Innovative Marine lauches external overflow NUVO EXT aquariums

By Leonard Ho - Posted Feb 19, 2018 09:00 AM
Innovative Marine is jumping aboard the external overflow trend with their new NUVO EXT aquarium line, which are essentially IM's excellent Fusion aquariums with external "Herbie" glass overflow boxes.

 

Innovative Marine supplied Advanced Aquarist with the following literature:

Built from the footprint of the Award-Winning Fusion Aquariums, the NUVO EXT is an Innovative Marine first. Its first to incorporate an all glass overflow, its first with a “Herbie” safety drain system and its first that allows 100% room for unobtrusive aquascaping.

The NUVO EXT’s External Overflow’s design unites beauty with purpose, taking a page from the tried and true Herbie style drain system. The dual drains work in tandem, reducing noise and prevention of accidental spillage and blockage. Creating silence, safety and redundancy.

Out of the box, the NUVO EXT is today’s modern reef ready system that is ready to be customized just the way you like it as well as the freedom for aquascape creativity.

The NUVO EXT are available in four models: 25 gallon, 30 gallon, 40 gallon, and 50 gallon.  Specifications for each model can be found below.   The NUVO EXT Lagoon 50 with optional APS stand is pictured on the right.
