The marine conversion market is considerable and few freshwater aquarium sets scream out for some saltwater fun like this one from Polish manufactureraquael。Opti Set是一个坦克，罩，灯和橱柜组合，可在125-240升中提供三种尺寸 - 以及两种颜色 - 黑色和白色。
It sports a modern, contemporary look with minimalist cabinet design, clear silicone, and low-iron glass and will no doubt suit everything from cichlids to planted aquascapes. But its the flexibility of the lighting that has us wanting to make one marine and revisit growing corals with strip lights, and under a closed hood.
Without trying it, we would advise potential users to monitor water temperatures one extra tube at a time, just to make sure the massive upgrade in light, albeit LED and passively cooled, doesn’t equal at least a small increase in the tank’s running temperature.
Neat access solution
But AquaEl has reimagined this scenario and engineered internal light brackets which not only allow for ease of fitting and front to back positional adjustment of the lights, they also hinge back as a single unit, enabling all nine-light tubes to be hinged back completely out of the way for full tank access below.
We must stress that AquaEl isn’t marketing the Opti Set for marine conversion but the fanatic in us sees any new aquarium as a potential marine aquarium and those lighting options have us wondering what could be achieved if such a tank were converted to grow corals. HOB skimmers, overflow boxes, and retrofit sumps could all be employed and that flimsy-looking plastic tank cover over the lights looks like it could be easy to cut and modify or remove completely.
AquaEl isn’t known for its marine products despite its wide range of aquatic equipment and virtually100％内部制造能力. They’ve dabbled in marine aquaria before with the Reef Master nano offering and later the very promising2018年光滑的海洋外,虽然我们没见过光滑的海洋of any trade shows since and fear it didn’t get past the concept stage. Leddy Tube remains a very popular LED strip light across Europe however due to its relatively low price point and its retrofit capabilities.
