Default Tunze wavebox

Has anyone seen the new Tunze Wavebox 6212?
Any comments on performance?
Anyone know of anything that would do the same thing without the $500.00 price tag?
I have a 75 gallon tank with two AquaClear 50 powerheads and I'm not getting nearly enough water movement...

Have you looked into setting up a closed loop? That would get you a lot more flow without the price of a wave box, not to mention the size of a wave box. Check out Melev's closed loop design. I plan on making something similar for my 75 when I get it up and running.

If you saw the wavebox in action you would see why there isn't anything that even closely gets to it with out getting into the thousands.

The Alternatives: Like Symbiosis mentioned a closed loop design or a surge tank system or a wave maker with larger powerheads.
