Description

Aquarium Evolution A very exciting thing happened during the CAD phase of designing the world's largest mantis shrimp tank... we accidentally invented something. A surface skimming standard overflow box housing a subsurface and surface skimming closed loop box!!! Essentially a closed loop box within an overflow box! Genius!! One of the challenges in super large aquariums is adequate water flow. In this case the tank was too large for circulation pumps. So we opted to install our even flow closed loop system where two pumps operate a series 1/2" Loclines replacing the need for individual pumps. This way we only need two pumps rather than 32. Check out the Aquarium Evolution CAD drawings below: Drawing 1: Shows the first design. Drawing 2: Shows the wider overflow box. Drawing 3: The proprietary solution.
