This microprocessor control system creates randomly flowing and ever changing water currents, similar to a natural coral environment. The effect the WaveMaster Pro creates in the aquarium is dramatic: not only corals, but also other aquarium inhabitants display their natural "bloom" and behavior.
The WaveMaster Pro offers several smart options and settings that make this device suitable for practically every marine aquarist and aquarium set-up. A distinction is made between the typical reef fish tank with few invertebrates (Marine mode) and the typical reef tank with predominant numbers of invertebrates (Reef mode).
The Reef mode facilitates feeding of invertebrates that live on suspended particles of plankton, by giving sufficent time to feed, without losing the food into the bio-filter or protein skimmer. The Marine mode facilitates feeding by the smallest as well as the largest fish by temporarily switching off all but one of the powerheads, while the main pump keeps running the water through the life support systems.
In nature, water currents become weaker during the night, and the WaveMaster Pro is able to imitate this period with its 8 hr. night program. This program switches automatically to a calmer motion at the time you have preset it to.
Different parts of the reef are characterized by differences in water circulation, which is also reflected in the species composition of a specific area. Depending on whether you wish to stimulate a gentle or more turbulent section of the reef or even a varying water motion, the WaveMaster Pro enables you to select from its 4 different wave programs (gentle, rolling, turbulent or alternating) for both the marine and the reef aquarium. Maximum power load up to 800 watts.

- Ensure that powerheads (and main pump) are positioned correctly in the aquarium and sump.
- Locate the WaveMaster Pro in a safe position either next to or under the aquarium.
- Connect the power cables of your powerheads and main pump to the four power outlets on the back panel of the WaveMaster Pro, (using drip loops).
- Connect the main pump (if applicable) to the outlet marked P4/MP and set selector switch to MP.
- Connect the power cable to a wall-mounted receptacle. Switch the WaveMaster Pro on using the power switch located on the back panel.
- On start up, the WaveMaster Pro will perform a self-test of all of its functions, indicated by the sequential lighting up of the indicator lights located on the front panel.
- Select the wave program of your choice in either Marine or Reef mode on panel.
