Tunze DOC Skimmer 9404 compact
The trend within the nano aquaristics area is continuing. This type of tank is already often being offered with cabinet technology. If the question of the skimmer is addressed, you will find a multitude of models which are often too big, too expensive, or too inefficiently dimensioned. Thanks to the experience we’ve been able to gain in the field of motorized skimmers since 1963, we were able to develop the successful Comline®DOC Skimmer 9004 four years ago. The unit is highly compact with minimum space requirements, and it can operate efficiently in nano aquariums with up to 250 liters (66 USgal.). This model can also be used in cabinet filters with a variable level from 80 to 250 mm (3.1 to 9.8 in.) thanks to the specially designed container 9004.500. It is able to compensate water level fluctuations without the need for a constant adjustment, it contains a durable controllable Comline® pump and a post filter just like any DOC Skimmer cabinet. The Comline® DOC skimmer 9004 can function optimally in this 9004.500 container just like in any customized aquarium. Therefore, it offers the benefits of our larger models such as the easily removable cup, the Anti Over-foaming System and the Flash Skimming feature. The DOC Skimmer 9404 compact is very easy to install, features silicone feet for a completely silent operation and can be easily positioned in every nano cabinet filter.
Removable post filter enables a perfect added mechanical filtration down to 300 µm using nylon fibers with only a minor biological action. This ensures that no unwanted nutrient and nitrate deposits can develop in case of longer cleaning intervals. The filter can be filled with other filter media, such as activated carbon or phosphate absorbers.

"The Whale pump" by Roman J., McCarthy JJ (2010) :
A study in 2010 has attributed to whales a positive influence on the productivity of ocean fisheries, in what has been termed a "whale pump."
Whales carry nutrients such as nitrogen from the depths back to the surface. This functions as an upward biological pump, reversing the assumption of some scientists that whales accelerate the loss of nutrients to the bottom.
They note that this nitrogen input in the Gulf of Maine is "more than the input of all rivers combined," some 23,000 metric tons each year.

Compound granulated food for pond fish particularly suitable for Koi fish, it is enriched with ingredients that enhance the splendid colour of this kind of fish.
A liquid high concentrate of non-toxic bacteria (40 million bacteria per ml) carefully selected for their capacity in breaking down organic matter and for transforming ammonia in aquariums. This product can be used in new or existing fresh and saltwater aquariums to transform highly toxic ammonia into nitrites and nitrites into nitrates. NITRIDAC actually causes the rapid degeneration of organic compounds reducing the build up of sediment or mud, restores aquarium walls and beds preventing the formation and growth of algae and also prevents an increase in nitrites.
