    The new Vertex Aquaristik website is up and running. Take a look at some of the available products, and subject title teases of what’s to come. Currently the Vertex metal halide ballasts are available in 175, 250, and 400w, while the 150w is still under development.  Matching metal halide bulbs are also planned along with test kits, media reactors and water pumps.

    We spoke with Vertex and have been informed that dosing pumps are being worked on in Europe right now, and as we previously announced an external cone skimmer is in the works confirmed as the Omega series.

    New information regarding the internal Alpha Cone skimmer series has also just been released for the 170, 200, and 300 models. The skimmer pumps for the 170 and 200 have not yet been finalized, but the 300 will reportedly utilize dual Mini RD 1500s for 3600lph of air intake. Full stats below via PA.
