Filtration Pads Progressive Micro-Filtration Pads 2 pk
Filstar is a great product
I run two XP3's on a 75 gallon African Cichlid tank attached to a 29 gallon planted tank through a 20 gallon sump. The XP3's handle all of the micro mechanical filtration for all three tanks. Normally, I only have to rinse most of the the pads in tank water and they keep performing well, keeping the water crystal clear. The micro pads do need to be changed occasionally as they do trap really, really fine particles that won't rinse out. The frequency drops after the tank "settles in". I've tried other filtration media, but have found them to clog too quickly or not filter as well.

good product easy to use
I have 6 of the ExP filters and have been using them for years. I have had other canister filters and have not been this pleased. Great filter easy to use and does a good job. Keeps my water crystal clear I would recommend this to anyone.
