Hugo Kamishi glass Bio Rings
Hugo Kamishi Bio Glass Rings are made of non-toxic, inert materials that promote bacterial growth.
They are made from extremely porous ceramics for maximum surface area to permit large colonies of beneficial bacteria.
Their highly porous hollow design effectively distributes water flow and allows massive colonies of beneficial bacteria to grow on and inside each ring.
The large surface areas on the inside and outside of the ring make the perfect environment for the beneficial bacteria to remove ammonia & nitrite from the aquarium water.
They will not break down in the filter or alter the pH or water hardness.
Composed of a variety of channels & tunnels, the multitude of tiny pores can support these colonies of beneficial bacteria.
An Ideal biological filter media for any filter systems and suitable for both freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
Always rinse in aquarium water and not tap water.
The Nitrogen Cycle
Understanding the nitrogen cycle is an important part of keeping a successful aquarium. The nitrogen cycle is responsible for the biological filtration within the system. It keeps the water free of toxic compounds that are a result of the respiration of the inhabitants, and the decay of any matter such as waste products and uneaten food. When we understand this cycle, we can anticipate situations that may cause damage to this process, and prevent or avoid these situations that may lead to livestock loss
