Fluval C2 Power Filter
The Fluval C2 Power Filter features 5 stages of filtration: 2 mechanical, 1 chemical and 2 biological stages for top performance. The C2 Power Filter is equipped with the Fluval C2 Poly/Foam, Activated Carbon, C-nodes and drip tray pad. An integrated trickle chamber filled with C-Nodes is where biological filtration is super charged for fast and efficient nitrification. The mechanical filtration is performed by a dual layer of foam and polyester, and is easily removed for quick cleaning. The patented recirculation grid enhances mechanical filtration when the flow rate is reduced. A convenient chemical insert basket directs water flow to maximize toxin removal. Maintaining only one stage at a time will preserve beneficial bacteria, resulting in a stress-free environment, while ensuring aquarium water stays clear. The Fluval C2 Power Filter clips on, is ideal for use on aquariums up to thirty gallons and is the perfect way to provide your fish with refreshing and clear water.
Fluval C Series Power Filter
Engineered to create superior water quality, the Fluval C Power Filter provides extensive 5-stage filtration for outstanding results. The Power Filter is designed to provide maximum surface area and optimum dwell times in all stages of the filtration process.
New 5 Stage Filtration System
Stage 1 & 2: Mechanical- Poly/Foam Pad Effective mechanical filtration is essential for efficient chemical and biological filtration. The large surface area of the Poly/Foam pad effectively performs two stages of Mechanical filtration. The first stage of porous foam traps large particles and the second stage of dense polyester captures fine debris.
Stage 3: Chemical- Activated Carbon Insert The Fluval Activated Carbon Filter Insert contains 100% premium research grade carbon, which provides large amounts of surface area for adsorption of undesirable impurities. The activated carbon filter insert removes unwanted odors, discoloration and impurities, resulting in a crystal clear aquarium.
Stage 4: Biological-Bio-Screen An additional hydraulic circuit conveys part of the intake water to the Bio-Screen placed at the top of the Trickle Chamber cover. Fluval’s Bio-Screen removes any debris before dripping into the biological chamber. It also ensures that the water pumped to the Trickle Chamber is evenly spread through all areas before it drips on the C-Nodes, which are contained in the chamber. The motion of water dropping slowly through the grids mimics the rain.
Stage 5: Biological- C-Nodes The surface of the C-Nodes is made up of a complex pore system that provides optimal living space for beneficial bacteria to thrive and enhance the removal of ammonia and nitrites. The new “Star Shape” provides a higher filtration surface and more biological power than a traditional cartridge, resulting in a healthy aquarium environment.
Sometimes delicate fish and plants require a more gentle water flow. Fluvals’ patented re-filtration system allows you to control the flow rate without compromising filtration efficiency. When the flow rate is reduced, up to 50% of the water within the filter chamber is re-processed multiple times. More impurities are filtered out, creating a healthier tank with sparkling clean and clear water
