This is an item that we arrange to ship directly from the manufacturer. We do this for a couple of reasons.
1. We don't want to pay to ship the item twice. Once from the manufacturer to us and then again to you.
2. Not stocking it also reduces our inventory, warehouse and other operating costs.
This results in a lower cost to us and allows us to pass those savings along to you. On the odd occasion
when the item is not available to ship in the usual one of two days we will let you know as soon as possible.
Why does it take so long to get this item?

Included Filter Media
Biological - sintered quartz bio-rings help establish a biological balance in your aquarium. They provide a macroporous surface for the cultivation of beneficial bacterial colonies.
Mechanical - a fine mechanical sponge traps the smallest particulates, while a more porous coarse sponge captures larger debris. The result is polished, crystal clear water.
Chemical - an optional activated carbon pad eliminates discoloration, odors, and other pollutants for a healthier and more attractive aquarium (carbon pad sold separately).
To guarantee unwavering performance, the Hydor Professional 450 employs a ceramic shaft motor which offers improved heat resistance and longevity. This space-saving filter also boasts a modest footprint, allowing it to fit comfortably under most cabinets. Finally, it features anti-skid stabilizers that keep it firmly in place, while also helping to dampen vibrations for silent operation. For quality assurance and peace of mind, the Professional 450 is UL listed and comes with a 2-year limited manufacturer's warranty.
Please note: For marine aquariums and heavier bio-loads, Hydor recommends that you select the next model up from the suggested aquarium size.
