The RC350 Protein Skimmer was just unveiled by Euro-Reef. Euro-Reef’s popular RC Series Protein Skimmers utilize a mixture of cast acrylic tube, cast acrylic sheet along with custom made acrylic and pvc parts. Each of the RC Series Skimmers are hand made in the US, and are made per the client’s specifications.

The Euro-Reef RC350 is ideal for a 350 gallon aquarium with a medium bio-load. This recirculating protein skimmer boasts an impressive 10″ reaction chambers and 2 Euro-Reef Skimmer Pumps. You can see in the attached photos that almost 3/4 of the reaction chamber is full of milky white bubbles, which will ensures maximum contact surface. This model employs Euro-Reef’s trademarked Euro-Lock system for easy removal and cleaning of the collection cup, without added clearance.

The 28G Nano Cube LED model is the latest release by JBJ. Part of the popular Nano Cube Series, the 28g Nano Cube LED employs a high intensity LED illumination system which delivers both the power of Metal Halides and the coverage of T5 lighting. The distinct advantages of the LED model is 10x the light bulb lifespan, lower energy consumption, and cool running.

28G JBJ Nano Cube LED – a closer look

LED Illumination
The high-intensity LED lighting used by JBJ in this nano tank, offers increased PAR while using less energy. The new canopy offers a complete 24 hour light cycle with:

  • Daylight – 25 x 3 Watt – 14K
  • Dawn/Dusk – 4 x 3 Watt – Actinic/466nm
  • Moon – 2 x 1 Watt – Nite-Vu/456nm



Sick of buying new bulbs? How about once every 10 years!! The 89 watt LED system in this 28g Nano Cube outputs PAR comparable to that of the 150W HQI – 14K model, while consuming approximately 40% less energy. LEDs radiate heat upwards, rather then downwards, and therefore reduce heat transfer and the all-to-common need for a chiller. To ensure cool running (Not the movie!) JBJ employed an aluminum heat sink, which quickly dissipates the heat put out by the LEDs. 4 cooling fans are turned on in unison with the lighting, and a thermal protector has been added with an auto shut off feature, in case the fans fail.



A common modification of the all-in-one nano tanks is the implementation of a refugium. JBJ makes everything easy as pie by providing a dedicated chamber for macro algae, alongside the activated carbon and sponge. The sponge helps prevent the algae from reaching and clogging the return pump.



The redesigned Ocean Pulse Duo now uses a memory chip to ensure consistent performance, even after a power failure. The Ocean Pulse Duo provides variable flow. Increments can be set anywhere between 10 seconds to 6 minutes in alternating cycles.

Check out this incredible top-down of Anagonbe’s tank. This angle give you perspective as to how nice and big these acropora colonies are. This is just another stunning video of this amazing reef tank. With the flow turned off, the visuals are just about as nice as they get. A variety of reef fish are swimming happily in this magnificent recreation of a natural reef.

The final Fluval G Series trailer has been released. This trailer highlights the Hydro Tech Performance Monitor as well as 360 degrees views of the Fluval G Series filters.  We just can’t get over how nice these filters look. The LCD display looks very promising and certainly brings aquarium filters up to a new standard. Hopefully we can get our hands on one of these soon and post an RT testimonial.
