Bio-Chem Stars® - 10 count - for fresh and salt water:
- Grows massive colonies of beneficial bacteria
- Provides more growing area than plastic balls, foams or undergravel filters
- Advanced polymer material has optimal pore size for maximum oxygen and water transfer
- 10 stars support up to a 50 U.S. gallon aquarium
Bio-Chem Stars are a biological filtration medium that provides a substrate for the optimal growth of beneficial bacteria. Their internal pore structure is formed under a patented process that creates a 50-70 micron internal pore network. This pore size is optimal for the growth of beneficial bacteria, including nitrifying bacteria that remove toxic ammonia and nitrite. It also allows the best oxygen and water transfer through the star, which keeps bacterial colonies healthy and active. Because of this complete internal colonization, Bio-Chem Stars are the most efficient biological filter medium available for use in API Power Filters.
Because Bio-Chem Stars do not break down or clog, they may be used indefinitely. Continuous water flow is necessary to maintain living colonies of bacteria. Use Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Test Kits to monitor water quality weekly.
