Getting The Best From Your Aqua One AquaMode 600 Trickle Filter.

The Aqua One AquaMode 600 comes fitted with a large overhead trickle filter than cannot be beaten is terms of sheer filter performance. Trickle filters culture huge amounts of aerobic filtration bacteria and the Aqua One trickle filters also include excellent activated carbon and foam filter media. Keep this filter running well and you will achieve superb results from the AquaMode 600.

We suggest the following as the best maintenance regime for your Aqua One Aqua Mode 600 Trickle filter:


Check visually to make sure that the filter is flowing well and that the intake strainer isn’t blocked with debris. Check also that the 1c Carbon cartridge isnt blocked.

Four to Six weekly

Clean the filter out, replacing the first stage 1c Carbon and Polymer wool cartridge as it will be choked with waste and debris and cannot be rinsed clean. Rinse the 1S Black biofoam thoroughly in some aquarium water which is then thrown away. Clean the Bio Noodles the same way. Have some Bio Noodles or BioRing Plus on hand and exchange a few pieces for new ones to keep your filter media fresh and the bacteria culture lively.

Six monthly

Exchange the 1S black Biofoam for a new one as these become much more blockage prone over time. Don’t change the foam and the BioNoodles together. As too many ‘good’ bacteria are lost all at once.


Fit a new 1i impeller to maintain performance. Check all pipework and connections for leaks. Consider a new intake strainer and spray bar if yours is very caked up and crusty.   Half an hour spent now means a whole year’s worth of trouble free performance from your Aqua Mode 600.
