Style and Design
The Ferplast Dubai 90 is a corner aquarium of Italian manufacture finished in quality materials which is, unfortunately, difficult to find in all its variations online in the UK. Although it is possible to purchase the tank and cabinet separately the manufacturer recommends that the supplied cabinet, which is purpose built to support the aquarium is used and we would echo this advice. Not only does the appropriate cabinet have a matching water resistant finish but it's constructed to support this particular tank which avoids any fitting or strenghtening difficulties which can arise with other cabinets whether bought separately or home made.
The tank is constructed of 8mm glass and fits neatly into the 180 litre (42 gallon) category. As such it's ideal for both freshwater and marine tropicals.
Lighting is supplied by two 24w T5 tubes built into the tank hood. An added bonus is a timer facility which enables the lights to be switched on or off automatically at preset times. This cuts out the necessity to use an external timer for this purpose. As you would expect a manual on/off switch is also available.
Filtration is by means of the patented Ferplast Bluwave integrated filter system, an internal filter system specially designed with removable pads and bulkheads for simple maintenance. The filter system supplies three stage filtration - biological, mechanical and absorptive to ensure that even the finest particles are removed from the aquarium water. The filter unit can generally be placed according to your own requirements and is provided with a selection of suction cups and hooks for this purpose.
Heating is by way of a Ferplast easily adjustable150w Blueclima heater.
