Maidenhead Aquatics are delighted to bring you another exclusive product- the AquaManta EFX External Filter.
External filters are an excellent option for medium sized aquariums and upwards. Their large size and power means they are the most suitable option for larger aquariums, or those that are heavily stocked or house messy fish which produce a lot of waste. Excellent for aquariums housing large and/or big groups of cichlids, carnivorous fish species, oddballs, stingrays etc. They are also a great option for those who wish to invest a bit more in a filtration system in order to cut back on aquarium maintenance. A larger filter means larger surface area for beneficial bacteria which means more waste can be broken down. Being an external filter there is no large unit that sits inside the aquarium itself, just some intake and outlet pipes, this makes it easier to create a more natural aquascape and also gives your fish more room to swim! It is worth remembering the clean out your filter impellor regularly in order to keep your filter working to its full potential.
The AquaManta EFX filters boast a high powered yet quiet and energy-efficient design with a quick-release tap system that aims to ensure simple mess free maintenance. The integrated Priming button means effortless restarting of the filter after it has been powered off and emptied. They come supplied complete with all filter media and accessories for quick and easy to follow set up, as well as a complete step by step instruction manual included ensuring successful fish keeping. On top of all that they have a 4 Year guarantee!

The EFX filters combine the latest technology to provide a quiet and efficient filter that delivers what you expect - superb water quality.
The combination of multiple media’s ensures the balance of mechanical, chemical and biological processes, ensuring healthy water conditions in your aquarium. Water enters the filter and is pumped to the base of the canister filter where it is evenly distributed across the base. From there it flows upwards firstly through the 15ppi Course Foam to extract the larger particles. The 2nd phase is the Activated Carbon Module which traps the finer particles, helps remove dissolved organic matter. Carbon also removes chloramines, Chlorine, heavy metals as well as helping to maintain clear water by removing ‘dyes’ from the water. Water then passes to the Advanced Biological Media which is where most of the transformation of ammonia and nitrites will take place through specific bacteria that will colonise on the extremely porous surface of this excellent media. In the final chamber of the filter, the water first travels through a Fine Filter Foam that provides additional biological filtration properties. The Phosphate Removal Pad removes unwanted phosphates from the water helping to eliminate algae and slime growth in the aquarium. It improves water quality and reduces maintenance requirements. Finally, the White Wool Filter Pad removes microscopic particles and polished the water before it returns to the aquarium.
The integrated Quick Release Tap System means mess-free, fast and simple removal of the filter unit for your regular maintenance.
