    Saw that, however the whole cost of the project revolves around around being able to find a 6100 at $200 which he claims can easily be done "they're all over the place" but good luck in being quick enough to snatch one up at that price.

    I do love one of the comments in the section though, from person who obviously only knows about freshwater side of things :D

    Good point on the 6100 cost. I also didn't see him mention how he attached the box to the tank. DIY magnets?

    Id pay the extra money just to get a vortech for a wave, so I dont have a big box in the tank. =)

    You have two in your tank. Can you produce any wave with two of those??

    I havent played with it too much because im too impatient to keep adjusting and waiting for a minute each time, but I have made a 1 inch wave or so just playing around. Im sure I can get a little bigger if I tried. My tank is 6 feet long though so Im not going to get the giant wave like in this video.

    Im afraid of my tanks seems busting after a couple of years, so I just stick with Reef Crest mode.

    You can also find used Vortechs everynow and then now, so the cost difference between this project and a vortech isnt all that great.
