  • Durable Polyester Fibers: Constructed with strong polyester fibers bonded with our special resin, our filter pad outlasts the competition.

  • Color-Fast Blue Pigment: Our filter pad remains vibrant longer thanks to the added blue pigment that clings to the resin, keeping the color on the pad and out of your aquarium water.

Classic Aquarium Filter

Our Classic blue and white filter pad is a popular multipurpose filter media perfect for freshwater or saltwater aquariums. Here are a few tips and Frequently Ask Question to help you get the most out of our filter pads.


Make A Template Since pads need to be replaced on a regular basis, a cardboard template can be made of the filter pad you are replacing. Keep and use this template whenever you need to cut out new filter pads.

Safe From The Bag Classic Bonded Filter Pads can be placed directly in your aquarium filter from our bag or, if you prefer, rinse the pad first in clean fresh water.


Does it matter if the water goes through the Blue or white side of your Classic Filter Pad first?

Our Classic Filter pads are designed to flow and filter water exactly the same through either side. It comes down to personal preference if you like the white or blue side up.

How often should I change my aquarium filter pad?

Most hobbyists rinse the filter pad every two weeks and replace them monthly during a water change. The more often you change filter pads the better your water quality; filter pads remove organic solids before they have a chance to further break down.

Can I clean and reuse the Classic Bonded Filter Pads?

Our durable Classic Filter Pads can be rinsed and reused. The method to clean the pad is determined by how it is used. A typical filter pad is used as mechanical pre-filter material which means its only purpose is to capture floating debris from the water. In this case, clean the pad by rinsing it in freshwater while squeezing it out a few times. Some hobbyists use filter pads as part of their biological filter. They use the pad surface area to grow beneficial bacteria which breaks down fish waste, uneaten food, etc. To keep the good bacteria alive the pad must be rinsed in fresh or saltwater where the chlorine or chloramines have been treated. Another method is to clean the pad in a bucket of old tank water. Either way, just rinse and squeeze the pad a few times to remove trapped debris.

I have a pad that was compressed in shipping. Is there a way to return it to its normal height?

A hair dryer can be used to soften the resin and it will return to its normal state.

I have used filter pads where the dye comes off the pad and goes into my aquarium. Will the dye come off your Classic Filter Pads?

We add our blue pigment to our special binding resin and this keeps the color on the pad and out of your aquarium water longer than other filter media pads.
