This 25 gallon aquarium is the largest cube aquarium offered by Hydra. It gives the user the depth and height of a large aquarium without the added length. Enjoy the beauty of a large aquarium in even the smallest living space or office. With a regular tank, a filter and heater can both be seen and distract from the beauty of the aquarium. Not in this case! The back filter hides all of that within the footprint of the tank, all you can see from the front is a black background. The 3 1/8″ filter extends the entire back of the tank and is divided into 3 sections that direct the water flow. The first chamber maintains a water level of 12.5″, which is perfect for most submersible heaters rated for a 25 gallon aquarium. The water enters the first chamber at the top, travels down to the bottom where it is again channeled up to the top of the second chamber. The second chamber is designed to house the filter media such as carbon, sponges, or floss, and it maintains a level of 9.5″. The water enters the top of this chamber and flows downward. A sponge or pad cut to 6.5″ x 3.25″ would fit snugly and allow no water bypass. The third and final chamber is designed to fit most popular models of aquarium pumps between 250-350 GPH. The level in this chamber will fluctuate due to evaporation. With the filter components all contained in the back of the tank you can truly have your aquascape contained in a 18″ x 18″ footprint!
