Tunze The practical quick filter for every aquarium...

The Comline® Multifilter 3168 is a mechanical quick filter for aquariums from 53 to 132 gallons (200 to 500 liters), completely installation-ready with a cartridge quick-change filter, Comline® Pump 2000 and Silence Magnet Holder. The filter can be used for both bottom as well as surface water, and its output is easily adjustable from 132 to 581 GPH (500 up to 2200l/h). It can be retrofitted with the Osmolator® 3155 ATO system (sold separately) to enable a perfect surface suction as well as the required compensation for the evaporation. Instead of the installed Filter Cartridges 800.01, it is also possible to use the Activated Carbon Acrylic Wadding Cartridges 800.03 or Refillable Cartridges 870/871 for carbon, Quickphos, Silphos or loose wadding.

The Comline® Multifilter 3168 is also a universal internal filter for all filter media.Only two parts need to be replaced (included in the delivery) and the Multifilter is transformed into a universal internal filter with a filter volume of 1200cm³ (73 in³). It can be refilled with all kinds of loose micro and macro wadding, activated carbon or other filter media, and integrates itself as a main filter into aquariums from 53 to 132 gallons (200 to 500 liters) and also as an additional filter for a targeted filtering (activated carbon, zeolite, etc.) in larger systems. Silicone buffers on the Multifilter prevent the transfer of vibrations to the aquarium glass.
