The RoboSnail has become the ‘Roomba’ of cleaning aquarium glass and as of today, we can look forward to the RoboSnail working on even larger aquariums. AquaGenesis, maker of the RoboSnail is announcing a new higher capacity RoboSnail model to compliment the existing model which will be capable of holding onto, and cleaning, glass with a thickness of up to half an inch thick, thats 12mm for the rest of the world.
Whereas the current RoboSnail tops out at cleaning glass that is 10mm thick and services tanks up to 125 gallons, the new higher capacity RoboSnail’s 12mm ability will open up the floodgates of larger tanks that it can clean including “standard” 150, 175 and 180 gallon tanks. Some of the larger All In One Aquariums like the Innovative Marine Nuvo 80 and Red Sea MAX S 400 and 500 will also be serviceable by the new beefier RoboSnail.
Getting the RoboSnail to clean glass up to 12mm thick took quite a lot of re-engineering but AquaGenesis was able to use the same size shells for the RoboSnail while keeping the price relatively affordable. The new stronger RoboSnail is available to preorder now for $349 and will begin shipping in July this summer. [RoboSnail]
