Product Description

Bio-wheels are suited perfectly to provide biological filtration in koi ponds, water gardens and freshwater or saltwater aquariums. These bio-wheels allow good nitrifying bacteria to grow and colonize on them thereby breaking down harmful ammonia and nitrites in water. This provides filtration, which greatly increases the overall water quality.  Better quality water = healthier fish and other aquatic life. 

An Ideal media for Fluid Bead filters and similar applications that requires a floating, clog resistant media. Unlike many other types of filter media, bio-wheels are low-maintenance and self-cleaning, keeping your pond or water feature healthy with the least amount of effort! Bio-wheels are exceptionally durable, and will last many years in even the harshest environments.  

Bio-wheels have great surface area for their size; for every one cubic foot the surface area is 365 square feet.

Approximately 6,000 bio-wheels equal one cubic foot.

Available Quantities: 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1, 2 or 3 Cubic Ft.

Helpful Hint: Put bio-wheels in a mesh bag for ease of handling when cleaning.
