Biogravel is perfect as a shrimp and plant substrate, media for under gravel filters, internal filters, HOB filters, small canister filters and DIY filters made from ornaments.
Biogravel is an entirely new concept for filtration and is essentially a gravel made from sintered glass which has a wide range of applications. The latest development from Biohome, Biogravel is the ideal substrate for your tanks. It will not increase pH, supports growth of zooplankton and is the perfect playground for shrimp. Having a porosity of approx. 42% it performs at a similar level to the Biohome Standard and Biohome Plus with the added benefit of being small enough to be used in very restricted spaces.
The most obvious place for Biogravel is as a substrate in aquariums which have an under gravel system where it acts as not only a substrate but also an effective filter media too. The Biogravel is easily cleaned using gravel cleaner (if used as substrate) or by vigorous agitation in water drained off during tank maintenance.
For best nitrate reduction use approx. 1kg per 100 litres aquarium water for a normally stocked tank or 1.5kg - 2kg per 100 litres for a heavily stocked tank. As all Biohome media is inert it allows you to raise or lower the pH to suit certain fish species without having a buffering effect.
Biohome Biogravel filter media installation instructions
- Rinse filter media in plain water to remove any fine dust particles.
- Once media is in the filter trays/baskets/mesh bags add the bacteria balls (included in box) on top, these will slowly release millions of beneficial bacteria to properly seed the filter media.
- To clean any particulate matter from the surface of the filter media rinse gently in mature aquarium water.
