Tenecor offers two AIO designs. The Simplicity™ Wet/Dry and the HushFlow™ PowerSump. Both are explained below.

Tenecor® Simplicity™. Proven and reliable for over 40 years.

Addressing the disadvantages of available filtration at the time, Tenecor® in the 1970's invented the wet/dry AIO. We named them Simplicity™ to reflect their ease of setup and maintenance. Wet/dry filtration is highly effective because water is trickled over bio media on which reside beneficial bacteria. These bacteria are found everywhere in the aquarium and thrive in an environment where there is abundant oxygen. Trickling the water over the media provides this oxygen. Every major public aquarium uses this proven filtration method.

Hundreds of thousands of Simplicity™ aquariums have proven safe and reliable. They are an an excellent choice for both freshwater and saltwater setups.

 
Tenecor® Simplicity. Full wet/dry performance. Shown here is a dual left/right configuration used in larger tanks. This version uses reticulated pre-filter sponges for even greater biological activity.

 

HushFlow™ PowerSumps. Designed especially for the saltwater reefer.

The biggest complaint we hear from hobbyists is how small the sumps are in glass tanks. Many hobbyists prefer the flexibility of a large customizable sump and Tenecor® PowerSumps deliver. HushFlow™ PowerSumps are engineered with oversize chambers, versatile media cups and plenty of room for customization.

Even the smallest HushFlow™ PowerSump features oversize media filter baskets & extra larger chambers. Shown here is a ReefPoint® 36 inch with 7 inch basket and 8 inch baffles.

*Corner Treatment Explained

Bent Corners. The front and side viewing panels are formed from a single piece of acrylic with the front corners heated and bent. Bent corners are the most visually attractive especially in unique shaped aquariums such as corner pentagons.

Square Corners. Corners that are joined at 90 degree angles. Square corners are typically found in larger sizes.

Rounded Corners. A process where square cornered tanks are rounded over to a smooth radius. Not to be confused with Bent Corners.
