BioCeraMAX 600 is a unique contribution designed for biological water filtration in freshwater and marine aquariums, paludariums, aquaterrariums and terrarium pools. It has the form of rolls made of porous ceramic material, which provides a very large filtration area – 600 m2.
How does BioCeraMAX 600 work?
On the internal surface of the pores of BioCeraMAX 600 cylinders placed in the aquarium filter over time, strains of useful nitrifying bacteria from the genera Nitrosomonas and Nitrospira are being settled. These microorganisms use metabolic products: ammonia (Nitrosomonas) and nitrites (Nitrospira) toxic to fish in their life processes. Nitrifying bacteria oxidize ammonia and nitrite to form nitrates, which are much safer for the inhabitants of the aquarium.
Where and when does the BioCeraMAX 600 work?
BioCeraMAX 600 is perfectly suited as a filter bed in canister filters, overflow filters, internal filters with chambers for loose powders (eg TURBOFILTER), sumps, filter chimneys. It can be used in both freshwater and marine aquariums. It is especially recommended for tanks with large fish and lots of fish.
How should I use BioCeraMAX 600?
BioCeraMAX 600 is immediately ready for use and does not require rinsing or any other additional activities. The contents of the packaging should be poured into the filter basket or the filtration chamber. In order to ensure optimal results, it is recommended to place the BioCeraMAX 600 cartridge behind the mechanical filtration cartridges and the chemical filtration cartridges.
One package, i.e. 1 liter of BioCeraMAX 600, is recommended for AQUAEL filters: UNIMAX 150, UNIMAX 250, MIDIKANI 800, MINIKANI 80, MINIKANI 120, ASAP and VERSAMAX. In the case of other filters, one package is recommended for the aquarium about 250 l capacity.
How long does BioCeraMAX 600 work?
The BioCeraMAX 600 cartridge can be used for a very long time without replacing it, but it is subject to slow, gradual wear due to crushing, which reduces the effectiveness of its operation. In order to ensure an optimal effect, it is recommended to replace about one-third of the contribution for a new one every 6-12 months. When cleaning the filter, the cartridge should be rinsed in the water drained from the aquarium.
Do not wash BioCeraMAX 600 in current tap water to prevent its sterilization.
