Filter Media
Filter media are essential for proper aquarium filtration and healthy aquarium inhabitants. Filter media can be categorized into general groups including mechanical, chemical, and biological filter media.

Mechanical filter media physically trap and remove debris and particles from aquarium water to help keep aquarium water clean, clear, and free of floating particles. Chemical filter media including activated carbon and ion exchange resins remove a variety of impurities and through chemical reactions while specialized chemical media such as phosphate removers target a single type of pollutant. Biological media is any inert material used to cultivate beneficial bacteria that efficiently process harmful nitrogenous compounds.
