What is biological filtration?
Biological filtration is the process of converting potentially harmful chemicals into a less reactive form by means of biological activity. Nitrification is an important example of biological filtration. During nitrification, oxygen-loving bacteria break down nitrogen waste products (ammonia and nitrite) and convert them into the relatively harmless by-product, nitrate. These beneficial nitrifying bacteria establish the foundation for efficient pond biological filtration. Their numbers directly influence the efficiency of pond biological filtration. In other words, more nitrifying bacteria mean low or undetectable levels of toxic ammonia and nitrite.

Requirements for healthy bacterial colonies
Nitrifying bacteria require certain conditions in order to thrive. To maintain large colonies, they need a steady food source of ammonia or nitrite and oxygen-rich water. Fish waste and decaying organic material supply ammonia and vigorous water movement provides oxygen. Agitation of the water's surface allows water to come into greater contact with air and provides a site for gas exchange. Harmful gasses are released and oxygen is incorporated into the water. These beneficial bacteria also require water temperatures above 55°F to effectively process the nitrogen waste products.

Cultivate beneficial bacteria
Nitrifying bacteria occur naturally in your pond. By providing ideal growing conditions, you can increase their population and fortify pond biological filtration. Begin by supplying suitable areas for bacterial growth. Biological filter media are specifically designed to cultivate a large number of beneficial bacteria in a centralized location. Nourish nitrifying bacteria by maintaining oxygen-rich water. Install a water fountain or a pond aeration device to promote proper gas exchange that replenishes pond oxygen content.
