    A powerhead is probably the choice you want as you said you wanted to stay on the cheaper size.  A powerhead is just a pump that pushes water straight ahead of it and nothing more, whereas a wavemaker will ramp up/down and use pre-programmed modes to simulate different wave patterns on the reef.
