Improve Aquarium Water Quality with Chemical Filter Media
Chemical filtration is the simplest way to remove these potentially dangerous pollutants from fresh and saltwater systems. There is a variety of chemical filter media available. Most chemical media remove specific pollutants from the water column while others are combined to create multi-functional chemical filter media that simplify removal of multiple pollutants.
Zeolite is a mineral-based media with porous composition. It differs from other chemical filter media in that it specifically absorbs and removes ammonia and other nitrogenous compounds from freshwater aquariums. As an added benefit, many forms of zeolite can rapidly reduce large concentrations of ammonia from the water column. Some forms can also be soaked in saltwater to recharge their absorptive abilities for reuse within your aquarium filter. It is available in both natural and synthetic forms. While primarily used for freshwater applications, special zeolite media is also available for marine aquariums.
