    How many wave makers should a person have for a 90 gal tank?? I have a 55 now but will soon be getting a 90, but I need to get wave makers right now I have 2 power heads running but they keep blowing bubbles into the tank?
    My other question is where is the best placement or dosen't it matter where you put them?

    You only need 1 wavemaker. It's a device that controls, turns on/turn off, powerheads.
    If you mean how many powerheads do you need, then it depends on which one's you want or are using. They should be placed at opposite sides of the tank pointing at each other.
    Where are your current powerheads getting the air from to blow the bubbles into your tank?

    +1 Capt. A wavemaker is a single machine that controls all your powerheads.
