AquaClear A595 First Impressions


DO NOT CLEAN OR WASH the paper wheel itself. I've think I've had had six of them. I was worried about some of the negative reviews. The bacteria eats the nitrates in the water to help keep it clean. Replace activated carbon every 6-8 months ish. Oscars are very messy fish, especially during feeding. I've looked at so many filters and reviews.

AquaClear A595 Final Thoughts

One piece of advice.

My box came in good condition, parts where in tact and new. With the 350's inexpensive price point, you can’t go wrong with this powerful filter. I use Marinelands refillable cartridge for extra carbon on the extra slots. Early on it seems to be working as advertised. That water got so dirty we had to keep changing it every 2 or 3 days. Fill up the media slot with water until it's full. Not sure what I'll do with the more complex design.
