Vertex Aquaristik, a company that has absolutely exploded onto the aquarium products market, has released their own version of the Bio Pellets. The pelletized carbon source has recently become a very popular aquarium item. The pellets are placed into a media reactor and allowed to tumble gently in the water flow. The polymer-based pellets degrade in the water, providing a source of carbon (i.e. food) to aquarium bacteria. Aerobic and anaerobic bacteria show increased populations as a result of adding the pelletized carbon. Having this increase in bacteria leads to improved biological filtration and water clarity. Additionally, your aquarium will be provided with bacterial plankton to feed filter-feeding organisms and corals.
