Although bacteria will grown just about anywhere, getting a good base of beneficial bacteria means providing adequate surface area and this is a little bit easier with the new Maxspect’s Nano-Tech BioSpheres.
These small spheres have millions of nooks and crannies to provide a bunch of surface area media in a smaller area. According to the company, this unique ceramic media has a cross-cutting surface area that creates an ideal surface for a dense populations of beneficial bacteria that remove ammonia and nitrites from your aquariums water.
These are super flexible — just put these in a sump, a media reactor, trickle filters, wet/dry filters, hang on the back filters or directly in the tank.
They come in two sizes, a 1kg and 2kg box, that retail for $24.99 and $44.99 respectively. There are about 44 spheres per kg that provides 25,575 sq. ft. of surface area.
