Description

The AquaClear Activated Carbon Filter Insert is a replacement filter insert that uses the power of activated carbon to help maintain a clean freshwater or saltwater tank. The premium research-grade carbon creates a large surface area that absorbs impurities and removes odors and discoloration for a clear aquarium. It’s designed as part of the AquaClear system that provides three types of filtration: mechanical, chemical and biological. In this unique system, only one component is changed at a time to protect the beneficial bacteria that’s usually thrown out with cartridge filtration systems. The AquaClear Activated Carbon Filter Insert is an alternative chemical stage replacement that improves water clarity for a healthy, stress-free environment for your fish.

    Great Customer Service

    By coolgrandma on Sep 3, 2020

    I usually order my product from a local company but lately everything seems to be out of stock. I took a chance on Chewy to see what they had for aquariums and was very surprised to see they had my product in stock and at an even lower price than I pay from the other business. I ordered right away and got my order the following day without having to pay any additional fee for shipping. Chewy will have my business in the future.

    Unfortunately upon putting it into my filter I realized that I bought the wrong size.

    Love this product!

    By Ladyvirgo on Jul 23, 2019

    Aquaclear has one of the best filters hands down, and I love this product! My tanks are crystal clear & I would never use anything else. I use to love buying it here, it's sad Chewy has almost doubled the price from what they used to sell it. It's the same price as Petsmart now! It's a sad day when you can go to your local store & get a better deal.

    Great Carbon packs

    By Customer45 on Jul 4, 2019

    I use this in all my filters. Never had issue. Just make sure to wash in purified water or fish tank water. If you place in your filter without doing so your tank will get black as Cole. But good product

    HAPPY FISHIES

    These are the only filter inserts we use in our 3 aquariums. Easy to change, effectively keep water crystal clear.
