CADE Aquariums combine unique sophistication with functional design to produce luxurious Aquarium systems.
CADE are passionate about nature and even more passionate about producing high quality Aquarium systems. They believe that appreciation leads to preservation.
Aquatic environments form the largest and most diverse ecosystems on our planet supporting millions of species of flora and fauna. Unfortunately very few of are free from the effects of human impact. We hope that our small contribution in encouraging the ‘nature aquarium’ hobby helps to attract much needed attention to the beauty and sensitivity of pristine freshwater and marine ecosystems.
CADE are aquarists designing for aquarists.
CADE knows exactly what ‘Aquarists’ want because at the very heart of the organisation are aquarists just like you. Lead Aquarium designer Adam Dalton is a professional Aquarist who is also the Director of CADE Australia and CADE Internationals Business Development Manager.
The CADE Reef Series 2 range of customisable Mini Reef Aquariums is an intelligently designed foundation that enables the aquarist to build a truly personalised Reef Aquarium system without limitation.
Highest clarity aquarium glass and perfectly cut silicone edges
Rimless high clarity Opti-Clear tank with flat polished edges glued constructed with the highest quality German 'Wacker' silicone available for aquarium use.
Silicone is precision applied to produce perfect gaps and razor sharp minimalist finish. We use clear silicone only!
Black silicone hides imperfections like air bubbles or silicone separation.
White laminate is pre-applied to the underside of the tank to increase light reflection.
Slimline glass weir with surface and low-level intakes
The Reef S2 slimline glass weir is neatly concealed behind the rear glass panel offering an uninterrupted view of your Aquarium.
Both surface skimming and low-level water intakes enable superior uptake of heavier debris that would otherwise fail to reach surface intakes on regular weirs.
How does it work? Behind the intake vents is a sealed glass channel that receives water from the low intake and directs it to the top of the weir. The panel prevents direct flooding into the weir and directs debris to the surface via the channel where it is efficiently sucked into the drainage system preventing sediment accumulation in the weir.
Gravity-fed ATO reservoir neatly concealed behind tank
The rear wall of the Reef S2 models conceals our weir and a large capacity Auto Top Off (ATO) freshwater reservoir which replenishes evaporated water via a gravity fed float valve positioned in the return pump chamber of the sump filter.
We think this is the smartest way to achieve large RO volumes without compromising valuable sump filtration space.
Our focus is to provide an intelligently designed indestructible foundation enabling you the aquarist to build a truly personalised Aquarium system without compromise.
