From the large Aquaculture industry to the home hobbyist, Bio-Bale™ is the filter medium of choice for professionals. Simple in concept, Bio-BaleBio-Bale's™ owes its extreme effectiveness to its high surface area versus volume and its unique surface texture. With 250 square feet of surface area per cubic foot and 33 square feet per gallon, Bio-Bale™ cannot be matched. Bio-Bale™ is produced from one continuous piece of F.D.A. approved, non-toxic plastic designed specifically for CPR. Bio-Bale™ is measured precisely by computer to achieve a consistent surface area.
Effectiveness—In use, Bio-Bale™ has three advantages that make it superior to any other filter media:
SURFACE AREA—Bio-Bale™ allows a greater volume of fish for any given tank size than any other media on the market today. Its large surface area and high water flow reduce toxic ammonia concentrations quickly.
SURFACE TEXTURE—Bio-Bale's™ porous surface texture and optimum void space allows for greater water adhesion, resulting in rapid bacteria growth, even at high flow rates! Water shear is not a problem. The outstanding capillary action of Bio-BaleTM insures a wetted surface on both sides of the filter medium.
VERSATILITY—Bio-Bale's™ unique structure allows it to be used in any size or shape biological filter, making it ideal for custom or commercial filters. Because it is actually a single continuous strip of inert plastic, cleaning and handling it is easy.
