Reef A Palooza Orlando 2022 New Product Showcase

by | May 5, 2022 | Equipment | 0 comments

During this year’s Reef A Palooza Orlando, many companies stepped up to showcase their latest and greatest for us reefers. I went through the show floor on Sunday evening to briefly showcase these products for you. (A more in-depth video will be coming for these products individually)

1.) Eshopps Deskmate Attractive, an all in one pico tank that stands tall at 3.8 gallons

2.) Clearwater Scrubber V2. Unbelievable amount of improvements on the already very effective and popular waterfall style Algae Scrubber. This just may be the closest thing to perfection when it comes to this style of algae scrubber.

3.) Geo’s Reef Dual Reactor Sumps. Geo’s Reef has been a phenomenal force in making display-worthy sumps for many years. Now they are making dual-reactor ready sumps available to the general public without people having to pay a custom fee. Who said sumps can’t be both beautiful and effective?

4.) GHL’s Versia Controller in partnership with Sicce‘s pumps. GHL, a top manufacturer in the controller world, has released their version of a wavemaker return pump with Sicce OEM. To control these pumps in their ecosystem, they have released a Versia controller, which will connect the pumps to the Profilux controller and allow end users to create various types of flow for their systems and applications.

5.) I really like this one. It’s really a shame that I got to this way to late in the day to talk with them more. The brand that I am talking about is Smarter Reef’s Skimmer and they have wowed me with several products that showed considerable outside of the box thinking; it left a lingering feelings of wanting to know more and more, and the more I think of it, the more impressed I have become. To dive a little bit into it, these products are utilizing fleece rollers that clean themselves of the skimmate, completely eliminating the skimmate collection cup and the need to service your skimmer every other day. ATS’s fleece roller works in a similar way, removing all the algae for you so you don’t have to.
6.) VCA’s Nano RFG. This was an item that was released a few weeks prior to RAP but didn’t get as much attention as it should have. One of the single most important things in your reef aquarium is flow and in nano tanks flow is hard to utilize due to limitations on size in both gallons and actual footprint. This item removes that worry from the equation by removing and replacing the provided loc line to create more randomly dispersed flow in that little nano/pico aquarium. Adaptors are now available for ANY major brand aquarium manufacturer’s product.
7.) Last but not least, we found Luna Reef’s Arc Aquarium Sump line. Made in Florida, I first came to hear of their quality from the guys at World Wide Corals. When I first looked at their custom build, I was blown away at their precision, stylish finish, and how well thought out it was designed. They released this line just in time for RAP Orlando and I was really happy to see this first hand and get a feel for their craftsmanship and ingenuity.

Special mention but not featured: Red Sea‘s Reef Mat Smartest filter fleece roller is now on the market, it’s an app that tells you the status of the motor and how much filter fleece material is left, and is overall a VERY well thought-out and well made product. In-depth video will be coming soon with an interview with Scott from Red Sea.

Hope you guys enjoyed the video and let me know which one was your favorite!
