UNIQUE, ORIGINAL DeCOR
The originality of column aquariums lies in their unusual proportions: they may not be very wide or deep, but they are unusually high. With our expertise in different forms of aquarium, Aquaniman has reinvented the concept, offering a fresh vision of aquatic decor. Coupled with the quality of the materials used (glass up to 15 mm thick, tinted Planilaque surrounds, specific LED lighting and so on), the minimalist design of our column aquariums makes them even more elegant and adds a timeless touch.

RECREATING A WHOLE AQUATIC WORLD
Our column aquariums are fitted for warm fresh water, to accommodate brightly-coloured tropical fish. Even though they don’t take up much floor space, the height of a column aquarium means that they are plenty large enough to accommodate a broad variety of fish: you’ll never tire of watching them move around between the bottom and top of the aquarium, in water that stays clear – thanks to the Aquaniman filter system.
What’s more, the baby fish of certain species are automatically collected. As soon as they’re born, they are carried by a bottom current through a special mesh to a compartment located adjacent to the filters, until they’re fully grown.
Contrary to popular opinion, column aquariums are ideal for a large number of fish varieties: they all feel very much at home there. However, they are not suitable for certain species due to their size; this is the case in particular for certain African cichlids.
The technical equipment, hidden away to the rear of the column, is easy to access via the top. Like all Aquaniman aquariums, our columns are very low-maintenance. Thanks to this unique system, the water needs changing only one third at a time, on average twice a year. What’s more, there’s no longer any need to clean or vacuum the gravel, thanks to bottom currents that carry off all the waste into the filter compartment.
TECHNOLOGY ENHANCING STYLE AND FUNCTIONALITY
We’ve paid special attention to lighting – an important aspect when it comes to showing off your aquarium to its best advantage and facilitating care of the glass. As a result, our aquariums feature LED lighting, diffusing a light spectrum that’s perfect for aquatic plants whilst minimising the growth of green algae on the glass. Another advantage of this system is its low energy use – and the lifecycle of the LEDs can be as long as 30,000 hours. That’s over 10 years of lighting for up to 8 hours a day!
In addition, our column aquariums are fitted with a Giffard system; in addition to the superb visual effect created by the stream of air bubbles this produces, this guarantees optimal oxygenation of the water. It also has the advantage of being extremely quiet compared to a traditional bubble system.
A COLUMN AQUARIUM THAT MATCHES YOUR INTERIOR
As each interior is unique, you can customise your column aquarium so it blends in with your lounge. Base dimensions, surround and colour: there are infinite possibilities for each!
As standard, our column aquariums come with a Planilaque surround (choice of 4 colours) or a mirror finish (choice of 3 shades), while the base comes in the colour of your choice (500 shades available) with a satin lacquer finish, or as an option, gloss lacquer.
ALL EQUIPMENT IS SUPPLIED
Our column aquariums come with all the technical equipment needed for them to operate: pump, full filter system, immersion heater and LED lighting with transformer. All the connections are beneath the base, with just one plug to connect the whole unit.
WHILE YOU’RE AWAY
You can go on holiday without any worries, thanks to our optional ‘Vacances’ pack. This includes a glass panel to keep evaporation to a minimum, a feed dispenser (making your aquarium autonomous for up to 4 weeks by providing just the right amount of food for your fish each day) and a lighting timer.
The assembly and technical parts come with a two-year warranty. We provide detailed instructions for installing your aquarium. Aquaniman also provides free telephone assistance for any after-sales enquiries and maintenance advice.
