  • (4) Cooling Fans
  • (2) 266 gph Accela Pumps
  • removable transparent filter basket (for easy refugium conversions)

  • Designated protein skimmer column (sold separately)
  • (4) Nite-Vu LEDs with their own power supply.

HQI Illumination

We are proud to offer the most intense illumination system out of the box, boasting a whopping 5.25 watts of power per gallon. Combined with our new German Parabolic Reflector, it cast sparkling, shimmering rays from every corner of the aquarium. Definitely the choice for hobbyists who intend to keep hard corals, sps, and clams.

Nite Vu LEDs are strategically placed on all four corners to evenly distribute moon lighting throughout the aquarium. All LED's are pre-wired individually with its' own male plug for easy replacement. Consumes less than 1 watt of power, but strong enough to illuminate nocturnal behaviors.

Integrated Cooling System

The secret to our cool running top is our artistic canopy which houses an efficient aluminum heat sink for fast heat dissipation. All canopies are made from Flame Retardent ABS Plastic. The 4 cooling fans automatically turn on/off with the main lighting system. A thermal protector is also added to automatically shut of the lighting system in the event the fans fail, it will automatically turn back on once temperatures reach safe conditions.

Easy Feeding

New feeding lid is lighter than the previous full front lid. Grants quick and easy access for feeding and retrieving water samples without lifting the entire hood.

Smart Filtration

The filter starts as water enters the center overflow. The water is directed into our 3-Stage Filter Media Basket, which is installed with a mechanical sponge, chemical activated carbon, and biological ceramic rings.

Our unique 3-Stage Filter Media Basket can host a variety of chemical medias to suit your needs. Cleaning is especially easy, since all you have to do is lift up on the basket handle and watch the water drain out the bottom for a simple and dry filter change. All baskets have a sliding door for added convenience.

Nothing To Hide

Our newly redesigned filter basket is now transparent for easy refugium conversions. Simply add macro algae (eg. Chaeto) into chamber one and chamber two. We recommend leaving the activated carbon in chamber three with a small piece of the mechanical sponge before the water exits to prevent algae clogging pumps.

Creating Motions in Captive Oceans

Our redesigned Ocean Pulse Duo now incorporates a memory chip for flawless performance after a power failure.

Your wavemaker creates turbulent currents for a more natural reef environment. You can set it from 10 seconds to 6 minute alternating cycles. Water is returned via (2) directional return nozzles on each side of the center overflow for even natural currents.

Tank Stand - Contemporary Design

Our 2nd generation stand is the perfect complement to our 28g Nano Cube Aquarium. It offers a chiller storage compartment with pre-installed side vents for needed airflow and a shelf for storage. This contemporary design lifts the aquarium off the pedestal with 4 chrome cyclinders to showcase your living reef.
