Zoo Med Nano 10 External Canister Filter
Providing adequate filtration is an integral part of aquarium care. To help you maintain optimal water quality for your aquatic inhabitants, Zoo Med has developed the Nano 10 External Canister Filter.
Designed for use in fresh or saltwater habitats up to 10 gallons in size, this powerful and energy-efficient filter employs 3 highly effective stages to keep your water clean and your fish happy. It features an adjustable flow rate that maxes out at 80 gph, and includes an optional spray bar to increase oxygenation and efficiency.
Stage 1 - Biological - ceramic rings provide an ideal surface for the colonization of beneficial bacteria. They help improve water quality by converting harmful waste (e.g. ammonia) into relatively harmless nitrates.
Stage 2 - Chemical - a pouch filled with premium activated carbon removes potentially harmful contaminants and impurities including discoloration, heavy metals, odors, and organic waste.
Stage 3 - Mechanical - a fine mechanical filter sponge effectively traps and removes debris and particulates from the water (e.g. uneaten food, waste). It also provides supplementary biological filtration.
The Zoo Med Nano 10 is designed for easy installation, operation, and maintenance. It comes will all the required parts and media, and boasts an easy priming feature to simplify initial and post-cleaning start-ups. It also features anti-vibration bushings to ensure near-silent operation.
Performing routine cleanings and media changes couldn't be easier thanks to the Nano's easy-open filter head. Simply shift the locking slides to gain instant access to the media and impeller for maintenance and/or replacement!
