Eheim Aquastyle 4 or 16 aquariums are 11 inches (28 centimeters) high by 9.5 inches (24 centimeters) wide and 9.5 inches (24 centimeters) deep. These dimensions donât include the light, which extends above the glasswork of the nano aquarium. Visibility is available through all four sides of the Aquastyle aquarium. A cable organizer keeps the electrical cord out of sight. Rubber feet on the underside of this small aquarium set it above your surfaces and eliminate the need for placing a mat under it. A simple cover plate can be clipped open, and when closed, allows for air filtration via a small gap.You can place your Eheim Aquastyle planted aquarium on existing furniture or obtain an eye-catching cabinet built to match this nano tank. The optional display cabinet is 40 inches (102 centimeters) tall.The attractive glass cube is lit with an energy efficient Liquid-Emitting Diode (LED) light that contains 81 intersected diodes to utilize only seven watts of power. This light produces 1200 lumens at 6,000K, a perfect amount of light for aquatic plants in this four-gallon (16-liter) aquarium. Vivid colors show up when this bright LED lamp is on, which is estimated to have a 20,000-hour lifespan that equals about five years of average usage. The cord for the lamp is independent of the filter, so you can turn the lamp on and off, separately from the filterâs operation. The Eheim Aquastyle comes with an internal corner filter, which efficiently uses only four watts of electrical power. It has a filter cartridge, a bio-filter, an active carbon filter and a phosphate remover. From the dosing chamber, filtered water goes through a water slide return, which creates an oxygenated ripple across the surface of your aquarium water. This fantastic filtering system matches the small size of your planted aquarium and sustains clear and stable water. The pump output is 53 gallons (200 liters) per hour.The Aquastyle model numbers are currently designated by their volumes in liters (Aquastyle 16, Aquastyle 24, and Aquastyle 35), although Eheim USA is expected to to rename the models for the US market to represent volumes by gallon (Aquastyle 4, Aquastyle 6, and Aquastyle 9). There are also unconfirmed reports reef versions of Aquastyle aquariums are set to debut in the future, although no additional details are available at this time. We can only hope a reef version will include more powerful LEDs, stronger flow, and perhaps a small protein skimmer.
