Make your freshwater aquarium an eco-system by using an Xport-BIO FRESHWATER 2.0" grooved Block set of 12. These twelve biological filtration media blocks were specifically created to increase water quality in your tank and provide an environment safe and healthy for aquatic animals. The Xport-BIO FRESHWATER block is constructed with care and precision using an exclusive grooved surface designed to provide optimal conditions for beneficial bacteria to flourish and nitrify, denitrify or both simultaneously. These beneficial microorganisms play an essential role in breaking down harmful ammonia and nitrite compounds into safer compounds like Nitrates. Integrating an Xport-BIO FRESHWATER block into your aquarium's filter system will provide an effective and natural method of maintaining high-quality water for fish. Blocks promote beneficial bacteria colonies that support a healthy nitrogen cycle within your aquarium, which keeps ammonia and nitrite levels to an absolute minimum - helping prevent stress or health problems in fish. The 2.0" dimension of these blocks with grooves offers enough room for bacteria to colonize and provide an efficient biological filtering process, which leads to improved water clarity and reduced maintenance requirements. As water passes through these grooved blocks, bacteria break down organic matter and toxic substances for removal resulting in improved clarity with reduced maintenance requirements. The Xport-BIO FRESHWATER block is ideal for freshwater aquariums of any type - from community to planted tanks - and can help ensure the health of fish, plants, and aquatic species in an efficient and convenient way. No matter whether you're new or experienced enthusiast alike, these blocks provide a reliable way to care for aquatic inhabitants such as fish, plants and other aquatic life. Installing the Xport-BIO FRESHWATER block requires only placing it into an area with sufficient flow, such as your sump or filter, to ensure proper functioning of biological filtration process. Regular monitoring of water parameters should ensure efficient functioning. Due to their durability and long-lasting design, these blocks will only continue improving the health and beauty of aquarium over time. Utilize Xport-BIO FRESHWATER 2.0" Grotted Blocks to enhance your aquarium's biological filtering abilities and promote overall fish health in its freshwater ecosystem. Bring beauty back into nature's beautiful freshwater system.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
