Product Info

The Altumate Series is our range of extra tall sump filtered Reef/River Aquariums. This unique series originally named after the incredible Altum Angel is the 'Altumate' mixed application Aquarium, ideal for either a freshwater or saltwater applications. Uniquely tall in stance and extra wide in depth, all of the Aquariums in this series measure an impressive 800mm high with depths that increase incrementally with tank sizes in the range. Bracing is constructed using a single sheet of water jet cut opti-clear glass. This single sheet of glass is then siliconed perfectly in place to CADE's industry leading standard to complete the minimalist look synonymous with CADE Aquariums

The dimensions in the Altumate series vary between models in both length and width with the only consistent dimension between the 3 models being height. The Altumate 1200 measures 1200x660x800h, the Altumate 1500 measures 1500x700x800h and the Altumate 1800 measures 1800x750x800h.

An internal corner weir in the Aquarium delivers water silently to a state of the art sump filter boasting unique features such as an elevated pre filter chamber complete with filter socks and a filter pad tray.  An easy flush chamber drainage system enabling settled debri to be removed without the need to remove media. The addition of 'media baskets' which allow for various biological and biochemical media to be neatly and conveniently added to the filteration system. Finally we've added  sliding glass covers over the sump to help reduce evaporation.  

CADE's range of Aquarium cabinets are made from aluminium and glass making them the most hardwearing aquarium furniture on the market. Water spillage is an inevitable consequence of aquarium maintenance so it's good to know your CADE cabinet is completely resistant to water damage and it will never warp or swell like a water damaged wooden cabinet. Instead they simply wipe clean with ease ensuring it remains looking like new for years to come. Another great feature of CADE cabinets are adjustable feet which allows the aquarist to conveniently level the tank on uneven floors. 

The Altumate series cabinets are provided pre-built and packaged in plywood box's with the sump filter secured safely inside. Assembly is as simple as unboxing, positioning and screwing the plumbing together.
