Product Description

Size: Large, 3-Pack

filter in use

Aqueon QuietFlow Power Filters feature four stages of filtration – mechanical, chemical, biological and wet/dry – for the cleanest, clearest, healthiest water. Higher flow rates ensure higher dissolved oxygen content for healthier, more active fish. The internal pump design helps dampen noise, eliminates leaks and starts up automatically after cleaning or power interruptions.

Highlights
  • Auto-start, self-priming filter
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • No wheel to stop turning
  • Bio-Pin Wet Dry Technology

Product Features

Higher Flow Rates

Aqueon filters have higher flow rates than the competition to ensure proper turnover for cleaner water and higher dissolved oxygen content, making fish healthier and more active.

Superior Biological Filtration

The patented biological grid has a large surface area to support more of the beneficial bacteria that eliminates ammonia and nitrates. A second wet/dry grid provides further biological filtration and oxygenation as the water returns to the aquarium.

Internal Pump Design

Since the filter pump is submersed in the aquarium, there is no need for priming at setup or when restarting the filter after cleaning or power interruptions. An internal pump also allows for virtually silent operation, continuous flow raters, less chance for leaks, and a much thinner profile.

Four Stage Advanced Filtration System

Stage 1: Dense floss removes particles and debris.

Stage 2: Activated carbon removes toxins, odors and discoloration.

Stage 3: Patented Bio-Holster removes toxic ammonia and nitrites.

Stage 4: Diffuser grid removes additional toxins while adding oxygen for more active fish. It also reduces splashing makes the return exceptionally quiet.

They keep the water crystal clear and the tank clean.
J. Powell
I usually wash out the filters really well once a week or once every 2 weeks and use them 2-3 months.
Shana
The filter cartridges fit perfectly in my Aqueon 2.5 gallon Betta Fish Tank for my Rusty.

Sure, these filters perform great, they always have. I'm not really an aquarium expert but the catch a lot of goo, and seem to work well for the recommended month long lifetime.

The real takeaway is that the local big box pet store charges FIVE TIMES AS MUCH for this same box of filters as Amazon. Nuts to that. Buy your filters here.

Having to ordering replacement filters regularly is the main reason I dislike this filter setup. At least this 6pack is much cheaper than buying at the local pet store and shipping is quick. These are great if you are stuck using this filter, the filter pads themselves work fine and keep the water clean.

Try rinsing off the filter pad in old aquarium water when you do a water change to prolong the life of the cartridge. I have the 2.5 and 5 gallon minibow aquariums, and find that rinsing prolongs the usability of the filter cartridge 2-3 times longer. If the aquarium starts to get that "fishy" smell that means the activated carbon in the filter has been depleted and the cartridge is due to be replaced.

I have been using these filter with a whole Aqueon set-up with the Whisper Quiet Filter system in a 10 gallon tank for over a year now. The only place in town here that carries the Aqueon medium filters is PetCo. and it's a 35 mile drive one way from me and the filters here are half the price for 3 more!

That said, I've been very happy with these filters. Truth be told I don't change them out as soon as they recommend. I usually wash out the filters really well once a week or once every 2 weeks and use them 2-3 months. Though, I do always keep up with my partial water changes.

I guess the best testament is that my 2 bullheads are still alive and well after more than 1 year. I'd highly recommend these filters.

* Just a note to those who have cloudy water, the food you use makes a world of difference. It seems that one certain brand of flakes I use just makes my water very murky. The Aqueon flakes work the best of what brands I've fed my fish, but, they are hard to find around where I live.

This is the only place that I come across 12-pack.
And it didn't cost that much more then the 6-pack.
The more you buy the more you save.

Size Name: Medium, 12-Pack Verified Purchase
This replacement cartridge is thinner than the original one that came with my Aqueon filter. It seems to be missing the outer layer on both sides. It may be able to filter out some debris. It does nothing to make the water clear. How bad it is? With the original cartridge, I was able to keep the water clear if I turn the filter on 3-4 hours each day. Today, with this replacement cartridge, I left the filter on for 11 hours and the water color saw NO improvement at all.

Here's the update:

I went to a local Petco and bought the same cartridge, trying to compare it against the one bought from Amazon(it's actually from Coralife). Then I notice something very strange. The 12-pack I bought from Amazon actually has 2 individually sealed packages in the box. Each package has 6 cartridge. The cartridge in the first package all have the same issues mentioned above, while the cartridge in the other package are the same as the ones I bought from the local Petco. The cartridge in the 2 packages look very different. You can see through the cartridge in the first package. I have to come to the conclusion that the first package is fake. Since the box is not sealed, it's very easy to put a fake package in the box.

It's everyone's guess who put the fake package in the box.

It's a filter, it seems to do what it is supposed to although I have no way to scentifically test the efficiency of the activated charcoal.

Now the tank has settled down, the water is bright and clear. I do a water refresh every two weeks and change the filters alternate weekends. Sometimes I wash debris off it between changes.

Prices from Amazon are much better than from local stores.

What more can I say?

Very easy to change with minimal touching. Best filters I've ever used in my 55 gal. acquarium. Far better than the biowheel products. Great product!

The Aqueon Filter Cartridges do a superb job of filtering my betta fish tank. In addition to keeping the water clear, they also keep it more sanitary, due to the activated carbon within the filter.

Changing the filter is quite easy, but be warned, the filter can get a bit nasty if you haven't removed excess food and waste from you tank manually!

The price is pretty reasonable, though I do wish that a bulk buying option existed for these small-sized filters (you can only buy them in 3 and 6 packs) as I might just get another betta tank!

Overall, I am absolutely satisfied with these replacement cartridges and will continue to purchase them as needed.
