Creating Motion in Captive Oceans
The Ocean Pulse Duo and Quadra are an innovative wavemakers that were specifically designed to replicate the natural alternating rhythms of tides and currents for home aquariums.

These wavemakers instantly create turbulent flow patterns with adjustable alternating cycle times from 10 seconds - 6 minutes. All models are equipped with an adjustable dial(s) for quick and easy set-up for virtually all types of inverts, corals, filter feeders and fish who will gain immediate benefits.

Always research specific flow requirements for individual animals before making adjustments.

Water movement is vital for the success of invertebrates, animals with symbiotic algae, filter feeders anf fish. The natural currents in the ocean bring random flow and wave cycle patterns that provide nourishment while suspending waste particles for filters to effectively trap.

Benefits of Replicating Wave Patterns
Recreating water movement is essential for captive animals within our aquariums for long-term success. By installing the Ocean Pulse Wavemaker you will immediately be rewarded, as you see you aquarium transform into a cleaner, healthier and more natural environment.

  • Provides oxygen rich water to entire aquarium
  • Provides more stable water temperature
  • Creates desirable turbulant flow patterns only found in nature
  • Flushes "dead spots" of detritus and accumulated waste
  • Increase fish activity
  • Stimulates coral and invertebrate growth
  • Allows corals more exposure to light
Note: Some pumps will not work with wave makers.

It makes waves.

Pros: Works well. Easy to use. Makes changing currents in the tank a breeze.

Cons: This is just being it picky but its one more thing to have to hide.

I got this because I had gotten a used JBJ 28 gal Nanocube and the wavemaker that was with it did not work. There are several reasons why I like this product. The biggest one is that it varies the flow in the tank. It prevents dead spots as well as providing the fish and coral different flow patterns. Another reason is that you can adjust the timing from pump 1 to 2. This is helpful if you want your tank to be more turbulent with fast changes or have one running for a few minutes before switching. The third reason is that you can turn both pumps on with a turn of a dial. This helps if you have a up your sand or the tank and want to clear it up quickly. It you have a dead spot and have some build up boom turn them both on and the debris is gone.

Works as intended

My wavemaker has been in use continuously for 2 weeks now and works exactly as it was intended to work. It has been reliable ever since I initially turned it on and I have not had any issues whatsoever. I works equally well with a high frequency intervals (10 sec.)as it does with low frequency intervals (6 min.). I definitely recommend this product as works equally well as with other high priced wavemakers I had in the past. You cant go wrong for the price.

move up

the controller does what it is supposed to, but it is a simple on/off switch. i am not sure if better power heads would handle that better, but my budget ones dont want to start smoothly at times after being switch off. the more expensive units would be a better choice i feel.

Amazing improvement!!!

My wife and I have had our nano reef in the current tank for about 1 year, and had a hydor powerhead with one of the cheap $10 deflectors on the end of it. This work very well, we were very impressed with how well all of our corals were doing with the "simulated waves". However, we continued to have some alge problems from dead spots in the tank, so we decided to order this wave maker system. Upon arrival the wave controler was not functioning properly, only allowing the waves to be produced at the 10 second or 4 min interval. I called up Customer Service and they sent out a replacement unit for me, and up recipet of that I then returned the defective one.So with everything hooked up and working properly, the powerheads make a huge difference in the tank. All of our Zoa's and Softies are doing amazing with the waves et at 60 second intervals. The LPS also like the new powerheads and wavemaker. IN the past two weeks our tank has been crystal clear, with no alge noted in the tank. This was a great buy, and have already reccomended this to a friend.

Works freaking great!!! Not quite as fancy as the other super overpriced brands, but does the job just as well. First week of use, and I can tell the fish and coral dig it. The right l.e.d. indicator doesn't light up all the way, but I thought, "Who cares?!?!?". Definitely a great product at a sweet price!
