Sponge Filter Bio-Film Reactor Attachment

  • $ 25.00



Turn your XY or ATI Brand sponge filters (or any sponge filter that can accept a 20mm outside diameter) into a biofilm producing machine.  With this attachment, simply route air line tubing through the unit and onto the sponge filter, attach the biofilter to the top replacing the stock tube 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.  This product will create a self-sustainable food source that will feed your shrimp and increase your 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.
