Filter media changes the quality of the water passing through the filter and helps to create an optimal environment which meets your fish’s needs. We have a range of mechanical, chemical and biological filter media, and have products to suit any tank and its needs. Looking for filter media to fit Fluval filters? The Fluval filter makes keeping and maintaining fish tanks easy. All Fluval filter media is available for the Fluval U range of filters. Other important media include carbon filter media which is designed to remove toxins and discoloration from the water. So, next time you find your tank water looking a little yellow and stained then carbon filter media will stop this problem. Phosphate removers are also important as phosphates are a factor in the build up of algae in your tank.
