Introducing, The Versa Series Aquarium
The Versa aquariums are an amalgamation of high-performing and high quality materials to accomplish an amazing full range aquatic vision.

Versatile filtration system
The Versa filtration system includes a spacious 3-chamber sump, allowing compatibility for all CAD Lights equipment for a light reef to a full heavy loaded marine ecosystem. The sump fits in mostly all in-sump equipment in the industry (, such as protein skimmers, media reactors, and UV sterilizers etc).

42 Gallon Versa Series
This is a very interesting size: specially designed to be a "Bridge" between a Nano to a full sized aquarium. Great for a small Nano reef set up, fish friendly and makes a great heavy loaded reef system as well due to its spacious depth and length proportions. Also an added advantage is its extra large 3 chamber and high speed filtration.

Great Tank

Reviewers Rating Excellent!

Experience Level: Intermediate

Comments: The tank,sump and cabinet are well built. Comes with everything to get this up and running. The only bad thing about this tank is that the instruction on putting the tank together could be a whole lot better. I built aquarium stands in the past so it was ok for me. But someonewho has never built one would have trouble. But againe this is a nice setup.
