Wavemakers and oscillators are water surge devices used in aquariums to simulate the natural wave motion of the ocean. Simulating this movement promotes oxygenation, enhances the tank's environmental conditions through water circulation, and provides other benefits such as bringing food "to" corals and other sessile invertebrates. From simple directional water pumping powerheads, to programmable electronic units that can be timed at set intervals, here are our top picks in wavemaking

Another creative solution to the issue of randomized water movement is the use of some sort of mechanized return system. One of my current favorites is the Sea-Swirl. This device attaches to the back of the aquarium and oscillates the return from your main return pump or closed loop pump back and forth once every minute. Although these units are somewhat expensive, they do solve many of the problems that wave makers have.
