Aqua One Ocellaris 1400/UVC Black Sponge 2 Pack 140S 35ppi

A Pack of two Aqua One 140s, black fine replacement sponge pads to suit the Aqua One Ocellaris 1400 and 1400UV external filters.

The 140s sponge should be changed every four to six months for a new one. In between its fine to rinse the 140s sponge out in a little aquarium water at clean out time.

Function -140s

The Aqua One 140s Black sponge pad is designed solely to fit the new Ocellaris 1400 and 1400UV compact external canister filter. The 140s is a fine(35ppi), foam sponge. It acts to collect smaller particles of waste and also provides a culture medium for essential aerobic filtration bacteria

Effect on Flow Rate

Because the 140s is constructed from quite fine sponge it will reduce the flow rate of your Ocellaris 1400 and 1400UV when blocked and dirty. Reduced filter flow rate can be catastrophic for aquarium water quality. The solution is thankfully simple – just rinse the 140s as required in a little aquarium water and be prepared to replace the sponge as required.

Lifespan

The 140s 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 140s sponge inserts tend to become blocked very easily because their cell structure is less resilient, for this reason we suggest replacing it every four to six months.

Pack size

Two 140s 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 1400 and 1400UV filtering effectively.

Use With

The Aqua One 140s Sponge Pad works best with the Aqua One 139w Polymer Wool Pad, the 140s black sponge pad and, of course, Aqua One’s Bionoodles 600g. Inserting a bag of Aqua One’s Advance Carbon 450g between the Aqua One 139w Polymer Wool Pad and 140s in the top filter tray can bring large benefits in terms of clearer, odour free aquarium water – well worth doing in our view.
