  • Under-Gravel Filters work by drawing water from the aquarium through the gravel.
  • This acts as a layer of filter media giving a huge surface area for mechanical and biological filtration.
  • As a mechanical filter, it uses the air-driven system (or powerhead) to create suction, that allows the gravel to capture floating particles in the water.
  • As a biological filter, harmful wastes are biologically transformed into a relatively harmless substance by aerobic bacteria that accumulates in the media and return filtered water to the aquarium.
  • Whilst being known as an old-fashioned method, under-gravel filters are still popular and are regarded by many as the best form of aquarium filtration. A lot of shops are still using these in their fish rooms.

Suitable for

  • Tropical, Cold-Water, and Marine aquariums.

Specifications

  • Each Under-Gravel Filter plate measures 14cm x 7cm.
  • Enough pieces to make a filter 56cm x 28cm or 112cm x 14cm or similar.
  • Contains 16 Under-Gravel Filter plates, 1 uplift, airline and 1 air stone.
  • Colour: Black.
