FilterPlus is one of the most highly effective types of Bio-Media on the market. It is comprised of a naturally occurring mineral mined and graded right here in the United States! It will never break down in your aquarium and will never need to be replaced. It contains no artificial materials, chemicals, or any other additives. FilterPlus is the only Bio-Media used at the Aquatic Arts facility, where it provides Bio-Filtration to over 150 holding tanks and over 10,000 aquatic animals. We have such confidence in FilterPlus that we do 5 or less ammonia tests per week while caring for over 150 holding tanks! Each 1000g of FilterPlus is enough Bio-Media to filter a heavily stocked 55-75 gallon aquarium, or a medium stocked 100 gallon aquarium. We recommend 75-100g per 10 gallons for medium stock level, and 150-200g per 10 gallons for heavy stock level. FilterPlus can be used with or without media bags, and can usually be added directly to your filter's media chambers. It can be used in almost all types of filters, including canister filters, hang on filters, and even be used as substrate for additional Bio-Filtration. The secret to the amazing Bio-Filtration abilities of FilterPlus is the extremely porous surface area. This provides far more surface area by volume than plastic Bio-Balls or ceramic rings. It also massively outperforms standard filter cartridges. FilterPlus can save you a significant amount of money on replacement Bio-Filters, as it never needs to be replaced. FilterPlus is most recommended for canister filters, where it can usually be added directly to the media chambers. Due to the large size and low permeability of the individual pieces, FilterPlus can house anaerobic bacteria, which remove nitrates from the water! This bacteria can take time to establish, but once it does it can dramatically reduce the need for water changes due to rising nitrates.
