Aqua One Ocellaris 3000/UVC Blue Sponge 2 Pack 141S 15ppi

A Pack of two Aqua One 141s blue, 15ppi coarse replacement sponge pads to suit the Aqua One Ocellaris 3000 and 3000UV external filters.

The 141s sponge should be changed every four to six months for a new one. In between its fine to rinse the 141s sponge out in a little aquarium water at clean out time.

Function -141s

The Aqua One 141s Blue sponge pad is designed solely to fit the Ocellaris 3000 and3000UV compact external canister filter. The 141s acts to collect solid waste (thereby preventing the finer sponges being blocked prematurely) and also provides a culture medium for essential aerobic filtration bacteria

Effect on Flow Rate

Because the 141s is constructed from quite fine sponge it will reduce the flow rate of your Ocellaris 3000 and 3000UV when blocked and dirty. Reduced filter flow rate can be catastrophic for aquarium water quality. The solution is thankfully simple – just replace the 141s as required.

Lifespan

The 141s should last several months of average use and may be rinsed in a little aquarium water at filter clean out time (the dirty water should then be discarded). Older 141s sponge inserts tend to let more debris through than is ideal, for this reason we suggest replacing it every four to six months.

Pack size

Two 141s are provided per pack. Making a pack last between eight and twelve months. Heavily stocked aquariums may shorten this life span – do what is required to keep you Aqua One Ocellaris 3000 and 3000UV filtering effectively.

Use With

The Aqua One 141s Sponge Pad works best with the Aqua One Polymer Wool Pad, the black sponge pad and, of course, Aqua One’s Bionoodles. Inserting a bag of Aqua One’s Advance Carbon between the w and the s black sponge pad in the top filter tray can bring large benefits in terms of clearer, odour free aquarium water – well worth doing in our view
