ADA Bio Rio is the basic of biological filtration. Biological filtration starts quickly after the initial setup, due to the live bacteria adhered on the ADA Bio Rio. It is mainly made of pumice stone with a porous surface, which is ideal environment for beneficial bacteria to colonize. It also supports a long stable filtering activity. The functions of filtration performed for removal of contaminants in water is largely divided into physical, chemical and biological filtrations. Aquarium water contaminants such as organic matters and nitrogen are physically and chemically removed by filter media and then finally decomposed by filtration bacteria, protozoa and other microorganisms. To achieve effective filter functions, it is necessary to promote rapid growth of filter bacteria, protozoa and other microorganisms. The filter media such as ADA Bio Rio adopt the material and structure conducive to the bacterial growth. To further stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria, you may transplant a small amount of filter media from another fully-functioning filter and add ADA Bacter 100 to the aquarium. The organic acid contained in ADA Bacter 100 nurtures the beneficial bacteria in a new aquarium and gives them a boost. Promote the growth of filter bacteria to establish a successful filtration.
