    How to make a wave

    Id like to get a wave going. 200g tank with two wav pumps on back wall about a foot from bottom facing about 30 degrees off side glass. Any chance?

    IF so, what's my programming for that?

    Thanks

    Any chance ...... no!!

    Of course, depends on what you mean by a 'wave'. If a natural oscillation back and forth, then no, home tanks are too small and all you get is a rapid, unnatural slopping back and forth.

    Don't know about the WAVs, but the Ecotech Vortechs should be positioned facing each other on opposite ends of the tank when trying to generate a wave.

    BTW, the WXM module is awesome for programming and wirelessly operating the Ecotech Vortech pumps (in many ways better than Ecotech's own software). But while the WXM supports almost all the Ecotech special flow features and modes, the one thing that isn't supported is the wave-making autotune. I never tried it out before I switched my 2 MP40s to Apex control, and at this point I'll have to be really bored before I get around to resetting them to internal control and trying to tune a wave.

    I was able to get an oscillating or standing wave using the Pipeline mode with no problem. I should have followed up sooner.

    Even with them angled the way you described? Neat!
