The extraordinary ruins and priceless artifacts discovered from the early Egyptian civilization are the inspiration for our Ancient Egypt model. A winged scarab adorns the top of this unusual aquarium that is exquisitely crafted with carvings of symbolic deities and exotic aquatic inhabitants of the Nile delta. This is a complete set-up kit and it includes an advanced filtration system, a power compact lighting unit with bulb, "Kon Tiki" gravel substrate, and a 25 watt submersible aquarium heater. Just add filtered water and you are ready to go.
Each aquarium features a hand-painted, detailed sculpture. This sculpture is crafted using only the finest non-toxic materials available. As with any replicated aquarium décor, we recommend that the sculpture be rinsed in freshwater prior to set-up to ensure that any packing material residue or dust is removed from the tank before introducing fish.
Each River Treasures Collection® aquarium utilizes the latest technology in water filtration design and is equipped to function in a fresh water or salt water environment. The advanced 90 gph silent submersible filtration system effectively replicates the natural processes of waste removal with built in mechanical, chemical and biological capabilities, ensuring optimal water quality in your aquarium. Complete with a venturi valve to adjust the oxygen output and a rotating return for regulating surface agitation, the filter also allows you to control the direction and rate of the water flow. Convenient filtration media cartridges are ready to use and can be changed in seconds. All components are fully removable for easy access and cleaning procedures. The filter pads and carbon cartridges are standardized items and can be purchased at most aquarium retailers.
Like any artistic masterpiece, lighting is an imperative component to enhancing true beauty. From enhancing the colors of the detailed sculpture to accentuating the innate vibrant hues of each living species, lighting plays an integral role in creating a mood. The lighting used in all of our River Treasures Collection® aquariums is a custom UL rated lighting fixture with a brilliant 10 watt self ballasted, 6500K fluorescent bulb. Positioned and mounted above the reef to avoid obstruction and shading, the compact system evenly deflects light throughout the tank.
NOTE, all aquariums require a 30-45 day ''cycle'' period and one should only use ''starter fish'' or lesser expensive fish during this time. Consult your local tropical fish store for additional future fish choices.
