The Professional 250 External Filter from Hydor provides highly effective multi-stage filtration for freshwater and marine aquariums. Loaded with filter media and value-adding features, this sleek and silent filter delivers superior performance, user-friendly maintenance, and a pleasant fishkeeping experience.
Ready for action right out of the box, the Hydor Professional 250 includes all the components, fittings, and hosing required for high-powered filtration. It features swiveling intake and output connections for an accommodating installation, and an integrated priming pump for effortless, push-button startup.
Suitable for aquariums up to 75 gallons (250 liters) in size, the Professional 250 dispenses 200 gph of filtering efficiency while consuming a modest 17 watts. Its bypass-free design ensures that water passes directly through the 2 large media baskets for effective removal of impurities and free-floating debris. All media baskets feature easy-lift handles for easy maintenance and media substitutions.
Included Filter Media
Biological - sintered quartz bio-rings help establish a biological balance in your aquarium. They provide a macroporous surface for the cultivation of beneficial bacterial colonies.
Mechanical - a fine mechanical sponge traps the smallest particulates, while a more porous coarse sponge captures larger debris. The result is polished, crystal clear water.
Chemical - an optional activated carbon pad eliminates discoloration, odors, and other pollutants for a healthier and more attractive aquarium (carbon pad sold separately).
To guarantee unwavering performance, the Hydor Professional 250 employs a ceramic shaft motor which offers improved heat resistance and longevity. This space-saving filter also boasts a modest footprint, allowing it to fit comfortably under most cabinets. Finally, it features anti-skid stabilizers that keep it firmly in place, while also helping to dampen vibrations for silent operation. For quality assurance and peace of mind, the Professional 250 is UL listed and comes with a 2-year limited manufacturer's warranty.
Please note: For marine aquariums and heavier bio-loads, Hydor recommends that you select the next model up from the suggested aquarium size.
