Marineland Introduces Lineup of New Aquatics Innovations
Marineland brand of Spectrum Brands Pet Care is revealing its new line of advanced products to consumers after previewing them at key trade shows earlier this year.
"To meet consumer needs and stay ahead of current trends, Marineland brand is designing aquariums to accent or feature in the room as a home décor element," said Eric Kenney, vice president, marketing at Spectrum Brands Pet Care. "We're introducing new features to help make aquariums do more as fishkeepers grow with the hobby."
Marineland is introducing several products that feature integrated filtration systems with new designs, innovative filtration components for ease of maintenance, and connected aquariums. The new products are available at retailers nationwide this season.
Marineland Exhibit Series Integrated Aquariums feature frameless, modern glass aquariums with glass canopy covers and stands. The stand design fits current trends, and can accent a living space. A 20-gallon cube, 25-gallon peninsula and 29-gallon cube are available in either black or oak finish. The environments are conceal an integrated, multi-stage filtration system located behind the stand. For easy access to feeding, there is a sliding glass canopy. Marineland Exhibit Series Integrated Aquariums also feature Wi-Fi connected LED lights, controlled through the new Marineland app, with nearly a dozen pre-set lighting modes or the ability to create your own lighting configuration.
New Marineland Penguin PRO and Emperor PRO Power Filters provide improved reliability, customization and power. The new filters use Rite-Size Cartridges with carbon, an improved BIO-Wheel with 10 percent more surface area and reliable operation with constant spinning, and Penguin Micron Filters to screen out fine particles. Designed with features typically found only in canister filters, Penguin PRO and Emperor PRO Power Filters have an additional media basket that holds reusable media bags, allowing aquarists to use the media of their choice. In addition to featuring a motor dampener that keeps these filters running quieter, the decoupled motor is submerged and self-priming, producing sounds less than 40 decibels.
New Marineland Expanded Filter Media options give the hands-on hobbyist the control to choose the filtration they want when they need it. The expanded offering, designed specifically for the new Emperor PRO and Penguin PRO Power Filters, includes color-changing Marineland Deionizing Resin to help remove waste, as well as self-cleaning Marineland K2 Biological Media that supports the growth of beneficial bacteria. Also available are reusable Marineland Carbon Bags, a Marineland Micron Filter for water polishing, and the Marineland Bio-Foam & PreFilter to filter out dirt and debris – each sold separately.
Marineland Portrait Desktop Kit offers easy setup and simple design. The 5-gallon glass aquarium features three-stage, hidden filtration with a Rite-Size Cartridge and Marineland Bio-Foam, and has an adjustable flow filter pump. The aquarium kit also includes bright white and blue energy-efficient LED lights, so fishkeepers can change the lighting to their liking to mimic the underwater effect of sunlight or a moonlight glow.
