PostSubject: Boyu wave maker WM-2   Fri Mar 19, 2010 2:20 am

Well i purchased a boyu wavemaker wm-2

This is a wave maker with a controller for under ?60 and ideal for smaller tanks

it arrived with instructions in english and chinese (or japanese) and was pritty simple to figure out

the actual unit is well made with access to both front and rear sections of the pump via a pull off cover the impellor shaft is ceramic and the actual unit seems well built and solid

the power supply is rather large tho and comes with a 2 pin/blade plug which i changed to a uk plug

the controler is a simple design which uses dials for the setting's i have the wm-2 which is the uint for a single pump their are other variations of the controller depending on which model you go for (wm-3, wm-4)

over all with a cost of ?58 imo it is a very good unit and has a flow of 3000lph so isnt much more than the equivilent korallia also the unit is silent in operation their is no nosie from it at all

here is a video of it in use

Hi kbekl....That looks a fancy piece of kit you've just got yourself, ive never owned Saltys but they've always fascinated me. I was always going to set up a tank but never got round to it because quiet simply my bottle would go with all these expensive fish in there.

So I'm kinda a Salt Virgin so to speak, am I right in thinking that the wave maker will recreate a more natural habitat for your fish ?

that is correct it makes the tank have a more natural flow bit like the waves

salty side is as expensive as you make it

ok you cant get fish for under 5 but their are some lovly fish for 5-20

its not just the fish that make this hobby have a read here and see what you think

the expensive side is the setup but other than that thier isnt much difference in the maintainace

Jeeez kbekl, after reading that I think i'll just stick to looking after my lovely cat.

Seriously though, most of the salt water variety are truly stunning, the colours are amazing so they are, although I got rid of my tanks the interest still remains. I cant seem to walk past a fish shop without popping in for a wee nosey around but to be honest it was becoming a real chore for me. I work long hours and when I come home the grand children are usually hanging around waiting on there Mum picking them up, so ive got enough on my hands to keep me bizzy.

The last set up I had was a Discus tank (Vision 260) with a sand bottom and to be quiet honest the sand was really hard to keep clean, I was for ever hoovering it until I stripped it down and replaced the sand with gravel.

I was looking at your other tank photos and there well cool, especially like the cabinet.

Anyways hope you get on .o.k. with your new product and if it recreates a more natural habitat for your fish then thats an achievement......Well Done You...........

Oh...Btw, this is the cabinet I was talking about....
