Biohome Ultimate is most suitable for canister filters, overhead filters, large HOB and small shower / trickle filters. It has added trace elements to increase bacteria performance and has a porosity of over 50%.
You can check out the extreme porosity of the Ultimate 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.
As the name suggests Biohome Ultimate is the pinnacle of filter media design and strikes a perfect balance of size, strength, surface area accessibility and specific trace elements which ensure that it will outperform every other filter media for the removal of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
Biohome Ultimate is made from industrial grade material to ensure a long working life. Long working life and reliability are hallmarks of all Biohome products.
Biohome Ultimate allows both nitrifying (aerobic) and denitrifying (anaerobic) bacteria to grow on and through it’s unique structure. Trace elements added include: Titania, Alumina, Ferric Oxide, Lime, Magnesia, Potash, Soda, Phosphorus Pentoxide, Chromium Sesquioxide, Manganic Oxide, Zirconia, Hafnia, Zinc Oxide, Barium Oxide, Strontia, Stannic Oxide, Sulphur Trioxide. The trace elements are fused into the structure of this media and are there to enhance bacterial processes only, not to alter water chemistry.
For best nitrate reduction use approx. 1kg per 100 litres of aquarium water for a normally stocked tank. Heavily stocked systems can take between 1.5kg - 2kg per 100 litres to achieve full cycle filtration (reduction in nitrate).
Biohome Ultimate 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.
