The Eshopps Tanklimate & Lift are two new useful acrylic accessories to help streamline a couple of common reef aquarium needs. These well thought out acrylic products shown off at Reefapalooza New York were designed to be very practical and flexible to suit a wide range of aquarium and protein skimmer sizes.
The Eshopps Lift is a simple riser platform to help position protein skimmers at an ideal height for balancing the ratio of air and water intake. These circular risers come with three adjustable legs and an X-Y level indicator so you can ensure that your protein skimmer body is positioned perfectly straight. Eshopps will be offering the Lift in three sizes, a small 8 inch, medium 10 inch and large 12.5 inch diameters starting at around $45 for the smallest model.
The Tanklimate is a dual purpose magnetic specimen enclosure which can be employed to either hold fish or coral frags. When empty the Tanklimate can be used to hold new fish for conditioning and acclimating to the aquarium environment, or you can use the included frag rack to hold corals for inspection before ‘deploying’ to the wider reef tank.
The Tanklimate will also be available in three sizes, a small 6 x 4 x 4″ with one magnet and able to hold six frags. The medium Tanklimate is 12 x 5 x 6″ with two magnets, two dividers and capable of holding up to twelve frags and the largest model is 18 x 5 x 6″, includes three dividers and its frag rack has room for holding up to 22 frags.
The Eshopps Tanklimate is no flimsy acclimation box/frag rack and they include magnets strong enough to hold on aquarium walls up to half an inch thick.
