What's a NUVO INT Reef Ready?

"INT" stands for Internal and "Reef Ready" means it needs a sump. The name was coined to describe the style of overflow and drain system used on this series of NUVO aquariums. 


The INT's are built with an internal infinity coast-to-coast overflow. Water silently cascades through the weirs, enters a "Bean Animal" drain and flows into a sump down below.

What's a "Bean Animal" Drain?

A "Bean Animal" is a 3 drain pipe overflow system consisting of: one primary siphon, one primary emergency and a secondary emergency.


This method is used in aquariums to create an ultra-quiet and ultra-safe overflow.
