Aquatic Life Announces New EDGE LED Aquarium Light Fixture: Innovative LED fixture offers customization and energy savings

AquaticLife_EdgeLED

COMMERCE, CA- December 2, 2013- Aquatic Life, LLC is proud to announce the launch of its new EDGE LED aquarium light fixture. Designed to function as an all-purpose energy-efficient light fixture, the EDGE LED features sunrise and sunset functions, built-in moonlights and a three-channel timer ideal for aquarium hobbyists.

The combination of LEDs provides the light necessary for keeping fresh water and marine aquariums while the fixture’s integrated, anodized aluminum heat sink wicks heat away from the LEDs. Additionally, users can create a sunrise and sunset effect by programming the EDGE LED timer to slowly turn the lights on and off over a ten minute to two-hour period.

“Of all the lighting options available to aquarium hobbyists, Aquatic Life’s EDGE LED fixture offers customization to enhance the look and feel of aquariums,” said Michael Elliott, Aquatic Life co-owner. “As the industry evolves, we will continue to develop new and innovative products to help our customers achieve the best results.”

EcoTech Marine launches Wide-angle Total Internal Reflection (TIR) Lens

 

[December 2, 2013, Allentown, PA]—EcoTech Marine is proud to announce the launch of its latest product, the Wide-Angle Total Internal Reflection (TIR) Lens, which provides a wide spread option for larger aquariums. The lens will be sold as an accessory for new and existing Radion fixtures.

Optimized for the highest PAR possible over a wider coverage area, this lens accessory allows an aquarist to customize their Radion fixture to trade light penetration for coverage. Extremely useful for shallower aquariums (up to 24” deep) or for non-SPS dominated aquariums, this accessory adds a great deal of flexibility to the application of Radion fixtures. It is especially useful on tanks with dimensions that result in light coverage where one Radion may be insufficient but two lights are excessive, such as on 36” wide aquariums

“We are committed to increasing the value of our products by improving their flexibility and capability, not just for those starting with the EcoTech brand – but also for our loyal customers who have made us the company that we are ,” said Tim Marks, President. “The Wide-Angle TIR Lens can be credited directly to the insight and input provided by our hobbyist community. We promised future upgrades for the Radion lighting platform, and we continue to deliver on that promise.”

The Wide-Angle TIR lens is designed to achieve a 36×36” spread at approximately 9” above the aquarium versus a 24×24” spread for the standard TIR lens. This increased spread is achieved by diminishing the peak PAR achieved at the center of the fixture. The kit can be installed on all Radion LED fixtures sold to-date.

Founded in 2003 and based in Pennsylvania, EcoTech Marine has revolutionized the way people think about aquarium technology and has raised the industry standard for aquarium equipment. Its technologically superior products, which include its VorTech pumps; Radion lighting products; Elements coral glue; and accessories, offer unmatched performance, and its commitment to elegant design minimizes the equipment’s visual intrusion into customer’s aquarium.

Robotic Algae Magnet

RoboSnail_2RoboSnail_6The RoboSnail the world’s first and only automated aquarium glass cleaner is taking aim at modernizing the daily maintenance of algae prevention.

The RoboSnail, an automated Robotic aquarium magnet, will activate independent of the user every 24 hour period to prevent the daily buildup of aquarium algae much like the robotic vacuum cleaners that have become prevalent.    The RoboSnail cleans the glass surface and upon completion of its cleaning cycle will then recharge itself via a docking station until its next cleaning cycle. The product is fully programmable for the user’s individual aquariums parameters.  The RoboSnail works on Rimless, In Wall mounted, and standard aquariums. The RoboSnail is capable to clean the glass of aquariums ranging from 55-150 gallons with an upper operating tolerance of .40” or 10mm in glass thickness.  Subsequent models will follow that will work on a broader selection of aquariums.

“With the RoboSnail, aquarium owners will appreciate that their investment in an aquarium provides a clear peaceful view of a calming underwater atmosphere as opposed to a reminder of another cleaning chore that needs to be done” says Milan Rafailovich, President of AquaGenesis

RoboSnail Benefits

  • Time for the User
  • Cost Effective
  • User Friendly
  • Less Cleaning More Relaxing
  • No More Scratches
  • Less Stress For Fish
  • Lower Nitrates
  • Healthier Tank
  • Highly Efficient
  • It Really Works

The RoboSnail is the next evolutionary step in aquarium maintenance and we at AquaGenesis stand 100% behind our product.  Let a RoboSnail automatic aquarium glass cleaner transport you to the future of aquarium maintenance, which fortunately for us is today – See more at: http://www.robosnail.com  for video and a list of vendors.
