  • Self adjusting foam block platform (PAT PENDING)
  • Dual platforms
  • Protein skimmer section
  • Refugium section
  • Sapphire blue coloring to block light and prevent unwanted algae growth in other sections

Interchangeable Plates

Each Sapphire 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 Sapphire 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 Sapphire 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.

  3. Stunning Review by Aaron
    Product Rating:

    Ordered this from aqua cave along with vertex130 shipping was separate but came quickly. The sump is direct ship and superior care was taken in packaging as well as delivery. This sump is stunning to look at and will be the pride of my system. It is a bit larger than I expected but fits in my stand and supports a large skimmer as the vertex130. Could not be happier that I purchased this (Posted on 12/17/2017)

    Great product looks great under the stand and excellent quality haven't filled the system with water I'm sure it will work great though. (Posted on 12/9/2017)

  5. Very good quality Review by Jake
    Product Rating:

    Just got this for a build I'm working on. Although I haven't used it yet the quality is better than expected. As I said have no thoughts on performance yet and it was a little bigger than I expected it to be even when the size was in the description but so far very impressed and will continue to buy trigger products from aquacave. I would also like to add really great shipping protection with a lot of padding. (Posted on 3/15/2017)
