Physical Filtration and Biochemical Filtration

The ribbing design of high-quality biochemical cotton can effectively increase the sponge surface area, which will better absorb feces, debris, and residues in water.

Bio ceramic media balls help to improve the filtering effect by quickly purifying the water quality. Meanwhile, the ceramic media balls are conducive to a stable pH and a beneficial cultivation environment.

The water outlet is 360 degrees rotatable with 2 strong suction cups. The retractable outlet pipe enables you to either put the outlet above water surface or under water.

The outlet height range of the small size filter is from 9.4 inches to 13.9 inches.

The outlet height range of the medium size filter is from 11.6 inches to 16.9 inches.

If you like other filter media, you can also consider replacing it.
