Make your fish happy & aquarium water crystal clear
As we all know, cloudy tank is common due to tank tiny creatures recycle. Healthy tank tiny creatures recycle will make the aquarium water more clear and in good quality, which in turns to make your little fish, shrimp and other aquarium pets live a healthy and happy life.

Bio ceramic midea balls
Media balls provide a surface for bioload where helpful tiny creatures can live quickly. The filter package includes a small bag of ceramic midea balls. 0.25lbs for small size, 0.27lbs for medium size.
You can also replace this ceramic media with other medias like carbon, ammonia absorbers, etc…everything you can do to keep your water sparkling clean is a benefit to your aquatic pets and plants.
Suggest to replace the ceramic media balls every 6 months or when you find its water permeability truns poor. It’s very easy to buy more ceramic media balls on amazon.
60ppi Fine sponges- home for nitro tiny creatures
The sponge we used is very fine, with ultra strong water absorption, will give much more surface area for beneficial tiny creatures to live on. Nitro tiny creatures must be attached to a fixed surface to form a biological layer before nitrogen cycle can take place.
2 spare sponges
The package includes 2 spare sponges. Please note when you take them out of containers, they may look badly packed and out of shape, don’t worry, just put them aside, the sponges will gradually get back to they original shape, or you can submerge them in water to help that.
How long should I replace the sponge?
Replace the sponge once every three to six month or when the sponge gets worn out. It’s better to replace them one by one, interval could be 2 week or more.
Water outlet adjustable
The air water outlet tube is telescopic, can be adjusted above the water line or below, and it’s 360 degree rotatable.
When water outlet is under water, it will add more air into water and make small water flow, bubbles will come out into water, just like the air stone does.
When the outlet is above waterline, a small stream of water will come out from the tube, may make some water noise.
Directions for use
For new tank, your water might be cycling. Don’t add a lot of fish right away and wait it out.
An established tank (been up and running with fish in it for at least a month or two) running your old filter along with the this one until it has a chance to have beneficial tiny creatures.
Before place the midea balls into the containers, please wash the balls with clean water. And wash the sponges before using.
