Energy-efficient, top-quality Eheim PRO 3 (formerly Ultra G) Canister Aquarium Filters handle even the largest aquariums with ease.


Eheim Pro 3 Canister Aquarium Filters

These impressive professional grade filters are loaded with innovative features for advanced hobbyists, but are easy to use for beginners.

    Easy to Use:
  • Automatic self-priming
  • Safety hose adapters with locking mechanism allow quick fill up
  • Easy access pre-filter.
  • Multiple media baskets ensure superior aquarium filtration
  • Multi-use filtration baskets with handles for easy maintenance.
  • Hassle-free setup and maintenance
All units come with one coarse and one fine filter media pad.

    Eheim Ultra G Canister Aquarium Filters feature:
  • Integrated automatic self priming
  • Safety hose adapters
  • Easy to use locking mechanism
  • Individually fillable filter baskets
  • High quality ceramic spindle and sleeve
  • Completely equipped with filter media


Filter Aquarium/Pump Size Max Head
Eheim Ultra 2071 up to 65 Gal; 250 GPH; 12 watts 4'10"
Eheim Ultra 2073 up to 95 Gal; 276 GPH; 16 Watts 5' 11"
Eheim Ultra 2075 up to 160 Gal; 330 GPH; 16 watts 5' 11"

Each Eheim Canister Filter contains:
  • A prefilter
  • Filter media baskets
  • 9 ft 10" of 5/8" diameter Eheim hose
  • Eheim MECH media
  • Eheim SUBSTRAT PRO media
  • Filter pad and foam filter pad .
  • Coarse pre-filter pad
  • Suction holder
  • Overflow elbow with nozzle pipe
  • Complicated priming techniques are now a thing of the past. The filter system is filled using this convenient priming support at "the push of a button" and immediately the system starts working. The ergometric priming lever fills the 25 L filter canister in just a few movements.

    Dirty aquarium water is brought into the filter through one hose line and filtered aquarium water is sent back to the tank through another.

    Thanks to 4 large, easy-to-use safety clips the filter can be opened and closed in a matter of seconds. Below the clips are carrying handles that are secure and will not open with handling. Integrated safety handle prevents accidental opening while carrying.

    Flow rate indicator in a conspicuous position displays the amount of pumped water and lets you know immediately when the filter needs cleaning.

    Cleaning is very simple with Ultra:

    The filter has castors that make maneuvering easy, but it is firmly positioned on skids when in place.

    The NEW, large, 1.5 L pre-filter is located directly under the pump head. Coarse particles of detritis are immediately caught and cannot collect on the bottom of the canister. Cleaning intervals are longer and cleaning is much easier.

    To clean the pre-filter, simply transport the pre filter to the nearest water tap, wash out the pad and reinsert the clean pre-filter pad back into the filter.

    Now the pre-cleaned water falls to the bottom of the canister and starts to flow through 3 filter baskets which hold 4 L each (total filter volume: 12 L + 1.5 L pre-filter = 13.5 L).

    Thanks to these easy-to-use filter baskets, partial/complete cleaning or partial/complete replacement of the filter media is much easier.

    The Eheim ECCO PRO Canister Filter which stands for "Eheim Convenient Canister Operation", incorporates the features you want most...


    Eheim Ecco Pro Canister Aquarium Filters

    ECCO PRO canister filters offer 3 stages of long-term filtration (mechanical, chemical, and biological) in an easy-to-set-up package.

    The multifunction handle is unique to the Eheim ECCO filter. It combines 3 functions: carrying - opening/closing - priming. Faulty operation is prevented by the red safety adapter.

    This is how it works.:
    In addition to locking and unlocking the filter and use as a carrying handle, it functions as a priming device. After simply connecting the intake and output hoses and arranging your media baskets, move the multifunction handle down to the start position. The water flow will begin. When the filter is full, just plug and play.

    The filter comes complete with media, fittings, and valves. The convenient interlocking media baskets allow for versatility in media setup while preventing water by-pass. With proper media setup, a long service life can be expected, on average 3-6 months between cleanings.

      Easy to Use:
    • Multifunction handle locks for safe carrying
    • Self-primes for immediate water flow
    • Includes quick-release pivot valves and filter pads
    • Adjustable flow rate

    Self-priming 4-in-one aquarium canister filter. Provides Mechanical, Chemical, and Biological filtration and has a water-polishing filter pad.


    Magniflow Canister Filter By Marineland
    The new Magniflow™ Canister Filter makes multi-stage filtration faster, easier, and better than ever. This powerfully designed filter offers a variety of upgrades that make both freshwater and marine aquarium success quick and easy.

    The media trays are stacked on top of each other, and the new design ensures that the water passes through each one. First layer is two Rite-Size Filter Foam Pads for mechanical filteration of particulates from the water. Second tray is Black Diamond Carbon filter bags to remove carbon and other chemical pollutants. The last stage included Bio-Balls for the growth of nitrifying bacteria to clean the water of ammonia and nitrate. At the very top is a Polishing Pad to trap fine debris.

      Magniflow™ Canister Filter Features at a Glance:
    • Top sealing gasket for a better seal. Water tight lid with valve-blocks for quick release without mess. Instead of removing lines and hoses, just remove the whole "valve-block" assembly from the motor head.
    • Fast maintenance. Media baskets are easy to remove and change with the tote handles that lift the stack out of the canister and the easier-to-remove top.
    • Fast, spill-free setup with quick-prime button. Just press the quick-prime button a few times until the water flows into the canister and the filter is good to go.
    • Specially designed directional flow dish that ensures that the water flows through the canister with no by-pass. Filters 100% of the water 100% of the time.
    • Great for both Freshwater and Saltwater.
    Water Polishing
    For increased water clarity! The polishing filter pad acts as a water polisher, removing fine debris. This pad increases water clarity by removing fine particles and polishing aquarium water.



    Biological Filtration
    The included BIO-filter balls aid aquariums in acheiving a biological balance by providing bacteria with a place to grow. The bio-filter balls have a large, multi-faceted surface area for the growth of Bio-Spira® and the beneficial ammonia-neutralizing bacteria responsible for biological filtration. Ammonia-neutralizing bacterias are vital to the success of any aquatic habitat.

    Chemical Filtration
    Enclosed within the two carbon bags, black diamond premium activated carbon works to remove any odors, discoloration, or impurities from aquarium water. Inside the carbon bag, Black Diamond® premium activated carbon removes odors, discoloration, and water impurities.

    Mechanical Filtration
    The filter foam pads captures dirt and debris.



      Specifications:
    • Magniflow 160: 160 gph, aquariums up to 30 gallons; 12.2" x 9.17" x 13.62"

    For super cleaning your aquarium and water polishing, the Vortex Diatom filter is a high-speed canister designed to filter aquarium water to an extremely pure state, without disturbing the natural bacteria levels. Model D-1 diatom filter is for most routine cleaning jobs. Filters over 250 GPH for up to 55 Gallon Aquarium. Clears a 10 gallon tank micron-free in 12 minutes. It is very effective at getting rid of parasites and green water as well as dangerous bacteria. ...


    Vortex D-1 Diatom Aquarium Filter

    It uses a unique diatom powder to filter particles as small as one half - one diatom in size. Even some parasites and bacteria are large enough to be trapped and pulled out of the water by a diatom filter. It is a wonderful "green water" cleaner, as free-floating algae is too large to avoid the filter trap.,

    Diatom Filters remove many free-swimming infectious stages of various parasites from the tank water before they can attach to their hosts, and when the attached adult parasites on the fish die, the fish are eventually left parasite-free. Because many free-floating bacterias are also removed from the tank, wounded fish often heal more quickly (absent the bacterias that cause infections)

    After parasites and toxic algae problems have been eliminated, it is a good idea to schedule diatom filtration on a weekly basis or even continuously for a problem tank.

    Used properly, your Diatom filter will eliminate the need to "tear down" your aquarium to clean.

    The Diatom XL Filter, which filters at up to 300 GPH (and measures 18" high by 7.5" wide at the base), is the highest speed aquarium diatom filter on the market (designed for continuous operation). Filteres aquariums up to 125 gallons.

      Vortex D-1 Diatom Filter Features:
    • Electrical on-off switch and self priming motor
    • 100% filtration of water that passes through the pump - no hidden "by-pass holes"
    • Quiet operation. Motor shaft is connected directly to the impeller (no slipping magnetic drive or squealing belts)
    • Thermally protected motor. Self-contained and designed for continuous operation
    • Adjustable and directional flow
    • Backwashes clean without taking the filter apart. Protected against gravel jam of the impeller
    • Easily recharged with filter media - Diatom filter powder, superchar or water softener may be added while the filter is running.
    • Positively does not change pH
    • New unbreakable chamber base stand and jar!
    • Filters aquariums up to 55 Gallons.
    • Contains starter pack of diatom powder and everything needed to start using immediately.

    The only canister diatom filter you'll ever need! This beauty can filter multiple tanks in a jiffy with new easy-start-easy-move valve. Gives you the FREEDOM to move from tank to tank in a multi-tank environment without spills and mess. Filters up to 250 GPH and tanks up to 55 Gallons....


    Vortex Freedom Diatom Filter
    Designed for continuous use, the Freedom Diatom Filter eliminates the need for other filters. It is a high-speed diatom filter designed to filter aquarium water to an extremely pure state, without disturbing the natural bacteria levels.

    It uses a unique diatom powder to filter particles as small as one half - one diatom in size. Even some parasites and bacteria are large enough to be trapped and pulled out of the water by a diatom filter. It is a wonderful "green water" cleaner, as free-floating algae is too large to avoid the filter trap.

    Diatom Filters remove many free-swimming infective stages of various parasites from the tank water before they can attach to their hosts, and when the attached adult parasites on the fish die, the fish are eventually left parasite-free. Because many free-floating bacterias are also removed from the tank, wounded fish often heal more quickly (absent the bacterias that cause infections)

    After parasites and toxic algae problems have been eliminated, it is a good idea to schedule diatom filtration on a weekly basis or even continuously for a problem tank.

    Used properly, your Freedom Diatom Filter will eliminate the need to "tear down" your aquarium to clean. It will filter 100% of the water 100% of the time - no hidden "by-pass holes".

      Freedom Diatom Filter Features:
    • Hangs on aquarium or sits on the floor
    • New O-ring sealed, flexible, kink resistant tubes
    • Easily moved from tank to tank with the new clear p-29 re-charge valve (included)
    • Thermally protected motor
    • Designed for continuous use
    • Electrical on/off switch
    • Self-contained.
    • Easily recharged
    • Positively does not change pH

    • Diatom filter powder, super char, or water softener may be added while the filter is running
    • New unbreakable chamber base stand and jar!
    • Filters aquariums up to 55 Gallons.
    • Contains starter pack of diatom powder and everything needed to start using immediately.

    New P-29 Recharge Valve is included. It is made of clear ABS. It has one O ring and is now a sealed unit. Two small windows on the face of the valve handle (which are engraved to show "filter" or "charge mode") make it easy to tell if you are filtering your tank or simply re-coating the bag and filtering the water in the filter.

    No-kink tubing allows you the "freedom" to move your filter freely from tank to tank without losing your siphon and without having to re-coat your filter layer. Using the P-29 Recharge Valve also allows you to adjust the water flow from full to slight filtration if so desired.

    Easier siphon starting permits infinitely adjustable water flow. P-29 allows you to move filter from one tank to another without losing siphon. 30 second filter recharge (without kinking hose).
