AQUABIOME Biological Filter

Cost - effective biological filter

Aquabiome has been engineered specifically for ponds and water gardens. Aquabiome provides mechanical and biological filtration in a single housing. Its ability to support dense populations of nitrifying bacteria, its reliability and easy maintenance, makes Aquabiome especially suitable for high density recirculation systems. 

Excellent Nitrification and mechanical filtration.

Hydraulically efficient filter design, balanced slotted laterals to maximize water flow and filtration.

Corrosion resistant and UV stabilised for outdoor installation.

Air assisted hydraulic backwash, saving time and water.

Superior Quality
Aquabiome fibreglass filters embody the latest in fibreglass winding technology

* Maximum fish stocking weight depends on the percentage of body weight fed daily.
• Ornamental fish weight based on feeding rate of 3% of body weight.
• Aquaculture fish weight based on feeding rate of 1% of body weight.

Nitrogen Cycle

The cycle begins when fish eat and then excrete ammonia. Bacteria in the biological filter eats the ammonia and excretes nitrite. Nitrite is also toxic to fish and needs to be removed. Another type of bacteria in the filter eats nitrite and excretes nitrate. Nitrate is non-toxic to fish in small quantities and is used by plants as fertilizer. The entire cycle then repeats itself upon completion.
