*Replacement filter media for Fluval FX aquarium canister filters

Replace old or worn filter media to maintain superior filtration. Fluval FX Series Carbon Impregnated Foam Pad plays an important role by providing mechanical and chemical filtration to the multistage Fluval FX series canister filters. Captures micro debris particles while the added carbon removes odor, discoloration, as well as heavy metals and organic contaminants, keeping aquarium water clean and crystal clear.

Suitable for use with Fluval FX4 High Performance Canister Filter and FX6 High Performance Canister Filter. Rinse frequently and replace every month for best performance. 2 pack.

To ensure optimal and proper functioning of your Fluval FX External Filter, regular maintenance is required. Failure to do so may result in the failure of the filter and will invalidate your warranty. Additionally, regular cleaning and maintenance will greatly reduce or completely prevent faults and reduction in performance. Please refer to the maintenance schedule below.
