The SunSun HW-303B External Aquarium Filter system utilizes a multi-stage approach to filtration. Filtering aquarium tank water throughÿthree (3)ÿinternal layered baskets filled with assortedÿfilter media materialÿit provides extremely thorough biological, mechanical and chemical filtration.
This Canister draws water into the filter through an inlet tubeÿand 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 volumeÿtanks.
The three flexible media trays allow you to add other filtration media such as SunSun?s activated carbons, ceramic rings or bio-balls (additional can be purchase in separately listing). By filtering your tank using the filter media you will observeÿa vastly improved level of waste-free water through extremely strong biological purification. The filter?s easy-accessÿlayered filter media basket?sÿmake it simple to customize your media choices to suit your aquarium and fish livestock needs.
The built in UV sterilizer exposes passing water to lethal doses of ultraviolet light, killing, sterilizing or otherwise irreparably damaging many micro-organisms. Your fish tank water is pumped slowly past the UV light which is sealed inside a quartz glass sleeve which is designed to allow the maximum amount of UV to pass through the water.
Maintaining the filterÿis very simple. Theÿdrip-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 returnedÿto continue its operation.
