Carbon filters help remove odors and discoloration from your aquarium water

For freshwater and marine aquariums

FluvalFluval Ultragrade Carbon is ideally suited as a fine water scrub and is best placed in the lowest or middle modules. By placing before any biologically specific media, it will strain and adsorb tiny particles, dissolved impurities and remove dyes, medications, and odors. Place the carbon in a filter bag or place a thin polyester padding over the grid to prevent falling through as Ultragrade Carbon is smaller than the Fluval Module bottom grid. Change carbon monthly. Rinse before use.

More Info
Directions: Rinse thoroughly before use to remove fine dust due to handling. Place directly into chamber or nylon filter bag. When using in Fluval Canister Filters, Carbon must be in nylon filter bag.

Maintenance: Monthly change is recommended. Do not replace all filter media simultaneously. Stagger media replacement to ensure constant bacterial populations.

Ratings & Reviews
Mechanical filtration can greatly improve the health of most aquariums, and is also important for the efficiency of your biological filtration. The process is simple: mechanical media strains solid debris.
Biological filtration is the action of bacteria breaking down dangerous ammonia, converting it to nitrite, and then converting nitrite to less toxic nitrate. This article discusses how the process works.
While most aquarists agree biological filtration is imperative for your aquarium's health, not all agree that mechanical and chemical filtration is absolutely necessary.
