Aquarium Pharmaceuticals FilStar Super Activated Carbon Information



Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Filstar Activated Carbon from Pet Store is used in aquarium filters as a filtering media. Activated carbon is a very effective, and not to mention easy way to clean aquarium water. It dissolves harmful impurities in water, making it cleaner, clearer and safer for your pet fishes and other water creatures.

How does activated carbon work? Activated carbon absorbs impurities in water. It is a relatively simple process. Water impurities bind with the activated carbon particles by physical or chemical attraction. Solid particles are not the only thing that activated carbon absorb, odor is absorbed by this wonder absorbent as well. Impurities in water can poison the water or may result in chemical by-products if combined with disinfectants such as chlorine, causing some adverse reactions in the water.

Ideal for both fresh and saltwater aquariums, Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Filstar Activated Carbon takes away all impurities such as odors, colors and toxic wastes from the tank. It is so versatile; you can use it with virtually all aquarium filter cartridges. Ideal for canister filters, hang-on filters, wet/dry filters and other types of aquarium filters. Made by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals, Filstar Activated Carbon is guaranteed effective and high quality, without the expensive price tag.

Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Filstar Activated Carbon is a simple way to keep water impurities at bay.

Great carbon Product Review by MARK (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I have a Rena FilStar xP3 on my turtle tank and only need to change this carbon every 3-4 weeks when using 1 packet. Turtles are notoriously messy, but this carbon keeps the water clear and odor-free with little effort. It's more expensive than bulk carbon, but it comes with the added convenience of being pre-measured in its' own filter sock.
