Growth compartment of the SURF2
model: UAS-SURF2-box
note: 1150

This is the exact same floating growth compartment box as the complete SURF2, SURF2x and SURF2xx. Only the lights are different. If you want to use your own light, such as a CFL bulb, or your own LEDs, then you can get just this floating growth compartment and save yourself all the work of building it. If you later want to use our LED light, you can get it here:


The floating growth compartment has the Green-Grabber textures, ribbons, floating foam, and air tubing and connectors. The tubing is 3 ft (90 cm) of dual vinyl airline, but requires a 2-outlet air pump that can pump at least 5.0 total liters per minute (0.2 cfm), which small low-cost pumps cannot do. Pumps that say they can handle 10 or more airstones, or pumps with 2 tubing attachments instead of one, are best..You can have as much air as you like, however; 5.0 lpm pumps are no problem. One powerful pump which works exceptionally well for a low cost is the Fusion 700 from JW Pet, which we sell separately HERE. It is quiet and has two outputs which are adjustable by turning the control knob; the two outputs perfectly match the two air inlets on the SURF2  Another even more powerful and completely silent pump, although more expensive and without a control, is the Whisper 300 from Tetra. The Whisper 150 also works but you will need two of them. Make sure to put any pump above the aquarium so that it will not drain any water if it shuts off.
