Brightwell Aquatics Katalyst Bioreactive Filtration Media, 600 grams Brightwell Aquatics Katalyst Bioreactive Filtration Media, 600 grams


  • Brightwell Aquatics Katalyst Bioreactive Filtration Media provides an ideal colonization substrate and a suitable source of organic carbon to beneficial microbes responsible for uptake of nitrate and phosphate
  • Helps decrease latent organic material, and hence nitrate and phosphate concentrations, in aquaria, greatly simplifying and improving nutrient control relative to methods based solely upon using vodka or other alcohol/sugar solutions as organic carbon sources
  • May be used with MicroBacter7 and/or as part of a low-nutrient approach to aquarium husbandry
  • Improves water clarity through remineralization of latent dissolved organic compounds present in system
  • Safe for use in all freshwater and marine aquaria, including planted and reef systems

Brightwell Aquatics Xport-Bio 1000 grams Brightwell Aquatics Xport-Bio, 1000 grams

  • Brightwell Aquatics Xport-Bio is an Ultra-porous Biological Media with Superior Performance Characteristics
  • Utilizes NanoIntelex Technology to create an enhanced material with vast surface area for colonization by beneficial nitrifying bacteria, resulting in rapid and efficient conversion of ammonia into nitrite and nitrate
  • 1000 grams
  • Xport-BIO is not a chemical filtration media; it must be seeded with appropriate bacteria to begin nitrification. Simply placing Xport-BIO into an established aquarium will slowly seed the media, however seeding with MicroBacter as directed above will significantly decrease cycling time and therefore results in faster results. Seed each 300 g of Xport-BIO used with 40-ml of MicroBacter .
  • The highest colonizable surface area to volume ratio of synthetic biological filtration media available
  • Higher efficiency relative to conventional media results in smaller space requirements to achieve equivalent nitrification
  • May be employed to rapidly decrease ammonia and nitrite concentrations in even the most heavily-stocked aquatic systems
  • May be used in conjunction with Xport-NO3 and Xport-PO4
