nano Wavebox

TUNZE® Nano Wavebox and Wavebox are suitable wave generators for all reef biotopes. They produce oscillating waves which produce water movement almost identical to reef zones. Nano Wavebox and Wavebox are controlled by means of Wavecontroller 6091, which utilizes the principal of resonance frequency to create wave motion. The resonance frequency is set on the Wavecontroller; it is the frequency, at which the waves can reach the maximum height in the aquarium. At very little power consumption, an enormous water movement is produced very efficiently. All of the water in the tank is in movement, which means that water also laps around areas behind stones.
In large tanks, a Wavebox 6212 and a Wavebox Extension 6212.50 should be fitted, the latter being a Wavebox 6212 without Wavecontroller 6091 which is used as an extension. Nano Wavebox and Wavebox can be fitted in any corner of the aquarium.

A special Wavebox pump is used as a wave generating pump, which belongs to the family of the Turbelle ® stream pumps. It pumps the water out of the box at a high speed. The Wavecontroller 6091 stops the pump after a short time; the water returns into the housing of the Wavebox.

The Wavecontroller 6091 controls the pump in such a way that switching on and off corresponds to a certain frequency. The frequency is determined when the unit is set up, which then remains constant. Given a strong growth of coral, this frequency should be re-adjusted after some time. In order to ensure night-mode operation, the Wavecontroller 6091 has been fitted with a photoelectric cell: In this case the Wavebox will be set to standstill for the night. The Foodtimer integrated in the Wavecontroller switches the Wavebox off when food is dispensed. The wave generation is interrupted for about 7 to 9 minutes to permit feeding. The break in wave movement whilst the fish are fed ensures that no food gets into the stone structures and that the fish can feed undisturbed by the wave movement.

Great even in a 180

REVIEW
I went with the nano over the larger wavebox because my tank is acrylic and I didn't want the stresses of the full wavebox. Within 30 minutes of installing I had about a 3/4" wave at the top and very nice alternating flow to my corals all the way at the bottom. Highly recommend the product and ...Read More

Nice

REVIEW
The Nano Wavebox 6206, is definitely making some nice 1" waves in my 55 gallon tank. I removed all powerheads and have pretty good current throughout the whole tank. It took me a little while to get the frequency adjusted, but it's actually pretty easy and waves will start immediately once you ...Read More

No at all what I expected

REVIEW
I had an original wave box and was quite happy with its performance in a 90 gallon tank. It didn�t last long because it was just too big for my taste and interfered with the overall look of my tank. So I took it out and just went with regular tunze multi controller and 2 tunze pumps. I downsized to ...Read More

Didn't work for me

REVIEW
First off, it's a fine product. However, for my 120g it just wasn't enough. I was able to get about 1/2" of wave going at the resonant frequency. I think part of the problem was that the nano is undersized for my tank--the larger wavebox probably would have worked better.I saw a nano in my f...Read More

tunze nano wave

REVIEW
Installed in seconds. Actually makes an one inch wave in a 54g. tank. Wave 2k creates more current but the tunze makes no noise and is much easier to install. Also the feed timer and night sensor work great eliminating the use of timers. Definitely would recommend this product
