Easy-Life (fluid filter medium) ffm can be used in any aquarium and it truly is the most innovative Water Conditioner on the market with over 30 benefits! It can be used with:

  • Planted aquariums
  • Discus aquariums
  • Malawi Aquariums

With the list of benefits almost as long as your arm, let me detail below some of the major one's.

Brighter colours and improved appetit

Fish become a lot healthier when Easy-Life Fluid Filter Medium is present. They will have an improved appetite and become more active. The fish will show their colours much better than before. The loss of appetite is often related to an intestine problem, which usually finds its root in stress. Easy-Life Fluid Filter Medium tackles these problems very effectively.

Easy fishkeeping

Sensitive fish like Apistogramma and Discus are clearly troubled by even the smallest amounts of chemicals. Easy-Life Fluid Filter Medium absorbs all those unwanted elements.


The product improves the water quality immensely and stabilizes it.

Water: Air for Fish

Easy-Life Fluid Filter Medium removes toxic substances from the water.


It will purify the water completely and make it crystal clear.


An outstanding water quality is imperative to prevent fish diseases and to let all living beings thrive without any problems. Another effect of this product is that it continually adds small amounts of oxygen to the water, which is one of the key elements to keep the water quality high and stable during relocation. What clean, fresh air means to people, clean water is of the highest importance for all water inhabitants.

Growth enhancement of plants


Easy-Life Fluid Filter Medium fertilises plants. It brings essential minerals and trace elements into the water. Furthermore, it works in such a way that more nutrients, that already are present in the water column, become available to plants.


An additional reason for a better growth of plants can be found in the fact that the product induces an enormous increase of microbiological activity in the tank.


The plants will benefit from this, especially in the areas around their roots. Because of the higher microbiological activity in the bottom of the aquarium, the bottom material (e.g. sand or gravel) will not degenerate and become rotten anymore. In fact it will be rejuvenated.


Break down of nitrite


Nitrite is very toxic for fish and when a new aquarium is set up, the levels of nitrite tend to rise rapidly. The filter is not mature enough to breakdown this particular compound. By using Easy-Life Fluid Filter Medium, the presence of nitrite in the aquarium often can not be detected anymore. Apparently the biological activity is the water is big enough to remove nitrite. In other cases however nitrite will be present, but by the fast growth of bacteria due to Easy-life Fluid Filter Medium, the level of nitrite will drop rapidly after days. This way it shortens the maturing of the aquarium dramatically.


Chlorine and chloramine


Some areas have higher levels of chlorine / chloramine in their tap water. Easy-Life Fluid Filter Medium will need some time to absorb chlorine(compounds). At concentrations of more than 4 ppm Cl : wait about 8 hours to give the product the chance to absorb these particular contaminants.


Here's an overview of some of the other activities it performs:




  • Makes fish more lively, they eat more and get vibrant colours
  • Reduces stress
  • Makes fish recover more quickly and develop better physical resistance
  • Prevents and cures bacterial infections (such as fin rot and infected wounds)
  • Provides efficient protection for the mucous skin
  • Wounds heal more quickly
  • Neutralizes harmful bacteria
  • Fish recover more quickly after medical treatment
  • Stimulates breeding
  • Fry grow twice as quickly
  • Considerably reduces the quarantine time
  • Ensures a considerably reduced loss of fish during long distance transport




  • makes the water crystal clear
  • removes heavy metals (e.g. Copper, Zinc, Cadmium)
  • removes ammonium, chlorine, chloramine and other harmful compounds (chlorine compounds only in fresh water)
  • removes harmful bacteria
  • absorbs residue of medication and chemicals
  • Removes nasty odours
  • Counteracts the formation of algae
  • continually adds oxygen to the water
  • Greatly improves and stabilizes the water quality
  • protects against sudden alterations in the water quality
  • Stimulates the growth of useful bacteria
  • Improves the performance of the biofilter
  • Accelerates cycling of new aquariums (usually no nitrite peak)




  • Better growth and a more vibrant colour

This product is as good as it's rave reviews. Since I changed to easy life filter medium my danios are even livelier, my shrimp seems much happier and hides away less, my plants have a new vitality about them and my water is crystal clear. Get some, you won't regret it.

I've used Easy-Life FFM for a number of years and can vouch for its effectiveness - it does exactly what the makers claim for it. Together with EasyCarbo and Profito I find it's all I need to keep my tank in first class condition.

I use to use Hagen Cycle on a regular basis and could never understand why my ammonia readings were so high especialy when I only had 12 platys in a 180 liter tank. Since I discovered this product and stopped using Hagen cycle, my ammonia readings have been at an all time low and my tank ecology has thrived. Really good product accompanied by excellent service with competetive pricing from Aqua Essentials whom I also buy other products from. Highly recommend the brand and highly recommend Aqua Essentials

A lot of claims made.Just added lets see if it works.

Ask a question about this product
hi do you use this every day or is it used to maturing a tank for fish.


One of the key features is that it enhances and stabilizes the water quality in micro-water systems like aquariums and ponds. Easy-Life has proven again and again that that is possible in a completely natural way, without needing any chemicals or bacteria.

Important remark

Easy-Life improves and stabilizes the water quality very effectively. Using this product, the frequency of water changes can drop dramatically. Some aquarists haven't done any water changes or filter maintenance for longer periods of time, without any problems. However we really recommend you to perform a regular water change every month and regularly take care of your filter system.


Step 1: Determine the correct dosage                  

- Easy-Life for the first time : normal dosage (see above) - For maintenance : half to normal dosage monthly - Water changes : normal dosage for the amount of newly added water

Step 2: Shake the bottle very well and add immediately - filters

First shake the bottle very well, and then add the product immediately after. You don't need to switch off the UV water clearer and/or protein skimmer during or after Easy-Life is added to the water.

Step 3: Turbid effect & clearing times

Easy-Life fluid filter medium is a very powerful product. You can actually see the product working in the water. After the addition of Easy-Life the water goes cloudy, which means that the product is working. The more contaminants are present in the water, the longer this turbidity will last. Thus the period of time that the water needs to clear up, is a very good indication of the water quality. Anyway, the turbidity will disappear after some time and is of course completely harmless.

Fresh water aquariums

The normal clearing time for aquariums is 4 - 16 hours. Heavily polluted aquariums can prolong this clearing time up to 48-72 hours.

Hi i used this once before and was pleased with the results but i have not used it since it ran out because i have started using purigen in my external filter.I'd like to start using this again as i've recently noticed a baby molly in my planted tank and it claims to help fry grow better.If i added it to my planted tank again would the purigen have any effect on it?By which i mean would it strip it out of the water?


quite possibly so it may not be an option for you

What effect does it have on the internal filter will it remove the effective microorganisms that have colonised the filter foam and other filter media ie bio rings in my fluval spec tank


The opposite. It adds good bacteria!

is it safe to use with acadia poly filter foam or doeas the polyfilter strip out the easy life


It would probably strip it

is it ok to use with a carbon filter? Do I have to turn my internal filter off when I dose with it? Thanks


remove carbon filters in a planted aquarium. They absorb a lot including the good stuff!
