28G Nano Cube CF-QUAD The Ultimate Reef Series Biotope!
JBJ introduces the newest addition to the 28G family of reef biotopes. The new CF-Quad is equipped with an integrated 105 Watt Compact Fluorescent Quad Lamp and state of the art Electronic Ballast for high intensity light output with low energy consumption. The 28G CF-QUAD definitely is the most value packed all-in-one in its class and price level. It offers almost 50% more light output than competing CF brands, 2 Powerheads, an Ocean Pulse Duo Wavemaker, removable transparent filter basket (for easy Refugium conversions), designated Heater column, designated Protein Skimmer column (sold separately), 2 Cooling Fans, and 4 Nite-Vu LED’s with their own power supply.
The revolutionary CF-QUAD boasts 105 watts of high intensity daylight light output with our 10K/7100K combo compact fluorescent lamp. It utilizes a very compact size while delivering MEGA lumens to your corals. The quick-disconnect harness makes changing the lamp quick & easy. Nite-Vu LED’s are strategically placed on all four corners to even distribute moonlight throughout the aquarium. All LED’s are pre-wired individually for easy replacement, consume less than 1 watt of power, but are strong enough to illuminate nocturnal behaviors.
Integrated Cooling System – The secret to our cool running top is our artistic canopy which also serves as a key component in heat dissipation. All canopies are made from flame retardant ABS plastic. The 2 cooling fans automatically turn on/off with the main CF-QUAD lighting system. A thermal protector is also added to automatically shut off the lighting system in the event the fans fail, it will automatically turn back on once temperatures reach safe conditions.
Easy Feeding – New feeding lid is lighter than the previous full front lid and allows quick access for feeding and retrieving water samples without lifting the entire canopy.
Smart Filtration – The filter starts as water enters the center overflow. Water is directed into our 3-Stage Filter Media Basket, which is installed with a mechanical sponge, chemical activated carbon and biological ceramic rings. Our unique 3-Stage Filer Media Basket can host a variety of chemical medias to suit your needs. Cleaning is especially easy since all you have to do is lift up on the basket and watch the water drain out the bottom for a simple and dry filter change. All baskets have a sliding door for added convenience.
Nothing to Hide – Our newly designed filter basket is now transparent for easy refugium conversions. Simply add macro algae (eg. Chaeto) into chamber one and chamber two. We recommend leaving the activated carbon in chamber three with a small piece of the mechanical sponge before the water exits to prevent algae from clogging pumps.
Creating Motions in Captive Oceans – Our redesigned Ocean Pulse Duo Wavemaker now incorporates a memory chip for flawless performance after a power failure. The wavemaker creates turbulent currents for a more natural reef environment. You can set it from 10 seconds to 6 minute alternating cycles. Water is returned via 2 directional return nozzles on each side of the center overflow for even, natural flow.
