The state-of-the-art design makes this filter extremely efficient. Thoroughly engineered to deliver the best in 3-stage filtration, this filter provides superb mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration. Delivering optimum water movement and consistently processing waste and impurities so the aquarium water quality remain ideal.

The Overflow Box delivers most favorable surface skimming removing aquarium surface contaminants and sending them to the filter where these waste materials are trapped and removed. This unique Overflow Box is designed to disrupt the filter's water flow in the event of electrical power loss therefore preventing the aquarium water from draining back down in to the filter and overflowing. When electrical power returns, the Overflow Box automatically initiates water flow, reestablishing aquarium filtration.
The Ultraviolet Sterilizer destroys unwanted microscopic organisms that are free floating in the water such as harmful parasites, viruses, algae and bacteria by exposing them to a high-intensity ultraviolet (UV) light. UV light has the ability to affect the function of living cells by altering the structure of the cell's nuclear material, or DNA. The end result is the organisms die off eradicating your aquarium water of these unwanted organisms. Unlike chemical treatments that can potentially harm the fish and plants in your aquarium, an UV Sterilizer does not leave any residuals that can be harmful.
The super porous Sintered Glass Bio-Cylinders with the additional Bio-Balls supplies unsurpassed biological filtration, resulting in the rapid oxidation of ammonia, and nitrite while beneficial gas exchange is greatly increased as water trickles over the expose Bio-Cylinders and Bio-Balls. The unequaled Carbon Cloth Pillow provides full absorption kinetics with 100% activation, aggressively removing discoloration and odors.
Rapids Submersible Pump
The Overflow Box automatically initiates water flow through Venturi action. As water is returned under pressure from the Filter Sump to the aquarium, the Venturi Valve Connector located on the Return Tube uses the kinetic energy from the water flow to produce a partial vacuum. This low-pressure zone draws air from the Overflow Siphon Compartment automatically initiating water flow and starting the filter.
Period inspection and cleaning of the impeller is recommended.
The Quartz Sleeve should be cleaned every three months of operation or more depending on water parameters to ensure optimum efficiency. The slightest amount of bio-slime or detritus can affect the UVC transmittance through the glass into the water.
