Lifegard Aquatics 1-1/2 inch Bio-mate, 1 gallon Information

The Lifegard Aquatics Bio-Mate Pet Store offers you a simple yet effective accessory that will help give your pets the clean and healthy water they need. Completely energy-efficient, and easy to use, it will certainly be a great addition to the set of accessories aiding you in your task of ensuring the welfare of your sea pals. With so many brands out there selling sub-standard items, this is the best choice you can get.

The product is made from a special thermoplastic material, and it has a spherical shape to provide it maximum dissolvable surface area, as well as a good mixer of water and air. This ball is encased in a plastic and shell that can be positioned anywhere in the tank, and once there, it will perform its purpose excellently. It can enhance biological activity therein, cultivating micro-organisms that de-nitrify the water. It can also allow better gas circulation, dissolving oxygen particles and getting rid of dangerous gases. The accessory does not hinder water flow in any way, and it can function without getting clogged. For your convenience, it can be simply refilled by popping open the shell.

The Lifegard Aquatics Bio-Mate is available in spheres with a diameter of 1 ½ inches, and it is effective in treating 1 gallon of water each. It is also sold in other sizes and color coding for better application. Buy this product now and make sure that your marine pets are well-provided for.

Comments: Not a whole lot to say here, they're balls filled with foam :-) I prefer these to other wet/dry media because the foam core is replaceable.

Comments: As far as Bio balls go, these are very well made and sturdy and are very large. They appear to provide sufficient surface area and are available at a great price point to the consumer. If you are looking for a traditional use for bioballs for a sump or wet/dry filtration system you can't really go wrong with this product.

Comments: We have a 175lb sand filter. Instead of sand we are using the 1.5" media balls. In koi pond applications, sand media does not do a proper job as the filter clogs frequently. Media balls work great. Water flow is constant keeping our waterfall at optimum operation.
