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.
