Part of the Fluval® 05 Series of advanced external canister filters for aquariums, Fluval® 405 is the filtration system of choice for discerning aquarists who want to achieve maximum versatility and premium performance to create aquatic masterpieces.
Like all Fluval® 05 filters, Fluval® 405 is a multi-stage filtration system that utilizes the entire canister volume for radically increased contact time for optimum filtration efficiency. The mechanical stage has vertical, twin foam pre-filters that prevent clogging of chemical and biological filter media. The chemical and biological stages are housed in independent modules. Filter media can be changed independently to ensure a consistent level of beneficial nitrifying bacteria.
Fluval® 405 includes many unrivaled features, including a reinforced canister for lasting durability, Instant Prime for quick filter start-up, an AquaStop? valve that allows quick hosing disconnections without creating a vacuum, lift-lock clamps that make assembly and disassembly a snap, a high output motor for outstanding performance and safety, a precision-engineered and balanced impeller assembly with durable ceramic shaft for quiet and lasting operation, a self-flushing impeller well that keeps the impeller cool and debris-free for less maintenance, and ribbed, non-kink hosing that allows quick and easy installation and supports better water flow.
The Fluval® 405 External Canister Filter provides complete filtration for aquariums up to 400 Litres (100 U.S. gallons). It comes with an installation DVD.
