Cut to Size Carbo Pad from Aqua One - (10448)
Aqua One's Cut to Size Carbo Pad is a neat way to bring the benefit of activated carbon to your aquarium filter setup and is designed to remove impurities and discolouration from aquarium water. As the name suggests, the Carbo Pad is a single sheet of impregnated foam that you cut to size yourself, to fit your particular application. The Carbo Pad is much less messy than using granular activated carbon and is also extremely good value as you'll normally get quite a number of uses out of just one sheet.
Size: 25.4cm X 45.7cm
Change every 4 weeks
Cut to size pads are really economical in use and there's an ever growing range of them bringing chemical, biological and physical filtration to your aquarium setup. Many fishkeepers find that Cut to Size filter pads are much less messy than having to deal with loose filter media as well as easier to use in many filter set ups.
Under normal circumstances a Cut to Size Filter Pad will last a full 4 weeks in your aquarium setup, but this could vary slightly depending on your setup. There's nothing quite like adding fresh filter media to your filter system to improve water quality, but as ever if you have an established setup, don't change all the filter media at once. Rather, change filter media items one week apart to allow for colonisation of beneficial bacteria onto the new media elements.
