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.

    I first bought Bio Home Ultimate Media off Ebay from the Pond Guru. That was very high shipping costs and it took two weeks to receive. Watching his videos I heard about GreatWave in the US. As soon as I saw they had another supply I bought 5 KG. This is by far the best media I’ve ever used and will never use anything else again.

    Been using Biohome ultimate for six months in my gold fish tank with a hang on the back filter. Even with limited media space this product kept my levels low. Recently upgrade my filtration to a large canister filter for increased mechanical filtration, and being able to use even more of this great product! Best part is the customer service and fast delivery, thank you.

    After watching PondGuru on YouTube and the detailed information he gave about Biohome Ultimate I made my first purchase of the product. I placed it in my Marineland 330 HOB filter in my 100 gallon community tank and 3 other filters in various other fish tanks. That first purchase was received on October 25, 2014, it is now January 16, 2015.

    I am happy to report that ammonia, nitrites, and nitrate all read zero!! I’ve never seen a product that could actually reduce nitrate levels. That to me was absolutely taboo. The only thing I knew to do to reduce nitrates was regular weekly water changes. That is quite a job when you have over 180 gallons of water stretched across 4 different tanks. Now I don’t feel as pressed to do my water changes on an exact day. I have wiggle room which is amazing. I only do water changes now to elimate mulm build up and loss of mineral content.

    This product is absolutely with out a doubt the best media out there and I will not use anything but this!! On top of that Don Chamberlain is very quick to respond to any request and by far surpasses any customer service I’ve ever seen. GreatWave is awesome and so is PondGuru! I wouldn’t know half the things I know now without his detailed videos of the nitrogen cycle and many other fish related facts. Thanks to you both for helping me help my little fishy friends! More fish lovers should know about this product…

    Great service, fast shipping, and very competitive pricing. I definitely recommend Great Wave Engineering.
    I received my order of BioHome Ultimate filter media 2 days after placing my order. Great Wave had the best pricing I have found for this product.
    When the package arrived, it had an instructions page included and a nice note thanking me for my order, both of which were appreciated.
    I have not tried BioHome products before, but have heard very good things. I am going to add the filter media to my system this weekend and will post another review in a few weeks, once I know how it affects my nitrate levels.

    Purchased a house with a 125 built in the wall freshwater tank. I thought it looked alittle dirty but once we moved in I learned all about ammonia, nitrates, and why algae was growing faster than a race car in this tank. (Never owned an aquarium before.) So with massive web researching, purchasing cleaning tools and testing kits, I went to work. The tank finally went to 0 ammonia and from off the charts nitrates to a steady 80. Just couldn’t seem to get the nitrates down more than 60 to 80. When I saw several of the Pondguru videos I learned my Eheim canister was set up wrong so I ordered the ultimate media. When it came in I cleaned out the canister and left one small bag of media that had been in there and placed foams and 2 pounds of ultimate. I couldn’t believe it….in 2 weeks my nitrates were down to 5. I had never had a five, and pretty much tested every day ammonia and nitrates since moving into the house since I was working on getting the tank cleaned up. I have since made a moving bed filter with ultimate media in a fake rock formation and now my nitrates are 0 to barely showing color. So, this stuff works. I will not use any other media.
