Filter Media

The FiltoSmart series uses filter foams of differing pore densities and filter media for optimal water quality and clarity. Each filter has its own replacement filter foam set. FiltoSmart 100-300 models use ceramic filter media and FiltoSmart 200-300 models also uses carbon filter media. Timing to replace the filter media varies upon aquarium size, number of fish and plants, and a decline in filter performance. It is best to only replace the ceramic filter media when you do a complete tank restart as to not disturb the beneficial biological load.
