Thomas Reviews the Aqamai KPS Wavemaker Pump (Video)

    Hey Thomas! I have a 15 gallon freshwater tank, and have tried lots of different ways to keep the water aerated – airstones and tubes, that sort of thing. I'm using sand as a substrate which is making things even more difficult! I know that this pump isn't the answer, but is there something you could recommend that would be an effective and reliable way to keep my tank oxygen levels high, and that maybe looks cool too?!

    can you recommend something to rid discoloration. I have I 50 gallon tank and all the water I have available has sulfur; looking from the front you cant notice but from the sides it looks like I dumped pond water in the tank.

      Carbon! Lots of carbon, in a high flow area, or in your filter. Change weekly until it disappears 🙂

    Whoever your acting coach is, he/she deserves an award! You're so naturally expressive and on point with your personality like a truly gifted actor! Yes, I am very interested in this pump, but more so because of your amazingly entertaining review. Keep up the damn good work Thomas! Please try your gifted talents on stage or film, of course, in front of the camera.

    I'm digging the pump… hopefully Aqamai comes up with a way to link the pumps and not have one of those Wi-Fi pucks for every pump you own. ??

      Not a bad idea, but superglue worked really well. If it ever cracks again, I might bust out the iron and melt it back together!

      A pair of them would do a decent job, but you might want to skip the control-ability and head over to the Gen 3 Koralia(s) since they push more volume and will do a better job in a 4 foot tank.

      Thanks Thomas! Where would be the best placement for it? At either end towards the suface? Right now I have a mj 600 powerhead with a prefilter on it, at one end. I am thinking of attaching my seapora 136 sponge filter to it. So I still want something that will break up the surface tension and ciculate the water. Does this make sense?

      Jack D. Best placement really varies from tank to tank based on how much decor etc is in the tank. I usually suggest placing the pump on either end of the tank, about 6" below the surface, tilted upwards to the surface to create surface agitation which will increase gas exchange and therefore oxygen levels. 🙂

    I am looking for that exact pump… But I don't need the wifi, just small and controllable. Do they make one like that?

      The wifi is what makes it controllable. Otherwise it would need a controller attached to it which would really inflate the cost.

    Great vidéo ! Can you put a wavemaker In a freshwater aquarium ? Im thinking it would ave à great effect whit all my plants.

      Absolutely! Only thing to consider is that you will have more gas exchange and may degas CO2 faster with the extra water movement.

      coolwater411 its main purpose is for water circulation, but you could point it to the surface for surface agitation.

    @Thomas: In your video, you show the Android app for a moment. Did you actually tested the device using the Android app? I'm asking because it simply doesn't work. You can use Demo Mode only, but it's not possible to assign Sets to the pump.
