  • Interchangeable plates (PAT PENDING)
  • Lid to prevent splashing
  • Adjustable water height
  • Self adjusting foam block platform (PAT PENDING)
  • Dual platforms
  • Protein skimmer section
  • Refugium section
  • Emerald green coloring to block light and prevent unwanted algae growth in other sections

Interchangeable Plates

Each Emerald sump comes with two plates that can be placed into Section 1:
  • Filter Sock Plate
  • Foam Block Plate

The filter sock plate is installed when the included 100 micron filter socks are desired.

The foam block plate is perforated with holes and comes with a foam sponge block filter. The foam block plate can be used when filter socks are not desired or in the case when the filter socks need to be changed or cleaned but replacements socks are not readily available but yet mechanical filtration is needed. In this case, simply remove the filter sock plate and install the perforated foam block plate and then place the included foam sponge block filter in place.

Adjustable Water Level

Water level in the sump is adjustable from 7” to 9.5” to accommodate for the water height requirements for different protein skimmers.

Self Adjusting Foam Block

As the water level is adjusted by sliding the wall up and down, the foam block sponge filter and the perforated plate that it sits on will also move up and down automatically. This is important to maintain the correct location of the foam block sponge filter with respect to the sump water height.

Probe Holder

All Emerald sumps come with a probe holder that can hold up to three probes. The two outside holes are 0.63” in diameter and the center hole is 0.8” in diameter to fit different sized probes.

Hose Holder

All Emerald sumps also come with 4 holes in the top support brace for holding in place 1/4” OD tubing from reactors, dosing pumps, ATO, etc.

    Product Rating:

    I have plans of building a new reef tank and ordered this sump due to the timing of it going on sale. This was my first purchase with Aquacave and I will be coming back. The item arrived within a few days and care was taken with the packaging to prevent any shipping damage. (Posted on 2/23/2016)

  3. highly reccomend Review by jersey mike
    Product Rating:

    awesome sump, large, and has the ability to run 2 or 3 return lines. Pictures do not show the plate that is interchangeable next to the filter socks (Posted on 7/31/2015)

  4. Fits my needs perfectly Review by flytens
    Product Rating:

    I ordered this Sump with some reservation because of the cost. However, After I received the well boxed package, I was very surprised to see the high quality. Worth every penny! (Posted on 7/22/2015)

  5. EXACTLY what I was looking for Review by Lamont
    Product Rating:

    I had a homemade sump that was having issues, so I started shopping around. This sump is HIGH QUALITY. Very little adjustment was needed to get the adjustable baffle where I wanted it. The mechanical filtration tray is genius. It's a shame that I have to hide this thing behind doors. No complaints whatsoever about this sump. Quiet, adjustable, packed to prevent damage, high quality construction. (Posted on 5/25/2015)
