Aquarium Pharmaceuticals® API FilStar Micro-Filtration Pad Information

Polishing you aquarium water is possible with the use of Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Filstar Micro-Filtration Pad from Pet Store. This pad contains fresh and upgraded canister media that is customized to fit the Filstar XP. The micro-filtration pad is made of tough meshed fibers that do not easily wear and tear even with strong currents of water passes through it.

The pad has minute, regulated holes that allow water to permeate without restriction but enables the pad to capture the dirt, discoloration, foul odors and other pollutants that make the water dirty and cloudy quickly.

The canister media immediately act on ammonia, nitrates and other harmful substances and neutralize them to non-toxic levels. Through the micro-filtration pad and the media’s mechanical and biological filtration actions, the water is filtered to become clean and fresh for the benefit of the aquatic inhabitants in the tank.

The Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Filstar Micro-Filtration Pad is ideal for super fine water filtration. The pad measures precisely at 6.6 inches in length, 6.5 inches in width, and 1.8 inches in height. It is ready to use and a great replacement pad for the Filstar XP pad. The pad should be replaced regularly especially when used in tanks that easily get dirty. With this micro-filtration pad, you will always have shiny and clear water in your aquarium.

Canister filter media designed to fit the FilStar XP. For ultra-fine filtration and polishing.

Micro-Filtration Pad:
  • Removes extremely fine waste, sediment, and particles from water
  • Helps clear cloudy water
  • "Polishes" water to help make it crystal clear
Directions for use in all RENA® FilStar Filters:
  • Place pad in last filtration compartment, above all other filter media.
  • Replace pad once a month or sooner if it becomes clogged or if filter flow diminishes.
