- Aquamesh Grey 4 - Fine - Lifegard
Progressive density mesh mechanical filtration system can be used as a system or separately.
Aquamesh #4 is great for fine particle filtration and micro-bubble removal after protein skimmers and before return pumps. We highly suggest running either Aquamesh #2 or #3 to keep the Fine pad from clogging too quickly.
Dimensions:19.5" x 24" x 1.5"
The Aquamesh progressive filter pads are great for pre-filtration in sumps. They have a very rigid design that will not collapse like traditional filter floss. The Progressive pads come in 4 different densities that can be ran in succession for long term use, or just a single pad can be ran as well depending on what your system needs. The stiffness of the pads makes cleaning very easy to be used over and over again.
Black #1 - Extra Coarse
Green #2 - Coarse
Blue #3 - Medium
Grey #4 - Fine
Can't Beat These Mats By Chris B on 2/14/2016Chris B would recommend this product to a friendI've used these mats on several tanks in different uses, from full on filtration mats on wet/dry trickle filters, to micro bubble and macro algae stoppers between sump areas. It has never broken down over years of use and cleaning unlike foam pads, and is available in varying coarseness. Grey is closest to filter pads FYI. It is tougher to cut, so a bandsaw or handsaw work best.
I bought one of these pads!
Any recommendations on how to cut it what tools should use?
We usually use a box cutter or sharp knife. Please be careful and wear safety gear such as gloves.
