Manufacturer Info

Marine Depot was started in 1998 by a self-professed reef geek and pre-med student Ken Wong. Ken envisioned a one-stop shop where customers could find everything they needed, from technical product specifications, reef aquarium information, expert advice on the hobby and friendly one-on-one customer support. Having grown from a one-man crew to being one of the world’s largest suppliers of reef and marine aquarium products, this very core philosophy still lives strong in the Marine Depot culture 20 years later.

I love how this bracket has a guard to go over the switch that keeps anything from getting to the switch and causing a false reading and possible flood. The magnet makes it super easy to use it almost anywhere.
