does it look like the motor is outside and it spins the fan in the tank through the glass.
FRD you know what I'm thinking:)
Mo that is exactly what I was thinking....

very nice...345 dollars...guess you get what you pay for....they said it can go in 10 gallon tank...its adjustable, w/36 hour battery backup...how big is the hole that needs drilled...1 1/2 inch..i didnt see that anywheres..

mo it looked as though the motor went through the glass you could see the shaft going through the glass...so u need to be drillin...

no, it uses magnets. there is no hole in the tank
i was thinking of how to do a diy but i think it is too complex, they have built a special motor that can be used on a flat surface, so i couldnt recreate that.
if it works like the tunze pumps then it is worth the money

No, I think that it was powered by magnets.. and held there by friction pads. I don't believe you drill anything at all.
I've been looking for a wavemaker, or something... there's so many.. oceans motions, squirt, maxijet wave system, tunze stream, this...
I really wish I didn't have to have all the powerheads... In my 30 gallon they definitely take up space. :(
And now I'm even more trying to figure out what would be best because... after researching all the breakthroughs of goniopora care for the last year... I finally got one.
Its polyps aren't coming out all the way. After messing with the flow for the last couple days, and even drastically cutting the flow on the coral... it seems like it only likes flow coming from *one* direction.
So hard to get all this stuff worked out.
man that tech is old school but evolved
i had an old hang on filter that worked the same way
id have to see one in use and see how long it actualy functions
