Aquarium Systems’ AQUARIUM range provides top of the range systems dedicated to the most demanding of aquarists. The AQUARIUM tank is made of extra-clear glass, which not only gives it an elegant design, but also makes the aquatic decor appear in more natural, more vivid colours. The cabinet, with its clean lines, is water resistant. Adjustable feet are provided to ensure optimal levelling of the AQUARIUM. The tank rests on a foam mat to protect the glass.
The XXL filtration system fitted to the AQUARIUM guarantees excellent water quality and offers the aquarist various options. Its volume represents nearly 30% of the system’s total volume (aquarium + filtration system). Therefore, the user is given the option of installing a refugium*.
The filtration circuit: the water sucked in on the surface is delivered to the sump via the down-flow valve. The first stage of filtration is mechanical and is made of two 200-mm filter socks that have the job of straining out any impurities. The second compartment houses the skimmer and other reactors. The third compartment offers the aquarist the option of installing a refugium* in order to optimise system filtration and balance. Finally, the last compartment is designed to house the sump return. A water reserve connected to the pump compartment automatically compensates the water level in the system. Water is returned into the main aquarium via two water outlet nozzles. Homogeneous circulation is thus guaranteed. All connection accessories are delivered with the AQUARIUM.
*A “refugium” is a kind of “secondary” aquarium connected to the “main” aquarium. It is generally devoted to growing beneficial macroalgae and flora and fauna that
consume nitrogenous waste (nitrates and phosphates). A refugium can also be used to stabilise the overall pH in the main tank and the refugium. This natural filtration method improves the biological, physical and chemical balance of your system.
