Zoo Med’s new Aqua Cool Aquarium Cooling Fan is must have for any aquarist. The Aqua Cool is better than overhead fans; it has a side-mounted assembly which minimizes water splashes on the motor and prevents accidental immersion. It is fully adjustable featuring a multi-directional discharge nozzle for precise air flow focus. The nozzle can be pointed upwards to dissipate the heat generated by the lamps or towards the water to increase the air/water contact. Visit www.zoomed.com for more information.

Mini Polario is an energy efficient, high flow, low voltage water pump with bi-directional outputs to simulate the natural wave and current actions of the ocean which aid in coral growth and feeding. Each unit is equipped with a magnet mount and a 360-degree mounting bracket to secure the pump. Pre-programmed in all settings to gradually increase flow: First 5 seconds – 50 percent, next 5 seconds – 75 percent, next 5 seconds – 100 percent, then a delay before the water will discharge from the opposite side of the pump with just one moving part. Manufactured of durable high impact plastic for durability and longevity, each impeller uses a hardened ceramic shaft that runs on ceramic bearing in a low voltage motor. The next generation in water circulation, this low voltage pump is like two pumps in one with a built in wave-maker.
4 ML 1000 GPH – Dimensions 1.9” x 2.1” – 7w
7ML 1800 GPH – Dimensions 2.1” x 2.4” – 23w

ONEdersave Products LLC introduces EcoBio-Planter to its line of EcoBio-Block Family Products. An attractive and useful addition to any aquarium, the EcoBio-Planter doubles as both planter and water purifier to create a truly complete ecosystem.
EcoBio-Planter offers great decorative aquascaping opportunities for the hobbyist, and a way for new or low-tech hobbyists to keep live plants without delving too deeply into the expense and expertise of planted aquariums. Having a container pot for a plant means you can easily and simply decorate your aquarium, by moving the planter anywhere in the aquarium at will without uprooting the plant.
EcoBio-Planter, made with natural zeolite and crushed natural stone, uses EcoBio-Block’s patented system of using special beneficial bacteria (bacillus subtilis natto) living and multiplying in the blocks to clarify cloudy water in aquariums. This good bacteria breaks down organic waste into ammonia, then into nitrites and then nitrates. Plants use up nitrates and change them into nitrogen gas which passes harmlessly into the air. This purifies the water, creates a healthy environment for aquatic life, and reduces maintenance needs. EcoBio-Block products keep high levels of beneficial bacteria constant in an aquarium to keep a fish tank’s water clear.
The new EcoBio-Planter, for clear water, healthy fish, and a complete ecosystem!
For more information, please visit us at http://www.onedersave.com/ecobio-planter.htm.
ONEdersave Products LLC is the sole distributor of EcoBio-Block Family Products in the United States and Canada, with products for aquariums, ponds and other water features.
