Chemical filtration cartridges include 25% more activated carbon than most competitors to remove more pollutants for longer period of time.
Higher flow rates ensure higher dissolved oxygen content for healthier, more active fish. Also higher turnover means more water filtered per hour.
Patented biological grid provides more surface area for sustaining a healthy biological bacteria bed. A second wet-dry grid adds more biological filtration and increases the oxygen supply as the water flows back into the aquarium.
The internal pump is actually submerged in the aquarium. This helps dampen noise, eliminates leaks and starts up automatically (no priming) after cleaning or power interruptions. No more messy spills.
All-in-all, one of the best power filters today.
Increased circulation from larger Bio Wheels provide more surface area for nitrifying bacteria to grow. As the Bio Wheel turns, water contacts the bacteria, allowing it to eliminate toxic ammonia and nitrite. As the Bio Wheel turns, water is also oxygenated. This keeps the tank and the nitrifying bacteria healthy.
Popular Rite-Size filter cartridges make media care easy. New sealed motor and tighter cover design cut down water noise.
Each aquarium filter cartridge is also packed with Black Diamond Premium Activated Carbon. As the water passes through the carbon, harmful contaminants are removed.
Refillable Media Containers can hold an additional 4 oz of activated carbon, White Diamond Ammonia Neutralizing Crystals, Diamond Blend (the ultimate in purifying power) or other chemical filtration media to maximize pollution removal capacity.
Cartridges remove waste particles, odors and discoloration, Bio-Bag filter traps particulates from the water. Ultra-Activated carbon removes dissolved contaminants. And the Bio-foam provides plenty of surface area to grow beneficial bacteria to biologically clean the water.
Reservoir prevents back siphoning in the event of a power failure.
Flow control knob allows you to adjust the flow rate for diffrent bypes of maintenance: Fatser for quick cleaning - slower during feeding to prevent the flow from taking the food right into the filter.
Whisper® Bio-Bag® Cartridges come with every filter
Easy to use, the unit hangs on the back or the side of the aquarium, just like a standard filter. It is designed to be self-starting and maintenance-free.
The Protein Skimmer is driven by a rejuvenation venturi powerhead. Bubble dwell time is increased by the counter-current flow in the skimmer column. The quality of the foam collected can be controlled by raising and lowering the collection cup.
To set up the BAK-PAK™ 2, hang the unit behind the aquarium and plug it in -- that's it. New improved design incorporates an easy to clean intake tube and an enclosed, directional outflow to reduce salt splash and micro-bubbles entering into tank. The new design also uses a smoke colored break-resistant collection cup.
The new Accela pump is similar to the Maxi-jet 1200, however, it includes some important added benefits. The pump has been modified to include a venturi intake which efficiently draws in more air with less restriction on the pump. This results in more effective protein skimming with a significantly increased "sweet spot" for skimmer operation.
CPR is proud to introduce the hang-on skimmer that all reefkeepers have been waiting for, the Cyclone BAK-PAK™ 2R+. This new skimmer is designed for use on reef tanks where biological filtration is not necessary, but still incorporates all of the other features that have made the BAK-PAK™ line of skimmers so popular.
New "Tri Chamber" design of the BAK-PAK™ 2R+ takes the place of the biological section, and when combined with a new and improved outlet design, provides an effective way to reduce bubbles caused by system imbalances.
