A New NUVO Line overflowing with space!

Crafted based on the blueprint of the Award-Winning Fusion Aquariums

The NUVO EXT from Innovative Marine signifies a groundbreaking innovation. 

This aquarium introduces an all-glass overflow, a pioneering "Bean Animal" safety drain system, and provides 100% space for unobtrusive aquascaping.

A Bean Animal Drain is a hybrid of the Durso and Herbie methods. It consists of a primary drain which utilizes the Herbie method, a secondary drain which is a Durso Standpipe, and a tertiary drain which is the emergency overflow.

Meticulously crafted with Innovative Marine's award-winning expertise, it features the highest-grade components, including ultra-thick, high-clarity, low-iron glass, a laser-cut acrylic weir, and the iconic black silicone – just a glimpse of the unparalleled features that define its distinguished lineage.

External Overflow (EXT)

Out of the Box The NUVO EXT seamlessly combines elegance with functionality by adopting the proven Herbie-style drain system. The dual drains operate harmoniously, minimizing noise, preventing accidental spills, and ensuring redundancy for added safety.
