ReefLED ReefWave ReefDose and ReefClean from Red Sea
Red Sea opened at Interzoo 2018 with a bang. We were told in advance in Shangai (article), and we almost found it hard to believe, but the latest products were a lot and all very interesting.
For once, we weren’t just talking about the beautiful Red Sea all-in-one aquariums, which were there and looked very impressive. But after taking pictures and macros of the animals contained in the aquariums, we were received by Aviad Ben-Zekry, who guided us inside the big Red Sea booth, and introduced all the latest products to us and let us touch them firsthand.
Red Sea Net Cover
We’re talking about what we have already seen at CIPS, or that nylon cover net that sparked a debate in the last months. At the booth it was featured in all of the aquariums, and it surely is a solution that prevents an accidental jump of the fish outside the aquarium. Aquarists are divided not on its efficacy, that is necessarily at maximum, but on its visual and maintenance impact of aquariums.
Despite all of that, I think it’s a great idea, and for someone it will be a classical egg of Columbus, that will just eliminate the problem.
The new ReefClean skimmers
Red Sea introduced its new skimmers from the ReefClean line. Built in acrylic, they come in three different dimensions. Sicce pumps are on them, and for once the recommendation is a kind of aquarium based on what is contained inside. Therefore on an aquarium litres indication for SPS, for fish or mixed.
|SPS||Mixed||Fish||Pump||Treated air||Treated water||Dimensions|
|ReefClean||300 l||600 l||900 l||Sicce PSK-600||500 l/h||1000 l/h||18x25x53(h) cm|
|ReefClean XL||600 l||1.200||1.800 l||Sicce PSK-1000||750 l/h||1500 l/h||21x28x56(h) cm|
|ReefClean XXL||900 l||1.800||2.700 l||Sicce PSK-1200||900 l/h||2000 l/h||24x31x59(h) cm|
There’s an interesting groove in the glass that allows always seeing the foam inside the neck, even when what remains of the the glass fills up and gets dirty. A simple idea that we wonder why no one ever thought of before. You go, Red Sea.
The adoption of the new Sicce PSK pumps allows an averagely silent functioning, comparing to traded volumes. The skimmer is conical, with an internal pump to safeguard the space and the submerged exhaust pipe.
Red Sea ReefDose – the new dosimetric pumps
In the picture above you can see two of them using Red Sea products, that are part of the perfect method to manage a marine aquarium. A method that was developed by Red Sea in full, and which we’ll talk about in a future follow-up.
The 4-canal dosimetric have a 0,06 ml precision and can be set up to 24 doses per day. Everything can be controlled through the App.
The beautiful Red Sea aquariums
Let’s stop talking about accessories for a minute to see the gorgeous tanks set up at the booth by Red Sea.
