JBL has brought out its answer to algae and high nitrate levels in tanks – a new biological filter material.

JBL BioNitrat Ex bio balls can be used in internal or external filters and degrade naturally over time. A spokesman said: “It becomes smaller and smaller as time goes by until it has disappeared. Combatting algae and the nitrate breakdown has never been easier!”

With a diameter of 20cm, the bio balls comprise connected filter chambers which optimise the formation of a biofilm on the surface, leading to effective break down of nitrate.
