Avast Marine Dosing Tube / Probe Holder

Avast Marine, the makers of all types of innovative aquarium devices and gear, have come up with a great new product.  We are not sure if they have come up with a catchy name like their swabbie self cleaning head, or self shaking Vibe Zeovit reactor but we are calling it the "Better Than Sliced Bread All-In-One Magnetic  Dosing Tube / Probe Holder".  The magnetic combo dosing tube / probe holder features removable rubber inserts that allows the user to switch to and from using the holder as a dosing tube holder or an aquarium controller probe holder.  Another nice feature is that the back of the magnets feature a thin grippy rubber backing that prevents the magnets from easily slipping out of position.  As you can see from the picture above, the magnetic holder will hold up to 4 dosing tube lines or 4 standard aquarium controller probes.

Back side of the magnet:


All-in-all this might be the best and well thought out magnetic probe or dosing tube holder that we have seen to date.  For more information abut pricing and availability click the link.

Ecotech + AI

Ecotech Marine and Aqua Illumination are merging the two companies together to form one dominate force in the aquarium industry.  Both Aqua Illumination and Ecotech Marine are considered by many to be the best LED lighting companies available in the aquarium industry.  What does this merger mean to you?  Well here is what we know so.

The partnership between Ecotech Marine and AquaIllumination will provide endless opportunities for development and innovation beyond what each company already provides as individual companies.  Each brand will remain a separate entity and continue to manufacture distinct product lines, but the shared ownership will allow each of us to improve and grow.

FAQs

Is either brand being dissolved?
No, both brands will remain independent. This exciting merger is designed to capitalize on the operational and infrastructure advantages that result from the merger of two US based manufacturers. Product lines and branding will remain separate and occur at the separate Iowa and Pennsylvania facilities.

Will EcoTech products be sold under the AI brand or vice versa?
No, the brands and products will remain independent.

Will I still be able to buy EcoTech  and AI products from my favorite store?

Will there be any changes to EcoTech or AI prices?
No. Prices will not be impacted.

Who do I contact for customer support?

Coral Frenzy has released two brand new products over the last few months allowing the aquarist to target even species of corals in the reef aquarium.  The original Coral Frenzy is a powder-like food with tiny particles great for targeting filter feeders and planktivorous fish and it has been well received in the marketplace for many years.  Then came the new 1mm Reef Pellets that was quickly followed up by a smaller 0.5mm version designed for invertebrates with smaller mouths.  You can find pricing at Aquarium Specialty here.

We’ve used and distributed the original Coral Frenzy for the last few years with much success and more recently we have been using the 1mm pellet food along with the original.  The 1mm pellets are great for target feeding almost every LPS coral in our tanks and we have been using it 1-2 times per week with good results.  The .5mm version is so new that we haven't laid our eyes on it yet but here's what Brandon at Aqua Nerd had to say about it along with the other Coral Frenzy products.

Coral Frenzy

(The information below: courtesy of Aqua Nerd)

The powder version of the Coral Frenzy is the most different from the bunch. It is very fine, with a rich smell that is present in most dry foods (only true fish nerds can appreciate the smell of fish food). The two pellets, on the other hand, are quite similar, differing obviously in the size of each pellet. We didn’t break out the ruler to verify the 0.5mm and 1mm lengths, but the larger pellet is significantly larger…though 1...

    Ecotech Frag Plugs

    Ecotech Marine, the makers of Radion LED fixtures, MP Series Wavemaker Pumps, and Coral Glue (just to name a few of their products) is now offering a slick new frag plug that easily nestles into the cross hairs of your egg crate frag racks.  

    EcoTech Marine Frag Plugs will be available to purchase separately in 50-count bags. Each bag retails for $29 and is available for pre-order now.  Orders will begin shipping the week of January 27th.  Ecotech frag plugs are available in 3 colors: natural, purple and black.  You also have the option of ordering them in a mixed bag variety.  Leave it to the Ecotech engineers to design a frag that maximizes egg crate real estate as evident in the photo below.  The scored surface of the plug is also a great feature when compared to some of the other smooth-surfaced plugs on the market.  Glue more easily binds to the scored surface of the plug thus minimizing the likelihood of your prized frag detaching from the plug's surface and ending up elsewhere in your aquarium.

    V6 Pump



    The new V6 Flow Pump,  is the latest product coming to through the pipeline from Vertex Aquaristik.  The V6 water pump will be powered by the Askoll motor block which produces 1584 gallons per hour of water flow with a maximum head pressure of 8 feet (2.5 meters).  At 65 watts of power this is one efficient AC pump.

    Besides reliable water flow, the Vertex V6 is also virtually inaudible in the typical aquarium environment. Sound and vibration is minimized by rubber base feet and a massive CNC machined pump head that dampens any vibrational noise that could be transferred from the pump’s base to the hard surfaces of the sump.

    A custom volute sits at the business end of the V6 and is threaded to a PN16 slip union. This makes it easy to use schedule 40 or 80 PVC hard pipe or flexible PVC pipe (Spa Flex) your sump while allowing for easy removal.

    Vertex Aquaristik tells us that each V6 impeller shaft is individually custom machined to perfection from a special corrosion resistant alloy, using state of the art equipment and technology resulting in an unparalleled, resilient, and long-lasting impeller assembly.

    Radion Gen 3

    The Radion Generation 3  and Gen 3 Pro is Here!

    The best LED aquarium light fixtures just got even better.

    EcoTech Marine is excited to announce the Radion XR30wG3 and XR30wG3Pro. Generation 3 Radions are available for immediate order from Aquarium Specialty and will begin shipping out to customers next week. 

    What's New in the G3?

    The first thing you'll notice is the sleek updated design, including illuminated tactile buttons, but where you will really see a difference is in the output.

    • The G3 base model now includes indigo/UV LEDs, providing more output, and a wider spectrum than its predecessor the G2.
    • The G3 Pro model further raises the bar for max PAR and spectral output by taking advantage of top bin Cree XP-G2 and Osram Oslon Square LEDs.

    In addition, reef enthusiasts can further customize their G3 and G3 Pro output at any time by purchasing EcoTech's new  120 degree wide-angle TIR lenses. Best of all, both the G3 and the G3 Pro fully integrate with the EcoSmart Live platform, enabling complete control over your Radion lighting -- any time, anywhere.

    The Radion Gen 3 LED Fixtures come standard with 80 TIR lenses and out of the box the light spread will cover a 30" x 30" area.  For wider aquariums we recombined changing out the TIR 80 degree lenses (2 per fixture) to the 120 degree TIR lenses for 36" x 36" coverage.  Per Eric at Ecotech Marine we should expect greater efficiency and better color rendering with the changes made to the blue and white diodes.

    Aquarium Specialty is setting up a new low iron glass 60 gallon cube featuring a lot of high end equipment and we are naming it the MOACC (Mother of All Clown Cubes).  We unashamedly borrowed the concept of the name from Reef Builders who named our MATSA Aquarium (Mother of All Trade Show Aquariums) a couple of years back.  The MOACC aquarium will house a few different anemones including a rather difficult to keep blue carpet anemone and a Rainbow Inferno Bubble Tip Anemone along with about 30 Proaquatix captive raised clown fish that just arrived today.  

    We will keep this going as an active blog post with updated specs, pictures and videos.  Down the road we might even add a web came just for fun.  To stay up to date with additions to our MOACC display please like us on facebook or feel free to bookmark the page.  We hope you will enjoy our little pet project.

    The photos taken on 12/12/13 are under a 16K Orphek DIF100 pendant.  We will have the new "anemone" diode array sometime next week if all goes well.  At that time we will be introducing the blue carpet anemone.

    Here's a list of the equipment included in the setup.

    • Deep Blue 60 Gallon Rimless low iron glass tank (24"x24"x24")
    • Aquaroche Ceramic Rock
    • CaribSea Tropical Isle Tahitian Moon Sand
    • Blue Life USA black background
    • Trigger 20" x 20" x 15" custom sump
    • Waveline DC6000 Return Pump
    • RLSS R6-i Protein Skimmer
    • Triton Aquatics PO4x4 Reactor
    • Orphek DIF100 with custom anemone diode array with Neptune Control
