Rena SmartFilter 55 hang on back filter system for aquariums up to 50 gal (208 Liters). Finally a hang on filter system that gives you the filtration of a canister filter with the simplicity of a hang-on type filter!The innovative design features a new 4 sided filter cartridge system with center flow design. The pressurized water from the aquarium flows upwards through the center of each cartridge and out through the four sides insuring all water is filtered and doesn't bypass the filter media. The four sided cartridge also presents a much larger filter surface area than conventional hang on filters for increased filtering capacity. The three-layer cartridges consist of an inner layer of mechanical filtration, a middle layer of BioChem Zorb and a final layer of mechanical filtration. The water then flows through to the discharge chamber where is is bathed in BioChem Stars for efficient biological filtration before exiting back into the tank.
For aquarium keepers new to the hobby the Rena SmartFilter system provides a major step up in convenience and ease of use from current hang on type filters and for hobbyists that want to enjoy the beauty of their aquariums without the hassles of current hang on filters the Rena SmartFilter system is the smart choice. For advanced hobbyists the Rena SmartFilter also offers some benefits. If you currently have another filter system such as a Rena Filstar XP external canister filter the Rena SmartFilter makes an excellent addition for supplemental filtration of your tank and as a backup while your external filter is down for maintenance.
