Now that I've decided on my lights, its time to focus on flow.
Current setup - 120 gal (48 x 24 x 24). Running 2 Tunze Turbelles (model 6125 - 3170 gph) and 1 Koralia (1050 gph). These pumps are all just a year old but I would like to incorporate a wavemaker into my tank so I have the ability to change the flow patterns and eliminate any dead spots in the tank.
Three options I'm looking at are
1 Vortech MP40 or
Tunze Deluxe Multi Controller using the two pumps I have or
Coralife Wavemaker 5800 (using the Koralia magnet sets). I would probably have to use one the tunzes with it?

Would the Vortech and the two tunzes be too much in my tank and would the tunzes defeat the objective of creating different flow patterns?
