Biocube 16: one wavemaker or two powerheads

Hey everyone. I'm looking to get some water flow in my new tank and have been looking till my eyes are crossed. I am thinking either a Jaebo (i've seen the debate) wavemaker or two hydor powerheads. What is everyones thoughts here? I don't want to overdo it but I don't want any dead spots. Anyone have specific experience?

In a 16g the small Jabao is enough, or if I want to spend the money the mp10, I’m using the Jabao for almost 3 yr n still working good in my 29g biocube n I never clean it. Look on the right side that’s where I have it at.

Go with the Jebao wave maker either the 10 or 25..... They work great and create more than enough flow.

Your tank will look to cluttered with 2 power heads.

I run single Jebao in a 13.5 and there is no problem with flow.

I just started a small bio cube and I’m running a koralia but I have an mp10 . Should I use the mp10 instead or would that be too much for a small reef like the biocube
