Eheim Aktiv Carbon - 2l

Active filter carbon with a high performance level – especially after treatment with medications 

EHEIM AKTIV is acid washed and activated for automatic water absorption (active surface area 1200 m²/g). Thus, it very quickly binds harmful chemical substances like pesticides, medical treatment residues and other substances and retains them. The water in the aquarium will turn crystal clear. Its use is particularly important after treating the livestock with medications. 

EHEIM AKTIV should only be used for a limited amount of time (ca. 4 weeks) and then removed or replaced. 

In the filter’s layering set-up EHEIM AKTIV should be used directly after the mechanical (e.g. EHEIM MECH or MECHpro) and the biological filter media (e.g. EHEIM SUBSTRATpro) in the net bag provided. 

  • Active carbon for self-activating adsorption 
  • Quickly binds chlorine, pesticides and other chemical substances 
  • Use e.g. after new tank installation or treatment with medications
  • Use only for a limited period of time (ca. 4 weeks) 
  • Suitable for fresh and marine water

Tip:
Only use adsorptive filter media for a few weeks, as the harmful substances are only attached and can loosen after some time and be reintroduced into the water. At the very least they should be changed regularly. Normally adsorptive filtration is only necessary during aquarium set-up or after treatments with medications.

Each filter has three roles in a planted aquarium. In order of importance:

NITRIFICATION
It is the most important! Toxic and algae-causing ammonia in the aquarium must be decomposed. As fast as possible. Billions of bacteria growing in the filter convert ammonia into nitrite and then nitrate.

WATER CIRCULATION
Nutrients (plant food and CO2) must reach the plants. Solid decomposition products should be kept afloat. Good performance is essential.

WATER TREATMENT
Solid decomposition products must be physically removed from the aquarium and decomposed in a filter or removed during cleaning.

For a filter to fully perform all three roles, it must meet several criteria. Ideally suitable to have a bucket of the right size to store the right amount of filter media. The filter material contained in it must be of adequate quality and variety. The pump in the filter must have sufficient capacity. The filter should be easy to clean so that the cumbersome process does not deter the aquarist from regular maintenance. Plus, the filter needs to be reliable; no one wants to flood a living room or office due to a cracked tap or joint.
