An Aquarium is a mini ecosystem in itself, which encloses different type of life forms within its confines. It is therefore, important that the quality of water, its hygiene level, nutrition level, etc., all are at the desired level. Aquarium Filters are one such step towards the maintenance of an aquarium. An Aquarium Filter can strain tiny pieces of metabolic wastes and other water pollutants in an Aquarium. This is called Mechanical Filtration. There also exist Biological Filters, which hold beneficial Nitrifying and Denitrifying Bacteria that help decompose harmful Nitrites & Ammonia, and many other Biological Toxic Wastes present in the tank.
Now, the soul of these filters is Aquarium Filter Media, which is the actual site of filtration in a filter. An Aquarium Filter Media helps filter out all or most of the undesirable substances present in tank water. As a result, the aquarium water is cleaned, and aerated, thereby benefiting the quality of life therein. One such effective Aquarium Filter Media is Bioballs. Bioballs are actually the base on which the Bacterial colonies thrive. Fresh Marine brings to you a wide range of quintessential and effective Bioballs. The ensuing discussion deals with some of the bestsellers.Rainbow Lifegard by Pentair Aquatics.
