The new Marine series aquariums from marineland are designed to allow you to pick different options from some of their newer products they have released this past year. To start, the aquarium itself is available in several models 150, 200, 250 and 300 gallon sizes. All of these feature “high-definition” starfire glass. Wait. You didn’t know about the HD factor of starfire glass? Us either. Their ad agency got a bit carried away. (We would like to know if the glass supports 1080i or 1080p HD?)
Moving along, their stand and canopy is another option which comes in “Monterey Deep” and “Pine Majesty Deep” which are different designs. In regards to light, you’ll have options of metal halides with T5’s with heavy internal ballasts included free of charge. The Metal halides only come in the 150 wattage variety so don’t plan on any light demanding corals on those deeper tanks kids.
Filtration is powered by their NO3 factory bio wheel sump systems that sits below the tank in the already mentioned stand. We wonder if Marineland knows that 70% of aquarists run some form of the berlin filtration system, our guess is no. Back in May of this year Marineland launched their newly designed protein skimmers which they suggest to plug into this system, naturally. We don’t have any pricing where these systems will start out at, but expect to pay a reasonable amount for the starfire glass aquariums which is the only thing this system has us excited about. Does this excite any of you? Let us know in comments.
