AQUAEL OXYBOOST PLUS
AQUAEL OXYBOOST PLUS aerators / membrane pumps continue the 30-year tradition of the production of membrane aerators by Aquael.Compared to other competing devices, they are distinguished by modern design, excellent workmanship, and high productivity.
The OXYBOOST PLUS line of aerators includes four models: AP 100 PLUS, APR 150 PLUS, AP 200 PLUS, and APR 300 PLUS. The numbers correspond to the maximum performance of the respective device, expressed as liters of air that can be pumped through it in one hour. The 100 and 150 models have one outlet, and the 200 and 300 models have two outlets. The APR models provide for smooth performance adjustment by means of a handy dial located in the upper part of the device body.
The body of the new aerator is characterized by sleek black-and-white design. Thanks to the rounded disk-like shape, the device is easy to keep clean.
The OXYBOOST PLUS aerators are manufactured with great care, using modern production technologies. It is worth emphasising that, unlike most membrane aerators on the market, they are produced in the European Union, since the entire production cycle is carried out at the AQUAEL factory in the Polish town of Suwałki. This means that accessories like membranes or piston units are always in stock.
Despite their high performance, the OXYBOOST PLUS membrane pumps consume little power (2.2-2.5 W). They are ideally suited for continuous operation as aerating devices (we recommend to use them together with the AQUAEL AIR LIGHTS illuminated nozzles for an outstanding ornamental effect) or as the drives of conventional sponge filters and undergravel filters. You can even use them in marine aquariums as the drives of simple tube skimmers.
AQUAEL TURBO FILTER is designed for the cleaning and aeration of aquarium water. This quiet and energy-efficient filter provides double (mechanical and biological) filtration out of the box. It is compatible with any biological or chemical filter cartridges offered by AQUAEL, such as BioCeraMAX Pro 600, BioCeraMAX Pro 1200, BioCeraMAX Pro 1600, ZeoMAX PLUS, CarboMAX PLUS, NitroMAX PRO, PhosMAX BASIC, and PhosMAX PRO.
The sealed rotor chamber ensures high efficiency at a relatively low level of power consumption. All the AQUAEL TURBO FILTER models are equipped with special shock-absorbing suction cups to dampen vibrations that may be carried to the glass and to muffle the operation of the device.
The larger models, TURBO FILTER 1000, 1500, and 2000, are equipped with a ceramic rotor axis for even quieter operation and enhanced durability.
Thanks to the special design of AQUAEL TURBO internal filters, they are easily expandable. The filter media containers can be filled with any filter medium, as required.
The starter kit includes:
a container for loose filter media with a capacity of 250 ml in the TURBO FILTER 500 model and 625 ml in the TURBO FILTER 1000, 1500, and 2000 models,
one BioCeraMAX Pro 600 cartridge for biological filtration,
one sponge of carefully selected density to ensure high filtering parameters for as long as possible
TURBO filters are available in three installation configurations: sponge only, container only, container plus a sponge. Additional containers for filter media can be bought separately. You can easily join them in columns thanks to a specially designed connection system. In this way, the filter can be transformed into a customised device with unique filtration parameters, carefully tailored to individual needs.
AQUAEL FAN internal filter is designed for the cleaning and aeration of aquariums water. Thanks to the carefully selected sponge on a perforated arbour, the filter is dirt-resistant and does not require frequent cleaning. The protective plastic container intercepts coarse pollutants, which ensures the long-lasting efficient filtration of aquarium water.
FAN internal filter is easy to install and operate. The specially designed filter media chamber prevents water from flowing out of the filter and into the fish tank during water changes or when the filter is removed from the aquarium e.g. in order to wash the sponge.
The sealed rotor chamber ensures quiet operation and high performance at a relatively low level of power consumption.
In addition, the MICRO model of AQUAEL FAN filters can operate in very shallow water (as little as 2 inches deep) which makes it ideal even for the smallest of aquaterrariums.
Uniquely to FAN internal filters, performance can be conveniently adjusted without the need to insert hands into the water, since the dome with an ergonomic control dial can be placed above the water surface.
The direction of water outflow can be adjusted by up to 75°.
VERSAMAX is an external hang-on filter designed for the filtration and aeration of water in regular-sized and nano-aquariums. Thanks to its high throughput capacity, the filter guarantees intensive filtration of aquarium water, while requiring very little space. The filter is very quiet and easy to use. VERSAMAX filters can be used in water tanks with the capacity of 50 to 300 liters.
Components of the standard package
Each package includes a filter lid, a flow-through unit, and a container for filter media with a sponge cartridge. The VERSAMAX filter is completely watertight, because the entire container is made of one piece.
Mode of functioning
Hang the filter on an aquarium wall so that the suction tube is inside the tank, whereas the body of the pump – on the outside. At the start-up, fill the filter container with water and then plug the connection cable into the mains. Shortly after the activation, a properly assembled filter will suck the air out of the suction system and start pumping water from the aquarium. The pumping capacity can be adjusted within a wide range by means of a dial located on the top of the flow-through unit.
The pump draws water from the lower part of the water tank, next the water flows through the filter cartridges, and finally it is released back into the aquarium. The filtration baskets are designed to facilitate cartridge replacement.
Filter throughput can be adjusted using the dial located on the top of the flow-through unit. The angle of inclination of the filter is also adjustable.
The standard set of cartridges for the VERSAMAX filter includes a sponge cartridge made of special phenol-free sponge. It constitutes a particularly favourable substrate for the growth of bacterial cultures employed to remove organic impurities from the water. In this way, effective mechanical filtration is supplemented with excellent biological filtration.
Filter cartridges can be freely combined or replaced with other filter media for biological or chemical filtration. For example, you can combine cartridges for biological filtration with a sponge for mechanical filtration. Make sure that individual media are arranged in equal layers in both parts of the filter baskets.
ULTRAMAX CANISTER FILTER
ULTRAMAX – innovative, technologically advanced canister filters employing patented solutions. They are extraordinarily user-friendly and can be used in virtually any tank to purify water and maintain the required water parameters. They can be used in freshwater and marine aquariums. These are their main advantages:
Unprecedented performance – the ULTRAMAX filters boast a high water flow rate (max. 1000 up to 2000 l/h) and can efficiently operate even in very large tanks (up to 700 l). In addition, being very capacious, they can hold large quantities of filter media. Filter media are placed in handy ergonomic baskets with a capacity of 1.9 l each (depending on the model, the number of baskets is 3 to 5). This guarantees extremely efficient mechanical and biological filtration. The filters are supplied with a complete set of filter media carefully selected to meet the needs of a typical aquarium.
Inbuilt pre-filter – the first of its kind in the market There is a big sponge pre-filter built into the lid of each ULTRAMAX filter (with a capacity of ca. 0.6 l). It is designed to capture course mechanical impurities before they can get inside the filter. In this way, the pre-filter protects the device from clogging, which reduces the required frequency of cleaning to a minimum. Instead, it is sufficient to regularly wash the pre-filter sponge in tap water. This only takes a few minutes and does not require disconnecting the filter from the power supply or taking it out of the aquarium stand.
Exceptionally quiet operation: the excellent design of the pump rotor and the rotor chamber – grounded in more than thirty years of experience of AQUAEL’S engineering team – and the use of a ceramic rotor shaft result in virtually noiseless operation. For this reason, the filter can be freely used in any room, even in a bedroom.
Exceptionally low power consumption – AQUAEL cares about the natural environment and helps its customers save money. That is why the innovative ULTRAMAX filters consume very little energy, which means lower electricity bills for aquarium keepers. The ULTRAMAX 2000 model only consumes 24 W per hour!
Safety of operation – the water inlets and outlets in the ULTRAMAX filters are equipped with dual ball-valves that are extremely reliable. The valves prevent even the smallest water leaks and allow the hoses to be easily and quickly disconnected from the filter when it has to undergo cleaning and maintenance.
The ULTRAMAX product line includes three filter models (ULTRAMAX 1000, 1500, and 2000) with the throughput capacity of 1000 up to 2000 l/h.

ULTRA HEATER – The first smart aquarium heaters.
New in 2020 – Smart Heating System*. A microprocessor controller selects the lowest heating power necessary for maintaining the set water temperature in the aquarium. When necessary, the microprocessor increases or decreases the power to maintain the set temperature. Using the Smart Heating System allows for lower temperature amplitude of aquarium water thanks to the more stable operation of the device. In addition, the SHS positively affects the durability of the heating element and the heater’s lifespan.
The heater is programmed using a very convenient ONE-TOUCH system featuring a single button and an LED ring indicating current and set temperatures.
The electronic thermostat offers unique precision of +/-0.25°C, maintaining constant temperature in the aquarium, ensuring thermal comfort for even the most sensitive aquarium species.
Temperature control range from 20 do 33°C makes it possible to use the heater in the treatment of many fish diseases, including the so-called “fish smallpox”.
ULTRA HEATER features also a built-in warning system in case of water overheating in hot weather. Shatterproof plastic housing makes the ULTRA HEATER water heaters perfect for tanks with large, strong fish and even with water turtles. The devices are completely safe and will not cause burns to even such sensitive fish as catfish and rays.
The ULTRA HEATER range encompasses 6 models ranging from 25 to 200 W, and are available in 3 lengths, which allows precise adjustment to aquarium size.
ULTRA HEATER devices are the most advanced products on the market intended for heating water in aquariums.

An automatic heater for very large freshwater and marine aquariums. The plastic housing protects the heater from breaking and the inhabitants of the tank from getting scalded. Recommended for aquariums in which large and strong fish are kept.
Our Flow Heater is the first one featuring a Smart Heating System (SHS) – a smart power adjustment technology. The microprocessor adjusts the heating power to maintain the desired temperature in the aquarium. This translates into the smooth operation of the heater – without temperature surges in the aquarium and, by the same token, without stressing its inhabitants. With the electronic thermostat, the LED display shows not only the programmed but also the current water temperature. Electronic temperature sensors protect the aquarium from overheating and automatically switch off the device in no flow conditions. As the device is located on the outlet hose of the external filter, heated water is evenly distributed in the tank. The heater is mounted outside of the aquarium, so it does not take up space inside the tank and gives more freedom in terms of the interior arrangement.

This is a unique filter cartridge , made of high quality active carbon, which has excellent absorption properties. Placed in the filter, it captures water and binds dissolved in it chemical substances. It neutralizes heavy metal ions and chlorine. It absorbs the remains of medicines and other chemical preparations. It also perfectly removes various discolorations (eg caused by wood placed in the aquarium). It has the form of durable, dust-free granules thanks to the carefully developed dust removal technology.
How does CarboMAX Plus work?
The activated carbon used for the production of CarboMAX Plus has excellent absorption properties, thanks to which it absorbs toxic substances dissolved in it. It neutralizes heavy metal ions and chlorine present in tap water. Removes coloring substances from the water, restoring crystalline purity. It absorbs the remains of medicines and other chemical preparations.
Where and when does CarboMAX Plus work?
CarboMAX Plus is perfect as a filter bed in canister filters, overflow filters, internal filters with chambers for loose powders (eg TURBOFILTER), as well as in sumps and filter chimneys.
CarboMAX Plus should be used in newly established aquariums to improve the quality and transparency of fresh aquarium water. One pack of CarboMAX Plus contains two bags of 0.5 l capacity. One CarboMAX Plus bag is recommended for a 150 l tank. CarboMAX Plus is especially recommended for exhibition tanks, where we want to achieve the right decorative effect in the shortest possible time. It is also used in the case of discoloration of aquarium water and after finishing the treatment of fish using chemical preparations.
How should I use CarboMAX Plus?
CarboMAX Plus is immediately ready for use and does not require rinsing or any other additional activities. The contents of the packaging should be placed in the filter basket or in the filtration chamber. In order to ensure optimum results, it is recommended to place the CarboMAX Plus cartridge behind the mechanical filtration inserts and behind the biological filtration cartridges.
CarboMAX Plus is recommended for AQUAEL filters: UNIMAX, MIDIKANI 800, MINIKANI 80, MINIKANI 120, ASAP, TURBO and VERSAMAX.
How long does CarboMAX Plus work?
The operation of the CarboMAX Plus cartridge (sorption) causes it to gradually fill and wear. In order to maintain optimal filtration properties, it should be replaced at least every 4 weeks.
Sponge cartridges for AQUAEL filters made of carefully selected sponge saturated with phosphate absorbent. The cartridge efficiently absorbs phosphates from the water. It is absolutely safe for fish and aquarium invertebrates as well as for plants.
It works selectively without capturing useful compounds from the water, such as micronutrients and vitamins. It does not release any toxic substances into the water. Over time it becomes gradually worn out. To maintain its continuity, it is recommended to replace it at least once every four weeks.
AQUAEL MINI UV is a unique device. It has the form of a short sleeve that is installed on the outlet of the filter. Four energy efficient UV emitting LEDs are located in its interior, effectively sterilizing the water flowing out of the filter. It is adapted for cooperation with all lines of internal AQUAEL filters (FAN, UNIFILTER, TURBOFILTER, PAT MINI). It perfectly removes algae from the water preventing it from greening. It kills pathogenic bacteria protecting the fish from diseases. It also destroys protozoa that cause water clouding.
The efficiency of UV LED was already tested in the UNIFILTER UV POWER filters and UNI UV modules for the UNIFILTER filters. What is more, it is easy to install and does not require additional maintenance. As it is powered independently it can be turned on and off at any time. Because of the size, the sterilizer does not blemish the inside of the tank and it can be also used in very small aquariums such as e.g. AQUAEL SHRIMP SETS used for keeping shrimps.
