Oceanbox Designs­™ Reef Conversion Kit is an All-In-One (AIO) Filtration Insert designed to convert a standard glass tank into a Reef-Ready tank. This is a perfect solution for beginner to advance hobbyist who's looking into setting up a Nano Reef system without the need to get involved in complicated drilling, plumbing, and sump filtration. Our AIO Insert Kit can be simply "DIY" installed and secured into your tank using "aquarium safe" silicone, add a return pump of adequate flow and you're good to go!

 

Oceanbox Designs™ AIO Reef Conversion Kit provides highly efficient internal filtration by forcing water through specifically designed modular media racks and baffles system. The multi-stage modular media racks allow you to run different filter media such as filter pad, carbon, purigen, phosguard, ect keeping your tank clean and your salty critters happy. A huge advantage of having an AIO system is the ability to run and hide essential equipment from view such as heater, auto-top-off sensor, temperature probe, and even a small skimmer or reactor if space is allowed.

  • Convert Standard To Reef-Ready AIO Tank.

Good luck getting your hand down that tiny chamber.

 

OP - Have you thought about including the silicone? You can buy the cheap small tubes of the aquarium safe stuff and include it for an extra charge. Just an idea.

Yeah, I mean, I can barely work in the back of AIOs anyways and my hands aren't huge. It would be difficult to get those out if you do have to lift them, especially with the rim of the tank. I guess you could use forceps or something?

Each rack can be lifted out, however for regular maintenance you only need to remove the 1st rack to replace media in the 2nd, and remove 2nd to replace media in the 3rd. You don't ever need to remove the 3rd rack unless you need to clean the bottom off detritus settling in over time. This is one downside of having an AIO in a rimmed tank, but as tibbsy mentioned, you can use a forceps to grab it. There is a center hole in each rack designed to use for finger lift.

 

For me I used these filter media in this order in my 12L tank setup.

 

1. Blue Filter Pad (replace 10-14 days)

2. Carbon (replace 10-14 days)

3. Phosguard (replace every 2-3 weeks)

The silicone is easy enough to get so I don't have to keep them in stock because sometime they get dried up if not used in a short period of time.

That said, I would still be able to build a custom AIO kit with slightly larger media racks so it will be easier to access, but it will not allow the use of the Tunze 9001 obviously because the middle chamber will be narrower. You still have skimmer options with the Aquatic-life 115 or MAME.

Tunze 9001 skimmer and Aquaticlife Mini 115 skimmer fitment. I'm surprised the Tunze fits with the cover on.

I just got my aio conversion kit today for a 20 gal long. It looks great and feels very sturdy. The top 2 racks are not too difficult to get in and out with my hand but the third is tricky. I happened to have a 12 inch pair of forceps and that makes it very easy for all 3 racks....

I work in a research lab and we have tons of them laying around. I'm sure a quick Google search will point you in the right direction though.

Thanks Marc! I'm sure it's just a matter of time but that's what I don't have...lol. At some points, I didn't think I could do continue doing this but I pushed through with all the support here on NR. Your tank is going to be perfect once everything is done, it's part of the planning game, but you play it so well it does't want to be over...haha :)
