Pro Reef S2 Tank
The CADE Pro Reef TankÂ is a rimless open top design boasting super high clarityÂ Opti-Clear glassÂ with flat polished edges constructed using the highest qualityÂ German Whacker silicone.Â The CADE logo is laser etched within the front glass panel and serves as your guarantee of authenticity.
Silicone is robotically applied producing perfect gaps and a razor sharp minimalist finish.Â All Pro Reef S2 tanks measure 600mm high and 700mm wideÂ with space split between 600mm of inhabitable tank widthand the remaining 100mm allocated to the 'Backdrop Water Management System'.Â
The Pro Reef S2 utilizes space at the rear of the tank for aÂ â€˜multi-purpose water management system.â€™Â This feature splits the rear and front of theÂ tank viaÂ a glass panel positioned 10cm off the rear of the tank. This panel consists of 2x 5mm laminated glass panels with the black background colour embedded between the 2 sheets of glass ensuring there is no possibility of discoloration and minimising the risk of scratches.
The CADE PR-S2 'Weir'Â found on the left side of the 'multifunction water management system'Â isÂ unique in that itÂ offers both surface and low level water intakesÂ enabling superior uptake of heavier suspended solids that fail to reach regular surface intakes on regular weirs. Having an extra weir intake also serves as anÂ emergency back upÂ should one intake become blocked by a carpet anemone for exampleÂ making it an important safety feature of the system.Â
Inside the weir water is delivered to the sump via 2 pipes,Â a main down flow pipe and anÂ additional emergency overflowÂ pipe which assists flow to the sump filterÂ should the main pipe become blocked. The water intake system has been carefully designed to ensure it operateÂ silentlyÂ without further modification. The CADE Pro Reef S2 also has the ability toÂ choose between 2 water levels, a high and low level. To set the water height simply adjust the gate valve in the sump to allow flow through only the low level main down flow pipe (standard water level), or through both the low and high level down flow pipe to set it to the higher level. Alternatively the fine adjustmentÂ Gate ValveÂ will also allow the user to adjust a water height at any height in between. This is a great option to have and is particularly handy for those that may want to add a wave maker to their system and require a lower water level in their Aquarium.
The Pro Reef S2 weirÂ is neatly concealedÂ off with a flip top cover that has provisions for power cable management which keeps it all very neat and provides easy access for maintenance and cleaning. Tip: the weir on the PR-S2 is a great place to conceal the Aquarium heater.
The remainder of the 'multifunction water management system' is allocated to theÂ extraÂ large ATO reservoirÂ an important feature thatÂ prevents the need for frequent refilling of evaporated Aquarium water. The ATO reservoir extends from the leftÂ side of the tank next to the weir across to the right edge of the tank. Plumbing from the ATO reservoir is plumbed directly down to the sump filter to a float valve mounted in the return pump chamber of the sump. A plasticÂ flip cover in the right side corner provides access to the ATO for easy refilling and a water volume indicator on the side of the tank lets you know when your water level is low.Â The return flow plumbing is neatly hiddenÂ within the ATO ReservoirÂ section of the tank.Â
Finally a great new addition to theÂ CADE PR-S2 isÂ aÂ pre painted white base glassÂ making it perfect for aquarists that prefer a bare bottom reef or a thin layer of sand that is often pushed around exposing the base glass.
Pro Reef Cabinet
CADE Pro Reef S2 cabinetsÂ areÂ 900mm tall and require no assembly whatsoever.Â We deliver them to you completely assembled (sump installed) within a solid plywood box. Simply open the box, position the cabinet, rest the tank on top and screw your plumbing together. It's that simple!Â
CADE Cabinets are constructed using materials that are 100% waterproof. We are all aware that wood, metal and salt water do not equate to a durable hard wearing cabinet and because water spills are inevitable in our hobby we've constructed our cabinets using completely waterproof materials aluminum, glass and industrial plastic. These materials will never swell, rust or deteriorate. Even the magnetic door closes are hidden inside the framework to prevent them corroding. The cabinet colour is anodized to the aluminum frame which provides a perfect hardwearing finish and is also unaffected by corrosive salt water. Rest assured that the CADE PR-S2 cabinet is designed to last you a lifetime.
The Pro Reef S2 cabinet has bothÂ front and side doors with hinges and magnetic latches cleverly hidden within the frame work.Â The right side cabinet door accesses theÂ Controller ManagementÂ area withÂ power on/off switchesÂ displayed for easy access. This area is specifically designed for mounting electrical controllers keeping them neat and safely away from salt water.
The PR Series 2 models (PR2-900 and up) now include aÂ Chiller / Accessories spaceÂ on the right side of the cabinet on models PR2-900 and up. The 700mm depth provides enough space for both a chiller and other items such as dosing vessels etc. Above this anÂ accessoriesÂ shelfÂ is also provided for items such as a dosing pump and this area also provides space to neatly manage power cables that connect to the internal plugs on the Power Distribution Unit. There areÂ 8x plugs included on the PR2-600 and 16x plugs on PR2-900 through to PR2-1800.
The CADE Pro Reef S2 cabinetsÂ left side door provides direct access to the sump for unrestricted accessability to the sump filter.Â This feature makes servicing the sump incredibly easy and is a huge asset to the S2 models and a unique feature to the CADE PR-S2 Aquarium.Â
To protect the tank the cabinet also has a foam padding pre-installed to protect the tank and we've also added industrial gradeÂ adjustable caster feetÂ for simplity whenÂ levelling out your Aquarium on uneven floors.
Filtration & Plumbing
CADE Pro Reef S2 Sump filtrationÂ is a uniquely designed system that maximises space and providesÂ endless versatilityÂ no matter what your filtration preferences are. Every model is equipped withÂ pre-filtration sock/s a large Protein Skimmer / Reactor chamber, a Bio / Chemical Media Chamber and a Return Pump Chamber which also houses the ATO refill float valve that connects to the water storage reservoir in the rear of the tank.Â A very smart inclusion to the PR-S2 sumps are individually removable 10x10x20h (cm)Â media basketsÂ which can be used for any form of Biological or Chemical filter media. Filter baskets offset the need for additional media reactors such as a Carbon Reactor which ultimately saves space and unnecessary additional expenses. AÂ Macro Algae Refugium ChamberÂ is included on models PR2-1200, PR2-1500 and PR2-1800. This feature is optional and the acrylic panel is removable if the space is required for alternative purposes.Â
CADE Pro Reef PlumbingÂ is aÂ pre-fabricated screw fitÂ design that installs in minutes and requires no silicone. The plumbing starts in the weir with 2x down flow pipes (main drain & emergency). The main is fitted with a newly designed fine tuning gate valve for silencing the weir. The gate valve also enables adjustment of the Aquariums displays water height. Return flow to the Aquarium is via a 1" PVC pipe that is neatly concealed within the ATO reservoir chamber and feeds back into the tank via a directional adjustment outlet. The entire system is extremely neat and runs absolutely silently.
The CADE PR-S2 contain additionalÂ reactor and chiller water feed taps. Additional reactor feeds allow the aquarist to use the main pumps outflow pressure to feed reactors or a chillerÂ in the system. The reactor feedÂ outlet directions are completelyÂ adjustable via the screw fit connections.
