Using a Powerhead in combination with an AquaClear Quick Filter provides added safe mechanical filtration for cleaner water conditions and protects baby fish. PowerHead includes a unique reverse flow feature that forces water down the undergravel riser stem and beneath the gravel. This helps promote bacterial growth from the bottom up. Injection of oxygen-rich water beneath the undergravel bed supports superior conditions for beneficial nitrifying bacteria.
Powerhead includes the following design, safety and utility innovations: a compact, energy-efficient, and completely submersible motor, insulated in epoxy resin to protect against harsh fresh and salt water environments; a venturi aeration feature which increases surface agitation and gas exchange; a convenient rim attachment bracket that fits easily on most standard aquarium rims; and flow control.
