Tetra BalanceBall ProLine is a filter medium and bacterial food as one filter ball. Nitrate (NO3) is a nutrient for plants and algae alike. To inhibit algae growth, an aquariums nitrate content sholud be as low as possible or in line with consumption through the absorption capacity of the plants in the aquarium. In most aquariums, the nitrate content is too hight, due to fish feeding. Tetra BalanceBalls ProLine consists of special polymeric material that is an ideal source of food for nitrate-degrading bacteria so called denitrificants. The denitrificants in the aquarium water settle primarily on the Tetra BalanceBalls filter medium and break down the filter material. In this microbiological process nitrate (nitrogen) is removed from the aquarium water and carbonate hardness (KH) is formed. This is particularly useful because this KH formation counteracts what would otherwise be a decrease in KH content. Through this process, the pH value is stabilised. This is how Tetra Balance Balls ensure constantly optimal water parameters.
