Cubic Aquarium Systems Orbit 20 Jellyfish Aquarium Kit - 6 gallon

6G8011

This item has been discontinued.

The Orbit 20 is a stunning 6 gallon (23 liter) marine aquarium and is perfect for keeping jellyfish at home or on your desktop. The LED illuminated tank is designed for juvenile or smaller jellyfish species and provides the perfect entry to the fascinating world of jellyfish keeping.

Construction
As with all our products, this jellyfish aquarium is made using the best quality components and the highest quality acrylic available. The aquarium only utilizes one moving part, a small DC pump. This means the tank is almost silent when in operation. The tank components are cut to shape using extremely accurate CNC technology. Unlike most mass produced aquarium products our aquariums are assembled and polished by hand in small batches ensuring a finished product of the highest quality

Filtration
The flow in the tank is designed to keep your jellies away from the water outlets and the filtration system will maintain the water quality at optimal levels for your jellies to thrive. The filtration is neatly hidden in the outer ring of the aquarium. The water first passes through a sponge particle filter where any uneaten food or detritus is removed. The water then passes over highly porous, ceramic bio media where bacteria break down any remaining unwanted chemicals in the water.

Lighting
This Orbit 20 comes with an in built LED lighting system which is controlled by a remote control, allowing you to change the light color, set the tank to scroll or flash through various colors or change the brightness from anywhere in the room.

Manufacturer Info

Cubic Aquarium Systems Ltd. was founded in 2010 by a team of aquarists who met in the public aquarium industry. We set out with a goal to use our expertise and experience to come up with a range of extremely high quality aquarium products focusing on specialized and unusual marine species. We first turned our attention to jellyfish which have very specific requirements when housed in an aquarium. Using the knowledge gained from years of experience working with these creatures we designed the one of the first retail jellyfish aquariums on the market.

REVIEW
I have had this little Orbit 20 up and running in a classroom for about 2 months. It is a clever design with a donut-shaped compartment for biofilter and pump hidden behind the dark trim ring. It is working great for 2 moon jellies, though I have nothing to compare it to. It is a mini kreisel tank l...Read More
