The Protégé Ultra Series delivers a smooth consistent flow of water to pass through the filtration system. It provides the water flow that is vital for effectively distributing oxygen to fishes and other aquarium inhabitants. Aside from aeration and water circulation, the pump can also operate ornaments and create currents inside the tank.
Multi-Stage Filtration System Capability:
Mechanical Filtration - Add mechanical filter pads to effectively remove unsightly particles from the water, including fish excrement, sludge, uneaten food and dust.
Chemical Filtration - Adding activated carbon and resins will remove various pollutants including dissolved organic compounds and keep the water crystal clear without odor. Effective at removing impurities such as copper, chlorine, dissolved proteins, medications, tap water and impurities. Perfect for sensitive fish and invertebrates.
Biological Filtration - If you have a heavily stocked aquarium or very large fish that produces a greater amount of metabolic waste, just add biological material. These very porous ceramic noodles and bio balls allow efficient biological filtration to effectively process ammonia.
UV Filtration - Through continual use, UV sterilizers can help manage water quality issues due to micro-organisms such as bacteria, algae, and parasites. Free-floating microorganisms in the passing water are affected by the UV light and are no longer able to multiply.
Compact and easy to set-up, the HW Series is suitable for both freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
Maintaining the filter is very simple. The drip-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. The benefit of an external filter such as this is that you can check if there are clogs or blockage without greatly disturbing the fish, decorations or the substrata of the tank.
