Clean and healthy water: ceramic filter tubes for use in aquarium filters
The quality of the filter material essentially determines the effectiveness of an aquarium filter! Most aquarium filters are already equipped with sponges as filter material in advance. Sponges have a fairly large surface area, which over time will be colonised by beneficial bacteria for breaking down pollutants. Ceramic tubes are the ideal pre-filter material, as they can hold on to the dirt well due to their tubular shape, but do not clog up as quickly as sponges, or similar! They can be quickly rinsed out under running water and are then immediately ready for use again. Useful, pollutant-degrading bacteria can settle excellently on the outside and inside of the ceramic tubes. However, the surface area of the ceramic tubes is much smaller than that of sintered glass tubes such as JBL SintoMec.
We therefore recommend the ceramic tubes as a pre-filter material and the sintered glass tubes as the main biological filter material, even though both types of tubes perform both functions.
