Reviewing The TMC AquaHabitat 30 Nano Marine Aquarium

The AquaHabitat 30 is a Nano Aquarium which is ideal for use for mini Marine Reef set ups, and the equipment included means you can do this almost immediately.

TMC Aqua Habitat 30 Marine Tank

The tank itself is made from high quality acrylic which is 5mm thick, so it is thick enough to be very strong but does not distort your view, with beautifully curved front edges for extra style. The total volume is 30 litres which is approximately 6.6 imperial gallons.

The Size

The full width of the tank is 35cm with a total front to back measurement of 32.5cm but the measurement of the tank area is 25cm. This is due to the back chamber which contains your equipment including a Skimmer which removes toxins from the water and also helps to aerate the water too.

You also get with the aquarium a H2Air 60 Air Pump which powers the skimmer and a micro heater which keeps your water at the correct temperature for marine life. The tank itself is 32cm in height, and including the light unit included this is 48.5cm tall.

High Quality Lighting

The light included is an AquaRay 500HD Tile with 4 x lensed 10,000k white Cree XP-E and 1 x un-lensed blue Cree XP-E PowerLEDs. The White LEDs can be switched off to give a blue moonlight mode and this is attached to your tank with a MountaRay tank bracket, but you could also use the AquaRay tile bracket which is a small acrylic stand which brings the unit even closer to the water surface for enhanced light.

Where Can You Use It and What For?

This aquarium is ideal for use in a small space, like an office, kitchen or your bedroom, and is great for nano reefs and small shrimp & fish, and we’d advise using 3.3-3.5kg of live rock.

You can of course use this aquarium for tropical or coldwater, but it would be a shame to spend the money on it for this use as you are paying for the equipment too, but it's definitely a great set up to buy for someone who is just getting into marine or someone who's experience but wants an extra tank.
