filter question

  1. roseofsharon Initiate Member

    My 3 gallon betta set up is working well, all cycled with a heater and my fishie is happy. It has been a few weeks now. I have an Azoo Palm filter and I am wondering how to maintain it...for example, how often do you change the media and what is the correct way to do it?

    hey rose! azoo palm filter,those have a filter fiber pad and a black coarse sponge right? rinse the coarse sponge in OLD tank water every other water change, do NOT use tap water as it contains chlorine and will kill any beneficial bacteria on it, and replace the fiber pad when ever dirty... just pull um out and put them back in, monthly cleaning of the motor and housing helps too.

    Ok, thank you, great information, just what I was looking for. I searched some threads earlier this morning looking for advice but didn't find I asked the question. Thanks again!
