Interzoo 2018: Tunze astonishes with an algae reactor and new bacteria


Tunze Automatic Doc Skimmer 9460

Interzoo 2018: lo schiumatoio gigante Automatic Tunze Doc Skimmer 9460Another object that captured our attention was the monstre skimmer. For the first time Tunze produces a skimmer of these sizes and a more moderate cost compared with the competition.

We’re referring to the Automatic Doc Skimmer 9460.

It can treat until 5.000 l/h of air with just 58 watt of consumption. An enormous beast that should be around 2.000 euro of costs. It sure is a more affordable price compared with the solutions proposed by other producers.

Sure it would be interesting to have an aquarium in which the skimmer could be tested and compared to other models, in order to analyze its performance.

The characteristics are similar to the Tunze Doc Skimmer 9415 we reviewed some year ago: the automatic calibration, the overflow blocked by the particular construction, the filtering of the water and so on.

Notice the double drain.

We liked very much this Automatic Doc Skimmer 9460 but, considering that we don’t have an aquarium where it’s possible to test it, probably it will remain just a dream.

The new incredible bacteria “Care Bacter”

Interzoo 2018: i nuovi batteri Tunze Care Bacter

Tunze emerges in the market of bacteria with a product that seems to be incredibly revolutionary. Care Bacter in fact seems to have a number of bacteria 10 times higher than the competition.

And in the end Tunze Care Panes

Interzoo 2018: Tunze Care Panes per la pulizia dell'acquarioWe’re talking about a product in a bottle with a nebulizer for the cleaning of the glasses of the aquarium, but it’s also for acrylic or metal or any other material our system is made of.

Tunze Care Panes contains very powerful organic surfactant, even 500 times the chemical surfactants, that can massively act on materials. The product isn’t toxic, as you can see from the absence of the symbol on the package. It’s good to know that the materials used for both the package and the product are completely eco friendly, that is they don’t harm the environment.
