The Power Filter 50G, for 30- to 50-gallon fresh or saltwater aquariums, provides efficient 3-stage filtration. This compact aquarium filter offers control and convenience with a self-priming submerged pump for instant water flow and quiet operation.
When plugged in, the Power Filter 50G's internal pump immediately starts water flowing through the filter. This is critical in the event of a power outage or interruptions. The filter will automatically start up when energy is restored. Plus, motor noise is reduced, since the pump is submerged in water.
The Power Filter 50G features internal biological ridges that extend from the spillway to the base on the inside of the filter housing for maximum biological filtration with minimal noise. High-density filter floss captures debris and floating particulates. Plus, activated carbon embedded in the filter floss enhances water clarity. No need for multiple layers of media to achieve desired results! Filter cartridges are extremely easy to insert and replace (monthly for best results).
The Power Filter 50G measures 6" x 4" x 8" high overall.
Remove filter from the packaging and insert intake tube. Rinse the included filter cartridge with cool water and place it in the filter. Position filter on your aquarium in your desired location (such as near the rear corner). Once you've arranged a drip loop in the electrical cord, plug in the filter.
Caution: Disconnect power supply when cleaning or changing filter cartridges. Keep filter out of reach of children. Follow instructions closely - rinse filter cartridge thoroughly with cold water before using. Inspect regularly and replace per instructions.
