Fluval's 07 Series utilises every square inch of available canister volume and positions media resourcefully to maximise media space in a compact footprint.
Fluval is the only brand to offer a vertical pre-filter orientation, which provides more surface area and better mechanical filtration. An independent cartridge with 4 chambers for quick and convenient access.

There are 13 different types of filter media available for the 07 Series, ranging from pre-filter, biological, chemical and mechanical. We'll go into the different types and what they're used for later in this post.

Your filter is only as effective as the media you use! Fluval's laboratories use premium-grade, long-lasting materials and compounds to ensure your aquarium water is healthy and contaminant-free. Fluval's quality assurance program achieves the highest media efficiency and dependability possible.

Fluval media is custom made for your Fluval filter to effectively trap waste and debris. Non-authentic media can lead to irregularities or gaps that can reduce performance.
Using non-authentic media may pose a threat to the warranty coverage of your filter and its parts. If any piece of equipment is worth investment, it's your filter and filter media.

Now let's talk about the full range of media available for the Fluval 07 Series. Let's start with Pre-Filter Media!

For 306/307 & 406/407 - £9.49

Fluval Resin-Infused Phosphate Remover

Designed specifically for Fluval 07 Filters, it performs a double-duty as both an effective mechanical and chemical media. Controls phosphate to reduce algae and greenwater - use as many pads as necessary to reduce and control phosphate levels. Prevents potential algae outbreaks and helps trap floating particles promoting clear water.
For best results, replace monthly or as required after testing water with a test kit.

For 106/107 & 206/207 - £7.98
For 306/307 & 406/407 - £9.49

Fluval Resin-Infused Nitrite Remover
