Convenient all-in-one bag/frame unit ensures exceptional mechanical and biological filtration
Completes the Whisper Power Filter package for a clean, easy-maintenance aquarium
Refill with carbon of your choice
Disposable, easy-to-use Thick n' Fluffy™ filter bags provide exceptional mechanical filtration as they effectively trap unhealthy particulate matter. Bags fit snugly around the patented Aerobic Frame®, which increases filtration surface by 200% and provides beneficial biological filtration by culturing and maintaining helpful bacterial colonies. NOT for use with Whisper EX Power Filters.
Carbon contains seven absorbent acres of surface area per ounce. Millions of micropores within each granule absorb and lock in discoloration, noxious odors, dissolved contaminants and hundreds of other chemicals such as chlorine, insecticides and detergents.
Mechanical filtration can greatly improve the health of most aquariums, and is also important for the efficiency of your biological filtration. The process is simple: mechanical media strains solid debris.
Biological filtration is the action of bacteria breaking down dangerous ammonia, converting it to nitrite, and then converting nitrite to less toxic nitrate. This article discusses how the process works.
