Comments: Not a whole lot to say here, they're balls filled with foam :-) I prefer these to other wet/dry media because the foam core is replaceable.

Comments: Exactly what you would expect. Plastic bio balls filled with ceramic beads which will hold all of that wonderful nitrafying bacteria. Fits well in the sump and does perform. Helped reduce my nitrates down to 0.

Comments: As far as Bio balls go, these are very well made and sturdy and are very large. They appear to provide sufficient surface area and are available at a great price point to the consumer. If you are looking for a traditional use for bioballs for a sump or wet/dry filtration system you can't really go wrong with this product.

Comments: We have a 175lb sand filter. Instead of sand we are using the 1.5" media balls. In koi pond applications, sand media does not do a proper job as the filter clogs frequently. Media balls work great. Water flow is constant keeping our waterfall at optimum operation.
