Hexus Quarantine System
The Hexus is a 2.50m diameter x 1.1m 825 gallon (3740 litre) complete foldaway quarantine system.
This widely used quarantine sysytem from Aquosis, unlike any other system, simply folds away when not in use. It comes complete with pool, cover, filter, pump and all hoses and fittings
For much of the year it is likely that a quarantine system is not in use and therdore taking up valuable space. With this system being able to be folded away and kept in a small storage space. The system can be taken through narrow gateways or through your front door. This also keeps transport costs down and enables the owner to transport the system easily in a car.
The pressurised canister filter at the heart of the system comes complete with a 11 watt UV. Connected to a pump which can be sited inside the unit or dry mounted externally via a through-liner fitting where the liner has been specially reinforced for this purpose, it enables the filter to be located and operated at a convenient location close to the pool, whether above or below the water level. Integral to the filter is a vortex to collect the heavier waste which can easily flush away simply by opening a valve.
The 'INSTANT' mature filter is a combination of mixed substrate, with it's high surface area and mineral properties together with it's storage within an existing mature system. If there is no existing filter to culture the media then the use of a good filter start medium is required.
Optional heating can be supplied with the use of electrical heaters to maintain the water at the required temperature and are easily installed. The whole system can be assembled and dismantled quickly and easily.
An important point that is often overlooked is a cover for the quarantine system. Fish are often stressed when put into a new environment especially when stocking levels are low. Covering the pool will enable the fish to feel more at ease and reduce the risk of health problems. For this reason a choice of covers is available, a close weave mesh cover and a heat retention cover for heated systems. Using a liner as opposed to a rigid sided system is of benefit as there is no chance of damage being caused to the fish if they swim into the sides.
Here at Dankoi we can offer a full range of customised pools manufactured to meet your requirements, whether you are limited for space or simply wish to maximise that which is available. As well as quarantining fish, these systems can be used for accommodating fish during house moves, as an isolation unit, or when refurbishing or cleaning your pond.
We would recommend filling these units from your existing pond. This will preserve the mature water which can be returned to your pond when required.
The Elecro 2 KW aquatic heaters are ideal for heating this system, see the full range in our Pond Heating section. These come in both Stainless Steel and Titanium versions with the option of 24 hour timers on the digital range. We would strongly recommend a heater for these if they are going to be used as a quarantine system for the treatment of you Koi. Maintaining a warm stable termerature can greatly improve the recovery of sick fish.
