The Bacteria House is made of ceramic that has been heat treated at 1300°c for 60hrs. This tremendous amount of heat causes the ceramic to break its internal bonds thereby creating an extremely porous structure that has a much greater surface to allow very large bacteria populations to colonise. Much like the MarinePure balls Bacteria House filtration balls are excellent for housing millions of beneficial bacteria giving them the name "bacteria house".
Bacteria House filtration Blocks are extremely effective in reducing ammonia and nitrate in the water, each 1L of Bacteria House filtration will hold enough bacteria to stabilize 1000L of aquarium water.
Due to the large quantities of tiny holes, mechanical filtration is also achieved. Large organic solids and decaying matter are degraded at a far greater speed than conventional media, and maintain the optimum ecological balance of aquarium.
They are PH neutral making them perfect for all water types and suitable for all filter types, ideal for your canister filter baskets and sumps.
Bacteria house is not made of calcium and as such will not erode and thus does not need maintaining, the bacteria house contains minerals and trace elements which is beneficial to aquarium life.
Emits infrared rays that revitalises water and increases oxygen in water
Very porous (10x of conventional ceramic rings) and allows beneficial bacteria to colonize and break down harmful ammonia and nitrite.
Releases minerals and trace elements to promote coloration in plants/fish
Does not affect pH
Suitable for freshwater fish, shrimps, ponds, planted aquariums and marine
