The EHEIM professionel 3 stands for high quality, strong performance, exemplary energy efficiency and wonderfully quiet running. The large prefilter and the special safety hose adapter are just some of the benefits of this model. The filter is suitable for large aquariums up to 1200 l. The pumping power of the filter is adjustable. The filter baskets are easily removable and can be filled individually. It is the first filter with a triple hose adapter for perfect water circulation in large aquariums. The flow indicator on the filter informs when the filter should be cleaned. Transport rollers make the filter manoeuvrable by slight tilting.

The EHEIM professional 3 is equipped with all essential installation accessories and, therefore, ready to connect. The suitable complete EHEIM Media Set has to be purchased separately and is not included in the scope of delivery.

The model EHEIM professionel 3 1200 XLT additionally has an integrated heater, which enables precise temperature control in the range of 18-34 °C. Therefore, no additional device needs to be installed in the aquarium. The filter is only suitable for freshwater aquaria.
