Biohome Mini Ultra is a larger more porous version of the proven Biohome Standard media. It has a porosity of approx. 50%. You can check out the extreme porosity of the Mini Ultra media yourself by touching just the tip of a piece media to the surface of some water. You’ll be amazed at how fast the water is drawn up the entire length.
Biohome Mini Ultra media is made from industrial grade material to ensure a long working life. Long working life and reliability are hallmarks of all Biohome products and used correctly Biohome Mini Ultra media will outperform all other trickle tower and shower media in the removal of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. Complimentary filter starter balls are shipped with each order.
Mini Ultra is an efficient 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 and reduce efficiency.
It is most suitable for external canister filters, overhead filters, aquarium sumps, and shower / trickle filters.
Biohome Mini Ultra media allows both nitrifying (aerobic) and denitrifying (anaerobic) bacteria to grow on and through it’s unique structure.
This media is sold by the kilogram. 1 kilogram of media is approximately equal to 1.25 cubic litres.
For best nitrate reduction use approx. 1kg per 100 litres aquarium water and 1kg per 150 litres of pond water.

Long review please read though ________________________________ I bought a kilo of biohome mini ultra a while ago. Before adding my water parameters were Ammonia low above 0 though strips would still colour green ish Nitrite low above 0 though strips would still colour yellow Nitrate 100 Stock 4 guppy 4 albino Cory 5 harlequin 4 tetra On adding biohome within a couple of weeks nitrate reduced by half. And nitrite reduced as well. I wasn't sure if the biohome was having an effect of it the water was cycling and it would have reduced anyway... However just recently the tank pretty much cracked and I lost all the water in the 22 litre tank. Lost just 1 tetra. Managed to keep some of the water to put into new tank... about 1 litre and I transferred the foams. But not the powerhead (Enclosed Sump system ) Having pretty much started again temp 10 l tank new filter and adding all the the fish into a 10l with brand new filter and some old foams I pretty much expected ALL the fish to die as there was no cycled water. I just poured in COLD tap water tap safe and the biohome and about 50 of pond gurus bio gel balls 3 weeks on I bought a new 40l with 12 more fish. 6 guppy 6tetra and the previous stock 3 weeks on in new 40litre tank ammonia nil Nitrite nil Nitrate 50 From the start using the 10 l I was testing every few days nitrate, ammonia, nitrite low .... When I transferred to the 40 litre and bought more fish I thought there was something wrong with the test strips as nil ammonia and nil nitrate in the new 40 was unusual, I was expecting to see something !! I even bought a different brand test kit to make sure. I am amazed at how biohome media has managed to cycle the tank in less then 3 weeks. And how many fish I could store in the 10l (11 fish about 25cm worth) I personally think all aquarium tanks sold should include BIOHOME. There really is nothing better. Richard from pond guru is also very honest with his advice and only sells what he thinks you need. I was going to buy a tube filter kit as my new aquarium doesn't have a sump so I just put the old biohome In water bottle with air line. PondGuru was honest and said no real need. Water parameters all good. Got to love the honest advice and excellent product.
