Neo Media Premium Pure by Aquario is a high quality filter medium for biological filtration in aquariums. Conventional filter balls have an average surface area of approx. 500 m²/l and filter rings even only 270 m²/l. The innovative texture, which is characterised by the fractional cylindric shape, offers a highly structured surface with an exceptional 3.200 m²/l and pores of varying sizes between 1.000 µm ~ 2 µm. The larger pores of up to 1.000 µm allow a very good water flow through the filter medium into the deepest interior. Therefore, it offers nitrifying bacteria (size 1 ~ 1,5 µm) an optimum supply of oxygen in addition to the particularly large colonisation surface. These bacteria are very important for water quality, as they effectively remove ammonium and nitrite. The various pore sizes allow the possibility for a considerable number of other bacteria and other microbes to coexist safely.
During the development of the Neo Media Premium, special attention was paid to creating a new type of continuous pore structure. Part of the 5-step manufacturing process is finishing at high temperatures, which ensures good strength. In addition, the pores are kept at this temperature level for a very long time in order to unify their quality.
Most of the filter media available on the market have alkaline properties. However, Neo Media Premium Pure is a truly neutral filter material. Therefore, Neo Media Premium Pure does not increase the pH value of a slightly acidic aquarium, nor does it lower the pH value of a slightly alkaline aquarium. It is suitable for all types of fish tanks, whether fresh or seawater based. Aquatic plants, shrimps, South American fish, cichlids and corals also find optimal conditions here.
