The Blue Gudgeon Goby, Ptereleotris heteroptera, which is actually a type of Dartfish, is a unique and enchanting addition to marine aquaria. This peaceful species is geographically widespread, found in the rocky rubble zones of the Indian and Pacific oceans, where they can sometimes be found inhabiting the burrows of pistol shrimps (though no interaction between the two creatures has been observed to date, this is unnatural and likely an opportunistic behavior). Flaunting an elongated body of rich cerulean shades, P. heteroptera also presents a sweeping lyretail, often times accented with a delicate, yet impressive, threadlike filament.
In the home aquarium, P. heteroptera does best in an environment with plenty of rocky sanctuaries. This species should only be kept singly or as an established pair - even though they occur in groups in the wild, they are really groups formed of breeding pairs that cluster together for protection. In an aquarium, males do not tolerate one another well and when housed with related dartfishes may tear each other to shreds. Nobody knows if these are sequential hermaphrodites or gonochoristic, so it may or may not be risky to just buy two and throw them together - you don't want to ever end up with two males, unless the tank is very large.
A deep sand bed is a must for burrowing, and a minimum tank size of 30-gallons or more will do well to accommodate for their six-inch maximum length. When spooked, P. heteroptera may attempt to jump ship, so make sure you have a tight-fitting lid in place to prevent tragic and unnecessary loss. These are really timid fishes, and putting them in a tank with anything even remotely aggressive will make them hide all day, every day, denying you the pleasure of admiring your beautiful fish! An obligate carnivore, be sure to provide a mixed meaty diet of frozen and marine pellets daily.

Optical Sensors with Magnetic Mounts
Whether for your ATO reservoir, to use as a sump-high alert, or for your long term water storage such as a brute container, these optical sensors plugin into the FMM. In standalone use when used in your ATO reservoir (plugged into port-4), the FMM will stop your PMUP and sound an alarm when the sensor is above the water level. If you plug it into port-3, and mount it high in your sump, if your water level ever goes that high, an alarm will sound and your PMUP will stop operating.
$3,150.00Maxspect Commercial LED FloodLight F300
Maxspect has developed these commercial floodlights to be the No. 1 choice for public aquarium curators, the units are manufactured to the highest standard for this sector using the best quality U.S. made Cree™ LED chips only. The difference with a Maxspect commercial product to any other is that the curator can select the color temperature that they require for a particular display, for example, a freshwater system running with 8000K color temperature or a coral display with a 14000K color temperature. We can also manufacture the color spectrum specifically to suit your display requirements.
Maxspect offers a wide range of commercial LED floodlights, designed specifically for use in public aquariums, shopping malls, warehouses, museums, coral farms and other similar facilities - and with an IP65 rating (IP67 also available upon request).
Maxspect commercial floodlights have special reflective material inside similar to metal halide fixtures, this reflects the light from the LED creating a better
blend of the different colors housed within the unit, it also radiates light more efficiently from the fixture and giving better coverage.
The Maxspect commercial floodlights come with four different power options: F150, F300, F500 and F1000. These are aimed at different
sizes and depths of aquarium, as an example the largest F1000 unit can light down to depth in excess of 11m.
For the aquarium that wants a unique experience for their visitors, we are able to offer wireless link up of commercial floodlights and controlled by iOS/Android devices, this will enable the aquarium to simulate different weather conditions over large displays such as cloud cover or sunrise/sunset for the ultimate visual experience.
Our research and development team are actively working with public aquariums to develop new products that will enhance the appearance of displays and take visitor experience to the next level.
