Re: [APD] bio-Balls VS Bio-Wheels
I really doubt that one works "better" than the other.
Volume of medium for a given task might differ. Both are
tried and true techniques for providing high levels of
oxygen to aqautic bacteria. Both seem to slough off excess
material and profvide a good substrate for bacteria -- but
then what wet surface doesn't? I know someone tried
platics toy soldiers as a biomedium and last I heard, the
filter was working fine.
I'd be interested to see some good data on how much the
balls or wheels do and wht's really needed to handle a
given amount of ammonia or nitrite.
