JBJ introduces the newest addition to the 28 gallon family of reef biotopes. The new CF-QUAD is equipped with integrated 105 watt compact fluorescent Quad Lamp and state of the art electronic ballast for high intensity light output with a low energy draw.
The 28 gallon CF-QUAD is the most value packed AIO (All-In-One) in its class and price level. It offers almost 50% more light wattage than competing brands, two powerheads, Ocean Pulse Duo wavemaker, removable transparent filter basket (for easy refugium conversion), designated heater column, designated protein skimmer column (protein skimmer sold separately), two cooling fans, and four Nite-Vu LEDs with its own power supply.
The revolutionary CF-QUAD lamp boasts 105 watts of high-intensity daytime light output with the 10K/7,100K Combo lamp. It utilizes a small compact size while delivering mega-lumens to your corals. The quick-disconnect harness always makes changing the lamp quick and easy.
Nite-Vu LEDs are strategically placed on all four corners to evenly distribute moon lighting throughout the aquarium. All LEDs are prewired individually with a male plug for easy replacement. They consumes less than 1 watt of power, but are strong enough to illuminate nocturnal behaviors.
Integrated Cooling System: The secret to the cool running top is the artistic canopy that also serves as a key factor in heat dissipation. All canopies are made from heat retardant ABS plastic. The 2 cooling fans automatically turn on/off with the main CF-QUAD lighting system. A thermal protector is also added to automatically shut off the lighting system in the event the fan fails. It will automatically turn back on once temperatures reach safe conditions.
Easy Feeding: The new feeding lid is lighter than the previous full-front lid. It grants quick and easy access for feeding and retrieving water samples without lifting the entire hood.
Smart Filtration: The filter starts as water enters the center overflow. The water is directed into the 3-stage Filter Media Basket, which is installed with a mechanical sponge, chemical activated carbon, and biological ceramic rings. The unique 3-stage Filter Media Basket can house a variety of chemical media to suit your needs. Cleaning is especially easy since all you have to do is lift up on the basket handle and watch the water drain out the bottom for simple and dry filter change. All baskets have a sliding door for added convenience.
Newly Redesigned Filter Basket: Now transparent for easy refugium conversion. Simply add macro-algae (e.g. Chaetomorpha) into Chamber One and Chamber Two. It is recommended to leave the activated carbon in Chamber Three with a small piece of the mechanical sponge before the water exits to prevent algae clogging pumps.
Creating Motion in Captive Oceans: The redesigned Ocean Pulse Duo now incorporates a memory chip for flawless performance even after a power failure. The wavemaker creates turbulent currents for a more natural reef environment. You can set it from 10 seconds to 6 minute alternating cycles. Water is returned via two directional return nozzles on each side of the center overflow for even natural currents.
Whether you're establishing your first aquarium, or expanding your hobby experience with a new niche system, small aquariums in the 12-gallon range make a rewarding and relaxing project at home or in the office.
All home reef aquariums are miniature reefs when compared to expansive natural reefs. However, the term "nano reef" generally refers to a miniature reef system that is typically 30 gallons or less. Is a nano reef right for you?
Smaller aquariums in the range of 10-20 gallons are the ideal size for the serious beginner. When stocking your small aquarium, think scale: a community of tiny, active, and colorful tropical fish can make even the smallest setup appear grand.
Please note: Return of electrical equipment and lightbulbs to Drs. Foster & Smith for exchange or refund is limited to 60 days from the date of purchase. Beyond 60 days, please contact the manufacturer for repair or replacement as covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
