Siporax 25 mm media.
Siporax media can be used in virtually any filter but is particularly effective in sump and trickle towers. Siporax can be used for freshwater aquariums, marine fish / reef aquariums and ponds.
1 liter sera siporax 25 mm provides as much settling area for bacteria as, approximately 34 liters of clay filter material.
A sediment pre filter (floss etc) is required to prevent coarse and large particles from entering the biofilter.
Siporax provides bacteria an extremely large amount of open-pored tunnel structures. This allows an ideal supply of the bacteria with nutrients and a smallest amount of water. There are oxygen-poor conditions within the tunnels. This makes the bacteria crack nitrate to get enough oxygen. Consequently, they continuously break down nitrate, and the water remains low in nitrate, as well as maintaining a fully efficient full bio logical cycle.
Please note an effective nitrate can take from a few weeks to several months to become active.
Here at Devotedly Discus we have used Siporax in our Discus trickle towers for over 20 years and more recently in our Marine fish system sumps.
