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

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.

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

CoralVue MoonVue Retrofit 470nm LED Tubes w/ Power Supply & Mounting Clips
MoonVue Retro Moonlight LED Tubes have the appearance of a standard T5 tube, but they are powered by a low voltage transformer which makes them highly efficient, reliable and will bring out the stunning colors of any reef scape at night. Actinics have nothing on these stunning LED Strips when it comes to color! The beautiful blue 470mm LED’s, circuit boards and components are all encased within a durable protective tube protecting them from the harsh, salty, humid environment that is associated with mounting above saltwater aquariums. $59.99 to $89.99 each

Two Little Fishes NPX Bioplastics Reactors with Media
NPX BioPlastics are pelletized biodegradable polymers that provide a time-released source of food for bacteria that assimilate nitrate and phosphate. As bacteria develop on the pellet surfaces, excess growth sloughs off due to the tumbling in a fluidized filter, and these bacteria can be removed with a protein skimmer or serve as planktonic food for filter-feeding invertebrates such as corals, clams, and sponges. Anaerobic zones also develop within the pellets, thus promoting denitrification there. Why bother with dosing Vodka daily when you can just use NPX BioPlastics and let the bacteria work for you? $61.99 to $111.99 each.

Mr. Aqua 7.5 Gallon Frameless Low-Iron Glass Aquarium
Measuring 12" x 12" x 12", this new Mr. Aqua low-iron aquarium features high-clarity glass with thicknesses ranging between 5mm to 10mm. By eliminating the plastic frame that surrounds typical aquarium systems, Mr. Aqua aquariums provide a clean and ultra clear view of your aquatic life. Normally the plastic frame is used to support and keep the glass from bending under pressure in standard quality aquariums. Mr. Aqua utilizes a thicker glass for increased rigidity with a specially formulated silicone manufactured in Germany that bonds the glass together with extreme strength while being safe for your fish and aquatic life. $99.99 each.
