What are the benefits of using Bioballs as a filter media?

Bioballs are a highly effective and durable biological filter media. They provide a large surface area (122.6 square cm per ball) for beneficial bacteria to grow and colonize. This helps maintain a healthy aquatic environment by breaking down harmful waste products. Bioballs do not break down like traditional filter media options, providing years of trouble-free use without the need for replacement.

How do Aquascape BioBalls help maintain dissolved oxygen levels in the water?

Aquascape BioBalls feature a unique paddle wheel design that aids in breaking up water flow. This process helps to de-gas the water and maximise dissolved oxygen levels, promoting a healthier environment for fish and plants.

Is the included media net necessary for using the Bioballs?

While the Bioballs can be used without the media net, the included net with drawstring makes it easier to contain the Bioballs and simplifies the cleaning process. The media net prevents the BioBalls from dispersing throughout your filtration system and can be easily removed for maintenance.

How often do the Bioballs need to be replaced?

Unlike traditional biological filter media, Bioballs are designed to last for years without needing replacement, providing trouble-free use. Regular maintenance checks and cleaning will help prolong the life of the Bioballs.

Can the Aquascape BioBalls be used in both freshwater and saltwater aquariums?

Yes, Aquascape BioBalls are suitable for use in both freshwater and saltwater aquariums. They can effectively support the growth and colonization of beneficial bacteria in various aquatic environments.

How do I clean the Bioballs when needed?

To clean the Bioballs, remove the media net containing the balls from your filtration system. Gently rinse the Bioballs using non-chlorinated water, such as water from your aquarium or pond. This will remove debris without destroying the beneficial bacteria colonies. After rinsing, simply place the media net with the Bioballs back into your filtration system.
