Outstanding mechanical, chemical, biological, and wet/dry filtration
LED Indicator light flashes when its time to replace dirty cartridges
High-performance hang-on aquarium power filter boasts more filtration stages PLUS a LED Cartridge Change indicator light to ensure optimal filter performance. Aqueon QuietFlow 10 LED PRO Power Filter features advanced 5-stage filtration to remove more aquarium pollutants. LED indicator flashes when dirty, clogged cartridge needs replacement.
Aqueon QuietFlow10 LED PRO Power Filter employs MEDIUM Aqueon Filter Cartridges featuring dense floss material that covers both sides of the filter cartridge to trap more particle and debris for optimal mechanical filtration.

Aqueon QuietFlow LED PRO Power Filter is equipped with an Led Cartridge Change Indicator. This unique patented feature provides an easy visual indicator when it's time to replace the filter cartridge. When the filter cartridge(s) become fully clogged with debris, the water level rises within the filter. The higher water level means the filter cartridge needs to be replaced. The clogged filter cartridge triggers the LED Cartridge Change Indicator to begin flashing and is your visual signal to change the filter cartridge. Simply replace the cartridge(s) by following the instructions listed. Once the new cartridge has been installed the LED Cartridge Change Indicator will stop flashing.
Installation/Operation STEP 1
Check filter for any signs of shipping damage. If damaged, do not operate and return to place of purchase. STEP 2
Remove new cartridge from bag(s) and rinse under cold water to remove carbon dust. STEP 3

Unlike natural aquatic systems, toxic compounds accumulate quickly in an enclosed aquarium system. Without a natural means to efficiently remove these toxic compounds or wastes, conventional aquariums are dependent upon filtration devices.
There are three basic types of aquarium filter media and each performs a different job to help keep a clean and healthy aquarium environment. This article gives a basic overview of the three main types of filter media.
