Japanese Crystal Bio Media
Crystal Bio is an extremely lightweight “shower” media, available at a fraction of the cost of existing “shower” media but offering improved results
Bacteria living on all submerged biological filter media will multiply and colonise the media at an improved and faster rate if oxygenated.
This is why shower filters are the best form of filtration for koi ponds, the shower media, in this case Crystal Bio is used in a Shower Filters.
Every piece of Crystal Bio has a protected area or static zone designed to be the perfect environment for micro animals, not just bacteria. Once colonised each piece of Crystal Bio will contain millons of these micro animals, all filtering many thousands of times their own volume every minute, searching for their food source. These micro animals will feed on small particles such as, fish waste, dead bacteria, algae and organic matter.
By using Crystal Bio on your Koi pond today you will see the benefits of sparkling healthy water, high in oxygen content with low BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand).
The surface area of crystal Bio is massive, up to 10 times the surface area of some media
