Filtration plays a leading role in aquarium keeping, as it helps maintain a healthy environment for your fish. This is why it is essential to regularly replace your filter materials. When a cartridge, foam or filter block begins to warp, it is an indication that it is time to replace it. If you observe a decrease in filter flow, cleaning is necessary. It is essential to maintain good filter maintenance, because a poorly maintained filter can represent a danger. It is therefore crucial to be vigilant.
To use Pre-Filtration Foam in your Aquael Ultramax filter, the replacement process is simplified. Remove the filter from the aquarium, open it, remove the used Pre-Filtration Foam and simply install the new one. Take your time to carry out this operation, plan it in advance so as not to disturb your fish.
Here's a handy tip: to quickly optimize the efficiency of your filter, soak Ultramax Pre-Filtration Foam in your aquarium water for 24 hours before replacing it. This allows aquarium bacteria to colonize the moss, initiating biological filtration. This method will save you precious time, which is particularly appreciable! You can apply this tip when replacing all your filtration elements.
In conclusion, to maintain optimal filtration, be sure to replace your pre-filtration foams every 4 to 6 weeks. Don't hesitate to take advantage of plants, which also have filtering properties by absorbing nitrates. Furthermore, it is good to note that you can clean your filter every 1 to 2 weeks by simply rinsing the foams with water, without resorting to special products or excessive compression. The goal is simply to dislodge debris trapped in the filter foam.
