Biohome Standard (5kg)


Price per 5kg
Biohome Standard filter media was the first in a line of premium quality sintered glass filter media. It has a long proven record of trouble free use.

Biohome Standard is made from industrial grade materials to ensure a long working life and with a porosity of approx. 42% it has a great usable surface area for bacterial colonisation.

The colonisation of Biohome Standard by beneficial bacteria is very fast, normally between 21-42 days, it recovers fast after the use of medications and can be easily transferred between systems. Complimentary filter starter balls are shipped with each order.

Biohome Standard is an efficient biological filter media and good mechanical filtration must be used prior to it.

It is most suitable for internal, small external, hang-on-back (HOB) and overhead aquarium filters. It may easily be broken up into smaller pieces to fit into smaller filter chambers.

Biohome Standard allows both nitrifying (aerobic) and denitrifying (anaerobic) bacteria to grow on and through its unique structure.

This media is sold by the kilogram. 1 kilogram of media is approximately equal to approx. 1.0 cubic litre.

For best nitrate reduction use approx. 1kg per 100 litres of aquarium water.
