On this page you will find various types of media, designed for removing solid particles from the water or creating large surface areas on which beneficial bacteria colonize. The EasyPro media can be used by do-it-yourselfers to build their own filters or as replacement media for existing filters. The key to good water quality is proper filtration. Ponds that are under filtered will likely be cloudy, green and unattractive. Likewise aquatic systems that do not have properly sized filters can have high ammonia, high nitrites and low feed conversions.
In addition to good biological filtration, a UV sterilizer is another good option in many cases. A UV uses high intensity light to destroy algae cells that cause green water. They also eliminate disease causing pathogens, protecting fish health. A properly designed filtration system is vital to the success of any water system.
