Everything you need to know

Seachem supplies a comprehensive range of fish tank filters.

Our filtration products will remove copper, nitrate and phosphate, along with other biological and chemical contaminants from your tank.

It is important to learn about each of the aquarium filters we supply so that you can make an informed decision about how to keep your tank clean.

Which aquarium filter do I need?

If you’re shopping for a filter for your fish tank, you must first determine what is present to be filtered from your tank and in what amounts you need to use each filtration media.

Below is a comprehensive list of all fish tank filters that Seachem supplies and what they are used for.

If you require further information before making your aquarium filter purchase or using your products, please check our FAQ page or feel free to reach out to us for help and advice.

Fish tank filters for the filtration of chemicals, including copper and phosphate:

CupriSorb – for the filtration of copper.

Copper is always present in the sea and in marine aquariums.

In aquariums, where there is much less water than in the sea, copper levels can become dangerously high.

Use water testing to determine copper levels and, when needed, use CupriSorb to quickly and effectively reduce those levels.

Purigen – helps to control levels of ammonia and nitrate.

Purigen is far and away the best quality fish tank filter on the market.

It’s easy to use, has a big impact and changes colour when exhausted so you can clearly see when it needs to be replaced.

Renew – helps to control levels of ammonia, nitrate and phosphate.

Less aggressive than carbon renew is suitable for reef and planted aquaria, as well as beneficial in soft water aquaria.

PhosGuard – fish tank filter for silicate and phosphate.

Rising phosphate levels can cause algae to bloom and reduce oxygen levels in your tank.

PhosGuard quickly removes phosphate and silicate from marine and freshwater tanks.

SeaGel – a blend of Matrix Carbon and PhosGuard. A powerful carbon for the removal of organic and colour impurities.

Pond PhosGuard – a non-herbicidal, environmentally friendly solution to the problem of phosphate control in ponds.

Fish tank filters for the filtration of biological contaminants, including nitrate:

Matrix Carbon – a unique activated carbon that removes aquarium organic matter.

Matrix – a high porosity biomedia that provides efficient biofiltration for the removal of nitrogenous waste in ponds.

Pond Matrix – a high porosity biomedia that provides efficient biofiltration for the removal of nitrogenous waste in ponds.

DeNitrate – removes nitrates, nitrates, ammonia and organics.

When buying any filter for your fish tank also consider purchasing Seachem’s The Bag.
This filter bag is designed specifically for the purpose of use with each and every one of Seachem’s filtration products.

Keeping your water safe

At Seachem we produce a comprehensive range of premium aquarium medication products.

These specialist aquarium water treatment products include antiseptics, as well as aquarium antibiotics to protect against and cure bacterial, fungal, parasitic and viral infections.

The most versatile aquarium medication on the market

Most aquarium medication requirements can be met with one wonder product – Seachem Paraguard.

This is a product that no aquarium keeper should ever be without.

In fact, there is no comparable competitor product on the market today.

Paraguard is the only parasite control product on the market that is 100% safe for your fish and your filter.

It contains no formaldehyde or methanol – both of which are commonly found in many aquarium medications and can alter the pH of your tank.

It should be added whenever new fish are added to your tank community, as well as in a ‘fish hospital’ set up.

Seachem Paraguard uses a proprietary, synergistic blend of malachite green, aldehydes and fish protective polymers.

These efficiently and safely eradicate many ectoparasites (white spot) and external fungal, viral lesions and bacterial infections (fin rot).

Other aquarium medications from Seachem

Seachem Reef Dip – Reef dip can be used to gently disinfect corals.

It is effective against bacteria, fungus and protozoans and can be used as a preventative measure or a remedy.

It should not be used in the tank itself (read instructions carefully before use).

Seachem Cupramine – a copper treatment for external parasites.

Seachem Garlicguard – a garlic scented odour and flavour enhancer for finicky eaters!

Garlicguard is also great for detoxification and controlling parasites.

Why Seachem for aquarium antibiotics?

It is not uncommon for aquarium medication products with banned, potentially harmful, ingredients to make their way onto the UK market.

For this reason it is incredibly important that you buy a trusted brand, sold by an official supplier.

Seachem is run by people passionate about aquarium keeping and we employ world class scientists to create the most effective, affordable products on the market today.
Most of our products vastly outperform the competition and last much longer, thereby saving more money, not to mention marine life, in the long run.
