The sponge filter is used to purify water in aquariums through mechanical and biological filtration. Additionally, it aerates the water, enriching it with oxygen. The filtering piece is made of non-toxic foam, resistant to fresh and sea aquarium water with various chemical parameters. The structure and large surface of the sponge favor the deposition of beneficial microorganisms involved in the biological filtration process.
After immersing the filter in water, knead the new filter thoroughly to remove the air from the sponge. Using the suction cups included in the package, attach it in the desired place, preferably in the bottom part of one of the side windows. The hose is connected to the pump – buzzer – or to the air installation. The water flow through the filter is regulated by the amount of air forced in. More filters can be installed in the aquarium to increase the effectiveness of water purification. When the layer of impurities on the sponge is clearly visible, carefully take it out of the aquarium and knead it in water at room temperature until most of the sediment is removed, and a small amount left behind will give rise to a new biological membrane.
Attention! We never boil the sponges or rinse them in hot water, as this would destroy all strains of beneficial microorganisms. The only indication for chemical or thermal disinfection is the occurrence of disease or the invasion of harmful pathogens in the aquarium. After such treatment, the filter must be matured again, to speed up the process, we recommend using Bacto-Active. When setting up an aquarium and during water changes, we recommend the use of Antychlor, which removes chlorine and heavy metals from the water. It is also advisable to use Esklarin, which protects living organisms against the harmful factors of raw tap water.
