Life Support Systems
The design of the aquarium’s life support system plays an important role in improving the physical health and well-being of the species in any aquarium. Life support systems for aquariums (LSS) are not just another water treatment plant, in design and general philosophy, the aquarium LSS is an inherent part of the living ecosystem and fundamentally different from a conventional pool filtration plant.
Large public aquariums require more than the clarity of water. The chemistry of the water, the biology of the system, the material of the components, the speed of rotation and even the currents of the tanks are essential for the health of the system. Each and every one of the requirements must be considered as part of the design of the aquarium life support system. Many standard water treatment components are not suitable for the biological nature of aquarium life support systems, or the salt-laden environment. For this reason, Living Color has designed, developed and manufactured our range of aquarium life support systems and components for many years.
