We were recently called to replace the filter in a freshwater cichlid breeding tank in Stoughton, MA.

This filter was the “hang-on” type that relied on pads and sponges as media to filter debris and pollutants from the water.

When we arrived at the house, the filter was very dirty and the tank’s owner wanted a new one. We decided to do away with the hanging filter.

Instead, we installed this much more efficient pump and filtration system underneath the tank.

This is a multi-stage filter meaning it’s stack-and-flow design forces water through different media trays for efficient mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration. This model also has an integrated UV sterilizer to kill any unwanted bacteria in your tank before they multiply and infect your tank.
