BioTek Marine Ceramic Reef Rock

Aquarium Specialty is pleased to announce a new line of reef-ready ceramic rock to it's expanding line of BioTek Marine products.

Each piece of reef-ready ceramic rock is carefully hand sculpted by experienced artisans.  BioTek Marine ceramic rock does not need curing.  Simply add it to your aquarium and it will begin colonizing coraline algae and probiotic bacteria along with your favorite corals.  Unlike some other ceramic rock options on the market, BioTek Marine Ceramic Rock has plenty of surface area and hiding places for fish, shrimp and more cryptic aquarium inhabitants.

BioTek Marine Ceramic Rock is available in sculptured cave and shelf style pieces in various sizes.  Since each piece is hand-made, you may expect slight varations in shapes and sizes from the stock depictions of this product.  For pricing, sizing and several more product images, please visit here.  Now Biotek Marine has two eco-friendly options for aquascaping your reef aquariums with it's Dry Reef Rock and Ceramic Reef Rock.

Aquarium Specialty announces new product offerings in it's online catalog.  Recently,  Doctor Eco Systems, the makers of high quality fish, coral and invertebrate foods asked us to consider carrying their coral, inverebrate and fish foods.  After careful study, Aquarium Specialty is pleased to offer these new products.  The following is a review of one of these products known as Doc's Eco Eggs.

Dr Eco Systems Super Eggs

 

Doc's Eco Eggs are super high in protein-brined fish roe which contains a high fat content including omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids for your fish and corals.  Made from a high quality brined-fish roe which has been shown to send corals and fish into a feeding frenzy.  A benefit of this product  is that it can be shipped via regular UPS/FedEx with no need for refrigeration until it is actually opened for use by the consumer.  

The manufacturer reccomends not to overfeed Doc's Eco Eggs or you might have a protein skimmer.  RLSS DC controllable protein skimmers offer a 30 minute feed timer button as do many of the Reef Octopus models so we reccomened pushing the 30 minute feed timer button when using a lot of the food at one time.

Doctor Eco Systems recommends breaking up the egg mass in a cup of water prior to feeding your aquarium, but you may also squeeze some  directly onto your finger and add it directly to the aquarium. The egg gel tends to stay together longer, allowing large fish and larger LPS corals to ingest larger globs of the food. Small fish and corals benefit more from break...

The new Ecotech Marine Radion XR15wPRO is here

Radion XR15wPRO

We are pleased to announce that the Radion XR30 will be getting a new little brother! EcoTech Marine has been working tirelessly to create a new, smaller Radion LED to compliment the highly successful XR30w. The Radion XR15wPRO features the same great spectrum, same features and same warranty as the XR30wPRO. With one cluster, half the wattage, a 24" coverage area, and a lower price point, the XR15wPRO is the perfect solution for small to medium-sized tanks where the full output of the XR30w platform is not necessary.

Shipping now!

 

 XR15wPRO FAQs:

 

Q: How do I pre-order and when will the fixtures begin shipping?

A: Ecotech Marine expects to begin shipping out orders by mid July and it takes 2 days for the time Ecotech ships to arrive at Aquarium Specialty.  In stock now - click here.

 

Q: What is the MRP of the XR15wPRO?

A: $449USD

 

Q: What is the coverage of an XR15wPRO?

A: 2x2ft. 

 

Q: Why is the spread almost as much as an XR30 model light?

A: Spread is more of a factor of optics than wattage or clusters. The XR15wPRO comes with Wide Angle TIR Optics installed standard so the spread from one cluster is not much less than the spread from two clusters located inches apart on an XR30. What is different however is the PAR at the same % output. You will achieve less PAR with an XR15wPRO versus an an XR30 model. The XR15wPRO is ideal for the many commercially available shallow tanks where PAR at depth is not necessary.

 

Q: What is the recommend ...

BioTek Marine Dry Reef Rock

BioTek Marine Premium Dry Reef Rock is now available from Aquarium Specialty and we are pleased to be able to offer this premium dry rock mined from land in the sate of Florida.  BioTek Marine Dry Reef Rock is a dry rock that is mined from land and thus it has no impact to the reef environment and marine systems.  All of the rock is cleansed after it's mined so that dirt and other organics are removed from the rock crevaces and rock surfaces.

BioTek Marine Dry Reef Rock is delivered reef-ready and pest/organism free.  The advantages of using a natural dry dry over live rock is that it won't leach out potentially hamful substances into the aquarium water column and it provides a strong and supportative reef structure for your aquarium inhabitants.  BioTek Marine Premium Dry Rock can be used in marine fish only systems, reef aquariums and fresh water setups.

This product is presently in stock with same day shipping from Columbia, SC.  All orders received prior 3:30 PM EST will ship out the same business day.  BioTek Marine Rock is offered in 10lb boxes at a price of $22.49 and 25lb boxes sell for $56.49 per box.

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...

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?
Yes, there will be no changes to retail availability. AI products will remain distributed by AI and EcoTech products will be distributed by EcoTech.

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

Who do I contact for customer support?

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.
