Interzoo 2012: The Elos booth


Continuing our comprehensive reportage about Interzoo we arrived at the hall 4 where we met the Elos booth. Pictured below from left are distinguished Zanna Bianca (White Fang), AndreaNegu, me and the owner of Elos, dr. Nicola Gandini that cheerfully greets us.

As always the Elos booth has been full of news and it was a pleasure to photograph everything we could. The design of Elos products is, like always, linear, simple and extremely appealing. As we have already written on the occasion of our editorial, we look at maturity of this company and his desire to innovate that seems to be part of his DNA.

Elos Evision Tempo and LedDimmerBox – our preview and video


We had a preview of the new Elos System E-Vision we promptly tried, a beautiful and captivating system in its version with touch controls, but simple, versatile in its version just based on Elos Tempo and Elos LedDimmerBox.

For this first test we wanted to focus only on using the Elos Evision LedDimmerBox and the Elos Tempo and using them on Elos EliteXP Color so to better understand not only the dimming performance but also the  power of mixing the various channels.

World premiere: The Teco E-Chill is here. How setting in this incredible video by DaniReef


Thanks to the kindness of Teco, I have in my home right now the first E-Chill intended for consumers, who have followed me live on Facebook was able to comment live preview of my first photos put online, but now we are here with a great video explaining the installation of E-Chill well as its setting. As usual, it’s worth seeing the video in high resolution.

You can watch live how versatile is and how simple is to put it on your tank.

Over the next few days then I intend to do all the necessary measurements, especially consumption, since they are declared only 14 watts for 150 mc/h, and noise, and to put it in direct comparison with tangential fan, and maybe with the normal cooling fans that are usually used in the aquarium, and of course all my usual comments… continue to follow us…

How to deal with a changing tank without problems. Chronicle of a special day.


Changing the tank is a procedure that virtually all aquarists have done at least once in their life, or that in any case, they will do sooner or later .

The reasons are various but the most classic is certainly an upgrade especially in terms of available space, or to switch from one tank, adapted to be a marine aquarium, to one specifically made to be marine aquarium. Or for drastic reasons such a tank that is threatening to break.

In all these cases the important thing is to act very quickly, so that the water change could be done quickly and in a day. Taking advantage from my experience we had in April 2007 together with friends of AcquaPortal, I would try to draw an ideal protocol to be prepared in those agitated moments. To do this I will use many pictures and also several videos that we shot in that hectic day.

I begin by saying that I was totally lost… and then I can only thank all friends of the forum who came to help me. Without them I would not have accomplished the task, and thisi is also the reason for this guide, to help everybody to do it better. So a special applause goes mainly to them (in alphabetical order): Adp80 (Simone), Lumaz (Giorgio), MarcoAP (Marco), Max (Massimiliano), Mbenassi (Matteo), Pfft (Andrea), Zanna Bianca (Maurizio!) Thank you all guys!

Since we have to make a tank change we have to have ready all the equipments of the new tank, and especially the new tank and new support as well as all the equipment that we could change into our transition from one aquarium to another. In my case I changed tank, sump, calcium reactor and cabinet. Beyond that is a good idea to have at least a couple of teflon tape and a pack of Tangit, if the new tank will be glued PVC pipe like this you’ll see.

One aquarium inside our TV!


Almost two years ago, after publication of my tank on Aquaportal Magazine, italian Editor Edizioni Master contacted me to write an article about creating a dvd with aquarium film.

So I did a video of my old tank, we was on 2007, and it was attached as dvd on Digital Home Magazine.

My tank was a couple of months after changing the tank, so it was not so good, but I think it worth a look

Good vision 🙂
