Vertex UF15 / UF20 Universal Media Reactors

Vertex UF line of Universal Media Reactors.
Crystal clear displays are always the goal of any aspiring Reef Hobbyist. As mainstays of the hobby, Activated Carbons and Phosphate Absorbing Medias go a long way towards the fulfillment of this goal by absorbing many of the impurities that accumulate in the water column. Incorporating these medias into the systems has traditionally been accomplished with the aid of filter bags and/or cartridges. However, this is far from being the most effective means of utilizing these products as the medias compact, flow-through declines and the surface area contact becomes compromised. Vertex™ Universal Media Reactors provide a practical solution by fluidizing the given medias, thereby eliminating the problem of compaction and allocating complete control of flow-through to the user.

The Brightwell Aquatics NeoZeo Method

Maintaining ultra-low (e.g. immeasurable) nutrient concentrations in reef aquaria and
precisely-controlling the inorganic and organic substances entering the system can
result in vibrant coloration of zooxanthellate corals and their allies. The method
described below can accomplish this task. It should be stated from the onset that this
method will only produce dramatic results if it is employed continuously, and as
directed (with slight adjustments made to dosing as dictated by the appearance of the
aquarium inhabitants). It is an interesting, highly-effective method of maintaining reef
aquaria that is without question geared to the more “hands-on”, experienced reef
aquarium enthusiast.

Red Dragon Deluxe Water Pumps - Product Profile

Red Dragon pumps are the most efficient centrifugal pumps for internal and external use available in the Aquatic hobby today! Using the highest quality components and patented technology they produce very high flow, and consume less energy than most competing products. The optimized pump head geometry combined with patented drive technology and start-up electronics enables the pump to produce a high flow with very low energy consumption. This will also ensure silent operation and no start- up issues, and with less heat generation. All RED DRAGON pumps are designed to use in ultra- silent ‘lifestyle applications’ where no noise is tolerated. Utilizing our patented Anti Calcium bypass technology, water is pushed from pump-head to the back of magnet to cool down the shaft, bearings and magnet. In return less calcification occurs, which increases the life of the pump and reduces the need for frequent maintenance. This feature is especially useful in SPS or other systems in demand of high Calcium or using Kalk dosing. Unlike other centrifugal pumps using Ceramic bearings, only the best quality Silicon Carbide bearings are used which will last much longer than other materials, and smoother contact between shaft and bearing will produce less noise. Models RD10 and RD12 also feature Titanium motor shafts, and ALL metal components used are high grade Titanium and absolutely saltwater resistant.
