The Sapphire series is identical to the Emerald series except that it comes in a limited edition Sapphire blue color. Several features of this series are not found anywhere else. Some of the features of the SAPPHIRE20C are:
  • Interchangeable plates (Patent Pending)
  • Laser etched lid to prevent splashing and reduce noise
  • Adjustable water level
  • Laser engraved water level indicator
  • Three position probe holder
  • 0.25″ hose holder for dosing and ATO inputs
  • Protein skimmer section
  • Refugium section
  • Sapphire blue coloring to block light and prevent unwanted algae growth in other sections

The SAPPHIRE20C has 4 main sections. Water enters the sump into a dedicated section where the water will then flow over into Section 1. Section 1 is the configurable interchangeable plate area allowing for filter sock and/or foam block mechanical filtration. This area is covered with a lid to prevent water splashing and reduce noise. Water then flows out the bottom of Section 1 into Section 2.

Section 2 is typically where the protein skimmer is located. Water then flows through the ‘Trigger Symbol’ cutout into Section 3.

Section 3 is the refugium section. The water then flows over the adjustable water level baffle through a platform that contains a foam filter block and then under the last baffle into Section 3.

Section 4 is the return section where the return pump will sit, pumping water back to the display tank.
