Giving you the best of two popular aquarium filters: The Canister Filter and the Wet/Dry
The Pro Series supplies optimum and efficient filtration for saltwater aquariums, engineered to deliver unsurpassed 3-stage filtration (mechanical, chemical and biological). This filter provides superb water movement, consistently processing waste and impurities so the aquariumâ€™s water quality remains ideal, thus keeping the aquarium water crystal clear and your tank inhabitants healthy. Rapids Pro-Series distinctive design makes this state-of-the-art filter extremely efficient. Delivering complete biological filtration plus greatly increasing gas exchange as water trickles over exposed Bio-Balls and highly porous Sintered Glass Cylinders, resulting in the rapid oxidation of ammonia and nitrite. Plus the Pro Series Filters come with a built-in protein skimmer, superbly removing dissolved organic material.
The Surface Skimmer Overflow provides optimum skimming, removing aquarium surface contaminants and also increasing surface gas exchange. The patented Surface Skimmer is designed to disrupt the aquarium`s filter water flow in the event of loss of electrical power. As electrical power returns, the Aqua Lifter automatically initiates water flow, priming the Surface Skimmer Overflow and re-establishing aquarium filtration. The only patented Surface Skimmer on the market with the ability to prevent the aquarium draining back into the sump and flooding. Plus the filter comes with the AFS, an Auxiliary Water Reservoir which holds up to 4 gallons of water. This gravity feed water replacement system compensates for evaporation, adding make-up water slowly back into the system. Ideal for keeping water levels at required levels while on vacation or for everyday use. 3/4″ female threaded bulk head fitting required. Comes complete, nothing else to buy.
