Press release: aquarium filter evolution to boost Hobby revival.
A decade long persistent stagnation of the Aquarium Industry has repeatedly been blamed on video games, mobile phones and other electronic entertainment, but information derived from the 2008 APPA National Pet Owners Survey shows that a staggering 89% of aquarium hobbyists are unhappy mainly because of present unsatisfactory maintenance related problems, but the long anticipated application of the filter-flush function in aquarium filters could finally reverse this slippery trend.
Ultimate solution to a lingering problem: smarter aquarium maintenance!
Why would you want to “digest” the fish waste when you can easily remove it instead?
2) Biological filter function: All filters automatically become biological filters in about 5 weeks after start-up, when the denitrifying bacteria have settled on the media; this is most desirable because it will reduce toxic ammonia and nitrites into almost harmless nitrates. The aim of most bio-filters is to have as much media surface area as possible and the massive 500 sintered glass Bio-pearls of an Aqua Genie filter will give it the highest possible ratio surface area per volume of media of any aquarium filter on the market today.
3) Chemical filter function: Chemical filtration is usually composed of activated charcoal filter replaceable parts to reduce odors and other toxins, or phosphate “sponges”! Aqua Genie filters also use carbon cartridges to give the aquarium water this extra sparkle clean appearance but do not need any phosphate reducing additives when the cause of those phosphates are removed by the flushing of the organic debris from the filter.
New 4th Filter-flush function: a smarter way at last!
As explained here above, it is now very clear that the addition of a forth filter-flush function to the traditional functions used by other filters is a major evolutionary step that will change the whole perception on fish keeping for the long term benefit of the aquarium hobby & industry.
Common sense that works like magic!
