Bio Home plus - 5 kg filter media
Bio Home plus - 5 kg filter media
What is BIOHOME?
It is a sintered glass filtration media that houses billions of beneficial bacteria to get rid of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. BIOHOME is by far the most operational and cost effective biological media available. Bacteria clings on better in BIOHOME than any other plastic media. This promotes fast growth and colonisation. It is safe, not harmful to fishes, and does not change mineral balance or pH.
BIOHOME is the most efficient and cost effective biological colonisation media available for nitrobacter, nitrosomonas, and other bacteria which adapt themselves to function in anoxic conditions.
Why do I need BIOHOME?
BIOHOME allows both nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria to grow in a single pellet, effectively getting rid of toxic and prevent green water.
With a proven porosity of 42%, BIOHOME has a usable specific surface area of 7300 sq ft per kg, about the size of 3 basketball courts. Bio-balls has only about less than 200 sq ft per kg. This saves you the amount of space and filter media required to build a biological filter.
– Is compact and allow you to keep more fishes.
– Fuss-free maintenance and reduces the need to change water significantly.
– Promotes vibrant health for all aquatic life. Can be easily transferred from one filter to another.
– REDUCE ALL AQUATIC DISEASES
How do I use BIOHOME?
Marine Environment: 1kg Biohome to 1.5 tons of water
Freshwater: 1kg Biohome to 3 tons of water
With the massive surface area, you can say goodbye to huge and chunky biomats, bioballs, etc. Treating 3 tons of freshwater with 1 kg of BIOHOME, all you need is a very small compartment for biological filtration! (1 kg = 1.25 L)
If you are going to have a high stock loading (a lot of fish in a small area) you should allow approximately 1 cubic centimetre of to 8 cubic centimetres of fish by volume. ‘‘ is another similar product which has carefully chosen trace elements added to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria. , , and are made with higher porosity (10% more) to support more oxygen exchange within the pellet, supporting better biological functions. These are generally larger pellets than .
In our experience we have found the best flow rate to be;
Marine : 10 mm / sec
Fresh : 5 mm / sec
This rate can be increased, however it doesn’t necessarily increase the efficiency of the unit. Optimum efficiency will be attained in zero light levels. However BIOHOME does operate in shaded environment.
What should I take note of?
BIOHOME is not a prefilter and does not function as a mechanical filter. it serves most effectively as a biological filter. Always have a good mechanical filter or prefilter before using BIOHOME.
BIOHOME functions best in the last stage of the filter (last chamber) before water is discharged into the pond. Optimum efficiency is under zero light levels however BIOHOME does operate in shaded environment. Biohome is not a bacterial or chemical additive. BIOHOME provides the maximum possible surface area and void space for natural waste removal using non-toxic, industry grade materials and engineered micro tunnels within the pellets. Porosity extends through the pellet, meaning air can actually be blown through the centre of new pellets by mouth.
