CerMedia MarinePure Ceramic Biofilter Media
The media’s composition is similar to natural rock formations. MarinePure provides approximately 150,000 sq. Ft per cu. Ft (510 m2/L) of accessible surface area. MarinePure Biofilter Media creates a stable home for a dense population of beneficial bacteria that remove ammonia and nitrites from your aquarium. Some systems will also see a decrease in nitrates. MarinePure Biofilter Media will work in sumps, trickle filters, wet/dry filters, hang on the back filters or directly in the tank.
