I have the stronger wave pump on the side, right up near the surface and close to the front of the tank. This gives the surface water a nice ripple which makes the lights shimmer.where did you put the stronger wave pump? i put mine on the side and it seems to stir up/move sand because it crosses with the return pump's flow.
I also have no substrate so don't have to worry about sand When i first set up the tank i had bad algae issues that i just couldn't get rid of. after 6 months of battling, i took out the substrate entirely and bought my own RO/DI unit (rather than purchasing from water store). Algae was no longer an issue and i have just stuck with the bare bottom look.
