Hagen Fluval G Series Chemical Phosphate Cartridge
Chemical filter media actively changes water characteristics through deliberately managed chemical reactions. Fluval G series uses this basic function in an entirely new and unique filtration concept. The chemical filter media are now housed in cartridges which are directly accessible from the top of the filter. Chemical filter cartridge can be cleaned or replaced without the laborious chore of disassembling the whole filter. Changing and maintaining each cartridge is now quick and mess free.
In a 300/600 L freshwater aquarium with an excess concentration of 1-2 mg/L phosphate concentration, the use of phosphate cartridge will remove all the excess of phosphate within 1 or 2 days. If left in the filter it will sustain a low phosphate level for a period of time that is strictly dependent on the type of aquarium (quantity and type of fish, type of fish food and so on). Phosphate is irreversibly trapped bound and will not leach back into aquarium water. The continuous use of the Fluval G Phosphate cartridge in aquariums with persistent phosphate problems is an effective solution against phosphate build up. If used as a quick solution to reduce elevated phosphate concentration the cartridge can be removed once levels have normalized and then stored until required.
***The Fluval G3 Phosphate cartridge is for use with the Fluval G3 Advanced Filter and will rapidly remove up to 2200 mg of phosphate ion from marine or fresh water aquaria.
***The Fluval G6 Phosphate cartridge is for use with the Fluval G6 Advanced Filter and will rapidly remove up to 3900 mg of phosphate ion from marine or fresh water aquaria.
