This aquarium kit features Marineland's patented BIO-Wheel filtration which sets the industry standard in complete advanced filtration. Through this advanced multi-stage filtration process this filter ensures the best water quality available. Taking this a step further the filter that is integrated into this kit is rated to handle aquariums more than 2 times the size of this one! The process begins with, 100% water-to-media contact for excellent water quality. The mechanical filter floss on the “Rite-Size A” filter cartridge screens out dirt and debris and has a molded ribbed back for maximum water-to-carbon contact. The chemical filtration is driven by the Black Diamond activated carbon inside the filter cartridge and removes odors, discoloration and impurities more effectively than any other carbon available. The filter cartridge should be replaced every 4 weeks since carbon de-activates with use. Biological filtration is powered by the patented BIO-Wheel which provides a wet/dry environment eliminating toxic ammonia and nitrate on contact. This process that breaks down waist and removes ammonia and nitrates relies on beneficial bacteria that live on this BIO-Wheel. The beneficial bacteria require oxygen to live and grow. The BIO-Wheel provides a constant oxygen rich surface for these bacteria with regular exposure to open air where there is 30,000 times more oxygen than under water. Set-up and maintenance of this aquarium could not be easier!
Because both the lighting and filtration on this aquarium are low voltage they work off of the same energy efficient power supply. This means you only need to use one plug for both the filtration and lighting! A large clear opening in the hood provides not only a unique view into your underwater creation, but it also allows easy access for feeding and maintaining your aquarium. This all comes without having to choose between accessing the aquarium or lighting it as the lighting stays fixed even when you remove this panel.
