To ensure constant presence of beneficial bacteria, do not replace all filtration media at the same time.

FAQ

I change the carbon in my filter bi-weekly. Is this too often if I have a small fish load?

No, it is better (and easier) to prevent odors versus having to remove them once they've accumulated. Some fish are messy eaters, or are more prone to producing large amounts of waste, so prevention is key.

Does Fluval carbon filter media remove the liquid plant fertilizer I apply to my aquarium?

Carbon, especially when new, can remove some trace elements present in many liquid plant supplements. We recommend waiting at least a week or two after having changed the carbon before you apply a liquid plant supplement.

What material is Fluval Activated Carbon made from?

Fluval Carbon is made from bituminous coal, which is the best overall source material for carbon used for aquarium water filtration due to its varying pore structure and sizing.

    I bought in bulk

    I was totally unaware there were size differences & got these instead of the small ones my tank uses But being inventive I turned 3 of these into 9 for my little tank!! My mistake was a lucky thing!

    Best design

    By on

    I love this carbon pack! It is SO easy to change the media out with the basket design. I no longer have to take the entire filter apart to change 1 item. This still needs to be rinsed well as alot of black carbon dust is still present.

    Great Deal!

    Fluval is a great brand, and this is the best price I've seen anywhere for these refills. Got them to freshen up the Fluval canister filter I use on my 46-g turtle tank. :)
