With an airlift system, super biochemical sponge filter features silent operation, and has an excellent filtering effect while oxygenating the water. The specially developed foam materials support the colonization of bacteria, allowing for mechanical and biological filtration, which will break down harmful ammonia and nitrite material resulting in a cleaner living environment for your fish. Particularly useful as a breeding filter or as a secondary filter. Will reduce noise from the air pump and consumes low wattage.
Most fit to external or top filters as a pre-filtration unit.
No dead spots in cylinder bio-chemical foam offering full filtration.

Does this filter work independly from a aquarium air pump or does it also act as an air pump as well as a filter? Will this work in a 3 gallon Aquarium?

The XY-2811 does not have a motor. The unit can be driven by a smaller Air Pump such as our AP-20 or low GPH Powerhead. The unit will effectively filter a 3 gallon aquarium.
Regarding the best choice for your scenario; we recommend using a smaller Air Pump. The smallest GPH Powerhead we offer does 158 GPH. This is too much flow for a 3 gallon aquarium.
Below is a link to the AP-20.
