Description

Ensure your Fluval G filter is operating at its best with Fluval's G3 Mechanical Fine Pre-Filter Cartridge. There are three types of filtration that help keep your water healthy—mechanical, chemical and biological. This cartridge is designed to trap debris 75 um (micron) or larger for optimum mechanical filtration. It works to keep debris trapped until the cartridge is rinsed. It's safe to use daily with marine aquariums and occasionally with freshwater aquariums. To keep your water clean and clear, be sure to clean the Fluval cartridge regularly.

Key Benefits
  • Designed for daily use in marine aquariums where suspended debris is minimal.
  • Helps improve chemical and biological filtration efficiency by contributing to less waste accumulation.
  • Fine mesh traps debris 75 micron or larger for unparalleled mechanical filtering results.
  • No by-pass design captures and traps debris between each pleat until cartridge is removed and rinsed.
  • Can also be used as a polishing cartridge for standard or freshwater aquariums.

    Top quality Fluval filter

    By LMECHANICO on Feb 7, 2021

    This is a "fine" filter cartridge for your G3 unit and leaves the water clear! For my application in a 60 gallon freshwater tank, it becomes restricted sooner than the standard filter cartridge. This will trigger "LOW FLOW" on the display. It can be cleaned and reused. Bottom line, it needs to be replaced every 2-3 weeks.

    Perfect clear water

    By Halfpint63 on Jul 14, 2018 top1000Contributor

    I love how clean and clear the water in my Cichlid Tank is with this Fine Pre-Filter as they're Notoriously messy eaters! Having extra Filters makes changing out Super Fast on the Fluval G3 Canister Filter. I run this Filter especially after Water Changes to clean and clear up the water Fast and/or alternate it with the regular Pre-Filter Cartridge to keep and maintain the crystal clear water!

    Really Good water polishing filter

    By GhostChaser on May 4, 2018

    I have a G3 power filter and it has been going strong now for over 5 years. This is the filter I run 24/7, it takes out the fine dirt and keeps the water crystal clear, but it does need to be cleaned every week or if you have a real dirty tank, then every couple of days. It is easy to clean. I soak mine in hot water and a small amount of Chlorine Bleach. It takes about an hour, then I soak it in clean warm water with some water conditioner to neutralize the bleach and put it back in the tank. I have not replaced my filter in the 5 years that I have owned the G3. They do slowly wear out, but it is nice to have two of them as one is being cleaned you can install the other to keep the filter running I have a G3 power filter and it has been going strong now for over 5 years.
