Comments: Very easy to use.The only bad thing is the powerhead cords plug in to the front of the unit. would be much better if they would plug in the back. Power cord in back and 4 cords in front!

Comments: Great product! I just put my stuff together (4 koralia 3 + wavemaker) and my corals look pretty great, they are loving it already. I should have bought it before.
Thank you Koralia!!!!

Comments: It is an easy product to set up. Cheaper than it's competitors. For a reason. I bought the 2-way controller with the Koralia 4's which I think were the biggest available at the time for a 120 gal SPS tank. Barely noticeable effect. I saved up and replaced them with Vortech MP-40's which are ridiculously priced, but well worth saving up for. Just put the Koralia system on a 20 gal experimental non-photosynthetic coral tank. They don't even maintain the same water movement in a 20 gal as the Vortechs do in a 120 gal.

Comments: I bought the two way unit with Koralia 8's. Cords from the magnum 8s to the wavemaker is like 6' ft so it's adequate for bigger tanks. The 8's are the size of a large orange or grape fruit.
My first test in a 4'x3'x17" is that it's too powerful (wasn't meant to be for this tank). It's going into the in progress 8'x4'30" tank.
But in the 4'x3', I had to turn the maximum at only 1/4" turn from minimum and it had the sand going everywhere.
Once I've put it in and set it for 2 sec changes, the fishes (tangs/triggers/angels) where in the middle of the tank trying to ride the wave. They seem content with it.
It doesn't really produce waves -ala Vortechs, but does an okay job at making back and forth currents.
With the total of $500 I've spent, I could of pony up another 200 for the Vortech MP60, or get two MP40s -but I think this will do what I want it to do for now.
Pros: Dead silent. Can't tell they are on unless I'm looking at the debris or fishes swaying in the tank.
Okay to good cost to performance ratio - moves a lot of water.
Cons: Not really waves such as a wavemaker or Vortech MPxx series (but they are finicky and loud at times).
THIS IS WAY COOL !

Comments: Delivered on a friday at 5 pm, hooked up and working before 6. Yes, it is that easy to set up ! My corals really like the back and forth waves and have opened up larger than ever. GREAT PRODUCT ! A little pricey but worth every penny !
