EcoPico Desktop Aquarium by Ecoxotic – Video Part 1Posted on Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 at 9:56 pm by ReefTools
We recently got two EcoPicos from Ecoxotic, the basic version (EcoPico Desktop Aquarium) and the reef version (EcoPico Desktop Reef). In part one, we will focus on a VERY basic initial freshwater setup of the EcoPIco Desktop Aquarium. We will document the transformation of this tank as it matures. In later parts, we will get to the reef setup as well (which is now cycling).
The EcoPico Desktop Aquarium is a 5.1 gallon tank, measuring 10″ x 10″ x 12″. It comes with an aquarium filter & pump pushing out 80gph, and a very slick 9 Watts LED arm light with 2x12K white and 1x453nm actinic bulbs. Our first impression was just how clean the setup is. The rimless tank with black silicone looks great on the desktop and with only a few wires hanging off the back (light, filter, heater) we did not find it overbearing at all. Our favorite part is definitively the EcoPico LED Arm Light. If you’ve only seen it online, you should definitely check it out.
