ReOcean Bactrix Bacteria colonies on the internal and external surface areas.
ReOcean Bactrix is a high porosity biological media that provides efficient biofiltration for the removal of nitrogen waste. Bactrix is a porous inorganic solid about 15-25 mm in diameter.
Each litre of Bactrix provides as much surface (>~900 m2) as 200 liters of plastic balls! Plastic bio-materials provide only external surface area, whereas Bactrix provides both external and internal macro porous surface area.
These macropores are ideally sized for the support of nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria.
This allows Bactrix, unlike other forms of bio media, to remove nitrate along with ammonia and nitrite, simultaneously and in the same filter. Bactrix is completely inert and will not breakdown.
It need not be replaced. Since the majority of the bacteria are internal, Bactrix may be rinsed when needed without damaging the filter. Bactrix is compatible with all types of wet or wet & dry filters.
Use 600ml of ReOcean Bactrix for each 200l of water.
Bactrix may be placed in any kind of filters
Bactrix is sufficiently large that no filter bag should be required for most applications.
Bactrix works well in all kinds of filters inclusive of drip tray systems for pond filtrations.
