Hydor Koralia Evolution 550GPH Circulation Pump/Powerhead
The 550 fills a gap in the popular Hydor Evolution product line. Hydor had the best-selling Nano 425 but the next step up--a big step up--was the 750. Hydor reports they had many requests from hobbyists searching for something in between. Hydor claims the 550 is a "bulked up Nano" or a "Nano on steroids." The Koralia Evolution 550 features a sturdy full size magnet and is perfect for medium size reef tanks. $33.99

Tunze Silence 1073.05 Electronic Recirculation Pump
The new 1073.05 is electronically speed-controlled and operates on a safe extra-low voltage. It is ideal in any aquarium and contains a new microprocessor-controlled motor. This “intelligent” pump has an electronic motor that adapts its speed automatically to the pump load and always seeks the best efficiency at the lowest possible consumption of energy. The energy consumption is approximately 30% less than conventional pump motors. The 1073.05 will immediately stop if it is blocked. After the blockage has been removed, the pump will start up automatically after a 20 second delay. The 1073.05 also boasts all the advantages of the non-controllable versions. $203.50 + free shipping

Hanna Instruments Low Range Phosphate Meter w/ Kit, Case, and Standards
Phosphates are particularly important for the growth and development of plant roots, and hence are one of the most common fertilizers used in agriculture. In addition, phosphates are usually utilized in detergents and are needed, in small quantities, for heating systems. However, high concentrations of phosphates can cause environmental pollution: they are for example a primary cause of eutrophication. For these reasons, it is necessary to closely monitor the phosphate levels present in both civil and industrial waste water. $259.99 + free shipping
