Biomotion (1 litre)


Price per litre

Biomotion media was specifically developed for moving bed filters however it can also be used in static filters.

It is the only available moving bed media made from sintered glass and benefits from having plenty of space to move e.g. in a pond filter chamber or the sump of a large aquarium. A larger air pump or small powerhead pump should be used to move the media.

Biomotion can be used either alone or as an addition to existing plastic in a moving bed media to give a “massive performance boost” to your existing moving bed filter from the huge increase in surface area sintered glass has over plastic media.

Biomotion is made from industrial grade materials to ensure a long working life. When fired the Biomotion is coated with montmorillonite clay which gradually wears off when in use and helps condition the water.

The colonisation of Biomotion by beneficial bacteria is very fast. it recovers quickly after the use of medications and can be easily transferred between systems. The accessible 'honeycomb' structure of Biomotion allows both nitrifying (aerobic) and denitrifying (anaerobic) bacteria to grow reducing ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. Complimentary filter starter balls are shipped with each order.

Biomotion 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.

It is most suitable for larger moving bed filters or small DIY aquarium filters if used static.

Biomotion is sold by the litre.

For best nitrate reduction use approx. 1 litre per 100 litres aquarium water and 1litre per 150 litres of pond water.
