Marine Pure Bio-Balls? FINAL YAY OR NAY

Recommended Posts

Greetings everybody! I have a question about my filtration on my Fluval 13.5 I'm using these Marine Pure balls which are suppose to have crazy amounts of surface area and all that. But it seems something that people talk about that they don't are the levels of aluminum that it could leach. being a small nano reef I don't want any levels of aluminum in my water column. Has anyone heard of this? Also, is there a better alternative for such a small tank? I've filled the whole second chamber with these balls. Maybe transitioning to a small bit of chaeto would be a more natural way? If it matters, I have upgraded my return pump to the Sicce 1.0, so there's an alright amount of flow back there!

Thank so much!

Aluminum is not the main/only objection IMO.

 

The approach should be: "I have a problem.  How can I solve it?" Then you look at tools.

 

You have "the cart before the horse" so to speak.

 

(I.e. reefs don't need bio-media, they are bio-media.  Save it for the next tank.)
