Standalone Bio-Film Reactor for shrimp tanks

  • $ 25.00


This version of our Bio-Film reactor works completely on its own attached using suction cups allowing for easy attachment to the glass.  The bottom of the reactor is hand assembled with a 316 grade stainless steel mesh guard to prevent shrimp babies from getting into the reactor. 

All you need to do is attach air line tubing into the unit and put the filter in place using the suction cups, and you're set!  The biofilm reactor will start to mature with nitrifying ("cycling") biofilm on the white media. Once biofilm starts to grow on the media, the tumbling motion created by the air will knock biofilm clusters off of media as it "self-cleans", which will release the excess biofilm into the aquarium.  

Shrimp are low level organisms and their diet revolves around the consumption of biofilms. While this reactor cleans the water, it will create a self-sustainable food source that will feed your shrimp and increase your overall baby survival rate .  The filters primary function will help create a strong and reliable cycle in your aquarium.  This reactor will keep your ammonia levels low and stable.  It is recommended that this filter be used as a secondary or backup filter as it does not have any mechanical filtration properties (only biological filtration)
