The extremely quiet Filstar XP is great for all types of aquariums. It has a large media capacity, strong flow rates and solid construction combined with ease of maintenance.
These impressive professional grade filters are loaded with innovative features for advanced hobbyists, but are easy to use for beginners.
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.
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.
From a compact external canister filter for aquarium sizes up to 250L to a large filter for aquarium sizes up to 1500L, EHEIM Classic filters are equipped with high quality components with an excellent price-performance value.
Balanced pump-output to canister-volume ratio ensures optimum conditions in your aquarium.
Low power consumption conserves energy.
The pump head and filter canister are connected simply and very functionally with functional clips and a high quality silicone o-ring.
Classic external canister filters can also be operated with sponges and pads. However EHEIM recommends layering with EHEIM filter media. Tailored filter media sets are available for every model.
High quality EHEIM accessories allow these filters to grow with your needs and guarantee long-lasting enjoyment of your hobby.
ECCO 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.
H.O.T. Magnums install in minutes...a feature which makes it ideal for multiple aquarium water polishing (includes the Water Polishing Micron Cartridge). Snap-lock, leak-proof connectors eliminate the need for hoses or tubing. And H.O.T. Magnum's U/L -listed synchronous motor and epoxy-encapsulated electrical components are your assurance of safe operation.
Each filter includes a 350 GPH pump and a micron cleaning cartridge for water polishing.
Water enters the canister filter, surrounds the media and flows through rather than around it. No-bypass ensures total filtration. And Magnum's versatile systems design also allows you to connect the output to a BIO-Wheel PRO for wet/dry biological filtration.
The only canister filter of its kind with a patented design, self-priming, bottom-mounted motor, the Magnum« Canister Filter provides the ultimate in easy setup and restart capability.
For tanks to 100 gallons.
It's a design that delivers the best available technology in mechanical, chemical and biological filtrationů and it's a design that is unmatched for capturing particulates.
Water enters, passes through coarse filter pads to remove large particulates and then is pushed through the Carbon Filter Bag to remove odors, discolorations and impurities. Then through the Biological Media Tray where BioFilter Balls contain beneficial, ammonia-neutralizing bacteria that begin to digest biological contaminates. Optional BioFilter Ceramic Rings can be added for even more biological filtration.
On top of it all, the water is run through the Polishing Filter Pad to remove any fine debris remaining and to give the water a beautiful clarity before returning to the tank.
When it's time to service your C-Series canister filter, all you do is push a lever, turn the key, and lift out the easy-access media trays.
When it's time to start your filter again, just press the "Quick-Prime" button to fill the canister with water for easy priming.
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 Diatom filter will eliminate the need to "tear down" your aquarium to clean.
Model D-1 diatom filter is for most routine cleaning jobs. Filters over 250 GPH. Clears a 10 gallon tank micron free in 12 minutes.
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).
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".
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).
The filter bag traps the larger particulates.
Using both the filter bag and the powder, the water is polished down to 1 micron.
