Eshopps CUBE Nano Refugium Information




The NEW Cube Nano Refugium features innovative design with dual water channels for superior aquarium filtration. It features two separate water channels; one channel sends water to the refugium section while the second chamber sends water to the protein skimmer chamber. This unique design enables the water to travel through each compartment separately after entering the sump for better water contact time and better nutrient exportation. The advantage of better water contact time thru the water channels is the undissolved organic waste can be removed more efficiently by the protein skimmer, while having a completely separate refugium channel that allows macro-algae to aid in the removal of ammonia, nitrates, phosphates and other unwanted nutrients that cause algae blooms and more.

  • Eshopps Channel Design (ECD, Patent Pending)-Dual Water Channel
  • Quiet Operation
  • Micron bag
Specifications
  • Dimensions: 14" x 14" x 16"

Quality/Nice size...but...

Comments: This is a decent nano sump. The construction, acrylic and seams are top-notch. I do wish all the water flowed first from the drain into the filter sock before going into the fuge. I get some detritus build-up in the bottom of the fuge area because of this. But I can live with that. My biggest complaint is really with the white acrylic dividers. I wish they had designed the compartments with something transparent rather than opaque white. It looks nice but when you set it up as intended (with the skimmer and fuge chambers facing forward) it's basically impossible to see into the drain and return chambers. This makes adjustments to my ATO or return pump and cleaning somewhat of a pain. It seems this should have been taken into consideration based on the sumps compact design(and ability to fit into smaller cabinets). I like the idea and the quality of the build but I'm not sure it was carried out as best it could have been.

Comments: This little sump is great, really happy with the fit and finish. I installed it on my Biocube 29, for more water in the system and better skimmer options. You can tell its well thought out and engineered well, it runs fairly quiet, fits well in my stock bio cube cabinet (I had to remove the cabinet shelf, but that’s to be expected). Overall I’m pleased with this purchased and the extra filtration it will bring to my Biocube.

Comments: My Eshopps Cube Refugium arrived today. I am impressed with the high quality construction and materials, and the unique design. It fits nicely under my 25 gallon cube aquarium and provides everything I wanted at half the price I expected to pay for a cube refugium. As always, shopping at Marine Depot was easy, and delivery was fast.

Comments: I upgraded from a CPR CR500 to this sump and glad I took the plunge. This sump feels extremely well built and has a lot of utility built into a small foot-print. Pros: 1) Compact Size contains Fuge and Skimmer compartments 2) Skimmer Compartment is large and should be useable for several different models 3) Use of white panels in the construction gives the sump a very modern look 4) Filter sock replacement is very easy Cons: 1) White panels can prevent vision in various chambers depending on how you position the sump 2) With this being meant for relatively small tanks, I would have preferred a larger Fuge area and smaller Skimmer chamber as there are several small skimmers on the market 3) Not all water flows through the filter sock (Fuge is fed first and by water that does not go through the sock 4) Cost - higher end of the cost scale for tank size it's recommended for Even though I listed several cons, these all only equate to 1 star lost for me. As a whole this Sump is a great option for smaller tanks and specifically smaller cube tanks since there has not been a lot of sump options in this size/shape.
