MAXI Marine media has a extremely porous structure with additional trace elements, including iron and manganese to better support beneficial bacteria in a marine environment. The trace elements are fused into the structure of this media and are there to enhance bacterial processes only, not to alter water chemistry although users have commonly reported a marked improvement in coral health and coloration – this may be due to the water being extremely good quality in a Biohome filtered tank.
Complimentary Filter Starter Balls (1/4 Bag per Kilogram) are shipped with each order. The media 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.
MAXI Marine 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.
