Comprising of all necessary filtration elements, the Complete Filter Media Kit for Ocellaris 1400 / 1400UV has everything you need to maintain your canister filter system in tip top condition and includes 2 x Blue Sponge Pads, 2 x White Wool Pads, 2 x Black Sponge Pads and BioNood 600g. If changing filter media in an established external filter, change filtration items about one week apart to allow for the recolonisation of beneficial nitrifying bacteria on to the new filter media elements. If you are setting up a new external filter, this Complete Filter Kit contains all the items you need in one handy pack. For second hand external filters we'd recommend discarding any remaining filter sponges, pads and media and starting with fresh ones that can get to work straight away as your filter matures.
Maintaining your filter
Fortunately maintenance of all Aqua One Aquis and Advance canister filters is very easy and changing filter pads along with the filter media can be done quickly and with the minimum of fuss. Both the blue and black sponge pad can be rinsed in a little aquarium water and reused whilst the white wool pads should be replaced every 4 to 6 weeks. It may become necessary to renew the blue and black sponges as the cell structure starts to deteriorate, typically every 12 months or so. The Bio Noodles should be rinsed in aquarium water and a few of the dirtiest noodles replaced every filter change.
