RLSS Transfers US Distribution and Customer Support to CoralVue

Effective immediately CoralVue will be handling distribution of all Reef Life Support Systems (RLSS) products that include is popular protein skimmers and Waveline DC pumps to name a couple.  RLSS has grown in popularity over the last couple of years and RLSS is focusing it’s attention on developing new products like the up and coming Wavepuck.

Unboxing The RLSS Wavepuck

We here at AquaNerd have been chomping at the bit to test out and review the Wavepuck pre-production from Daniel Nguyen and his team at RLSS. The Puck itself fits in the palm of your hand and it’s low profile design is a blessing for any aquarium.  We just installed the Wavepuck on one of our 3 foot rimless aquariums and it’s really lifting up some detritus that has settled in the aquarium as a result of not having enough flow in the aquarium.  Below are pictures  of the unboxing and a surprise that you will notice in the last gallery picture.  Do you recognize what that is?  If you guessed it’s Neptune Systems Apex Ready then you would be correct!

Reef Life Support Systems WavePuck

Daniel Nguyen and the guys at Reef Life Support Systems (RLSS) have been working on an exciting new wave maker device known as the WavePuck.  Slightly smaller than a hockey puck, this is the 1st public viewing of the 3D printed prototype.  I first had a sneak peak at the device this past September at MACNA in Washington, DC  but until now I had to keep this information under lockdown until now. Daniel, the owner of RLSS in Canada, has developed a low profile magnetic pivotal wavemaker. At a nominal 1.5″ thick x 3″ footprint, it is now the lowest profile wavemaker device of its kind. Today RLSS announced plans to produce 4 models of the Wave Puck with the 1st model generating a maximum flow rate

Diablo DC3500 Controllable Pump Adds Flexibility to Your Flow Scheme

Direct current pumps, or DC pumps for short, are all the rage these days. They allow aquarists to have more control over the water flow speed of their system, making them ideal for most applications. They’re so popular, in fact, that you can find them from a broad spectrum of companies on a variety of protein skimmer bodies or operating as primary circulation pumps. One might even be hard pressed to find many aquarists complaining about them, and given the added functions that these pumps bring to the table, Reef Octopus has fully jumped on board. They have put these pumps into just about everything they can, with their newest product coming in the form of the Diablo DC 3500 circulation pump. This new Diablo DC 3500 is based off of the Waveline DC pump line from Reef Life Support Systems, but it has slightly different model numbers and specifications than those listed on the RLSS website. The Diablo version has a maximum flow rate of 925gph and a maximum head height of 9ft. Power consumption tips the scales at 30watts when the pump is run at full speed. The controller provides for six different speed settings, as well as a 10-minute food timer. Addtionally, the Diablo DC pumps feature a slow startup where the pump starts at zero RPM and slowly ramps up to the preset speed over a 10 second period. Because Diablo and Reef Octopus products are distributed through CoralVue, there was no public price given in the literature, but we expect pricing to be somewhere north of $150 for the DC 3500.
