HMF with 1200l / h throughput, which makes a three-fold circulation of the net volume per hour.
Pore size of the mat: 20ppi
2 bags (Neylonstrümpfe) zeolite inside hanging
additional flow pump 2000l / h Why filtering an HMF?
I wanted a both effective as well as cost of power consumption filtering my aquarium.
Many are indeed of the opinion that especially Malawi and Lake Tanganyika-Aqua's not good enough purified over a hamburger mat filter due to higher food gift and too many in the water suspended solids are included and it is not really clear, but this I can not confirm.
In the beginning it is true that the proportion of particulate matter is a little higher especially after feeding, but if the filter is retracted properly, this is no longer the case.
It has been my first experience in a South Basin, I've never had in the previous period such stable and good water values. Therefore I decided on the structure of this basin to the HMF and can only draw a positive conclusion.
The water levels are also here super stable, the suspended solids is virtually non-existent, because I go so far as to predict less than with an external filter, perhaps the greater if one operates the HMF with an airlift. But that eludes my knowledge because I have no experience with it. Only the space required in the pool has to serve as a negative thing.
But this is more likely in the Corner design as a problem with me than with the variant on the side windows.
In addition, one can also put behind heating which in turn has an optical advantage.
I run the HMF with a garden pond pump consumption 15 Watt, if I want to achieve a comparable effective filtering with an external filter, I'm min. twice as high in consumption.
