| Tank Standard Features
|To help you succeed in keeping your lobsters, crabs, shellfish, fresh and saltwater fish, and other live seafood healthy, fresh, and appetizing with minimal effort, we have incorporated the following features into all Poseidon systems and tanks:
1. PREFILTER A
This double-layered filter pad traps particulate matter and prevents surface blockage of biological media. It is located above the crushed stone bed and can be changed in a minute.
2. PREFILTER B
An additional prefilter, this bio-filter is located above the activated carbon.
3. BIOLOGICAL FILTER
A big bed of crushed stones aids in the rapid accumulation of marine life supporting bacteria.
4. ACTIVATED CARBON
Highest-grade activated carbon removes dissolved low molecular weights and organic unsightly color and odor. The high efficiency and efficacy of our filtration system keeps the water cleaner and purer for a longer period of time.
5. CIRCULATION PUMP
A heavy-duty pump ensures rapid water circulation for increased oxygenation
6. HEAVY-DUTY REFRIGERATION UNIT
A thermostatically controlled and hermetically sealed refrigeration unit with an adjustable thermostat allows you to adjust the water temperature to suit variations in livestock and conditions.
7. UNIQUE WATER RESERVOIR
The Marine Research Institute recommends a ratio of one gallon of water per pound of lobster. With a top acrylic tank for live display and a bottom water holding reservoir, all Poseidon systems and tanks are designed to provide the needed ratio - drastically reducing the mortality rates.
Poseidon systems and tanks are so efficient that the water needs to be changed only a couple times a year. *
