Our packages above are specifically designed by our full-time service experts for this 280 Gallon Glass Saltwater Aquarium Special to have the proper size and flow ratings for this size aquarium. Plenty of additional circulation, aeration, flow, skimming capacity, and surface area of biofiltration are accounted for in these packages with redundancy and safety measures already factored in. This aquarium and filter system is a passive, gravity-fed system with redundant pumps for safety which means you can rest easy and have very low maintenance, efficient, reliable setup with a LIFETIME warranty when ordered with a stand. A complete setup as shown below will provide a truly professional commercial grade setup that works great for freshwater, saltwater, reef, and marine aquariums.
For each upgraded level package you purchase, you not only save more on the items in that package, but you save even more on all the items in the previous package… Because it is much more efficient for us to ship a lot of stuff together and to produce based on our common configurations, when you order a more and more complete standardized package, we pass the savings on to you!
This 280-gallon aquarium is made from 1/2″ glass with our patented frame on the top and bottom of the tank. The frame is made from high-strength black anodized aluminum.
We offer an industry-leading lifetime warranty on the aquarium at no extra cost if it is placed on our stand and properly cared for. You have the option of adding a stand to the aquarium when you configure it.
We can offer this lifetime warranty because of the superior engineering and rigorous quality control that goes into every aquarium we manufacture. We remove integrity compromising micro-fractures by beveling and polishing every edge of every piece of glass. We use a black high-strength aquarium-grade silicone that is five times stronger than common clear aquarium silicone.
If you are looking for a large aquarium, this is a great option for a big 280-gallon tank that will last you the rest of your life.
The Basic Package
The Basic package includes everything you need to connect a sump filtration system to your aquarium. It includes one of our Stealthbox® overflow boxes with three H2Overflow® screens and two Siphon Stopper® return nozzles. Holes for the overflows and returns are drilled in the back of the tank. This allows you to use a low-maintenance gravity-fed sump system that is much less likely to fail or flood.
The Deluxe Package
The Deluxe package adds a 3600GPH Reef 83 Seamless Sump filter system which is configured for 3600GPH. The sump system will hold around 65.7 gallons of water bringing your system volume to 289 gallons. The Seamless sump tubs are made out of durable high density polyethylene. The tubs have no seams that can leak or fail.
This Seamless sump system includes two Sicce 5.0 return pumps for redundant returns in case one fails. The system also includes a UV sterilizer, bio media, Purigen, filter socks, and all the return and overflow hoses.
The Majestic® Stand
You have the option of including a custom-built Majestic® aquarium stand with your tank. The stand can either be a high-strength powder-coated steel tube stand or a hardwood cabinet with a matching canopy. The hardwood stand and canopy are available in a number of styles, woods, and colors.
The hardwood stand is made using furniture quality wood. It is only made from high-quality materials. No cardboard, fiberboard, particleboard, or softwood are used in our stands. Our stands are designed to last a lifetime.
The steel stand is made from high-strength square tube steel. The steel frame is welded into a single solid piece. There are no open ends for water to collect in. Lastly, the whole frame is finished with a durable oven-cured powder coating. The steel stand has a 3/4″ plywood top that is painted to match the black powder coating.
