The new Aurelia jellyfish aquariums

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jan 29, 2014 09:00 AM
In collaboration with Tunze, Reef Eden (UK) has developed a new line of high-end all-in-one jellyfish aquariums with functionality and simplicity designed into modern, sleek lines. The Aurelia jellyfish AIOs will premiere in Europe and make their way globally soon after. US prices are yet to be finalized but early estimations are $900.00 for the Aurelia-80 and $1600.00 for the larger Aurelia-220.

 

The literature and photos below were supplied to Advanced Aquarist by Reef Eden:


Be it at home, the office, corporate headquarters, hotel foyer, restaurant or bar, the Aurelia Jellyfish aquarium range with its stunningly modern, sleek and seductive styling can fit easily into virtually any surroundings and bring a calm relaxed atmosphere, whilst also captivating onlookers who are fascinated by the beautiful rhythmic pulsing of its translucent inhabitants as they change colour under a high-tech energy efficient LED lighting system.

Built in the UK, and designed exclusively at Reef-Eden by a professional aquarist with over 30 years’ experience in designing and running saltwater aquariums of all types, the Aurelia Jellyfish System was specifically designed to incorporate all of the key requirements and latest technology required for keeping jellyfish successfully. And not just for a few months like some less advanced systems, but for their entire life spans, whilst still making the system incredibly simple to use and maintain, even for a complete novice.

The Aurelia series is available 2 ideal sizes. The smaller Aurelia-80 desktop (shown above) which is perfect for situations where size and location are an important factor, and the larger Aurelia-220 with optional cabinet for those looking for maximum impact and presence.

aurelia4.jpgKey features include:

  1. High quality cast acrylic construction combined with CNC machining to give a superb fit and quality feel to all components
  2. A fully modular design that allows easy maintenance and cleaning, with full access to allow complete removal of all components inside the aquarium within minuet’s, including filtration devices, media towers, and slide in diffuser plate.
  3. The open topped design facilitates maximum gas exchange to maintain a more stable pH, with removable US style top brace/Trim on the main display that allows you to run the aquarium in rimless fashion for that ultra-sleek modern look.
  4. Computer designed Kriesel flow system to generate just the right amount of water motion to push the jellyfish gently around in smooth vertical circular trajectory.
  5. Zero-risk diffuser plate that allows a constant maximum flow of water to the filtration system from the main display with no danger of clogging or flow restriction over time. This means the Jellyfish are kept safe and secure in the display area and won’t get trapped against grills or other potentially harmful surfaces.
  6. aureliacomline.jpgHigh capacity easy to maintain filtration system incorporating equipment from world renowned manufacturer Tunze, includes combined surface skimming and bottom scavenging, a secondary large volume bio-media tower with 2.78 ltrs capacity, and a zero risk-bubble free design that eliminates the possibility of potentially harmful bubbles making their way into the main display. The larger Aurelia 220 also comes complete as standard with a Tunze DOC protein skimmer to account for its larger stocking potential.
  7. A fully remote controlled LED lighting system that allows virtually unlimited colour selection, plus a wide range of pre-set modes that deliver everything from pulsing light, to strobe and variable speed automatic colour transitions.
  8. Additional discreet rear ports that allow linking of multiple aquaria or connection to remote secondary filtration systems or chiller if required.
  9. Each aquarium also comes complete with a CD featuring a full user manual, Free PC Desktop wallpapers, a handy Jellyfish keeping guide. Plus a handy syphon tool for base cleaning and general maintenance.
