The sponge supplied with the PAT MINI filter can trap even the finest visible impurities, performing efficient mechanical filtration of water in the tank. In addition, the sponge provides an ideal living environment for strains of beneficial nitrifying bacteria that oxidize ammonia and nitrates, toxic substances that are harmful to fish. Maintenance of the sponge is very simple and takes less than a minute. Regular maintenance will guarantee continuous operation of the filter, and the inhabitants of our aquarium will swim in crystal-clear and toxin-free water.
The device is very easy to install thanks to a holder equipped with strong suction cups and a functional bracket that can be used to hook the filter onto the edge of a tank wall.
The PAT MINI filter is compatible with the AQUAEL sprinkler and the AQUAEL MINI UV water sterilizer. Replacement sponge media can be purchased separately. They are available either in the standard version or in the CARBOMAX and PHOSMAX versions. The CARBOMAX sponge is saturated with activated carbon to remove chemical contaminants and water discoloration. The PHOSMAX sponge is intended for removing phosphates from the water in order to prevent the growth of algae.
