Product Description
The POLY-FILTER is for filtering and purifying both fresh and salt water aquariums. It is a formulation of a special patented material bonded to a synthetic matrix. By means of a unique proprietary process, the POLY-FILTER is made impervious to salt and is also organic loving to certain materials. It can absorb and adsorb contaminants and other toxic materials found in nature or added to fresh and salt water with or without fish and invertebrates. Medication added to fresh and salt water aquariums for treatment of diseased fish will automatically be removed by the POLY-FILTER after serving their intended purpose before the medication can produce a toxic effect on the fish.The POLY-FILTER is non-toxic and harmless to biological filtration because it allows a sufficient amount of ammonia to reach the biological filter in order to sustain the bacteria culture. The POLY-FILTER provides a supplemental means for removal of ammonia when the biological filter is unable to break down the excess ammonia and its concentration increases rapidly. Then the POLY-FILTER adsorbs the excess ammonia while the biological filter readjusts to higher ammonia input levels. Changes color when exhausted. 4" x 8".Poly-FilterOperating InstructionsFreshwater Application:Add Poly-Filter to any holder or apparatus at any time.Establishing Marine/Reef system:Add Poly-Filter so water can pass through it.For Maximum Filtration: Eliminate all water bypass.Poly-Filter in established marine freshwater systems: Conventional power filter: Place Poly-Filter on bottom plate.

    5I have a problem with iron in the tap water ...
    By Kharasmatic
    I have a problem with iron in the tap water from my house. Whenever I would do a water change on my tanks, they would always end up looking cloudy for a few days because of the iron. I have a Fluval 50 filter on my 36G aqueon tank, and I cut the poly filter pad to fit into the filter as an additional filtration stage. It works amazingly well for getting the iron out of the water quickly, keeping my tank clear.

    5I have been using this product for many years now
    By Not looking for FREEBIES!!!!!!!
    I have been using this product for many years now, they are overpriced by the manufacturer but worth the cost considering the alternatives that flood the market every year. You can either waste your money on other brands of plain poly or you can spend more on these and know that your fish are well protected.

    5Best pad filter yet!
    By Steve Bonaquest
    In all my 35 years of fishkeeping, this is the best mechanical filtration media
    that I've ever used. And even though they recommend having 100% of your
    water flow to go through the poly, It's got my 20 gallon display with 10 gallon
    sump crystal clear with less flowing through it. This is truly all I'll ever use.
