Re: [APD] Wave maker
I think it will look cool but not beneficial in terms of plant growth.
One of the benefits of wavemaker in reef tank is to make
"random" current so detritus does not settle in a dead spot, and
can be removed by a protein skimmer or consumed in a refugium
In a plant tank mulm is supposed to be good.

nutrients and fish like water movement. I can set it that it works more like
a river type current. The fish in there are from areas where the added water
movement would benefit them.

just wonder if one would notice an improvement in general health in the
