INNOVATIVE DESIGN BY D-D
Built in low iron high clarity glass, the aquarium features a brace less design producing a clean and modern display with easy access for maintenance tasks. A standard weir box can become an unattractive focal point in any aquarium, dictating aquascaping to try and hide it and interrupting flow patterns inside the tank. With this in mind the invisible weir box of the PRO-Reef models has been carefully designed to minimise intrusion into the aquarium whilst exceeding the functionality found in most aquariums.
The PRO-Reef cabinet is designed to be tall to perfectly balance the aquarium and comes pre-assembled, designed and built by D-D in the U.K to ensure a consistent high quality and an extremely strong cabinet. The top, bottom and main structural uprights of the cabinet are made of 36mm waterproof board providing rigidity, excellent load bearing properties, giving the impression of a piece of furniture rather than just another tank cabinet.
The tall cabinet provides good headroom for the use of taller equipment and ease of maintenance. When installing an aquarium it is of the upmost importance to provide a level base, unlevelled cabinets can stress the glass and can result in an uneven water level in the aquarium. The D-D aquarium cabinet design includes heavy duty adjustable feet allowing for accurate leveling of the cabinet and aquarium.
There are as many ideas about sump design as there are hobbyists. D-D have many decades of experience in designing, building and running large successful aquariums and have combined this knowledge to produce what they believe is the perfect sump layout for the space available.
The ultra-quiet twin pipe weir system is further refined at the sump level by including a section whereby the pipes are completely submerged resulting in a silent water return into the sump with no splashing or gurgling.
The water from that section overflows through twin filter socks which incorporate a diffused silencer plate to silence any water noise. From there the filtered water flows into two large equipment compartments. These chambers can both hold equipment such as skimmers, media reactors, calcium reactors etc. or you can use one chamber as a refugium with caulerpa/cheato. Here again there is flexibility to alternate these sections for those who prefer to skim before or skim after the refugeum.
The final section is a generous sized return pump compartment which sits beside the integrated water top off reservoir located to the side of the sump
