Hydor return pumpHydor has just joined the controllable pumps game with their new Hydor Seltz D. We’ve been waiting for a Hydor return pump for several years. And the revolution has finally come, with the new Seltz D debut.  It can be controlled through line-controllers, but the pump is powered by alternating current, not direct current as one might think at first sight. The Seltz D is a 6 pole pump, and it should therefore have a more linear functioning and smoother power ups and arrests. The controller allows the user to vary the intensity and to put the pump on pause to feed the tank. It currently lacks the ability to be controlled through the cloud, but this is not an indispensable feature, in all honesty. Especially when this alternating current, controllable pump has an extremely moderate price, made possible in part because it doesn’t have to have an inverter to switch from alternating to direct current. Hydor return pump Above, you can see the pump flow and the controller in action. We have high expectations for this pump and can’t wait to try it out. 

Hydor Seltz D Technical Characteritics

  There are 3 pumps, ranging from 6,000 to 12,000 liters an hour flow rate. Let’s see all of the new return pumps’ technical characteristics. 

Consumption Max head Flow rate
Seltz D 1600/6000 60 watt 4.2 m 6,000 l/h
Seltz D 2400/9000 75 watt 4.6 m 9,000 l/h
Seltz D 3200/12000 90 watt 4.8 m 12,000 l/h

  We appreciated how engineer Valerio Bresolin personally told us about it. His enthusiasm in introducing this pump, which Hydor invested a lot in, seeps through his words. Valerio Bresolin, danireef

The new Aqamai LRS ceiling lights

  Inside the booth there were two aquarium set ups, a marine one and a fresh water one, to show Aqamai‘s performance. Aqamai LRS ceiling light The marine aquarium featured an Aqamai LRM ceiling light (review) and a Aqamai KPM mobility pump (presentation). Below, you can see the gorgeous fresh water aquarium prepared by ITAU‘s Samuele Gamberini. Aqamai LRS ceiling light In the booth were also several Aqamai LRM ceiling lights for viewing, in black and in white casings. Splendid as well. 

 But the real standout for Aqamai was the introduction of the new Aqamai LRS ceiling light, which was essentially a cut-in-half LRM. Aqamai LRS ceiling light Gorgeous, consisting of 15 LEDs: 3 White Hot, 1 UV, 2 Indigo, 3 Royal Blue, 3 Blue, 1 Green, 1 Red A, and 1 Red B. Consumption is 50 watts, exactly half of its big sister LRM. Aqamai LRS ceiling light They are particularly suited for minireefs or nanoreefs with lower to average lighting needs, since if you want more you can obviously get the LRM. 
 Its declared output is extremely promising, with a maximum value of 69.5 micromoli/m2s, measured at a distance of 60 cm. Aqamai LRS ceiling light
