Are you using the Best Filter Media of 2019?
Bulk Reef Supply ROX 0.8 Carbon
Most popular carbon
Although ROX 0.8 is the most expensive option, it maintains popularity because of the effectiveness. The tiny pellets are specifically made for filtering water because of the vast surface area they offer. Adding to that, it is made using a blend of multiple different carbon sources, each with different pore sizes, which means it will catch a much wider range of impurities than most typical aquarium carbons.
Bulk Reef Supply Granular Ferric Oxide (GFO)
Most popular phosphate control
To our surprise the standard GFO sold the most units in 2019. This is the best priced GFO option and is the long time favorite method of reducing phosphate in reef aquariums. There is also the High Capacity GFO which can hold twice as much phosphate and will not create as much dust but it does costs more. In this case, it is likely the low cost that contributes to the popularity of the standard GFO because when it boils down to it, you can remove the same amount of phosphate for less money.
Runner up for most popular phosphate control
Liquid phosphate removers have become popular with hobbyists in recent years because the precise dosing allows the user to maintain phosphate at particular levels, not just zero. This is popular among public aquaria and coral aquaculture companies such as World Wide Corals who utilize the Phosphat-E in their systems.
Marinepure Ceramic Biomedia Plate
Most popular biological media
Marinepure Ceramic media is an extrodinarily porous biological filter media that facilitates both aerobic and anaerobic bacterial activity in your aquarium. It is soft enough to be cut into custom shapes so it works great for sliding into sumps or back filter chambers of AIO tanks. It is also quite popular for use in bare-bottom tanks that need the extra surface area to establish a stable bacterial foundation.
Brightwell Aquatics Microbacter 7
Most popular bacteria for bio media
Microbacter 7 is a widely popular liquid bacteria additive that contains 7 different types of both autotrophic and heterotrophic bacteria for your aquarium. The autotrophic bacteria helps establish a solid nitrogen cycle while the heterotrophic bacteria reduces detritus and even some algae. It can be used to help shorten cycle times, clean up neglected tanks or as a regular maintenance dose to keep your tank in pristine condition.
Vibrant Aquarium Cleaner
Most popular cleaning bacteria
The cat is out of the bag with this one, it really does work! Our recent BRStv Investigates tests provided some pretty convincing proof that this product works and works well. It harnessses the power of heterotrophic bacteria to get rid of a variety of different algae as well as organic waste in saltwater aquariums, even when growing at plague proportions.
Bulk Reef Supply CO2 Absorbent Media
Most popular CO2 adsorption
This is what we are known for here at BRS and the popularity of our Bulk Color Changing Co2 media is just another example of a high quality media that we can offer at a great price because we buy it in bulk and package it ourselves. It is the best price option for filling your CO2 scrubbers. Co2 scrubbers are not a new concept but have recently risen in popularity because they help keep a more stable pH in your tank by removing excess CO2 from the air entering your protein skimmer before it interacts with your aquarium water.
Two Little Fishes ReBorn
Most popular calcium reactor media
There is no arguing that TLF ReBorn media is made from coral skeletons. It has long been the preferred calcium reactor media by professionals and remains to be one of the best options to this day. By melting real coral skeletons with a calcium reactor, you can add the elements your corals need to grow in the right ratio without the hassle of dosing multiple supplements.
Bulk Reef Supply Bulk Biopellets
Most popular biopellets
This is another case in which our excellent price point is likely the biggest contribitor to being so popular with all of you. Funny enough, biopellets are made using bacteria via a special process and a majority of the "Biopellets" on the market originate from the same place.
