Ideal for leeches, nudibranchs, sea slugs, sea urchins and other aquatic invertebrates, these freestanding rectangular systems are currently available in several distinctive configurations.
In terms of research tanks, these refrigerated specimen tank holding systems are top notch.
Flow rates are factory preset, so no adjustments are necessary. A bi-level water skimmer removes bottom and floating debris from each holding tank and delivers it to the BIO-Wheel® filtration module (located in the one-piece molded sump), where the water is filtered mechanically, chemically and biologically.
Our BIO-Wheel filtration module provides a simple, yet superior solution to three-stage system filtration. Easy to install, easy to maintain, it significantly reduces labor cost while dramatically increasing filtration efficiency.
As water enters the module, waste is mechanically trapped by a poly-fiber prefilter pad. The carbon filter pack contains Black Diamond® premium activated carbon for chemical filtration, efficiently adsorbing dissolved organic compounds.
Passing through the filter media trays, water flows onto the BIO-Wheel wet/dry biological filter mounted below. Because system flow causes it to rotate, the BIO-Wheel is constantly exposed to both water and air, thus developing a thriving culture of aerobic nitrifying bacteria.
Once filtered, water is directed by the system’s high-output recirculation pump to the ultraviolet (UV) disinfection unit and 1000-watt submersible titanium heater and then back to the holding tanks.
