Replacing an Aqua One 300c Carbon Cartridge
The 143C Carbon Cartridge is an essential part of your aquarium set up and if you're serious about water quality in your AquaLantern and aquarium, then the Aqua one 104c carbon cartridge is a must. It works in two ways: by trapping the finest particles of fish waste and aquarium debris and secondly, the high quality carbon granules clarify and purify your aquarium water. Generally it's best to replace the the 143C cartridge with a new one every 4 to 6 weeks as the effectiveness of the activated carbon becomes depleted.
Aquarium Maintenance Made Easy...
The 143c cartridge itself is however quite a clever little thing designed with complex aims and objectives in mind. The top sponge layer is carefully manufactured to be a specific density, ideal to trap a month's worth of solids yet not impede water flow. The carbon granules are enclosed within the 143C Cartridge and provide an essential roll in removing toxins from your water, both purifying and clarifying.
The Aqua One 143c carbon cartridges are not designed to grow the beneficial bacteria as with other filtration elements in your AquaLantern Aquarium, rather the 143c is around to remove harmful solids and excess chemical waste from your aquarium.
143c cartridges don't always last the full six weeks in between changes and it's worth checking on their performance once per week. Check that the 143C cartridge hasn't become clogged. If so, don't attempt to wash the cartridge under the tap, it has been used up - change it.
Change every six weeks
While the 143c carbon cartridge needs changing every six weeks, other filtration elements such as the filter pump and 107i impeller also need checking on a regular basis. As ever, a little maintenance often is key.
