Important Safeguards
To guard against injury, basic safety precautions
should be observed, including the following:
8. Do not install or store the appliance where it will be
exposed to weather or temperatures below freezing.
1. Read and follow all safety instructions and important
notices in these instructions as well as on the product
9. Make sure any component mounted on a tank is
securely installed before operating it.
10. Ensure input voltage is the same voltage as your
local power supply.
2. This appliance is not intended for use by children
or infirm persons without supervision. Young children
should be supervised to ensure that they do not play
with the appliance.
11. If an extension cable is used it should have the
proper rating. Care should be taken to arrange the cord
so that it will not be tripped or pulled.
3. To avoid possible electric shocks, special care
should be taken since water is employed in the use
of aquarium equipment. For each of the following
situations do not attempt repairs yourself. Return the
appliance to an authorised service facility for service or
discard the appliance.
12. A G.F.C.I (Ground fault circuit interrupter) & surge
protector is recommended for all electrical appliances.
13. Ensure your hands are dry when turning the power
switch on/off and when inserting/removing the power
cable from the socket.
a. If the appliance or any electrical component of the
appliance (non-immersible equipment only) falls into
the water or gets wet, do not reach for it. Unplug it and
then retrieve it.
14. If you are in any doubt about the electrical installation
or safety of this product you must consult a qualified
b. If the appliance shows any sign of abnormal water
leakage, immediately unplug it from the power source.
15. This product is intended for indoor use only.
c. Carefully examine the appliance after installation. It
should not be plugged in if there is water on parts which
are not intended to be wet.
d. Do not operate the appliance if it has a damaged
cord or plug, or if it is malfunctioning, or dropped or
damaged in any manner.
4. A “drip loop” (see graphic) should be arranged for
each cable connecting an aquarium to a power supply.
The drip loop is the part of the cable below the level of
the power supply. It prevents water travelling down the
cable and coming into contact with the power supply. If
the plug or the socket does get wet, do not unplug the
appliance. Disconnect the fuse or circuit breaker that
supplies the power to the appliance, then unplug and
examine for presence of water in the socket.
For Guarantee Conditions, please refer to the
Guarantee form that is enclosed with this product.
5. Always unplug the appliance from the electrical outlet
when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts,
before any type of maintenance or cleaning.
All products are supplied with fitted plugs. This plug
should not be tampered with in any way or removed.
Removal or tampering with the plug invalidates our
guarantee offered with this product.
6. Never yank the cable to pull it from the socket. Pull
the plug carefully to disconnect.
For UK a 3 pin adaptor is supplied with the product and
this must be used.
7. Do not use the appliance for reasons other than
the intended use. The use of attachments that are not
recommended or sold by the manufacturer may cause
the product to be unsafe. This is not recommended.
The external flexible cable of this luminaire is not
replaceable. If the cable is damaged, the luminaire
must be destroyed.

Set Up Instructions
Refer to previous page for location of filter
7. Place the lid on the protein skimmer and
the larger lid on the filter.
1. Consider where you are going to place the
aquarium. Keep it away from direct light or
areas with large temperature fluctuations.
8. Wash the substrate that will be used in the
aquarium. In order to do this, place a portion
of the substrate into a bucket and run water
through it, churning with your hand. Continue
until the water running out of the bucket is
clear. Place the washed substrate into the
2. Place the aquarium on a flat level surface
strong enough to support its weight. We
recommend a genuine aquarium cabinet (sold
separately) rather than general household
furniture. Ensure there is sufficient access to
the rear of the aquarium in case adjustments
need to be made to the light unit.
9. Add any rocks or ornaments into the
aquarium. Place the heater in the aquarium,
following the instructions supplied with the
heater. DO NOT turn the heater on when it is
not submerged.
3. This aquarium comes assembled but it
is important to ensure all connections are
firmly fitted and have not come loose during
10. Assemble the light unit as shown below.
Note the 4 screws on each support arm. There
is an extendable section shown between
screws 2 and 3. This can be raised and
lowered to adjust the height of the light above
the aquarium.
4. Remove the filter from the aquarium. The
filter will slide vertically out of the aquarium
and this will allow access to pump and
plumbing connections within the filter. Once
all connections are checked, place the filter
back into the aquarium.
5. The ceramic noodle bag will come packed
tin a plastic bag, this bag needs to be removed.
The ceramic noodles are located beneath a
drip tray. Using the handle on the drip tray,
lift it out to access the ceramic noodles. The
carbon cartridge can also be accessed in the
same way.
6. Locate the filter outlet fitting.
Screw the fitting into the outlet located at the
top, centre of the filter. Ensure the outlets are
facing slightly downwards in the aquarium.
11. It is now time to fill the aquarium with water.
Ensure the salinity/specific gravity is at the
Set Up Instructions
correct level and, if using synthetic salt mix,
add water conditioner any time new water is
added to the aquarium.
Feed your fish as per instructions on your fish
food container.
12. Ensure all power cables are dry and plug
the light, heater and powerhead cables in at
the power outlet. Switch the power on.
Check temperature
Ensure all equipment is running correctly.
13. It may take a few days for the protein
skimmer to function correctly. It is important
to check the skimmer in this time and adjust
the water level as needed. To do this, turn
the water level adjustor clockwise to raise the
water level and anticlockwise to lower it.
Ensure there is sufficient water in the aquarium.
When the water level drops due to evaporation
the return pump will begin to suck air, resulting
in fine bubbles being distributed through
the aquarium. When topping up evaporated
water, always use dechlorinated tap water or
suitably filtered water. When water evaporates
from the aquarium, salt remains in the water
so topping up with salt water will increase the
salinity of the aquarium. Check salinity after
topping up.
Test water parameters including pH, ammonia,
nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, carbonate hardness
and specific gravity (salinity). If you are keeping
coral or other sensitive marine animals you
may wish to perform further testing. Seek
advice from your marine aquarium specialist.
Use quality test kits, Aqua One have a range
of test kits (sold separately) which will allow
you to easily and accurately monitor your
water quality.
Some species require specific water
conditions. Please seek advice from your
marine aquarium specialist.
FORTNIGHTLY: 25% water change

protein skimmer and return pumps.
3. Remove the pumps from the filter and place
the filter back into the aquarium.
3. Check the pH, temperature and specific
gravity of both the aquarium water and the

to be made to the new water. You may want
to purchase a second heater to warm the new
4. Remove the impellers from both pumps. In
order to do this, turn the impeller cover on the
front of the pump 90° and pull it away from the
5. Rinse the impeller in fresh water. In the
event that there is significant calcium buildup
on the impeller (or any other part of the pump)
it can be soaked in a container of vinegar for
24 hours. Any vinegar used should be rinsed
off in fresh water before being placed in the
4. Once the water is ready to use, remove
the light unit and glass lid and place them
somewhere safe away from the water where
they will not be broken or damaged.
5. Turn the heater and pumps off.
6. Place a towel on the floor in front of the
