No bigger than an egg and utilizing the latest in Sinewave technology, the Wavelink by Innovative Marine is a DC powered, controllable & energy efficient wavemaker that gives you the flexibility to change wave patterns on the fly without the need for computers, APPS, or purchasing additional modules.
Water flow is one of the single most important and overlooked basic necessities for any aquarium. In nature, reefs are accustomed to constant changing water movements and throughout years of evolution they have changed to benefit from it.
Proper water movement helps crucial gas exchange, removes damaging waste build up and stimulates beneficial fish and coral health. To simulate natural wave patterns we must understand the different kinds of water movement in nature: Laminar or Stream, Surging and Turbulant / Random Flow. Depending on what kind of livestock you have each one requires a specific type of flow that naturally occurs in the wild.
The general rule of thumb is 5 to 10 times the volume of water needs to move in your tank per hour… so if you have a 10 gallon tank you need to have 50 - 100 gallons moved.
