Summer Sale: Free Vertex Bio Pellets!

Receive a free 500ml bag of Pro-Bio Pellets when you purchase a Vertex UF-15 or Vertex UF-20 reactor!

Crystal clear displays are always the goal of any aspiring Reef Hobbyist. As mainstays of the hobby, Activated Carbons and Phosphate Absorbing Medias go a long way towards the fulfillment of this goal by absorbing many of the impurities that accumulate in the water column. Incorporating these medias into the systems has traditionally been accomplished with the aid of filter bags and/or cartridges. However, this is far from being the most effective means of utilizing these products as the medias compact, flow-through declines and the surface area contact becomes compromised. Vertex Universal Media Reactors provide a practical solution by fluidizing the given medias, thereby eliminating the problem of compaction and allocating complete control of flow-through to the user.

Vertex Universal Media Reactors feature our Quick-Lock Screw top which eliminate the need to remove screws in order to open the reactor for media exchange. The acrylic lid settles into a seated O-ring, allowing for leak-free seal and effortless removal. To make installation a breeze all necessary parts are supplied in order to hard-plumb the unit or connect via soft hose. Furthermore any necessary flow adjustment is possible using the high quality Valve supplied.

Reliable and functional design, assembled with high quality cast acrylic; Vertex Universal Media Reactors represent a constant endeavor to increase value without sacrificing quality.

Vertex Pro-Bio Pellets:

A milestone in probiotics system implementation, management and maintenance. Consisting of 100% pure PHA bio-degradable polymers, Vertex Pro-Bio pellets provide a pure steady supply of organic carbon fuel source for bacterial growth in aquaria. Both aerobic and anaerobic strains demonstrate increased population and colonization. This can result in improved biological filtration, water clarity as well as providing your system with necessary bacterial plankton to nourish other organisms, filter-feeders and corals.

Use 50 - 200 ml of media per 100 liters of net system water volume. Use in fluidized media filter or passively in an area with adequate flow. Lack of proper water movement or overdosing can result in production of Hydrogen Sulfide which has a foul rotten egg smell. Always start with smaller dosage and gradually increase to required dose. Rapid changes in water parameters can harm your animals. Not recommended to use in conjunction with Phosphate removers. Ozone injection and or UV filters can be used however not recommended. Suitable to use in fresh water, saltwater systems and Ponds. Provide proper system oxygenation or protein skimmer if used in Saltwater applications. Vertex Aquaristik cannot be held accountable for any loss of livestock and or any other damages due to misuse of this product may cause

Ultralife DUAL UV Sterilizer & Ozone Generator Now Available

Now available at Premium Aquatics is Ultralife's Dual UV Sterilizer and Ozone Generator!

You have heard of UV Sterilizers, right?
How about Ozone Generators?

Of course. Well, Ultralife has taken these to the next step, by combining both into one unit. The Ultrazone-DUAL.

Ozone is by far the best way to boost your water quality. The Ultrazone-DUAL cleans up aquarium water by removing unwanted organic decay, proteins and pollutants. By eliminating harmful organics, ozone increases the longevity of all marine life. These units manufacture ozone by passing oxygen molecules over a specially designed light source. The active oxygen is used to create superior water quality, providing aquarium inhabitants with a clean environment for living and reproducing.

The Ultrazone-DUAL is designed in such a way that the same light source used to produce ozone, is encased and a special quartz glass sleeve to generate UV light. As water flows past this quartz sleeve it receives the many benefits of UV sterilization.

The Ultrazone-DUAL units work equally well with with venturi reactors or venturi protein skimmers. Allowing for a maximum flow rates up to 1000 GPH, these units are designed to be used with your favorite water pumps.

The features include: water tight gasketted housing, hard quartz sleeve, inline bulb replacement, high efficiency remote electronic ballast as well as a compact design. Made in the USA and has a 1 year warranty on the Unit and Ballast, and 30 days on the Bulb and Quartz Sleeve.

The Ultrazone-DUAL is an excellent choice for Freshwater, Saltwater and Pond applications.

Based on a 70,000 æW sec/cm2 (microwatt seconds per square centimeter) the flow rates are as follows:

40 Watt UV Unit 1000 gph

By changing the flow rate through the unit you will change the effective "kill power" of the UV unit.

For example: If you only allow 500 gph thru the unit, you will effectively increase the kill power to 140,000 æW sec/cm2 (microwatt seconds per square centimeter). And also the opposite, by increasing the flow rate you will lower the "kill power".

We have included a chart to help you calculate your flow rate depending on the "kill power" needed for the corresponding Micro-Organisms.

Waterborne Algae 15,000 to 30,000 æW sec/cm2
Common Bacteria 15,000 to 30,000 æW sec/cm2
Protozoa (Ich) 45,000 æW sec/cm2
Fungi 45,000 æW sec/cm2

The Ultrazone-DUAL is designed for safety, performance and low maintenance. These generators do not require air dryer as is the case with other ozone generators and can be used with aquariums up to 600 gallons and have bulb life of approximately 9000 hours.

The Standard model allows for continuous UV & Ozone production or when used with an ORP controller, both the UV and Ozone Production turn on & off as the controller calls for ozone.
