Bio-filters are a simple and efficient tool to remove ammonia and nitrites produced in fish waste from system water. At Pentair AES, we carry a wide range of bio-filter media suitable for many different types of filters, including bio-balls, biomatrix pads, filter foam, and more.

For fluidized bed bio-media filters, we offer both lightweight sand filter media and sinking beads, a popular alternative bio-filter media with a lower specific gravity. Bio-balls and porous polymer media work well in bag filters and have a very long useful lifespan. If you use a bioreactor, Sweetwater SWX Bio-Media is specifically designed for use in MBBR systems, offering abundant surface area for bacterial growth and positive buoyancy for continuous movement within the system. We also carry tank and aquarium bio-media accessories, including mesh bags and filter gratings that are designed to support biofilter media.

Ask us if you have any questions about bio-filter media or which type of media is best for your system. Our experts are standing by at 877-347-4788.
