I was wondering if there was any way to do a DIY Wavemaker that can control 3 powerheads on a timer? I have seen them for sale at petsmart but they are more than I can afford. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

ime, timers are expensive... for powerhead, you generally need a three pronged socket (w/ a ground) and those timers at HD are around 10 bucks a piece, you'd need three...

this is from marinedepot.com, and it will run you $25.00 plus shipping and handling...

I plan on purchasing one of these sometime in the near future for the SW tank I'm slowly setting up. Not sure of how good it is, but it seems reasonable.

And I've got the coralife. It's very nice. Just needs one more daytime outlet Very Happy
