Marineland Rimless Cubes Spotted at the 2011 Global ExpoPosted on Saturday, March 19th, 2011 at 12:27 pm by ReefTools
Spotted at the 2011 Global Pet Expo in Orlando, FL. United Pet Group’s Marineland brand was showing off a new, rimless (frameless) version of it’s very popular cube tanks. While final sizes and details including pricing have not been confirmed, they had 3 prototypes on exhibit in their booth. a 30x30x18(70 gallon) with Corner-Flo, a 24x24x24 (approx 60 gallons) with a rear center overflow, and an 18x18x18 (25 gallon) with no overflow. They all had very smoothly beveled and polished glass, clear silicone, and optional glass canopy with a nifty plastic / rubber mount to attach to the frameless glass sides. Marineland was also showing off their new MaxiJet PRO pumps and Reef Capable LED fixtures on two of these, and it was interesting to note that the included mounting legs on the RC lights fit quite well on the frameless style cubes.
The word is they are looking at a summer launch, and we should have more details in the coming months.
