BIO ECO BASE is perfect for biological filtration. The high porosity of the ceramics provides a very large filter surface for the growth of beneficial bacteria. These bacteria remove ammonia and nitrate from the water. BIO ECO BASE is also characterized by high efficiency in the process of nitrite reduction.
BIO ECO BASE can be used in freshwater and saltwater aquariums, as well as in water holes.
Dimensions: diameter – 40 mm and height – 40 mm.
The open porosity largely ensures excellent water circulation and prevents clogging. Due to the open pores, old dead bio-film is easily washed out of the medium.
Bio Eco-Base has pores with a size of 20-30 μm, i.e. their size is suitable for the settlement and development of beneficial bacteria.
Bio Eco-Base is made of an inert ceramic material and sintered at a temperature of approx. 600°C.
It can be used directly in the main tank, in bucket filters, in the sump or in various type of filters, including suspended filters, spray filters or others.
Bio Eco-Base should be flushed before use in order to remove contamination. Then put it in filter baskets.
