9. Unpack and assemble the filter according to the included directions. If it is a hanging filter, place it on the back side of the tank. Make sure that the filter intake tube is as close to the tank bottom as possible. Cover the intake for your filter with some sort of mesh or net, that will keep the fry from getting sucked into your filter (plastic net bags and pantyhose are popular materials for this). Secure the mesh with an aquarium-safe method, such as a rubber band. Canister filters can be placed next to or underneath the tank, and they can be hooked in-line with a flow-through chiller. Place the filter power cord near the power strip.

The outside power filter hangs on the back of the tank aquarium. The filter draws water into the filter where it passes through a filter cartridge or other filtering material. Most power filters use filter cartridges because of the ease and convenience of cartridge removal during maintenance of the filter. The filter cartridge is covered with layers of polyester fiber and contains activated carbon. The filter cartridge will remove fish waste and uneaten fish food while the activated carbon removes impurities such as odors and discolorations. An outside power filter can also provide aeration and water circulation. As the water flows back into the aquarium, the water movement will enhance favorable gas exchange and increase the amount of beneficial dissolved oxygen in the water. The filter cartridge should be replaced every 4 weeks or less, depending on the amount of fish or number of daily feedings.Filter or Heater cover has been designed to fit only in the right hand side corner of your aquarium. All our filter covers are made from the same material as 3D backgrounds, so they match perfectly. Care should be exercised when using an undergravel filter. If the tank is tightly covered with a glass canopy, air will not be pulled from outside the aquarium to mix sufficiently with the water when the surface is agitated. Thus, there will be less dissolved oxygen. This problem can be corrected by using a power head with a venturi or an air pump. Both draw air from outside the aquarium and mix it with water to form small bubbles. Timely water changes and hydro-vacuuming the substrate will remove the particulate matter from the filter bed and keep the filter bed from becoming clogged. Also, do not cover the undergravel filter with decorations or rocks. These will impede the flow of water carrying dissolved oxygen for the bacteria through the filter bed.The intake tube of this aquarium filter has a telescopic mechanism which makes it very easy to maintain. In fact, there is also U-shaped tube that is present in this aquarium filter and a seal ring is coupled with the motor unit of this aquarium filter. A cover that is protective is given to the biological trickle chamber of the aquarium filter and an impeller plus a cover assembly is also included in this aquarium filter. A chemical basket for safety comes along with this aquarium filter and there is also a filter case and a filter cover for this aquarium filter. A leveling device aids the aquarium filter for its aquatic cleansing capabilities. The motor o-ring of this aquarium filter needs to be replaced at least once in every year so as to prevent the aquarium filter motor from leakage and the bio screen of this aquarium filter can be replaces between 2 months to 3 months of regular use.
