The NANO-GLO 4w - LED Refugium Light was created specifically for the 28g Nano Cube CF QUAD aquarium, which is sold having a transparent filtration system basket. But the design is so versatile that it can be used to light any small nano aquarium that usually can't support top lighting due to space constraints and fully enclosed canopies.

Refugium Benefits

Refugiums supply natural filtration as algae develops in a controlled area with lighting and water flow to export unwelcome nutrients such as phosphates and nitrates. They also help stabilize the pH and O2 levels constantly throughout the day by absorbing CO2 gas during evening hours once the main fish tank lights are off. And they are the perfect way to grow natural food sources that propagate and feed the aquarium naturally.

High-Intensity LEDs

The NANO-GLO 4w - LED Refugium Light LED's produce an awesome 70 lumens each whilst only taking in 1 watt per bulb. The new higher output design still creates minimal heat and lasts an amazing 40,000 hours.

Rear Mounted

The NANO-GLO firmly connects to the back wall of the aquarium via an integrated suction in the light housing and a floating magnet that is placed inside the filter chamber. This small design (3/4" width) discreetly is hidden and is placed out of the way of scheduled maintenance and cleaning. The impressive suction cup inside the aquarium will instantly float toward the surface when the light is removed preventing it from sinking to the bottom of the tank.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
