The tank is made of light blue polycarbonate for better visibility, providing the animals with a uniform environment in terms of light; this also inhibits the growth of algae. The tank, cleanable with no difficulty, features a smooth surface and sloping base, which eases all the dirty particles down towards the extraction zone. The unique and patented system of constant siphoning action guarantees absolute cleanliness of the tank reducing husbandry labor and increasing the quality of the water. All the dirty particles are conveyed to the extraction zone through a small slot between the housing area and the technical compartment. The baffle prevents the animals from being sucked up by the siphon.
The tank can sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F.
