Eheim Filter Media Set for Professional 3E filters 2076/2078

Eheim complete replacement filter media set designed for:

  • EHEIM Professional 3e 2076 External Canister Filter
  • EHEIM Professional 3e 2078 External Canister Filter

The EHEIM filter media is highly efficient, developed in our own laboratory, produced from the only the best raw materials, continuously checked and guaranteed free from pollutants.

Eheim fine white wool and coarse blue filter pads for mechanical and biological filtration

The porous material becomes evenly soaked with water and traps large and small dirt particles. After a short start-up period purification bacteria, which provide intensive biological decomposition of harmful substances, colonise the specially structured foam.

The fine and coarse filter pads are reusable many times over. To clean them simply rinse and squeeze out, so that the bacteria cultures are not completely destroyed.

  • Porous material traps large and small dirt particles
  • Good colonisation conditions for bacteria cultures
  • Reusable several times over
  • Reusable
  • To clean just rinse and squeeze out

4 Litres EHEIM Mech Pro - Mechanical Filter Media

The spiral shape ensures the trapping of even small dirt particles. The high quality, completely water-neutral plastic allows easy and residue free cleaning. Yet the surface structure allows the colonisation of cleaning bacteria and therefore also provides a biological cleaning process.

  • Prefilter material for small dirt particles
  • Additional effect: biological water conditioning
  • Filter medium from water-neutral plastic
  • Reusable
  • Easy to clean
  • Suitable for fresh and marine water

2 Litres EHEIM Substrat Pro - Biological Filter Media

Optimised bio-filter medium with perfect volume usage, long intervals between cleaning and top decomposition performance.

SUBSTRATpro consists of pearl-shaped sintered glass. The spherical shape gives a high bulk density. Thus the whole of the volume in the filter (filter baskets or modules) can be utilised. Also the optimum surface of the beads provides intensive colonisation of the important purification bacteria.

Due to the high number of bacteria, peak nitrite loads are more easily reduced and the maintenance intervals of the filter material are longer.

  • Optimised bio-filter medium made from sintered glass
  • High bulk density due to spherical shape (beads)
  • Very dense colonisation of bacteria
  • Longer intervals between cleaning
  • Better reduction of nitrite loads
  • Reusable (rinse carefully to clean)
  • Suitable for fresh and marine water

2L x Eheim Biomech - Mechanical/Biological Filter Media

bioMECH has been cleverly designed: dirt-trapping pockets capture and retain large and small dirt particles. At the same time the subtely designed pore structure provides colonisation for the purification bacteria and thus ensures reliable biological decomposition.

The material is pH-neutral and does not contain water hardeners.

  • Specially designed filter medium for simultaneous mechanical and biological water purification
  • The material is pH-neutral and without water hardeners
  • Filter medium from water-neutral plastiReusable (wash out carefully, in order not to destroy the bacteria cultures)c
  • Suitable for fresh and marine water

Aquarium Kingdom Tips

When cleaning your filter always use water from the aquarium, not tap water. Never clean or change all the filter media together in one operation (and never clean too rigorously). The bacteria cultures must not be completely destroyed, otherwise re-colonisation will be disrupted.
