Tetra's EX 1200 plus external aquarium filter offers an efficient way of filtering the water in any tank with a capacity of at least 250 litres. The polluted aquarium water is cleaned using a five-step process and a variety of different filter media. The water is passed through ceramic filter rings, bio filter balls, traditional filter foam, carbon filter media and filter floss to remove the various dirt particles and provide biological, mechanical and chemical filtration. The practical handles on the individual filter cartridges make it easy to clean the filter and replace the filter media, and the outflow pipe and hose can be adjusted to suit the size of the aquarium without any difficulty. There are also control valves on the inlet and outlet pipes to accurately set the flow of water and adapt it to suit different requirements. For cleaning purposes, simply shut off the valves entirely and remove the filter unit from the connection equipment. The column of water is retained to ensure that there is no need to repeat the suction process when reconnecting the device.
Depending on the level of pollution and wear and tear, the filter media should be replaced approximately every 6-12 months.

  • low control valves rotate to simplify tubing placement
  • Extremely quiet and powerful
  • 4 separate filter baskets with carrying handle for easy cleaning
  • incl. prefilter for longer service intervals
  • integrated start automatic

Each filter has three roles in a planted aquarium. In order of importance:

It is the most important! Toxic and algae-causing ammonia in the aquarium must be decomposed. As fast as possible. Billions of bacteria growing in the filter convert ammonia into nitrite and then nitrate.

Nutrients (plant food and CO2) must reach the plants. Solid decomposition products should be kept afloat. Good performance is essential.

Solid decomposition products must be physically removed from the aquarium and decomposed in a filter or removed during cleaning.

For a filter to fully perform all three roles, it must meet several criteria. Ideally suitable to have a bucket of the right size to store the right amount of filter media. The filter material contained in it must be of adequate quality and variety. The pump in the filter must have sufficient capacity. The filter should be easy to clean so that the cumbersome process does not deter the aquarist from regular maintenance. Plus, the filter needs to be reliable; no one wants to flood a living room or office due to a cracked tap or joint.
