3.5 L Tank

Display per page

Tank

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.

Lid

The lid is designed to create a mechanical enclosure to the tank and at the same time maintain an optimal visibility of the fish. It is made of transparent polycarbonate plastics, in the same color of the tank (there is no alteration of the light in the tank). The design features a hole for the inlet of the water (not flexible tube is required) and two cone-shaped holes for the introduction of food. The lid can be easily lifted (with water supply tap shut off) to gain accessibility to animals keeping the tank on the rack. The dome-shape allows keeping all the water evaporation inside the tank and moving all the relevant drops on the side, guaranteeing a perfect visibility at all time. The lid can sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F.

Siphon

Unique and patented system of constant siphoning action to guarantee absolute cleanliness of the tank reducing husbandry labor and increasing the quality of the water. The siphon is made of technical polymeric plastics, thus being capable to sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F. Its technical material is guarantee of no oxidation and corrosion processes.

Silicon Spring

The spring is the masterpiece to allow the proper functioning of the siphon when the tank is docked into the rack. Thanks to its elastic memory it does automatically raise the siphon positioning when the tank is removed off the rack, thus immediately stopping the siphoning action and avoiding any water spill. The spring is made of technical silicon and can sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F.

Baffle

The baffle has the specific object of mechanically dividing the housing compartment of the tank with the technical extraction portion. All baffles are made of polycarbonate plastics, and can sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F. Each baffle is designed to accommodate any specific fish need based on their developmental stage.

Nursery Insert

The nursery tank fits into Tecniplast 3.5 Liter housing tank allowing a continuous water (drop to drop is recommended) inlet flow. It is designed to promote fast growth of fry and to provide a confined area where fish can easily get access to the surface. Here they can inflate the swim bladder and easily find food, therefore saving precious energies. It features a 300┬Ám net with a solid lid and it is fully autoclavable at standard cycles (up to 250 F).

Divider

Its design allows the physical separation of the tank in two halves. It is meant to maximize animal density in a tank and to allow single housing husbandry conditions. The transparent plastics ensures the visual contact between the fish (even if housed in separate halves), thus providing a natural enrichment for the animals. The dedicated holes allow a good water circulation through the entire volume of the tank, maximizing water quality and debris removal. The divider can easily be inserted/removed by the operator (without the need of any tool) and it stays firmly in place thanks to the dedicated runners in-built in the tank design. It is designed to work with Tecniplast 3,5L tank only (ZB30TK). The divider is made in Polycarbonate plastics, and can sustain autoclave cycles up to 250 F
