In addition to particle removal, Filstar XP Filtration 30 PPI Foam Pads will also remove ammonia, medications, dyes and other similar contaminants. Foam pad filters do an excellent job of cleaning and purifying tank water, reducing aquarium maintenance needs and saving time. These filters are intended for use with API Filstar XP Canister Filters and should be placed in the lower portion of the filter, above a 20 pip foam pad as indicated in the installation instructions. Pads are sold in 2-piece sets, with each set lasting for approximately 3 months. For the best filter performance, pads should be replaced regularly.
