Bacteria Growth Media
The Bacteria growth media is specially designed by Old World AquaFarm. It is a recycled plastic instilled (when activated) with natural organic ingredients. The media promotes the growth of natural bacteria which break down ammonia, nitrites, urea and other products aquatic animals secrete into water during their normal life cycle. It takes about six weeks to completely cycle in the good bacteria growth. The good bacteria converts the Aquatic Animal waste into (Nitrates) fertilizer which the plants thrive on. The plants in turn replenish the oxygen the Aquatic Animals require. The plants also supply food for you and your family. But, best of all, your food will be picked ripe, fresh, with no added food miles, and totally organic healthy food. The media pack comes in two styles. For the DIY'er it is (2) 16" wide x 32" long x 2" thick. And for the PRO 200 System it is 24" wideby 86" long x 2" thick. No other filtration is required for our systems. (However, some people prefer a clarity filter to see their fish swimming.) One Media System is required for the Pro 200 Plant System. Thus the Old World AquaFarm Biological Growth Media package is the last filter you will ever need and requires no cleaning. Each Bacteria Growth Media pack will support up to 300 gallons of Aquatic Animal water with one pound of animals for five gallons of water. This product has a one year warranty for parts.
