Thanks to the experience gained in more than half a century in the fluid dynamics, in our product we propose the following solutions:

Designed specifically for macroalgae
Suitable for breeding macroalgae in a controlled environment. The internal rack allow the exploitation of the entire chamber
and ensure diffused
lighting. The upper grill prevents the dispersion of ghe algae into the sump tank also in the event of rollover.

Cartridge loading system
The filter chamber can be easily removed and reloaded in seconds. Our filters use an innovative cartridge system that allows removal
replacement of the filter material (resins, carbons, zeolite, algae, etc.) without having to remove the whole filter and load line from the sump.

Distinctive compact design
Designed with top overflow and submerged operation, these filters are compact and safe against the risk of flooding than traditional extarnal filters.
This solution is extremely useful in modern aquariums often crowded with pumps and accessories.

Innovative Easy-Flip gasket
The filter chamber uses an "Easy Flip" lip seals for a firm grip and easy extraction.
The rotating locking system secure the cartridge to the base
during moving operations and maintenance.

Independent LED lighting
Lighting is provided by a low voltage strip LED inserted in a central chamber. The lighting kit is not included in the filter,
in this way you can choose
according to your preference from different illuminations of different power and color available on the market.
Otherwise is possible to use our basic
lighting kit sold separately.

Versatile connection system
The load hose can be connected to the filter using the hose connection supplied. Alternatively,
the hose connection can be replaced with any
commercial fitting with thread 1/2" or 3/4” (according to size).

Easy and thorough maintenance
Our product can be disassembled virtually in every single component.
The generous thicknesses of the materials used ensure excellent resistance
during all maintenance,
while small component reduction facilitates cleaning and replacement of individual worn components.
