We now carry a great little acrylic pico aquarium called the IQ3 from DYMAX!

Posted ImagePosted Image


The description is as follows:
The Dymax IQ3 Acrylic Aquarium is a stunning, high-quality mini acrylic aquarium complete with lighting and integrated filtration. Constructed from ultra-clear and durable 1/4" acrylic, the IQ3 has no sharp edges, and is stronger and safer than glass. The filtration is hidden behind the built-in black acrylic false wall, and uses an overflow to keep the surface of the aquarium clear of oily buildup. The Bio-Sponge filter uses a diffusion plate to ensure even flow of water through the filter media; ensuring optimal performance. The compact return pump has great flow, and uses a small duck-bill nozzle to create a strong, yet gentle flow throughout the aquarium. The Dymax IQ3 comes complete with the Robot LED system - a slim, bright, and energy efficient dimmable fixture.

The build quality is great and we are pleased to see they constructed the aquarium from 1/4" acrylic making the IQ3 very sturdy. The back chamber can easily fit a small heater, as well as be converted to a refugium for those reefers out there who care to do so (we have tested the unit here). The LED light it comes with is capable of keeping plants, algaes, and some soft corals alive and growing. More of the ROBOT dimmable LED's can be added (up to 3 total) to the unit to increase light output for more light demanding organisms.

This looks seriously cool and like it has great potential, but I too am wondering about dimensions and how many gallons it is.
If you could add that info to the product description on your site it would be very helpful.
It would also be great if you could say how many blue and white LEDs are in the LED fixture and if they are 1w LEDs, etc.
Thanks very much for posting this, I foresee a lot of interest in it here on NR.

I believe it holds 1.6 gallons total volume.
The dimensions are 7" x 8" x 7"

As for the lighting, Dymax doesn't give the exact specs. The fixture has all cool white LEDs which I would compare to about 12K~14K by the looks of them. They are not high wattage, the whole fixture claims to run off less than 4 watts. However low the wattage is, it still seems to be capable of sustaining plants and low light corals. I would probably use 2 or 3 ROBOT LED fixtures if keeping any corals. Low light plants like anubias, crypts, java moss, java fern etc. will be fine under the single fixture the tank comes with.

I figured I may as well take a couple photos of the tank with 3 lights on it to show how they fit. I didn't plug them in since there is only a single outlet near the display model.

That's a pretty sick little tank. Looks like the whole tank including the false wall is 1/4" acrylic. I wonder what one of these would look like with one of Evil's PAR38 LED units over top of it ;)

We set one up here at the office to see what we could do with it. Of course we decided to do it planted, which most of you probably aren't interested in ;) but nonetheless I will post some photos of the outcome!

I had stumbled upon this tank 2 weeks ago after looking to see if anyone has made any cool pico tanks lately. its definitely a cool design . I too thought to myself what that the par 38 light would look like over one of these. I think it would be a good candidate for it and will just have to find out after i get my hands on one of these little bad boys :)

I've been thinking of upgrading my Dymax IQ3s lighting.

thinking of: Par30, Par38 or Evil66's 12.1 LED from nanocustoms.com

what does anyone think? I really like the look of Evil66's LED unit.

I think they would do very well. I would talk to Evil about which of the two would be more appropriate as we do not have experience with that specific product.

Let us know how it works out and post some pics!
