Reef Life Support Systems WavePuck

Daniel Nguyen and the guys at Reef Life Support Systems (RLSS) have been working on an exciting new wave maker device known as the WavePuck.  Slightly smaller than a hockey puck, this is the 1st public viewing of the 3D printed prototype.  I first had a sneak peak at the device this past September at MACNA in Washington, DC  but until now I had to keep this information under lockdown until now. Daniel, the owner of RLSS in Canada, has developed a low profile magnetic pivotal wavemaker. At a nominal 1.5″ thick x 3″ footprint, it is now the lowest profile wavemaker device of its kind. Today RLSS announced plans to produce 4 models of the Wave Puck with the 1st model generating a maximum flow rate

Julian Sprung has released two new products labelled as “ReMag” and “CorAffix Little Pro” under the Two Littles Fishies brand.

(4kg) and 44 lb. (20kg) containers.
