Friday, September 13, 2019 5:23:41 PM America/Chicago

A World's First - Rossmont SX Protein Skimmer


The All New Rossmont Skimmer is an fascinating new protein skimmer from the Italian company that keeps producing innovative aquarium gear.

Newly Released - Trigger Systems Platinum Sumps

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 4:27:02 PM America/Chicago

Just Released - Trigger Systems Platinum Sumps


Trigger has been testing their PLATINUM series for over a year and a half to make sure they have a solid, proven design. This PLATINUM series includes an automated, continuous mechanical filtration that replaces filter socks. After testing several different designs it was discovered that having the fleece roll system sized to the sump is by far the most efficient. Trigger's fleece rolls have been lasting 4 to over 6 months, unlike filter socks that need to be changed every few days. Users have been reporting improved water quality, with some stating algae is no longer a problem. This new design will automatically roll new fleece to be filtered as soon as the fleece in the sump becomes dirty.

Trigger has created a diamond pattern for the water to flow through which follows the gem theme, but purposely uses the most surface area on the fleece. Maximizing surface area is key to this design that allows the fleece to last longer and to allow for greater water flow. They have tested this design up to 3000 gph without any flow problems, it was the biggest pump they had!

The PLATINUM line comes with a high torque motor to prevent burn up when pulling the fleece in high flow applications. As well as redundant shut off sensors to make sure the fleece roll stops when the return pump shuts off. Finally on all models (except the cube), the middle wall that separates the skimmer and refugium sections is move-able and removable allowing the user to ensure their skimmer fits and maximizing the area for the refugium. Or if they like the user can remove the wall and just have one large chamber.

Trigger Systems has clearly spared no expense on the PLATINUM line.





Additional Features:

- Four 0.25″ tubing quick disconnects for dosing and ATO
- Cord holders to secure wires, cables and hoses
- Polycarbonate lid over fleece area
- Four position probe holder
- Wire channels to hide wires
- Adjustable water level with self adjusting top platform
- Dual acrylic platforms with diamond cut out pattern
- Laser engraved water level markings
- Additional 1″ input fitting that can be placed along top brace

Klir Fleece Roller Filter Di-4

Tuesday, August 14, 2018 4:33:06 PM America/Chicago

Klir Fleece Roller Filter Di-4

Klir Fleece Roller Filter Di-4

The Patent Pending Klir Fleece Filter Di-4 fits directly into most 4in filter sock chambers that automatically unrolls new material as it gets clogged, removing suspended particles from your aquarium and producing crystal clear water.  Enjoy maintenance-free aquarium filtration for months at a time.

The Klir filter is a direct replacement for filter socks on sumps with sock trays. Simply remove your sock and insert the Klir.  As water passes through the Klir filter and the filtering material becomes saturated with waste, the water level will begin to rise.  When the water makes contact with the optical sensor, a motor is activated to advance clean filtering material. As clean material is exposed, water is now able to flow freely, lowering the water level in the sock tray and deactivating the motor. 

Klir's filtration provides three main benefits:

  1. Results in crystal clear water filtered down to 50-microns - double the filtering capacity of most filter-socks.
  2. Waste is removed from the water column before it has time to breakdown, helping to maintain low nutrient parameters!
  3. The constant chore of monitoring and swapping filter socks or other mechanical media every few days is eliminated for months at a time. Once the filtering media is exhausted, replacing it is a snap and very economical.
