Hagen Fluval External Canister Filter Media

Hagen Fluval Polishing Pad, Fine Hagen Fluval Polishing Pads, Fine 

Fluval Water Polishing Pads are uniquely designed to fit Fluval Canister Filters. These extra thick micro-fine polyester pads effectively trap micro particles and debris as water passes through. Fluval Water Polishing Pads are ideally used when cloudy water occurs or after tank maintenance to provide crystal clear aquarium water. For freshwater and marine environments.


Hagen Fluval Carbon Hagen Fluval Carbon

Fluval Activated Carbon provides many benefits in both fresh and marine water. The high quality carbon provides a large porous area to trap minute particles. Besides providing a small sieve for mechanical trapping of organic wastes, carbon also removes liquid wastes from water. These include urine, dyes or impurities in solution. This action provides sparkling clear water in the aquarium. The large internal surface area also provides numerous points for important bacterial colonies to form and thrive. Carbon should always be removed during medication. It has also been recently noted that carbon will adsorb a large percentage of many of the nutrients in plant fertilizer products. As such, it should be used carefully when keeping live plants. Carbon loses its activity without outward sign. In general, carbon should be replaced on a monthly basis to ensure that active adsorption is maintained.


Hagen Fluval Biomax Ceramic Rings Hagen Fluval Biomax Ceramic Rings

Fluval BioMax is suitable for both fresh and marine aquariums. When used in a center or top media basket, Fluval BioMax is the ideal host material for large populations of beneficial bacteria. The ring size and shape provide an excellent strainer for medium and large particulate wastes when used in the middle media basket. The biological activity is still noticeable when used in lower levels, but the rings will clog much more rapidly than when they are used higher in the filter. Bacterial activity and growth will gradually clog the internal pores that make it such a fantastic biological substrate. BioMax should be replaced every six months, but only half should be replenished at one time to allow proper seeding from older media to new.

Biomax rings are unique, inert ceramic rings that promote powerful bacterial growth both internally and externally. Each ring is very porous, with holes that are perfectly sized to host beneficial bacteria. The massive internal and external surface areas allow huge colonies of beneficial bacteria to grow, making Fluval Biomax an ideal media for biological removal of both ammonia and nitrite concentrations in the aquarium.


Hagen Fluval Peat Fiber Hagen Fluval Peat Fiber

Fluval Peat Fiber is a select fibrous peat ideal for use in freshwater aquariums. This safe, natural filter media provides optimal water conditions for many species of fish originating from specific tropical environments. Many species of fish can benefit from the compounds found in Fluval Peat Fiber. Examples include species of South American Cichlids (Angelfish, Discus, Apistogramma etc.), Corydoras Catfish, Tetras, Gouramis and Barbs. Fluval Peat Fiber will gradually release beneficial elements and will contribute to vibrant colors, enhance breeding success, and give superior conditions for a variety of fish species that thrive in soft acidic water. It is recommended to verify the desired pH and KH levels by testing with Nutrafin pH and KH test kits on a regular basis. Fluval Peat Fiber will gradually reduce pH and KH levels. The recommended KH range is 50 to 120 mg/L (approx. 3 to 7 dKH to support safe, stable pH levels) for proper maintenance of certain species of fish. Use Nutrafin pH Stabilizer for superior results in maintaining an optimal KH value. The replacement of Fluval Peat Fiber media is determined by testing and the diminishing effect it has on pH and KH levels. Fluval Peat Fiber should be placed in the middle media basket of canister filter systems to avoid strands from entering the impeller chamber.

Fluval Peat fibres soften, darken and acidify aquarium water for fish. they produce the proper water conditions needed for spawning. Peat is often used to safely reduce hardness or high alkalinity found in some water supplies to acceptable levels for fish. It is used generally in fresh water and can help live plants thrive in the aquarium.


Hagen Fluval Peat Granules Hagen Fluval Peat Granules

Fluval Peat Granular is a select granular peat ideal for use in freshwater aquariums. This concentrated, safe, natural filter media provides optimal water conditions for many species of fish originating from specific tropical environments. Many species of fish can benefit from the compounds found in Fluval Peat Granular. Examples include species of South American Cichlids (Angelfish, Discus, Apistogramma etc.), Corydoras Catfish, Tetras, Gouramis and Barbs. Fluval Peat Granular releases beneficial elements and will contribute to vibrant colors, enhanced breeding success, and superior conditions for a variety of fish species that thrive in soft acidic water. It is recommended to verify the desired pH and KH levels by testing with Nutrafin pH and KH test kits on a regular basis. Fluval Peat Granular is a concentrated filter media and will initially reduce pH and KH levels at a quicker rate than fibrous peat. The recommended KH range is 50 to 120 mg/L (approx. 3 to 7 dKH to support safe, stable pH levels) for proper maintenance of certain species of fish. Use Nutrafin pH Stabilizer for superior results in maintaining an optimal KH value. The replacement of Fluval Peat Granular media is determined by testing and the diminishing effect it has on pH and KH levels.

Fluval Peat Granular offers a highly effective, natural method to soften water and achieve proper pH values for many tropical fish. Use to control, manipulate and satisfy the breeding requirements of many softer water, lower pH loving, ornamental tropical fish and is known to promote luxurious live plant growth.


Hagen Fluval Pre-Filter Media Hagen Fluval Pre-Filter Media

Fluval Pre-Filter consists of inert, solid ceramic rings used to trap large and medium solid particles before they clog the finer sieves of the media baskets above. The media forces water into many complex paths as it moves through this layer. This further increases its mechanical and biological activity and expands the actual contacted filter area. An additional benefit, it supports large populations of bacteria for proper biological action on ammonia and nitrite. This reduces the need for frequent changes of the active filter media. Pre-Filter is permanent, and requires only occasional rinsing. This media can be used in fresh and marine environments without difficulty.


Hagen Fluval Ammonia Remover Hagen Fluval Ammonia Remover

Ammonia Remover removes ammonia before it can harm fish. An effective addition to normal filter media, it reduces unacceptable levels of ammonia. In chloramine treated water, it helps remove excess ammonia created when the chloramine bond is broken to release free ammonia. Ammonia Remover should be used exclusively in freshwater as its ionic functions release captured ammonia in brackish and saltwater. Ammonia Remover does not show any physical change as it loses its activity, which is determined by the amounts of ammonia it contacts. Ammonia Remover should not be left in the filter longer than a month.


Hagen Fluval Zeo-Carb Hagen Fluval Zeo-Carb

Zeo-Carb combines UltraGrade Carbon with Ammonia Remover to protect the aquarium from build-ups of both ammonia and liquified wastes, dyes and medications. The ammonia remover will also help remove the ammonia released when the chloramine bond in some municipal water supplies must be broken. The purity of the carbon prolongs active life and releases no phosphates into the water. Zeo-Carb should be replaced at least every month, more often if the aquarium is heavily loaded to ensure that the medias remain active and useful. For freshwater use only


Hagen Fluval Lab Series Phosphate Remover Hagen Fluval Lab Series Phosphate Remover

Phosphate Remover rapidly adsorbs large quantities of phosphate, silicate and dissolved organics without leaching adsorbed substances. It removed up to 20 mg/L (ppm) of phosphate per 50 US gal. (189L). Maintaining low levels of phosphate will result in cleaner, healthier aquarium water while allowing corals to efficiently absorb the calcium they require to grow and reproduce. Phosphate Remover contains Ferric Oxide, an iron-based phosphate binder that can be used as a permanent solution. Will not affect pH or Hardness. For use in fresh and saltwater aquariums.
