Your protein skimmers
and other cleaning devices will not work properly without the right means for segregating the liquid from the pollutants. You may want to try the Pura Filtration Pad 710 from Pet Store
, which is an excellent substitute for activated carbon and rocks to clear the water. It is also quite the convenient product for mechanical processes. It will save you the trouble of having to refill your cartridges frequently, which you will have to do with a form of media that comes in scattered particles. This foam possesses a diameter of 7.5 inches in length by 10.5 inches in width.
The pad comes in a circular body, which is quite porous, allowing the water to pass through it easily, while at the same time, preventing solid debris and pollutants from entering. It also effectively collects these impurities in a chamber inside it, avoiding repeated filtration processes.
While this product is known to be used exclusively for mechanical processes, you may be surprised to find out that it also does quite well when it comes to chemical cleaning. It is equipped with a formula that reduces the levels of phosphate on your water. Thus, it minimizes the growth of harmful algae and scum. The Pura Filtration Pad 710 is truly an excellent tool, which will provide you with two, different kinds of cleaning at the price of one.
Groundbreaking filtration media at the right price. For Reef, Marine, Planted, and Fresh Water aquaria!The PURA family of filtration media is formulated to reduce scum formation in fresh and marine aquaria.
All PURA products are formulated with Beta-GFH (Beta Ferric Oxide Hydroxide), the groundbreaking German made phosphate removing media that eliminates the primary nutrient of aquarium scum. PURA filtration products lead to a much cleaner and less labor-intensive aquarium, good for the animals, good for the hobbyist.Hydrated Beta-GFH is vastly superior to white colored Alumina based phosphate removers and greatly superior to numerous Alpha-Ferric Hydroxides sold in dry form.
PURA PhosLock removes 45% more phosphates than Alumina media, and 20% more than Alpha-Ferric Hydroxides. Unlike Alumina, PhosLock never leaches phosphates back to the aquarium. Unlike competing Alpha-Ferric Hydroxides, PhosLock never disintegrates and never turns soft and muddy in aquarium water. PhosLock comes fully activated right out of the jar. PhosLock does not need a specialized reactor and can be easily confined and implemented in a fine meshed media bag.PURA Filtration Pad
Full Spectrum Chemical Filtration & Massive Filtration Surface Area Removal of Phosphates, Organics, Toxins, Ammonia, Heavy Metals, Particulates Ideal for Reef, Plant, Fish, Marine, and Fresh Systems
PURA Filtration Pads offer all the filtration capabilities of PURA Complete in an easy to implement filter pad form. Technologically advanced and patented manufacturing technique allows for a inch thick pad impregnated with solid particles of media. This pad has a loose structure that resists premature clogging, contains thick and thin fibers to maximize fine filtration, contains a massive 5 ounces of media per square foot of pad, and has a debris trapping and indicating white overlay. This pad is ideal for wet/dry drip trays, power filters, canister filters, refugiums, and pond filters. Available in two generous sizes, PURA pads outperform all Poly pads. Equally important is what this pad does not have: no glues, no ash, and no binders. All 5 oz of media are fully utilizable for filtration. Used as directed, this product will maintain extremely low phosphate levels and extremely low levels of all aquarium pollutants
Highly effective and top performing in both chemical and mechanical filtrations, PURA Pads are ideal for wet/dry drip trays and canister applications. PURA Pads can easily be tucked into hang on back filters for superb chemical filtration. PURA Pads have the most highly varied and effective fiber matrix of any filter pad. Composed of a rich mixture of varied fiber lengths and thickness as well as of fibers of varied melting point, PURA Pads are thermally bonded to perfection and contain an astonishing 5 oz of media per square foot. Unlike mono fiber pads that are glued together with ash slurries, PURA Pads have regions of different densities. This unique characteristic offers extremely fine particulate filtration, resistance to premature clogging and media that is not coated with adheasives for 45% more effecient chemical filtration. PURA Pads offer a rich filtration environment unlike any other. The mix of premium granular media with its numerous pore structures and the complex fiber matrix with its variable fiber density make for a pad with a surface area thousands of times greater than any other filter pad.For aquarium and pond use only.
