Innovative filter media balls enhance biological activity, aeration, and now, even more. Improved BioMate Solid Balls create the ideal environment for beneficial bacteria to efficiently process harmful ammonia and nitrite. Filled Media Balls utilize innovative media-in-media design to do the job of two filter media. Perfect when space is limited. Outer shell provides site for beneficial bacteria, and internal media provide additional mechanical, chemical, or biological filtration. Pre-rinse these media balls before using and layer different media balls in wet/dry, canister, or corner box filters for superior filtration. Ceramic, Carbon, and Foam-filled Balls can be opened to replace media inside. Choose from Solid, Carbon-Filled, Foam-Filled, or Ceramic-Filled.
Mechanical filtration can greatly improve the health of most aquariums, and is also important for the efficiency of your biological filtration. The process is simple: mechanical media strains solid debris.
Biological filtration is the action of bacteria breaking down dangerous ammonia, converting it to nitrite, and then converting nitrite to less toxic nitrate. This article discusses how the process works.
