If you've been in the aquarium hobby for any length of time, you've no doubt made an occasional mistake...You know, perhaps you've over-dosed an additive, overfed your tank, knocking nitrate and dissolved organics through the roof. Maybe you medicated your aquarium and want to make sure that the excess is removed, Or, perhaps, you love your aquatic botanicals, but you're not find of the tint they produce (gasp!), and would love to remove some of it. These are just a few of the reasons why it's great to have a few Poly Filters on hand at all times!
We LOVE this product, and have used it in our own systems for decades.
Poly Filter is a formulation of a special, patented material bonded to a synthetic matrix. By means of a unique proprietary process, the Poly Filter is also "organic-loving." It can absorb and adsorb contaminants and other toxic materials either intentionally or unintentionally added to your water. The Poly Filter media itself 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.
This unique media provides a supplemental means for removal of ammonia when your biological filtration is unable to break it down and its concentration increases rapidly. Poly Filter adsorbs the excess ammonia while the biological filter readjusts to higher ammonia input levels.
Poly Filter changes color when exhausted, so you know its time to replace it.
All in all, Poly Filter is just one of those indispensable products that we think every hobbyists should have in his/her arsenal of "fish stuff!"
