The CF300MKII canister filter has two convenient Priming options that eliminate the need for manual siphoning! Say good bye to a mouth full of aquarium water!!!
How Does the CF-300MKII Canister Filter Work?
Unfiltered aquarium water enters the CF Series Canister Filter and passes by the U.V. Sterilizing Bulb flowing down the stack of vertical cylinder cutouts to the bottom of the CF Filter. Then water is pushed up through the filtration media compartments; the bottom compartment first, the middle compartment second, and the top compartment third. The filtered aquarium water then returns from the CF Canister back into the aquarium.
