In the sports car world, if you want the finest, you might get a Ferrari, Alfa Romeo or a Lamborghini. They’re all Italian and have a long reputation of excellently crafted products. The same quality Italian craftsmanship goes into the Elos Concept 80 Advanced Bundle aquarium. It makes a superb choice for displaying saltwater fish.
Elos is an aquarium manufacturer from Verona, Italy with worldwide distribution into the countries of the U.S., Mexico, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, France, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, China, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Qatar, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Singapore and Turkey. Nicola Gandini, the owner of Elos, puts a high value on carefully handcrafted aquariums. Anywhere from 170 to 340 procedures are used in the creation of a single Elos aquarium.
“Our aquariums are built by hand, one by one,” says Gandini. “We do not use machines or robots. We do not have assembly lines. We construct them one by one, using a few, well-trained craftsmen.” Known as an Italian-style craftsmanship, Elos aquariums are recognized worldwide as not only some of the finest, but as aquariums which retain a high value over time, since they’re meticulously built to last. “Simple, but complete,” are words used by Elos to describe their Concept 80 aquariums.
Low iron glass that’s amazingly clear is used to make the tank of the Elos Concept 80 aquarium. It holds 145 liters (38 gallons) of salt water. This tank measures 80 centimeters (31.5 inches) wide by 42.8 centimeters (16.875 inches) deep by 42.8 centimeters (16.875 inches) high. A uniquely curved transparent acrylic top enables visual inspection from above on this rectangular-shaped aquarium.
An external sump and a quietly-operating return pump are included in the Elos Concept 80 Advanced Bundle aquarium. Thorough oxygenation of the water is possible with this system. The mechanical filtration of the skimmer takes larger particles from your salt water and exclusive internal baffles are designed into the sump to sharply reduce the return of micro bubbles into the main aquarium. Plastic trim and a plastic lid complete a finished look on this sump.
Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting strips are used in the lighting hood on an Elos Concept 80 aquarium.
Aluminum is used throughout this device. Solderless gold connections ensure the finest electrical connectivity for your lights.
The Elos Concept 80 Advanced Bundle system includes a marine-quality Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) cabinet which is built strong enough to handle the 260 kilogram (570 pound) weight of the water-filled Concept 80 aquarium. This cabinet matches the rectangular dimensions of the glass tank above it and is 87 centimeters (34.25 inches) high. It includes a stainless steel door pull and a two-piece back that gives you quality cord management with passive venting capabilities.
Since Elos also specializes in marine additives and fish food, this advanced bundle includes the following:
