Eheim 2229 External Filter Features:

The EHEIM professionelwet/dry filters offer efficiency surpassing that of a trickle filter. The water movement within the filter is bi-directional allowing for extended contact time between bacteria colonies, oxygen and toxins, which are thus decomposed much more rapidly than in a traditional filter.

• Decomposition of ammonium - 73% faster, nitrite - -67% faster.
• Exchange of oxygen and CO2 is accomplished by means of displacement through the specially designed breathing tube.
• The water output pulsates as the filter fills and empties, achieving a wavelike action.

Eheim 2229 External Filter - Suggested Filter Media

Filter media fulfil various functions. On the one hand, they hold back dirt particles and suspended floating matter and, on the other hand, they ensure the biological conversion of toxic waste or the chemical alteration of the water.

One differentiates between the following basic types of media: mechanical, biological, adsorptive and chemical. Ideal water conditions very much depend on the correct use of filter media.

EHEIM filter pads are used to separate the different filter media layers in standard filters.

EHEIM filter cartridges made of special foam materials provide a large filter surface. They can be changed in a few simple steps and after their "running in" time they not only function mechanically but also biologically. In addition there are also active carbon cartridges, which are excellently suited for adsorption.
