For crystal clear water in freshwater and marine aquariums
Sera Siporax Professional Mini is a highly effective, fully biological filter medium for achieving crystal clear water in aquariums or ponds. Suitable for all internal, external, trickle and pond filters.
The structure of Sera Siporax Professional is open pored, three dimensional and functional. This structure allows the formation of very effective biofilms that grow into the pores and coat their walls. The pores have the ideal size for ensuring long term water flow and supply of the bacteria. The biofilm also breaks down nitrate (denitrification) deep within the pore structure where oxygen levels are lower.
Not only nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria grow in the biofilm of Sera Siporax Professional, but also ones that break down organic matter. Dying bacteria therefore do not clog the pores but are broken down biologically. The biofilm grows and shrinks according to water pollution and thus adapts to the requirements. Sera Siporax Professional is therefore the only filter material that cleans itself biologically. The pore structure is perfect for being settled by bacteria.
Due to the special pore structure, Sera Ssiporax Professional develops its own ideal water current. It can therefore be used in filters with high and low flow rates, and in trickle filters.
Higher performance is not possible
Powerful filter material is required for crystal clear water and unobjectionable water parameters. sera siporax Professional with its new name (previously sera siporax) and its new packaging is exactly the right choice due to its consistency. It provides an open pored and three-dimensional tunnel and pore structure. It allows the formation of particularly powerful biofilms that grow into the tunnels and pores and cover their walls.
Not only nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria multiply within the siporax biofilms, but also those that break down organic substances. Dying bacteria therefore do not clog the pores. Until now, sera siporax Professional is the only biologically self cleaning filter medium.
It ensures the supply of the bacteria due to its functional tunnel structure. It furthermore develops its own optimal water current, so there is no problem using it in fast flux, slow flux and trickle filters.
For comparison: Compared to clay filter materials, sera siporax Professional achieves 34 times as much breakdown performance. Simple filter media consisting of ceramic or clay tubes usually have a closed surface – without an internal tunnel or pore structure. Bacteria can thus settle only on the outside. Higher filter material requirements are the consequence.
It is particularly convenient that aquarists and pond keepers can immediately start biological pollutant breakdown due to the sera filter biostart sold in combination. The included purification bacteria are simply poured onto the filter medium and settle optimally. The performance vs. price ration of sera siporax Professional is thus unsurpassed.
Important: Fish enthusiasts should only concentrate on the performance parameters when purchasing filter material. The consistency is the deciding criteria for this. It does not equal effective filtration when a manufacturer declares a large material surface. Those who choose the filter medium only by price also come to a false conclusion. If there is insufficient performance, increased maintenance effort by more frequent water changes and, correspondingly, higher water conditioner requirements must be expected. This also causes higher costs.
It is always worth deciding on the filter material to buy by its performance – even if quality of course has its price.
