The name says it all. Biohome Ultimate Media is the ultimate media for canister, HOB and sump filters.

1 kg occupies about 72 cu in. To see how much your filter requires return to the Home page and click on the link at the top, “How Much Do I Need”.

Biohome Ultimate is identical to Mini with the addition of trace elements, including iron and maganese, to support beneficial bacteria growth. Bacteria growth in Ultimate is very fast to control ammonia and nitrite.

Complimentary Filter Starter Balls (1/4 bag per kg)  are shipped with each order to speed filter maturity. It recovers quickly after the use of medications.

Biohome allows both nitrifying (aerobic) and denitrifying (anaerobic) bacteria to grow on and through it’s unique structure. This allows it to also control nitrates. Check the Rules of Thumb for Nitrate Reduction to estimate how much you’ll need to reduce the nitrates in your pond or tank.

Ultimate Media is a biological filter media and good mechanical filtration must be provided to insure the water passing through it does not contain any debris that might clog it.

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.

    Biogravel, I used it as substrate for my eco bowl. With no filter, the water remains crystal clear. I wish I had known about Biohome sooner. It’s quite interesting how crucial media can be for an aquatic environment.

    I have an FX6 filter and had a problem with nitrate reduction. After three months of struggling and changing water every day, I found out the issue wasn’t with Biohome but with the FX6 itself. While it’s a great filter, it doesn’t have enough room for media. In a bare-bottom glass tank, there’s not enough space for bacteria to grow. Last month, I added a HOB filter and more Ultimate Media, and I’ve seen a massive improvement. So, if you have a bare-bottom tank, whether you’re using an FX4 or FX6, you need additional space for more media. The built-in space just isn’t enough.
