Each External Aquarium Filter system utilises a multi-stage approach to filtration. Filtering aquarium tank water through three internal layered baskets filled with assorted filter media material it provides extremely thorough biological, mechanical and chemical filtration.
Each External Filter in our range operates exactly the same way as our Internal Powerhead Filters but are designed to be positioned outside of your tank. Each unit draws water into the filter through an inlet tube and returns crystal clear water via an outlet tube (both supplied)
The outlet tube is fitted with a spray-bar to help increase oxygen aeration levels within your tank. These filter's are absolutely ideal for freeing-up space within your tank and provide a huge internal capacity for filter media, making them suitable for larger volume tanks.
Now supplied with a built-in 9w UV Bulb sterilizer, passing water is exposed to lethal doses of ultraviolet light - killing, sterilizing or otherwise irreparably damaging the majority of harmful micro-organisms. Fish tank water is pumped slowly past the UV light (sealed inside a quartz glass sleeve) which is designed to allow maximum UV exposure. Replacement bulbs available in store - one supplied.
Each model is supplied with Ceramic Rings, Bio Balls, Activated Carbon and fine filter foam. By filtering your tank using the provided filter media you will observe a vastly improved level of waste-free water through extremely strong biological purification. The filter's easy-access layered filter media basket's make it simple to customise your media choices to suit your aquarium and fish livestock needs.
Maintaining the filter is very simple. The drip-free shut-off tap allows you to remove the filter and transport it away from your aquarium fish tank to an area more suitable for cleaning. Each filter media basket lifts smoothly out of the unit and can be easily rinsed through and returned to continue its operation.
