CADE Altumate Aquariums are our range of customisable freshwater or marine aquariums. Every model in the CADE Altumate Series is a beautifully designed foundation to enable the aquarist to build a truly personalised system. The CADE Altumate Series is a uniquely innovative Aquarium design that offers a highly versatile product in a size range that was until now previously considered custom. From styling to function every element takes into consideration current and future trends in both Aquaria and home design to produce an industry leading aquarium system.

The Altumate Series is our range of extra tall sump filtered Reef/River Aquariums ideal for either a freshwater or marine applications. Uniquely tall in stance and extra wide in depth, all of the Aquarium tanks in this series measure an impressive 800mm high with depths that increase incrementally with tank sizes in the range. Bracing is constructed using a single sheet of water jet cut opti-clear glass. This single sheet of glass is then siliconed perfectly in place to CADE's industry leading standard to complete the minimalist look synonymous with CADE Aquariums

The dimensions in the Altumate series vary between models in both length and width with the only consistent dimension between the 3 models being height. The LTW/C1200 measures 1200x660x800h, the LTW/C1500 measures 1500x660x800h and the LTW/C1800 measures 1800x750x800h. With such large water capacities quality filtration is paramount. An internal corner weir delivers water silently to a state of the art sump filter boasting features such as easy flush chamber drainage, an elevated easy access wet/dry pre filter chamber, sliding glass covers, and even plumbing that provides the option to connect the return pump externally if desired.

CADE's range of Aquarium cabinets are made from aluminium and glass making them the most hardwearing aquarium furniture on the market. Water spillage is an inevitable consequence of aquarium maintenance so it's good to know your CADE cabinet is completely resistant to water damage and it will never warp or swell like a water damaged wooden cabinet. Instead they simply wipe clean with ease ensuring it remains looking like new. Another great unique feature of CADE cabinets are adjustable caster feet, which conveniently takes care of uneven floors levelling out the tank.

The Altumate series cabinets are provided pre-built packaged in plywood box's with the sump filter secured safely inside. Assembly is as simple as unboxing, positioning and screwing the plumbing together.
