Setup and Care Guidelines

  • Be sure that the entire bottom is fully and evenly supported by your aquarium stand or cabinet.
  • Do not replace fluorescent lights with incandescent lights, the heat may melt the ABS plastic hood; you may mount multiple fluorescent fixtures in each light hood.

Some of our products use incandescent lighting which are included with the product. Incandescent light bulbs should never exceed a maximum of 15 watts.

All CASCO hoods were designed to accept additonal Expand-A-Light Fluorescent Fixture.

High output lighting (such as metal halide) should be mounted or hung well above your Aquarium to disperse the additional heat.

  • Use caution when using, installing, or adjusting any electrical device in your aquarium to prevent harm to yourself or life in your aquarium.

Do not use alcohol of any kind to clean the aquarium.

  • Do not use scouring powders on the aquarium or cleaners that have ammonia or solvents.
  • Do not lift or carry the aquarium when it has water or gravel in it.
