How does the Aqueon 55 work?
Dense floss installed in the Aqueon 55 removes debris, fish waste and any other unwanted particles from the water. It attracts those particles and once they come in contact with the filtration unit the waste is stored until it is eliminated by changing the floss.
It contains an area with activated carbon that purges bad odors, toxins and discoloration. Fish naturally produce toxic nitrates and ammonia from their life cycle and their waste is handled by a patented bio-holster inside this machine. A diffuser grid is also utilized remove other toxins and it also adds more oxygen for active fish. Water splashing is reduced dramatically and therefore the return of particles towards the floss is remarkably quiet.
The Aqueon 55 Quiet Flow Power Filter uses 4 levels of filtration to produce healthy and clean water for fish to survive in.
- it starts with a mechanical pull
- followed by chemical filtration
- next comes dilution
- during the final stage, all the harmful toxins are removed
Once the filtration process has finished, it’s followed by a biological stage. The next, most important step is adding in more fresh oxygen.
Finally, the Aqueon 55 produces beautifully clear aquarium water with the wet or dry step as per user’s convenience.
The Aqueon 55 fish tank filter features an internal design that automatically eradicates leaks, diminishes noises and involuntarily starts up once power is supplied.
