How often should I change out my carbon in my aqueon 55/75 filter?


Recommended Posts

I have had my tank up and running for quite some time now and I have changed out my carbon in my Aqueon 55/75 filter about every 2 months. I don't know if I should be changing them out more frequently or should I leave them longer. I have had some people tell me to buy carbon in bulk to cut down on spending $$$ on the aqueon carbon inserts.

of course bulk is always cheaper. and most of the time better quality. ie. brs.


you should def change it out more often that 2 months. and use the amount they say to use. but if things are fine in your tank, its up to you.

Spray off the filter pad in the sink with the spray nozzle weekly to remove debris


Replace entire filter cartridge monthly.


I would follow the same if you don't use the brand filter cartridges...spray off filter floss weekly/replace the carbon monthly.
