Premium, research-grade, low-ash Fluval Carbon is highly porous, providing large amounts of surface area for absorption of impurities present in aquarium water. The inner matrix structure provides a large porous area that permanently traps organic waste while removing liquid wastes such as urine, dyes or many other impurities from the water. The activated carbon effectively removes heavy metals, odors, discolorations, organic contaminants and pollutants to leave your aquarium water crystal clear and sparkling. It does not contain phosphates and will not change the pH of the aquarium water. Fluval Carbon is pure activated carbon that is ideal in both fresh and salt water.
Fluval first broke onto the aquatic scene in 1975 by introducing the world’s first 3-stage filter with synchronous motor technology – a landmark breakthrough that is still applied in the industry today. Since then, Fluval has built a legacy around this pioneering spirit, relentlessly adapting in a changing world to launch innovative aquarium products that remain at the forefront of technology, and which set the bar in quality, style and functionality. Above and beyond its manufacturing role, Fluval prides itself on its charitable and educational efforts that give back to the fishkeeping community, whether it means helping to fund the protection of wild coral reefs or jumping on a plane to document endangered fish species halfway around the world. Fluval’s mission is not just about building products that mimic the natural world, but inspiring aquarists of all skill levels to enjoy and respect the hobby for generations to come.
Fluval Carbon Filter Media Insert is capable of adsorbing most liquified impurities and dyes present in aquarium water. It does not contain phosphates and will not change the pH of the aquarium water. Fluval carbon is very pure activated carbon that is ideal in both fresh and salt water. The inner matrix structure provides a large porous area that permanently traps organic waste while removing liquid wastes such as urine, dyes or many other impurities from the water. The result is sparkling clear aquarium water.

My family and I have used everything Fluval in our Red-eared Slider & Yellow Belly Slider Aquatic Turtle tanks, as well as our Cichlid, Loach & even our little girls tiny guppy tank :)
All of our “water-babies” tank’s water quality is great and stays consistently clear.
We own multiple Fluval canister filters as well. Fluval makes tank maintenance simple and easy to use. I keep healthy turtles and fish if I stick with this brand of products.
Fluval knows how to make maintaining your tank easier and keep your aquatic companions happy and healthy, without breaking the bank. You get superior quality for your $.
I’m writing this review because I KNOW it can be such a headache when trying to find the right items with all the thousands of companies telling you to buy their products, people telling and what you need to do or buy. Block that out! If you want to make it easier on yourself and actually enjoy your pets...Find Fluval products on Amazon or another reputable retailer.
Fluval’s packaging tells you the compatible product by color code.
There’s always a reputable pet store authorized to sell Fluval if you run out of a item and need it immediately.
Just remember, if your just starting out with aquatic pets that everyone’s gone through trial and error. If you really felt the desire to start...Don’t give up.
You’d be surprised how much joy turtles, fish, etc can bring into your life.
If you haven’t experienced it yet, you’ll see that in their own unique style, creatures have little (or BIG lol) personalities. Fish are actually silly and quite funny. Turtles can be hilarious. They all just want to be noticed. Once a human notices a creature, even plants become more beautiful...well, just watch what happens ;) (it’s amazing); and I’m sure there’s many people who would agree.
I spent way too long pulling my hair out trying to find the right products and solutions. I really hope this helps someone!
I had spent days researching the necessity
The results were a little in settling as it clearly stated on many websites that carbon would cover up issues in the tank and Carbon also removes Minerals that are important to your fishes health!!! I recommend not wasting money as I no longer do maybe add more plain biological filtration instead or bio matrix all better than carbon for your fishes health!!!!
