Why do we need foams
Filter foams are mechanical media and are the simplest of the filtration options . The mechanical media collects the waste . It becomes your job as the aquarist to remove the foams . If the foams are not changed this could lead to them rotting and could lower your water quality.
The Filter foams will trap fine and coarse debris , uneaten food , fish waste and therefore reduce the production of nitrogenous waste . This will , in turn help to maintain good water conditions and ensure your aquarium thrives.
