The new Tunze Comline® filters opens the way for compact aquarium components designed for internal operation, are ultra-functional and are highly-sophisticated. The system creates a natural atmosphere in the aquarium at a minimum size. The goal always remains the same, more performance and less space.

Tunze Streamfilter 3163 is a unique filter and a first of its kind, utilizing a propeller pump to provide both flow and filtration. It is suitable for marine and freshwater aquariums from 15-105 gallons and features a 475gph propeller pump. The filter features surface suction as well as a bottom intake and the user can adjust the ratio of surface and bottom water removed. The filter includes a mounting area for the Tunze 3155 Osmolator sensor as well as a heater up to 75W (8" maximum length) to keep the installation tidy and optimize the efficiency. Any loosely packed wadding or filter media, such as activated carbon or phosphate-removal media, can be used.

Magnets Weak

Good product but the magnets are barely strong enough to hold it to the aquarium. Magnets on my skimmers from them are much stronger. Over 1/4" thick they barely hold.

Thought this would have too much water movement for my musk turtle but it has a larger output than my other internal filter giving more gph without a lot of turbulence. Lots of room for whatever filter media you wish to use. So far water is very clear with a couple layers of bulk filter material and some ceramic media in a bag. Only problem is one of the tabs broke when I stuffed my media in too hard. Will have to order new case.

Great product!

I have been running this streamfilter for a few week. Opens easy for any media filtration, I run 1 unit of GFO/Carbon product as well as some sponge filters and it works great. I recommend taking out the cotton wadding that it comes with, it plugs up quick and hold air bubbles which then all squirt out at once every 15-30 min spraying annoying bubbles everywhere. Overall great product.
