Wavemakers create randomized water currents in an aquarium to simulate conditions in the ocean and can eliminate â??dead spotsâ? in your aquarium by flushing out detritus and accumulated waste.
Some work by turning powerhead off-and-on or increases and decrease the flow rate to create a random flow throughout the aquarium. Others will oscillates the water return line from your return pump or closed-loop system.
A third type of wavemaker is submerged inside the aquarium and pulls water into and pushes water out of a compartment within the unit, producing gentle wave action within the aquarium
