Ecotech Marine ReefLink

The Ecotech Marine is ReefLink is almost ready for prime time! EcoTech is looking for Radion owners to be part of their final field testing before they introduce the product to the rest of the world.

Are you interested in being a ReefLink beta tester? Visit the link below to find out how to participate in the beta test trial. Note that they are limiting the rollout, so not everyone will be chosen!

What is ReefLink? ReefLink is a wireless bridge that seamlessly integrates your Radion with the web-based EcoSmart Live platform to provide complete custom control over your aquarium lighting.

But controlling your Radion is just the beginning: Soon VorTech pumps will also be controllable through ReefLink. And in the future --- well, let's just say that ReefLink will eventually give you control over just about everything in your tank.  

Aquarium will begin to take pre-orders in the very near future.  Click here for the product listing on Aquarium Specialty and to sign up for beta testing visit this link.  The MSRP on the ReefLink appears that it will be $199.00 once it's officially ready for prime time.  No word on the wholesale price yet but it will be posted on the Aqua Specialty site once we are in the know.

On a side note, Aquarium Specialty will have the ReefLink hooked up to the "MATSA Aquarium" Sept. 21st in Columbia, SC for the CMAC annual Aquarium Expo.  For more information about the Expo please visit the CMAC website.

Classic-NWB-110 Skimmer

Coral Vue has introduced two new protein skimmer models to their already vast array of skimmers that they offer.  What makes these different is the super small footprint.  We see these fitting nicely into smaller sumps like the one we are waiting on for our new 24x24x24 rimless cube anemone/clown fish display (more on that a a later date).

The Octopus Classic Skimmers are currently available in two models.  The 110-SSS has a footprint of only 6.1″ x 7.87″  and Body Diameter of 5″.  The height comes in at a relatively shot 19" and the skimmer is said to be able to handle aquariums up to 100 gallons.  The footprint on the 110s bigger brother comes in at 7.3″ x 9.45″ with a body diameter of 6″.  The overall height for the Octopus 150-SSS Classic is 20.8″ with a 150 gallon aquarium rating. 

The Octopus 110-SSS is powered by a Aquatrance 1000s pinwheel pump while the Octopus 150-SSS is driven by the Aquatrance 1800s Pinwheel Pump.  Below is a list of details on both models.  For pricing and availability visit the two links below.

Those of you that own or are familiar with the Ecotech Marine Radion LED fixtures are most likely aware of or own the Ecotech Reef Link wireless controller.  Until recently the Reef Link was only able to control the Radion LED fixtures but now it also has Vortech control.  The pumps themselves have had wireless functionality for many years and Aquarium Specialty was the company that had the honor of being the sole distributor of the 1st several hundred wireless upgrades to be sold in the US market several years ago.

The Vortech wireless pumps were limited to pump-to-pump communication so as to create synchronized and anti-sync wave patterns. Now with the addition of the Reef Link Vortech firmware update aquarists hobbyists can sync their pumps to their Radion LED lighting schedule and control everything wirelessly from a smart phone, computer, or tablet.

EcoTech Marine’s latest updates to their EcoSmart Live software now includes settings for the VorTechs, allowing hobbyists to control their pumps via the internet and mobile devices. The software has all of the native wave modes of the EcoSmart controllers, but adds to that with greater precision of control, as well as a few other nice touches that will probably result in you never actually touching the physical control hardware ever again.

In the video above, EcoTech Marine quickly steps us through the updates. It’s not as in-depth as we’d like but we expect Ecotech to role out more in-depth videos in the near future.  For more...
