Product Features

Higher Flow Rates

Aqueon filters have higher flow rates than the competition to ensure proper turnover for cleaner water and higher dissolved oxygen content, making fish healthier and more active.

Superior Biological Filtration

The patented biological grid has a large surface area to support more of the beneficial bacteria that eliminates ammonia and nitrates. A second wet/dry grid provides further biological filtration and oxygenation as the water returns to the aquarium.

Internal Pump Design

Since the filter pump is submersed in the aquarium, there is no need for priming at setup or when restarting the filter after cleaning or power interruptions. An internal pump also allows for virtually silent operation, continuous flow raters, less chance for leaks, and a much thinner profile.

Four Stage Advanced Filtration System

Stage 1: Dense floss removes particles and debris.

Stage 2: Activated carbon removes toxins, odors and discoloration.

Stage 3: Patented Bio-Holster removes toxic ammonia and nitrites.

Stage 4: Diffuser grid removes additional toxins while adding oxygen for more active fish. It also reduces splashing makes the return exceptionally quiet.

Way Better Than Buying At The Big Box Store Sure, these filters perform great, they always have. I’m not really an aquarium expert but the catch a lot of goo, and seem to work well for the recommended month long lifetime.The real takeaway is that the local big box pet store charges FIVE TIMES AS MUCH for this same box of filters as Amazon. Nuts to that. Buy your filters here.

effective filter cartridge Having to ordering replacement filters regularly is the main reason I dislike this filter setup. At least this 6pack is much cheaper than buying at the local pet store and shipping is quick. These are great if you are stuck using this filter, the filter pads themselves work fine and keep the water clean.Try rinsing off the filter pad in old aquarium water when you do a water change to prolong the life of the cartridge. I have the 2.5 and 5 gallon minibow aquariums, and find that rinsing prolongs the usability of the filter cartridge 2-3 times longer. If the aquarium starts to get that “fishy” smell that means the activated carbon in the filter has been depleted and the cartridge is due to be replaced.
