Ceramic Bio Rings 500g pack

Ceramic rings are designed to have an outer part that has lots of small holes, or pores, and a central hole that goes through the entire thing. This way, water not only runs over the ceramic rings but through them as well.

Important: Ceramic rings do not filter your water. It’s the beneficial bacteria that live in these rings that do the filtering. Any new ceramic rings you add to your tank will not have any bacteria on them. Properly cycling your tank will encourage beneficial bacteria to grow on your ceramic rings.

What are ceramic rings used for in your aquarium?
If you think back to the nitrogen cycle, you will remember just how important nitrifying bacteria are.

This beneficial bacteria removes ammonia and nitrites (harmful chemicals) from your aquarium. These chemicals naturally build up inside your aquarium, and if the bacteria in your tank don’t remove them, then your fish will eventually die. As you see, these beneficial bacteria are pretty important.

Well, these bacteria need a place to live. Ceramic rings offer the perfect home for the beneficial bacteria in your aquarium.

You see, beneficial bacteria need a surface to cling to. The more surface that is available, the more bacteria that your filter media can hold.

Ceramic rings increase their surface area through tiny little pores.

Denitrifying bacteria.

These bacteria eat nitrates and will only survive where there is no oxygen present.

Denitrifying bacteria live deep inside rock, ceramic and other porous materials, where oxygen cannot reach them. You won’t find this bacteria in plastic or foam filter media.

However, just because denitrifying bacteria help to combat nitrates, it doesn’t mean that you can skip water changes.

Using ceramic rings couldn’t be easier! Simply add them to your aquarium filter.

Next, you want to add the ceramic rings to your filter. And, the location is important!

You want your ceramic rings to sit after your mechanical filtration. Sponges, foam, filter floss, etc. should be the first thing that water passes through on its journey through your aquarium filter.

By placing mechanical filtration first, it catches any large particles such as fish poop, dead leaves and uneaten food, preventing your ceramic rings from gunking up.

Similarly, any chemical filtration, such as activated carbon or zeolite should be placed after your ceramic rings.

Important: Ceramic rings need to be kept submerged underwater at all times. The bacteria that live on the rings cannot survive out of water.
