The Elos E-style chamber is a new product providing a compact way to get water back-and-forth between the main aquarium and your external filters or media reactors. Anyone using a canister filter or standalone media reactor knows the pain of the large, swooping bends of the plumbing pipes or getting algae growth in the bends where it is hardest to clean and the Elos E-style chamber eliminates both of those. Only available in Japan at the moment, the simple, black acrylic box sits nicely on your aquarium and routes the water to eliminate the need for the bulking transitions. Plus the black acrylic blocks the light from growing algae in tough spots to clean.
Two versions are available. One with a strainer sponge and another without. Both versions of the Elos E-style chamber are available in different sizes to accommodate different thickness of glass along with length of strainer tube and size of the 90-degree “jet pipe” return to fit different sized aquariums. The Elos E-style chamber are pretty affordable, starting out at ¥4,800 (around $60 USD) with optional parts available.
