Aperture Now Exclusive US Distributor of Aquaforest

NEWS
May 20, 2022

Aperture Pet & Life, the new, integrated company for some of the largest brands in the aquatics industry, including Bulk Reef Supply, Neptune Systems, EcoTech Marine and AquaIllumination, is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with Aquaforest® to provide aquarists and retailers across the US with all that Aquaforest has to offer. 

Aquaforest is a globally trusted brand sold in over 70 countries, who has been committed to empowering aquarists for over 25 years, with products rooted in science, inspired by experience, and manufactured in Poland (EU) to meet the demands of aquarists who expect the highest quality standards. 

This new, exclusive distribution partnership will provide consistent availability to the US market of Aquaforest’s end-to-end line of Marine, expert Lab line and Freshwater products, including: salts, additives, media, equipment, fish/coral foods, and the new Aquaforest OceanGuardTM aquariums for beginner to expert aquarists.

  • Aquaforest Salt. Aquaforest manufactures and produces 6 types of salt in Brzesko, Poland ranging from their Sea Salt (fish only), Reef Salt (most popular), Probiotic Reef Salt (for nutrient control), Mineral Salt (for ionic stability,) and newest line of salts that will be available soon –  Hybrid Pro Salt (made with evaporated sea flakes and mined sea salt) and Reef Salt + (for those who prefer higher parameters).
  • Aquaforest OceanGuardTM aquariums. They are available in 5 sizes ranging from 73 gallons (AF275) to 259 gallons (AF 980) and 6 different colored cabinet doors and panels that are interchangeable. The cabinet  is manufactured using 100% marine yacht hardwood plywood for ultra-strong cabinet construction and comes pre-assembled with the only certificate of safety in the industry backed by the EU - B31. Pilkington Europe produces the Opti-whiteTM crystal clear glass for increased scratch-resistance and true-to color accuracy of fish and corals. The plumbing is designed to be nearly silent while providing optimal flow between the aquarium and sump, which is also hand-made in Aquaforest’s factory in Poland. Lastly, and the only part not made in Europe, is the hinges. They were specially made to be able to handle the pressures of salt and water without rusting.   
  • Aquaforest Life Bio Fil and AF Rock. These two products are truly innovative and revolutionary. Aquaforest Life Bio Fil is the only bio-media product on the market that comes with live beneficial bacteria already saturated on the surface of the media. This dramatically reduces the time needed to cycle an aquarium as well as adds to the biological diversity of a reef tank's ecology (this can be further amplified when using Aquaforest Life Source, Pro Bio S and Pro Bio F bacteria media). AF Rock is hand-made from naturally occurring materials, individually sculpted to ensure uniqueness and visual appeal, coated with an ecologically safe compound to resemble natural coralline algae from day one. At the same time, the AF Rock is extremely light weight and porous to foster the growth of beneficial bacteria while supporting a stable pH/KH without you having to worry about pests, hitch-hikers, or nuisance algae.
