(PRE-ORDER) Ecotech Marine VorTech MP10 Propeller Pump
Designed especially for nano-reef aquariums, the MP10 from EcoTech Marine is a small yet powerful pump. The MP10 is ideal for tanks from 2.5 to 50 gallons tanks. Creates gentle flows of 500 to 1,575 gallons per hour, helping the tanks feel more like the ocean. The MP10 shares the same award-winning technology as the MP40w and lets you take full control of the flow. With all the electrical components outside the aquarium and a variety of easy-to-program modes, the VorTech is the safest, most versatile pump on the market.

ELOS Coral Integrators Pack
With the ever improving use of powerful filtration (protein skimmers), high intensity lighting systems (HID, T5, LED) and powerful water movement the modern reef aquarium can now handle a more diverse range of animal life and this range of animals needs the proper nourishment in order to thrive. The Elos line of Coral Integrators consist of three products; Pro Skimmer Coral Nourishment SPS Food (EO2181), Omega Amino Acid Coral Food (EO2191), and SvC Zooplankton Coral Food for Filter Feeders (EO2171).

Elos System Water Level Osmocontroller 2
Using a sophisticated micro processe
d controlled system, the Elos Osmocontroller will ensure that no water will spill during the refill process, damaging the floor, cabinets or house furniture. Ready for mounting, the Osmocontroller is supplied with: a sensor, glass housing, control unit, enclosed power supply and a low voltage pump. The Osmocontroller will compensate the smallest amount of evaporated water and will automatically start the pump when the float switch is opened for at least 5 seconds, preventing undesired false starts.

Prodibio Reef Booster Nano - 12 Vials
Reef
Booster Nano is a mix of nutritive supplements, finely micronized and enriched with essential fatty acids (Omega-3). It was specifically developed to grow invertebrates that feed mostly, or partially, on micro-plankton, including the corals with symbiotic algae (Zooxanthellae), which require a micro-plankton supplement. Reef Booster Nano is a supplement that fully nourishes the Corals and Live Rock within your Nano-Reef biotope. Usage: 1 Vail for 40 Liters (10 gals) once a week.

Prodibio AlkaReef+ - 10 vials
pH is an essential parameter to monitor because important variations of its level are harmful to reef aquarium inhabitants. In this environment, carbonate and hydrogen carbonate ions are responsible for the biggest part of the global alkalinity. Their buffer capacity also contributes to reduce the unwanted pH variations. But carbonate and hydrogen carbonate are also used by calcifying organisms such as corals and coralline algae, in order to build their rigid structures. Consequently, it is crucial to regularly add these ions in a reef aquarium. AlkaReef+ contains carbonate ions in order to maintain your tank`s alkalinity to its optimum. It works best with CalciReef+, a calcium hydro-gel that slowly liberates hydrogen carbonate ions in the water. AlkaReef+ is gluconate free.

Prodibio CalciReef+ - 10 vials
Marine organisms like corals and calcifying algae use calcium and carbonates to synthesize their rigid structures. These algae also have important requirements in magnesium, an element inhibiting the precipitation of calcium in the form of insoluble calcium carbonate, thus allowing higher calcium concentrations in the water. The carbonate and hydrogen carbonate ions are responsible for the major part of global alkalinity, and their buffer capacity reduces pH variations, harmful for aquariums. As a result, it is important to compensate for the consumption of these elements by regular additions. This is why CalciReef+ provides calcium and magnesium. It also progressively liberates, under the action of BioDigest`s bacteria, hydrogen carbonate ions from the acetate in the calcium hydro-gel. This gradually regenerates part of the lost alkalinity of your aquarium.

ZEOvit ZEOmag Magnesium Granulate - 1kg
ZEOmag is a pure
magnesium granulate to be used in calcium reactors (5-15% of total media volume) to maintain magnesium levels. Magnesium is easily added without chloride and without disturbing the ionic balance in your tank. Granulate size 6-12 mm.



ZEOvit Zeolite Reactor Media - 1 Liter
ZEOvit
consists of three different sized untreated and all natural Zeoliths of highest quality. For best results it should be used in a filter. If used in combination with ZEObak and ZEOfood, ZEOvit will safely remove nitrate and phosphate from the aquarium. With patience and over time the water quality in your tank will reach nearly natural levels. This will result in natural colors and growth rates.

ZEOVit Activated Carbon - 1 Liter
Place in sump or other high flow area to absorb poisonous and remove yellowing compounds from the water. 1 liter will effectively treat 250 gallons.
