Innovative Marine will soon start shipping two new sizes of their Fusion aquarium series, the 10 & 20 gallon Fusion Nano all in one aquariums with more fit and finish than has ever been offered in an aquarium of this type and size. With the Fusion series Innovative Marine really broke new ground as far as what level of polish could be offered up in a mass-produced, commercially built aquarium that thousands of people would enjoy.
Not only has Innovative Marine trickled down all that innovation into their smallest ten & twenty gallon premium Fusion nano starter kits, they are doing it at an unbelievable price too. The 10 gallon Fusion Nano is 12 inches long, by 15 inches wide and 13 inches high to create an approximately 12 inch cube to aquascape once an inch is provided for the rim and the space of the filter area is removed. The twenty gallon Fusion Nano just adds a foot to the length of the dimension, and both tanks feature 6 mm high clarity glass.
Like all the tanks in the Innovative Marine Fusion lines, the tanks have built-in rear overflows that feed the back filtration area, 3-stage removable media filtration baskets and that signature screen lid to keep our precious fish from jumping out, an even more important detail for small tanks where fish spend more time close to the water surface. For aquariums of these dimensions the return pumps are more than enough to provide a baseline of water movement with 90 gallons of turnover for the 10 gallon Fusion Nano and more than double that amount for the 20 gallon.
Any marine aquarium company can easily offer this bevy of high end features in a nano all in one aquarium, for a price, but with their super competitive pricing Innovative Marine is clearly giving new reefers the opportunity to make a great investment in the foundation of their aquarium. The 10 gallon Fusion Nano will be retailing for only $99 while the 20 gallon will be priced at $199.
These starter kits have everything needed to get a nice marine aquarium started and flowing, the only other hardware you’ll need to add on setup is a nice nano heater and aquarium light, and the specially designed Skkye LED light should be one of your first considerations. The 10 gallon Fusion Nano will be bundled with one of the new Skkye LEDs for $199 and the 20 gallon Fusion Nano will be bundled wit two of them for $399.
The new clamp-on Skkye LED lights are specially designed to attach to the rim of the Fusion Nano aquariums, and the alternating 3watt blue and white LEDs have just the right amount of power and spread to provide ample lighting for a wide diversity of beginner and intermediate corals. To demonstrate this, Innovative Marine had three of their employees aquascape three different 10 gallon Fusion Nano aquariums side by side. The three staffers have experience levels ranging from months to over a decade and this is the kind of real world, proof-is-in-the-pudding kind of results which really adds to the consumer confidence of a product.
If history is any indication, we might overhear our family talking about the Fusion Nano tanks like we have in previous years with the Nuvo nano aquariums. The beauty of the Innovative Marine Fusion Nano is their mass appeal, making them attractive to even non-reefers and enticing more people to dive into this great hobby of ours and we can’t wait to start recommending them to novice reefers when they start shipping out next week.
