Question: Can I plug up my Hydor Koralia Aquarium Circulation Pump to my wavemaker?
Answer: Yes and No. The original Koralia Circulation Pumps , as well as the Magnum variety, are not designed for use with a wavemaker of any kind. The variable input required for such a function is simply not compatible with their design, and usage as such will ruin the manufacturer warranty (not to mention ruin the pump).
On the other hand, Hydor has created a series of Controllable Koralia wave pumps and controllers for just this purpose. Though the controllers are only compatible with controllable Koralias, they’re still the buy you want if you’re looking for the wavemaking feature over just a circulation pump.
