Fluval Filters – Fluval 305 & Fluval 405
Keeping an aquarium is easy when you have the power of a Fluval Canister Filter. The 305 model is suitable for aquariums up to 70 gallons and the 405 model is ideal for fish tanks up to 100 gallons. What makes Fluval Filters better than other traditional aquarium filters is that they use all three types of filtration, which are mechanical, biological and chemical. Reusable foam pads effectively trap waste and debris, and can be rejuvenated by rinsing them clean. They should be replaced every three to six months. Black Carbon provides chemical filtration to remove organics that cloud or stain your water. This gives your aquarium the desired crystal clear look. The carbon should be replaced every one to two months. Finally, ceramic media allows beneficial bacteria to colonize, which helps to break down harmful chemicals like ammonia and nitrite. This biomedia should be replaced once a year.
