Philips Tropical Aquarium Purifier

Unfortunately the nitrates still build up, perhaps slightly slower but i still do a 10% water change weekly, i used to do a 20% weekly but since installing it i only do a 10%. I am very pleased with it, you won’t believe how much clearer the water becomes. I thought my water was clear before but now its fantastic. You can never smell any Ozone, you can slightly hear the Ozone generator sparking, but if you put it out the way you won’t here it. The rotor inside the tank is slightly noisy, If you turn down the Ozone by means of restricting the inlet flow (screw valve) it quietens it down somewhat. But overall it brilliant at keeping the water crystal clear, and the water seems somewhat sterile, no smells or odors from the water My tank is 4 foot and have the following fish 3 clown fish 6 mollys 1 gibbicep 1 Bristlenose pleco 3 blind cave fish 1 5″ hoplo 1 6″ featherfin 2 pearl gouramis 6 odessa barbs 3 tetra 2 rams 1 firemouth cichlid 1 spotted raphael catfish 2 angel fish 2 corys 1 kribensis 2 bloodfin tetras 1 banjo catfis

    @Fairy123Tail i paid 80 pound for this model, got mine from ripples water life. They have several stores in England. What area are you from?

  • Fairy123Tail on January 30, 2012

    How much do they cost and where can i get one from?

    It’s a claim only valid for aquaria with a balanced ecosystem (not too many fish, good amount of plants, mature bacteria culture). In general it reduces maintenance by a factor 3.
    You get both the aerator and the purifier in the package. Don’t need anything else.
    If you prefer not to use the aerator, there’s an accessory (venturi) that can replace the aerator: plastic piece, put it on the outlet of your filter and you get a controlled bubble colomn with the extra power plug.

    Cheers for the info mate, I think I might take the plunge and buy one of these bad boys.

    hi mate, unfortunately this type of filter only reacts with organic compounds within the water, so you still need a basic filter.
    My ammonia and nitrite levels have always been zero before i brought this. But the water quality is definatly superb!! It makes your aquarium seem like there is no water in as it so crystal clear,
    I would definatly recomend one to you.the water is like a sterile environment now and there is no smells at all

  • SlipperyStoat on January 31, 2012

    Hi, is this any good and would you recommend it? Been tempted to get one but it seems to good to be true. Have your Ammonia + Nitrite remaind at zero? I presume this would replace the internal fliter which I am currenlty using, so I dont need to run an internal fliter to go with this?

    @Almelorw very funny, its not a fart why will my fish die?

  • Almelorw on January 31, 2012

    You dirty little bastard. DONT FART DURUNG FILMING.
    I dont like that. It’s nasty. And the purifier does not help against that.


    TIME OF THE FART : 1 minute and 12 seconds

    This purifier does a amazing job, the water becomes Crystal Clear in a few weeks, i thought my water was clear but this makes it seem HD quality.
    I still do a 20% water change every 2 weeks though, because Unless you have a denitrification filter you still get a build up of nitrates, and only water changes will reduce nitrates
    The purifier is two units, a ozone unit thats situated outside the tank, and a impellor pump thats inside. Everything you need comes in the Box

  • runeeln on January 31, 2012

    hi thanx for the video. i see on the comercial that you just have to change wather 2 times in a year if you have this purifier. what do you think about this?

    final question. is this an purifier and wather pump in one? or do you need a pump also f.eks (fluval)
