D&D have drawn upon over 120 years of combined knowledge and experience in reefkeeping and aquarium production to develop and build a high end but affordable systemised reef aquarium, the Reef-Pro.

Aquarium Features

Constructed from crystal clear, low iron high clarity glass, the aquarium features a braceless design, producing a clean and modern display with easy access for maintenance. By designing the tank to be wider than it is tall D&D create a more balanced aspect ratio which greatly enhances the viewing experience, allowing easier and more natural aquascaping and coral placement.

An internal weir box can become an unattractive focal point in any aquarium, dictating aquascaping and interrupting flow patterns inside the tank. With this in mind the 'invisible weir box' of the PRO-Reef models has been carefully designed to minimise intrusion into the aquarium whilst exceeding the functionality found in most aquariums.

The Twin pipe overflow system allows almost silent running whilst the use of the D&D UltraFlow weir comb allows the maximum amount of waterflow without raising the water height in the aquarium.


Cabinet Features

The PRO-Reef cabinet is designed to be extra tall to perfectly balance the aspect ratio of the aquarium and is built for D&D in the UK to ensure a consistent high quality.

The top, bottom and main structural uprights of the cabinet are made of 36mm water resistant board, making it extremely strong and rigid with excellent load bearing properties, giving the impression of a piece of furniture rather than just a simple tank cabinet. To keep your cabinet in tip-top condition, wipe up any split water as soon as possible.

The 1200 and 1500 models incorporate a separate storage or chiller section with an adjustable shelf.

The extra internal height inside the cabinet provides good headroom for use of taller equipment and benefits ease of maintenance. Access is further improved by incorporating removable quick-release double folding doors.

When installing any aquarium it is of the upmost importance to provide a level base, unlevelled cabinets can add stress to the glass and can result in an uneven water level in the aquarium. The D&D aquarium cabinet design includes heavy duty adjustable feet allowing for full levelling of the cabinet and aquarium.

There are currently 5 standard cabinet colours available: Anthracite, Gloss White, Gloss Black, Platinum Oak and Driftwood Concrete.

Sump Features

The ultra quiet twin pipe weir system is further refined by the first section of the sump, resulting in a silent water return with no splashing or gurgling.

The water then overflows into a twin filter socks section which incorporates a diffused silencer plate to silence any water noise. From there the filtered water flows Into two large equipment compartments. These chambers can both hold equipment such as skimmers, media reactors, calcium reactors etc or you can use one chamber as a refugium with caulerpa/cheato.

Here again there is flexibility to alternate these sections for those who prefer to skim before or skim after the refugium. The final section is a generous sized return pump compartment which sits beside the integrated water top off reservoir located to the side of the sump.
