Living Stream System®

The Living Stream System® provides a controlled environment for aquatic life.

The "Living Stream" is a revolutionary design of recirculating water in a closed system. All the water in the tank makes a complete cycle every 1-1/2 minutes, thus providing an equal amount of dissolved oxygen and the desired temperature throughout the entire tank.

The "Living Stream" has a falsebottom made of one piece fiberglass, which can easily be removed for cleaning as it is lightweight and has no screws or bolts to unfasten. The tank can be easily washed and the falsebottom replaced.

The filtering system consists of two double screens. The primary filter picks up the residue, and one carbon filter, 4" thick, holds 25 pounds of activated carbon charcoal. Both filters can be easily removed for cleaning. In addition, there are vinyl divider screens and embossed channels making it possible to adjust the tank compartments.
