Interzoo 2018: Amtra with battery aerator, led refractometers and more
This refractometer can work in the dark
Here there is what was missing among the aquarium accessories. And here’s the second product that can proudly be defined like that: a led refractometer. Amtra called it (we have to say, with a little effort of imagination) LED optical refractometer. Practically, as we already know, a refractometer has to be oriented towards a source of light in order to work. The new refractometer incorporates a led that allows the use with every lighting condition. Useful especially at night.
The refractometer is obviously ATC, that is with the automatic compensation of temperature.
Amtra thanks to the cooperation with Giacomo Guarraci of ITAU had many aquariums on show in its booth.
And what you can see here above it’s a simple aquarium, even if it has very important dimensions. It’s decorated with water plants and beautiful angelfishes and it catches the eye with its simplicity.
Different dimensions, same designer, Giacomo, but the result doesn’t change even with this minimal Dutch aquarium.
And here’s another one, more interesting, asymmetrically set up, with a lot of free space for the swimming of fish.
This set up is simple but has a lot of punch, and also it makes the background of the aquarium stand out.
Another simple set up, that, enriched by the scenery, shows us a captivating aquarium in its linearity. It an aquarium easy to manage, but not less interesting for this.
PH and TDS indicators
Fresh on the market are also the new indicators of pH and TDS in a pen shape for a more practical use in aquarium.
I didn’t know that Amtra was distributing even osmosis systems. They’re simple cartridge systems, that every aquarist should incorporate in its own system. In fact, if we think about it, aquariums contain water, and if the water weren’t good would have many problems that in a short time would become unmanageable.
We met Davide during the explosion of the aquascaping phenomena, and some other accessories that we’ve seen in the booth remind us his first love.
There were three different types of skimmer in the booth. The first one is an hang-on skimmer, in the following picture.
It is very interesting because it one of the few skimmer on the market for small aquariums.
All the other products
Electric return pumps, and inner filters.
Vent for the cooling of the aquarium, with incorporated LED for lunar light as you can see in the following picture.
