As an alternative, however, the JBL CristalProfi e902 can also be installed. This filter is an external filter and therefore brings some advantages. In the aquarium itself no filter disturbs the appearance. Only the inlet and outlet pipes are visible. However, these can be completely covered with stones or roots, so that nothing is visible. In addition, this filter is also quiet, so that use in the bedroom or in another quiet room is possible.

This is particularly convincing in that it is completely invisible. It is installed between the external filter and the inflow hose. Through this heater it is possible to increase the water temperature to above room temperature. This is necessary for the fish to feel comfortable in the tank.
