The Triton series is designed to work with the Triton method which is becoming increasingly popular as it does not require water changes, which no one enjoys. One of the main requirements for the Triton method is to have a refugium sized at roughly 10% of the display tank volume.
The TRITON26 refugium will hold over 6 gallons when at the highest water level setting (11.5) allowing it to support tanks up to around 75 gallons. Some of the features of the TRITON26 are. Independent water level control in refugium and skimmer sections. Media platform with foam filter block.Laser engraved water level indicator. Four position countersunk probe holder.
Quick connect 1/4 hose input fittings for dosing and ATO inputs, one in refugium section and four in return section. Aquamarine blue coloring accents, solid white bottom and smoke back and around refugium section to block light and prevent unwanted algae growth in other sections. The TRITON26 has 3 main sections. Water enters the sump through the input fittings. Water then flows through the large refugium section that has a lid to prevent noise and water evaporation.
Water then flows through the overflow teeth in the adjustable wall into Section 2. Section 2 is typically where the protein skimmer is located. Water purposely exits Section 2 by flowing under the aquamarine wall to allow proteins to remain at the surface maximizing the potential for the protein skimmer to extract from the system.
The water then flows through the media platform and foam filter block into Section 3. The media platform can be used to allow for several different filtration methods bag of carbon, bio balls, bio media, rubble rock, etc.
Section 3 is the return section where the return pump will sit, pumping water back to the display tank. Quick connect hose inputs for dosing and ATO (x1 in refugium, x4 in return). Cutout to allow mounting of refugium light. 4 position probe holder with countersunk holes. Adjustable water level in skimmer section.
Adjustable water level in refugium section. Water level in the skimmer section is adjustable from 7 to 9.5 to accommodate for the water height requirements for different protein skimmers. Simply move the adjustable wall to the desired height location (use the laser engraved water level indicator to assist) and then tighten the two bolts to hold in place.
Water level in the refugium section is also adjustable (from 8 to 11.5). The TRITON method requires higher flow rate through the sump than most other methods. Depending on your flow settings through the refugium and skimmer sections, water noise and splashing may be an issue.We made both levels configurable so you can fine tune based on individual needs.
