The Tidal Power Filter is the first ever filter by Seachem, and it’s being made by Sicce in Italy. The Seachem Tidal filter will be available in three sizes with a full set of modern features that makes this one of the first real power filters designed from the ground up in this decade
For a company like Seachem that’s been a major player in the aquarium hobby to finally make a filter, a power filter at that, really took us quite by a shock. After more than 30 years of making primarily water chemistry and quality management products, the Seachem Tidal filter really is a natural evolution of the company’s quest to make aquarium water cleaner.
The three sizes of the Seachem Tidal filter will range from the Tidal 55, Tidal 75 and Tidal 100, each of which is rated to filter freshwater aquarium with a volume of 55, 75 and 100 gallons respectively. The Seachem Tidal 55 has a flowrate of 250 gallons per hour at 6 watts, the Tidal 75 is sitting at 350 gallons per hour at 8 watts, while the Tidal 100 maxes out the line at 450 gallons per hour while using just 12 watts.
Each power filter is truly designed from the ground up with ultra modern features including a rating for actual filter volume, at more than 3 liters in the Tidal 100. But more importantly, the feed pump is already in the intake of the Seachem Tidal filter, so there is no priming required.
The Seachem Tidal includes a built in surface skimmer, with adjustments to dial in flowrate, as well as the ratio between surface and subsurface water being drawn in. The entire volume of the Tidal is a media basket so this could make a great media ‘reactor’ for many saltwater tanks, and with Sicce’s design and engineering experience these puppies are whisper quiet.
