An established favorite from the U.S. the unique Poly-Filter is now available in South Africa and is a real asset in the fight to achieve the best water quality and sparkling clarity in your aquarium.
Poly-Filter is used for filtering and purifying both fresh and saltwater aquariums. It is a formulation of a special patented material bonded to a synthetic matrix. By means of a unique proprietary process, 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 saltwater with or without fish and invertebrates. Medication added to fresh and saltwater aquariums for treatment of diseased fish will automatically be removed by Poly-Filter after serving their intended purpose before the medication can produce a toxic effect on the fish.
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. Poly-Filter provides a supplemental means for the 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.
BECAUSE OF THIS UNIQUE FILTERING CHARACTERISTIC, POLY-FILTER ELIMINATES THE NEED AND EXPENSE OF CARBON OR ION EXCHANGE RESINS AND PROTEIN SKIMMERS.
There are many chemical products that can build up in the aquarium water over time, as well as some pollutants potentially present in tap water. Poly-Filter will remove all of these chemicals including:
- Nitrite, Nitrate and Ammonia
- Phosphates (the principal cause of algae in the aquarium)
