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 biomedia suitable for many different types of filters, including bio barrels, bio-filter media pads, filter foam, and more.
Biological filter media like bio-barrels work well in bag filters and have a very long 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 biomedia accessories, including mesh bags designed to support your bio-filter media.
Ask us if you have any questions about biomedia or which type is best for your system. Our experts are standing by at 407-543-1792.
