Sytems Includes all of the following:
Acrylic Filter Sump 30 L X 12 W X 16 H
20lbs Miracle Mud
(1) 18 Watt Power Compact Lighting
You will need either a predrilled tank or overflow box to drain water to the sump. Then a return pump to send the water back. A Mag9/Mag12 or SEN900 works well for submersible pump. Quiet One or GENX Pump for external.
A UV sterilizer is recommended after your return pump to keep water crystal clear, but is not required.
The EcoSystem Method.
A unique filtration method based on sound ecology.
The Ecosystem Filtration Method is based on the principles of ecology and is a natural filtration system that simulates the environment found in coral reefs. It does not require a Protein Skimmer or activated carbon to purify the water. It keeps the water well oxygenated through the photosynthesis of Caulerpa and entirely eliminates the need for air pumps. Caulerpa can also be harvested and used as fresh, natural food for fish. In addition, Caulerpa prevents the growth of undesired hair algae by competing for essential nutrients.
The EcoSystem Filtration Method uses the end products of fish metabolism and fixes them into plant tissue, therefore preventing the accumulation of harmful ammonia, nitrites and nitrates, and stabilizes the pH. By maintaining a clean environment, the EcoSystem Filtration Method keeps fish healthy and their colors vibrant. Furthermore, we have discovered through our research, that our filtration system helps prevent and even cures lateral line disease.
The Ecosystem Filtration System requires minimal maintenance, and is a cost-effective way for you to keep a flourishing tank of fish and inverts. We invite you to learn more about the Ecosystem Filtration Method.

You Can Do It
Place appropriate amount of Miracle Mud into Chamber # 2 of the EcoSystem Aquarium filter. (See chart Below)
Pour water into the filter and let Miracle Mud settle to the bottom. (Approximately 2-3 hours).
After Miracle Mud has settled, remove any floating particles.
Turn on pump at a recommended flow rate of 1000 - 2000 GPH ( Gallons per Hour).
Allow water to completely cycle through filter (6-8 weeks for new aquariums or until ammonia levels are undetectable). Add caulerpa algae during second week of cycling.
After cycling period, quarantined fishes and corals may be introduced into the aquarium.
To continue successful maintenance of your marine aquarium system, it is recommended that you add or exchange an appropriate amount of Miracle Mud@ (50%) every two years. To ensure that this replacement process will not disturb your aquarium inhabitants, the usage of an add-on filter is highly recommended. *For existing system - Addition of Ecosystem Filter provides benefits. Smooth transition is recommended to prevent shock to fish and corals.
