Aqua Medic PhosphatFilter Fe removes phosphates in an effective way
The Aqua medic phosphatﬁlter Fe is a compact chemical ﬁltration chamber for aquarium use. It can be installed in line with any standard canister ﬁlter or fed via a separate pump.
The aqua medic phosphatﬁlter Fe unit contains 400 ml of antiphos Fe. This reduces the level of phosphate and thereby curtails the growth of ﬁlamentous algae.
Depending on the phosphate level, one ﬁlling of antiphos may be sufﬁcient for an aquarium up to 600 litres (app. 150 gallons) for between 3 – 6 months.
The phosphatﬁlter Fe can be used for fresh- and saltwater aquaria.
Ø app. 8 cm (app. 3.2″), length app. 24 cm (app. 9.45″),
hose connection: 12 and 16 mm
The Aqua Medic phosphate filter is a ready to use filtration system for aquaria to remove phosphates from fresh and salt water. Phosphate (phosphorus) emerges from the decomposition of organic substances, i. e. remaining food, excrements, dead plants, algae and micro organism. Although phosphorus is an important cell component, higher loadings of it are harmful and lead to mass reproduction of algae. These problems are well-known not only from the aquaristic field but also from over-fertilized rivers and lakes. A reduction of increased phosphate loadings is necessarily required.
The Aqua Medic phosphate filter is equipped with two tube connections and can be used as outside or inside filter. The filter is installed with the attached holder at a horizontal brace or the aquarium glass. The filter is connected via a tube with a pump of a maximum flow capacity of 1,000 l/h. The flow direction is irrelevant. The phosphate filter is filled with antiphos Fe. It can bind phosphate in a way that it will not be rinsed out or dissolved through bacterial processes. With antiphos Fe, a selective removal of phosphate from the aquarium water is possible. There is no risk of overdosing because the phosphate binding medium is anchored in the matrix of the carrier material.
