Sera is a German company, headquartered in Heinsberg, Germany, and started in 1970 by Josef Ravnak. His nickname is Sepp, so he took the first two letters of his nickname and the first two letters of his last name to create the company name of Sera. In the beginning, Sera used lyophilization, a process of freeze drying food in a way to retain nutrients and vitamins and store it at room temperature, to make fish food. Sera became an innovator in garden pond products. A bio-denitrator, a device to target the biological breakdown of nitrate in aquariums, put Sera on the worldwide aquarium stage.
Today, teams of Sera scientists work primarily on aquatic fish food development, biological aquarium and pond cleaning agents, algae control, aquarium filters, UV filters, CO2 units, pumps, lamps and testing equipment. Sera retailers are in the U.S., UK, Thailand, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein, Japan, Italy, Ireland, Germany, French Guiana, France, Chili, Czech Republic, Brazil, Belgium and Austria.
It’s easy to determine that scientists are involved with developing this freshwater aquarium, because the word “biotop,” which translated to English is “biotope,” is used in its title. A biotope is a region of identical environmental conditions. To keep freshwater fish alive, you need to maintain habitat that is stable or uniform. You need a specific biotope. The Sera Biotop LED Cube 130 XXL does just that.
Polished bow front glass measuring 51 centimeters (20 inches) wide, 66.5 centimeters (26 inches) high and 57 centimeters (22.5 inches) deep makes up the tank. It holds 130 liters (34 gallons) of water. A tough plastic top, bottom and back finish off the tank portion of this aquarium. Cleverly built into the back wall of this tank is a partition of the aquarium hidden from view that houses the filtering system and pump.
Energy-efficient Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting is hidden in the hood of this unit.
Inside are 12 white two-watt LED bulbs. The hood also houses two slowly rotating fans that keep electronic equipment cool, so that the temperature of your freshwater aquarium remains stable. Remember, you want to maintain the right “biotope.”
An internal filter, which is hidden in the back wall of the Biotop, contains the following:
