Mr. Saltwater Tank Covers Marine Aquarium Expo 2013

I love saltwater aquarium trade shows because you get to see a lot of frags, fish, equipment and catch up with friends all in on place. The Marine Aquarium Expo in Orange County, CA was on my list of trade shows to visit in 2013 and here’s what I saw that caught my eye.

    That hydor smart level seems about as “snail proof” as it gets. Great coverage mark!

  • Tron says:

    I wish these were like an hour long. I wanted to see more! Thanks for this though, I really enjoy your outings.

  • Matt says:

    OK that smart level is a snazzy idea and I like the sump pump backup solution as well … 😀

  • John L says:

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the coverage. I missed the expo this year.
    Was this the MAX back in April 2013? Or did they have another one after that? (and I missed again LOL 🙂 )

  • Winters says:

    where is the backup pump and filter available?

  • wish we had something like this in the UK.

  • Speedy says:

  • Brendan Humphrey says:

    Haha, I saw myself and my friend standing in line. MAX was great! It was pretty cool attending your fish and tank size assembly, and even cooler chatting with you after your speech and during the raffles. Your an awesome down-to-earth guy! Hopefully I can meet you again at some other show. Thanks again for everything.

  • Bradley says:

    Is the hydor ATO for sale?

  • Bradley says:

    Never mind I see.

  • Bryan says:

    I can’t wait until the Smart Level is available for purchase. I am tired of cleaning and replacing float switches.

  • says:

    With steel brackets securely fix and level your aquarium then carefully slide onto the brackets.
    Be warned however, that excess food can create excess nutrients in your tank, creating a
    water quality problem. You want to skim out as much of the Dissolved Organic Compounds (DOCs) before they can break down in
    your tank and add to the Green Hair Algae’s reproduction cycle.
