All the filter pads can be used for both freshwater and marine fish with the exception of the Water Clarity pad which is for freshwater only. We have integrated a dedicated chamber into all sump filtration systems to accommodate these filter pads, but PowerPads can still be used in older and other non CASCO aquatic systems by simply adding the PowerPad into the filter media chamber. The result is a complete and adaptable filtration system.
ACTIVATED CARBON FILTER PAD
The Activated Carbon pad removes chlorine, heavy metals, toxic substances and other large organic compounds, as well as tannins and organics that can cause yellow and discoloured water. Also highly effective in removing any fish disease treatments once a treatment cycle has been completed. Remove during the live treatment cycle, and replace once the cycle is complete.
PHOSPHATE (PO4) REDUCTION FILTER PAD
The phosphate in tap water can cause an excessive growth of algae, use the Phosphate Reduction pad to resolve this and slow or even stop the growth of algae in the system tanks.
NITRITE (NO2) & NITRATE (NO3) REDUCTION FILTER PAD
High levels of nitrate can cause excessive growth of algae and cause issues for sensitive fish and invertebrates. Our Nitrite and Nitrate Reducing Power Pad quickly and easily reduces levels of both. Particularly useful in areas with higher levels of nitrate in the tap water feeding the aquatic racks.
AMMONIA (NH3) REDUCTION FILTER PAD
Use the Ammonia Reducing Power Pad when starting a new system, after a large fish delivery or after a deep clean of the rack. We advise keeping a few on hand ready to quickly deal with an spike or rise in ammonia in your system.
WATER CLARITY FILTER PAD
For crystal clear aquariums use the Water Clarity power Pad to remove even the tiniest of suspended particles in the system water. This water ‘polishing’ will make your system water sparklingly
