The Marine-Pac 3 is an all in one module that fits into the back section of the stunning Fluval Edge™ II aquarium and converts it into a high performance nano reef tank. Unrivaled in its amazing styling and design the Fluval Edge™ is the only tank available that presents the viewer with a cube of water visible from every side. The attractive compact design fits into any contemporary home and is suitable for cultivating advanced corals, delicate reef fish, anemones and other invertebrates. It allows you to bring a micro-habitat of the Great Barrier Reef into your own home or office.
Purpose built for the nano aquarium the Mame Design™ skimmer is a beautify hand blown glass protein skimmer from Japan. The Mame Design™ skimmer effectively removes dissolved organic waste from the aquarium and expels it into an external waste collection vessel for easy removal.The skimmer reduces ammonia and nitrate levels by removing organic waste from the water before it can break down any further. This allows for less frequent water changes, the ability to keep advanced corals, and crystal clear water. The air powered skimmer also has the advantage of aiding gas exchange in the tank and gassing off excess CO2 which is very important because of the enclosed top of the Fluval Edge™ II. Rated for tanks up to 28 Gal the Mame Design™ skimmer makes quick work of waste in the small 12gal Fluval Edge™ II expelling up to 150ml of brown skimate each week.
The Marine-Pac 3 installs without modification to the tank maintaining the minimal yet elegant lies of the Fluval Edge™ II The design ensures that everything is completely hidden from sight creating a pure cube of water uninterrupted by any equipment. The large EHEIM™ compact 600©. pump even eliminates the need for a separate circulation pump in the tank. This means you see no equipment in the tank at all, no lights, heaters, pumps, nothing. Even the inlet/outlet is discretely mounted in the tank’s neck for a super clean look.
