MEGA Matrix Options
Standard vs Crystal Glass – regular glass panels have a slight green tint due to the iron content in the glass. Crystal glass is a low-iron glass that offers better clarity and less color distortion. The color of your fish, plants and corals will be more vibrant when viewed through low-iron glass.
Diamond Polished Edges – most aquariums feature just a straight cut and flat-sanded edges: which are often jagged and the corners are sharp. The MEGA Matrix Aquariums offer upgraded diamond polished edges that feature beveled corners and a smooth upscale finish.
Black vs Clear Silicone – Black silicone offers a more-modern look while clear silicone makes the joint look more seamless (Black silicone comes standard. Clear available upon request).
Internal vs External Overflow Boxes – Internal overflow boxes takes up more space inside the aquarium but are easier to install and plumb. The bottom of the aquarium is drilled to accommodate drain and return lines. External overflow boxes use a very slim box inside the aquarium that drains to a larger drain box located outside of the aquarium. Due to its design, external overflow boxes take up a lot less room inside the aquarium; leaving more space for aquascaping and for fish to swim in.
Clear vs Black Backgrounds – Black backgrounds allow you to hide all the wiring and create more contrast between the back wall and the inhabitants in your aquarium.
For Large Aquariums (450 Gallon+):
Stainless Steel Trim – larger or taller aquariums may require extra structural support. Stainless steel trim is strong yet thin. Stainless Steel Trim is used when plastic trim is not sufficient for support.
PVC Bottom – PVC bottoms are a worthwhile upgrade and we consider them to be required for many larger aquariums. PVC bottoms will not crack like glass so they do a much better job being used as a support base over a large area. PVC is also much easier to drill for holes. For bare-bottom aquariums, you do not need to worry about liverock falling over and cracking the bottom of your aquarium. Additionally, PVC bottoms have channels routed around the parameter so the vertical glass panels sit in the channels rather than just on top. This helps to ‘lock’ in the glass and reduces stress on those joints. PVC bottom tanks are also much easier to transport and the bottom layers helps to absorb pressure points once placed on an aquarium stand.
