The AquaClear Foam Filter Insert is a replacement filter insert that traps particles and debris to help maintain a clean freshwater or saltwater tank. The foam filter insert fits perfectly into the filter to prevent bypass. It also helps prevent particulate waste from clogging other media in the filter. It’s designed as part of the AquaClear system that provides three types of filtration: mechanical, chemical and biological. Although the AquaClear Foam Filter Insert provides mostly mechanical filtration, it also provides a type of biological filtration as well. The porous surface allows friendly bacteria to grow, which is essential in the removal of toxic ammonia and nitrate.
For use in freshwater or saltwater tanks

This is a good filter sponge. I use it as mechanical filtration in my Marina filter and it was easy to cut it to the right size I needed.

This is a great replacement filter for my Aqua Clear 110 aquarium pump. It arrived quickly, was exactly what I ordered! I purchased a few more from Chewy.com - these are great and I am happy. :)
OEM parts, fit as they should

Double sponge isn't a bad plan, so ordering a second one is my plan. Take your sponge and squeeze it in aquarium water as you're doing a water change, so you get it cleaned out and don't put chemicals in the tapwater in the sponge ;) pull your water out in your bucket, and squeeze that sponge in there 4 or 5 times, and then just stick it in!
