    Hello fishlore,

    I have a a 22 gallon long tank. I was wondering what gallon per hour wave make would be good for a few clowns and some coral? Should i get a wave maker with adjustable power? Thanks in advanced

    Maybe the Hydor Koralia 240 circulation pump?

    Welcome to Fishlore! :)
    What kind of corals do you have? It will help know what corals you have because some corals need a higher flow. I currently have a hydro koralia 425 in my Biocube 29 and my corals are doing great.

    I have no corals yet that's why I was thinking a adjustable one would be appropriate

    Oh yeah I misread your post :). I don't have experience with the wave makers, but I do with the koralia's. You can adjust them too. I think running 1 425 and 1 240 should be good for the tank.

    Is it better to have two of them?

    Two powerheads? Yes, in saltwater a lot of flow is best. The more movement in the tank the better, more flow will help get rid of any dead spots or debris on the live rock and sand bed
