BIOHOME Filteration Media (at a glance)
BcAquatics wants to present an exclusive bio filteration media that has been the secret of public aquariums and professional fish farms thoughout Europe and Asia. What sets BIOHOME apart from other traditional bio filteration media is that BIOHOME has the greatest surface area which allows for more room for benefical bacteria to grow and protect the tank.
BIOHOME will also last much longer than traditional ceramic rings. BIOHOME comes in two forms, one being standard which is effective for established tanks. The other form is Plus, which contains nutrients that help with new tanks (cycling). BIOHOME was created with professional fishkeepers in mind. A must for discus and high maintance fishes. It works for both fresh and salt water and is now avalible to the public, hobbiest of all species, and any and all fishkeepers.
Biohome is effective as it is made from sintered glass. This makes it so that biohome has hundreds of little tunnels that is really surface area which provide the benefical bacteria room to grow. You want the benefical bacteria to help stablize the aquarium. The following diagram illistrates the benefical bacteria growth in BIOHOME.
Since Biohome has so much surface area, it is much more absorbent than traditional ceramic rings and other bio filteration media.The follow image is an example of how porous they are. Note how much liquid is soaked deep into the media.
Note from BcAquatics
Now i know biohome is more pricey than other traditional bio filteration media but if you want true professional results and quality then biohome is for you. It cant be stressed enough that this is public aquarium grade and the results are there. I wouldnt sell something that i dont fuly back or use myself. you have the BcAquatics approval of this product.
BioHome can be re-sold on the petstore level. Allow product to sit in your established filter and BioHome can be re-sold to help jump start beginner aquariums. It has potiental for petstores, so Wholesale orders are welcomed. Suggested retail price list is also avalible.
Biohome is best at 1 KG of Biohome for every 3000 liters of water in freshwater aquariums, For saltwater aquariums, Biohome should be 1 KG per 1500 liters of water. The best flow rates for freshwater is 5mm/ secs and saltwater is 10mm/ sec. Biohome will do best in a zero light environment.
BioHome is effective for both fresh and salt water aquariums, it can be used for aquarium ponds, HOB filters, canister filters, sumps, Refugiums, and any other source of filteration. It is so versitile which made it the choice of professionals and now its avalible for home aquarist use.
BCA seahorses is a completely new project for the 2009 year. While breeding and selling is at the complete opposite end of the specture, we are starting to get more serious about keeping reidi or kellogi seahorses.
Seahorses are truely best kept in their own tank. The key for a seahorse tank is to keep the water flow down. They dont swim very well so a strong current will cause them problems. The filteration doesnt need to be the best as seahorses dont produce that much waste. Prehaps biological filtertation only is good for a seahorse tank. I recommend the use of a spray bar water return as it allows for a weaker current around the whole tank. Live sand would also be a very good idea. Seahorses tend to be picky to feed so by having live sand, it allows for growth of copepods and other crustations. Live rock should be provided for biological filteration. The key decor is plants. I use plenty of Tonga Branch Live Rock in my seahorse tank, along with this i use cheato morpha algae to grow copepods as well it gives the seahorses something to hold one to. Try using fake decor, bright coloration to encourage the seahorses to change colors to a brighter yellow. Other than that, seahorses dont produce that much waste so a powerful filter may be problematic for them. Remember that seahorses will grow rather large and be better off in a high aquarium of around 50 gallons or more.
Wild caught seahorses will usually be harder to get to feed then their tank raised counterparts. Live brine shrimp is often readly excepted but it doesnt have much value. You can try enriching it with a product called selcon. Tank raised seahorses will often feed on frozen foods. This is much better as most will eat a highly nurtientius food called frozen mysis shrimp. They come in either flat packs or cubes, allow it to float around your tank but only what they can eat within 10 minutes. I also add some live copepods. They are a great sign to know your tank is established and doing well. You can also buy cultures of them and add them directly into your tank or refugum. They will eat cheatomorpha so i do recommend adding some into the main aquarium.
Overall i am very happy with my decision to work with seahorses, I decided to try Hippocampus Kellogi and they have been a disappointment. They are tank bred so they are feeding off of frozen mysis. They are alittle difficult to care for than most novice fishkeepers can give them, so make sure you are experienced in saltwater fishkeeping and make sure you can them the special care they need.
We Have a pair of small Kellogi's so i expect them to breed in the future, The more common species are the Reidi's and Erctus so be sure to check back often for our progess in breeding tank raised Hippocampus Kellogi.
BcAquatics started as a betta splenden resource informational page back in 2006. While we aren’t currently keeping nor breeding betta fish, the following information is based on my experience and research after 13 years of betta breeding.
