BioGro 123

BioGro 123 is a new 3 part probiotic aquarium system that contains several strains of probiotic bacteria that will help reduce nitrates, phosphates and eat away detritus buildup in the aquarium.  BioGro 1 (BioGro Balance) contains 12 strains of bacteria that produce enzymes which are needed for stabile biological balance.  BioGro 2 (Nitrification) contains 14 strains of probiotic bacteria which enhance the nitrification process.  BioGro 2 contains Nitrosomonas, Nitrobacter, and Nitrospira strains.  To optimize this process, DVH has also added bacillus strains.  These bacillus strains work closely with nitrifying bacteria to help reduce nitrates in the aquarium.  BioGro 3 contains 9 strains of bacteria.  These bacteria remove the slow decaying sludge (detritus).  These bacteria remove the slowly decaying detritus that is a breeding place for pathogen organisms.  Decaying/Rotting detritus can release toxic gasses which can harm your fish and corals and can emanate bad smells from your aquarium.  All BioGro 123 bacteria are pathogen free and naturally cultivated.

Directions for Use:

Shake well before dosing!  Please turn off UV and/or Ozone for 1 day when adding BioGro.  You can dose all 3 steps at one time.  Dosage is based on a average aquarium but dosage can be higher or lower without any negative effects.  Keep away from children, do not ingest.  Please use within 6 months after opening.  Refrigeration after opening is recommended but not necessary. 

  • Start Dosage: 30ml per 50 g...

AI Wireless Adapter

The long awaited and much anticipated Aqua Illumination wireless adapters are coming to Aquarium Specialty next week and Aquarium Specialty should be one of the 1st companies in the US to get it's hands on the new adapters.  We will have 50 units (25 black and 25 white) arriving next week and orders will begin shipping the day they arrive.  Pre-Order yours now if you would like to get be get one from the first shipment.  We understand that we are getting the lions share of these since we preordered them early on.

About the Aqua Illumination Wireless Adapter:


  • AI Sol
  • AI Sol Nano


Eliminate the mini-dim cable from the controller to the fixture.  Improved controllability and functionality between the wireless controller and wireless adapter.  If you have multiple fixtures then you may want to consider using one wireless adapter for each module.  By doing so you will also eliminate the need to daisy chain the modules together and you will have the added benefit of controlling each fixture independently from one another.

Other Benefits:

  • Left to right or right to left sunset (multiple fixtures)
  • Cloud and storm effects left to right or right to left (multiple fixtures)

AI Wireless Adapter and Controller

Note: You will need the above independently Illumination wireless controller for the wireless adapter to work.  The old (push button) AI controller is not compatible with the wireless adapter.

Hydor Pro Canister Filters

The Hydor Professional External Filters are a new line of canister filters arriving from Hydor.  The Hydor canister filters feature a rectangular footprint and tight fitting filter baskets that force water through the media and not around it.  Hydor Professional External Canister Filters feature an improved efficient internal motor and added soundproofing features to make the canisters super quiet.

Pro Canister

One of the most attractive aspects of the Hydor Professional Canister besides the design, features and thought that went into building the pro series is the price.  Typically higher end canister filters cost much more and many of them don't offer any media to get started.  That is not the case with the Hydor Pro Canisters.  The canisters come with ceramic rings and filter pads but you will need to add your own carbon. The Hydor Pro Series come in 5 sizes.  Below are the specifications for each model.

Hydor Pro Canister Chart

Parts and replacement media pricing will be listed soon and we are waiting on that to come in from Hydor.

About Aqua-Crobes:

Aqua-Crobes is a biological product of natural occurring bacteria and enzymes that reduce the threat to fish caused by pathogenic bacteria. Through years of field and laboratory research the folks at DVH have developed a line of specifically formulated microbes for maintaining water quality, increasing growth rates and ensuring the health of your aquatic animals. Aqua-Crobes is a competitive excluder of pathogenic microbial diseases such as Vibrio, Pseudomonas, Aeromonas, Streptococcus, Allococcus, Myxobacterium, Columnaris and other gram negative bacteria. The way it works is by creating competition with negative bacteria by introducing bacteria to the water that is beneficial to the fish that live in it. This is a process known as competitive exclusion.  Aqua-Crobes competes with these pathogenic bacteria for the nutrients in the water that they depend on for their survival while waiting to attack your fish.  At the same time little peptides are produced that are t...

    So what is the RoboSnail and what can it do?  Well, let's start from the beginning.  Milan, the owner of Aqua Genesis and I began discussing his concept of th RoboSnail about 3 years ago.  After speaking to him, I realized it was going to probably take a lot more R&D to have the final production model ready so I kept in touch with Milan for the next few years hoping to one day have a prototype to test. Well, that day finally came about 5 months ago and we have been using the RoboSnail and putting it though it's paces ever since.

    As of this week, the production model is now available. Our current inventory is being offered at a special introductory rate of $299.00.  Once the current inventory is gone, the pricing will be $349.00 for the foreseeable future.

    About the Aqua Genesis RoboSnail:

    The RoboSnail™ was designed by an aquarium keeper for an aquarium keeper. It's a superior quality product that offers simplicity and ease for the aquarium enthusiast. 

    The RoboSnail is ideal for home use or in the business place.  Locations such as hotels, offices, and restaurants can each benefit and allow you to focus on the business at hand and not your dirty aquarium. RoboSnail saves you time and money.

    The RoboSnail is an automated glass cleaner that prevents algae build up on the aquariums surface. This is accomplished by the RoboSnail's unique ability to clean the aquarium's viewing panel once a day without user intervention. The constant preventative cleaning performed by the RoboSnail st...

    Flipper Mag

    The Flipper Mag's patented design creates the only aquarium cleaner that can FLIP from scrubber to scraper simply by rotating the handle. Complete cleaning without ever getting your hands wet! Each Flipper Mag includes two blades, one for glass surfaces (Metal blade) and one for acrylic surfiaces (plastic blade).

    Flipping is Easy once you know how, but it does require you to follow the instructions.  It's possible to flip in areas with low water currents and near the top of the tank where you have room to flip away from your rocks.  The Flipper Mag can be used on glass or acrylic tanks up to 12mm (1/2") thickness.

    The Metal blades are made with 316 stainless steel which is highly corrosion resistant. You can leave the Flipper Mag in your tank and the blade should last for months depending on your use. Bow-Front aquarium owners will also be pleased to know that the Flipper Mag is also compatible with bow-front aquariums.  The blade attachment is great for removing coraline algae and stubborn algae.  Click the video below to see the Flipper Mag in action but you might want to turn down your sound.  The accompanied music is pretty bad :-).


    FAQs from the Flipper Mag website:

    1) Is Flipping difficult?

    Flipping is Easy once you know how, but it does require you to follow the instructions (better yet, watch our flipping demo on this website.)

    Flip in areas with low water currents and near the top of the tank where you have room to flip away from your rocks.

    Cobalt Aquatics has recently announced the launch of several new products that will be hitting the market in the coming months.  Here's a list of some of them and what to expect from the company that sits about 60 miles to the North of us. Aquarium Specialty will be placing stock orders for the new products in the coming days and weeks.  Below are a few of the products with some details and pricing along with a timeline on when the new Cobalt Aquatics products will be released.

    Neostat Electrical Thermostat Control

    The Cobalt Aquatics Neostat can control up to a 500 watt heating element, but it’s a one-way heater controller, and as of now cannot be used to control a chiller. The Neostat has a range of 66F to 96F with highly visible and intuitive indicator LEDs that let you know the set temperature and actual temperature, as well as allowing for programming with the push of a single button.

    Even if you already have a heater with electronic temperature control, the Neostat adds an extra level of security should your heater’s built-in thermostat stick “on” and cook your livestocks. As someone who came from the I.T. industry, redundancy is best when it comes to keeping your prized fish and corals happy.  

    We expect to see a street price close to $115 and product should begin shipping at the end of March of beginning of April 2013.
