The superior design of the API FILSTAR XP makes it one of the most reliable canister filters. Its solid construction ensures a trouble free and quiet operation. Strong flow rates and superior filtration media provide optimal filtration results with very easy maintenance.

Filtration Media

API FILSTAR XP comes with efficient media* for powerful 3-stage filtration:

  • Step 1: Filtration pads of 20 ppi and 30 ppi remove debris (mechanical filtration)
  • Step 2: API BIO-CHEM STARS quickly establish the biological filter. They provide 4 times more surface area than ceramic rings for massive bacterial colonization (biological filtration)
  • Step 3: API BIO-CHEM ZORB makes water clean and clear. It removes colors and odors as well as compounds that carbon alone cannot remove

* The exact contents of the box can vary depending on the filter model.
