Biohome Ultimate Marine is essentially the Mini Ultra with added trace elements to increase bacteria performance and has a porosity of approx. 50%. You can check out the extreme porosity of the Ultimate Marine 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 Ultimate Marine 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 Ultimate Marine will outperform all other filter media in the removal of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
Ultimate Marine 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 Ultimate Marine allows both nitrifying (aerobic) and denitrifying (anaerobic) bacteria to grow on and through it’s unique structure.
Trace elements added include Iron and Manganese which act as a catalyst for bacteria living on and in the media which speeds up waste processing.
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 colouration - this may be due to the water being extremely good quality in a biohome filtered tank.
Due to the higher cost of marine gel filter starter balls only the marine filter upgrade kits ship with complimentary filter starter balls. Marine filter starter balls are available separately in the 'BACTERIA' section of this website.
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. 1.5 - 2kg per 100 litres marine aquarium water.
