A beginner aquarist usually starts with a relatively small aquarium. With time, he often decides to purchase a larger aquarium and later, as his enthusiasm and skills grow, an even larger one. However, with each new purchase, one has to update the entire set of aquarium devices, of which the filter is the most expensive one. With MULTIKANI filters, you no longer have to buy a new filter when upgrading your aquarium. The filters can be used with any aquarium. They boast low energy consumption and high performance, relative to the recommended capacity.
Components of the standard package
The MULTIKANI filter consists of a cylindrical container fitted with a lid with shut-off valves. In a standard version, the container is filled with filter media. The filter is supplied with an external suction pump, which enables operation even in very shallow water, e.g. in tanks where semi-terrestrial turtles are kept. The main gaskets in MULTIKANI filters are made of special silicone to guarantee maximal tightness of the device
Mode of operation
The performance of MULTIKANI filters can be smoothly regulated thanks to a continuous control dial. The filter is driven by an independent pump with the throughput of 650 l/h. The pump can be installed either inside or outside of the water tank, so filter containers can be positioned not only under the aquarium but also next to it or even above the water level.
The cleaning of MULTIKANI filters is facilitated by a shut-off valve with the by-pass function. Using the valve, one can easily cut off the flow of water into the filter containers (e.g. when adding another filter container) without having to switch off the pump.
Individual MULTI CARTRIDGE PRO containers can be combined linearly, so that they form columns, and in series, so that they form column batteries. In this way, the capacity of filter media can be gradually expanded. The maximum number of containers that can be combines is eight. As a result, MULTIKANI filters can be successfully used in 20-liter as well as 320-liter aquariums.
MULTI CARTRIDGE PRO containers can be easily replaced using the special wrenches supplied with the filter. The easy expandability of MULTIKANI filters not only saves money but also provides continuity of biological filtration in a new aquarium, which greatly accelerates its maturation and guarantees that water in the tank will remain crystal clear.
Out of the box, the MULTIKANI filter includes carefully selected zeolite with exceptionally high sorption capacity. The zeolite layer is sandwiched between layers of sponge to achieve effective mechanical and chemical filtration of aquarium water.
AQUAEL offers a wide range of additional ready-to-use MULTI CARTRIDGE PRO containers that can be used to expand the MULTIKANI filter. They are ZeoMAX Plus, CarboMAX Plus, BioCeraMAX Pro 600, PhosMAX Basic, and sponge cartridges.
