If you have an Eclipse system 12 aquarium system, you would know the meaning of total integration. Not only does this system include a nicely designed aquarium that can become the new showpiece of your office, home, or den, it also boasts of superior lighting and filtration. Indeed, the System 12 was designed to provide an "all in one" solution for aquarium hobbyists. Also encased in a curved shatter-free acrylic aquarium unit are a three stage filter and lighting system.
The three stage filter handles the three most common filter types out there - mechanical, biological, and chemical. While it is easy to see the toxic threats posed by large particles, invisible or dissolved compounds pose a bigger threat to your aquarium's plant and animal life than visible threats precisely because these compounds are invisible and hard to detect without special equipment. This system's chemical and biological filtration systems handle the dissolved threats quite well by neutralizing them or breaking them down to more harmless compounds.
The Eclipse 12 also comes with a great lighting system. Lighting is a commonly neglected component of an aquarium system. However, it impacts your enjoyment of your system the most. If your eclipse 12 light is having problems, replace it with the Marineland (Aquaria) Hood with Lamp Base Assembly - Eclipse 12 from Pet Store . Using this assembly, you can bring your aquarium back to full vivid life.
