Replacement filter pad set for the follow models:
Professionel 3 1200 XL (2080) external canister filter.
Professionel 3 1200 XLT (2081) thermo filter.
Contains 5 filter pads, 1 x coarse pre-filter (blue) 4 x fine (white).
The high-quality coarse (blue) foam filter pads mechanically trap dirt particles and friendly nitrifying bacteria colonises in the pores. Can be reused many times over, replace when they lose their shape.
The fine (white) filter fleeces are made of specially structured materials that mechanically trap coarse and fine dirt particles. These should be placed last (on the top) in the media layers of your external canister filter. Can only be used once, replace each time the filter is cleaned.
It is advisable that you clean the filter medias in old aquarium water during maintenance. Do NOT clean the filter medias in tap water as chlorine and chloramines will remove the beneficial nitrifying bacteria that have colonised during the maturation of the aquarium.
EHEIM filter medias are some of the best in the world. They are highly efficient, developed in their own research laboratories, and made from the best raw materials. They are continually checked and are guaranteed to be free from any harmful substances.
