If you own a big aquarium, or if your aquarium is heavily-stocked with plants and fish, you need a powerful first-step filtration system that can remove unwanted particles and sediments before going to the other steps that complete the whole filtration process. Your aquarium will do well with a canister filter that can collect a lot of dirt in its filter body.
The Hagen Fluval 205 Canister Filter from Pet Store
is a large-capacity filter that maximizes the space it has, giving way to a marked increase in the efficiency of filtration. The result is a very thorough mechanical filtration process that leaves water clear and ready for biological and chemical filtration. The good news is you can use this canister filter
for biological and chemical filtration, too, because it has separate modules that can house biological and chemical media. You can interchange the media anytime you want.
The Hagen Fluval 205 Canister Filter is easy to clean because of the AquaStop feature, which puts a stop in water flow as needed without having to disconnect hoses. This eliminates messy leaks and spills. Also,the lid has with clamps fitted with lift-lock mechanisms. These clamps tightly lock in the lid, but they're easy to lift open when you unlock them.
