HD Q-PAC® Media for Aquarium Water Treatment in Life Support System: pH, Dissolved Oxygen, and Turbidity Improved Significantly

0
The Newport Aquarium needed to improve the clarity and quality of sea water in its large fish exhibit. After evaluating alternatives with independent consultant Dave LaBonne, Jeff Gibula (Husbandry Operations Manager) decided to use HD Q-PAC® media in his one of his life support systems. HD Q-PAC® is considered an excellent choice for use in aquarium water treatment, both for newly constructed systems, as well as for replacement of corrugated media in existing systems.

HD Q-PAC® (pictured left) has the following characteristics, making it ideally suited for aquarium and aquaculture applications:

• 132 ft2/ft3 specific surface area (up to 300 ft2/ft3 effective surface area)
• 75,000 drip points per ft3 form additional droplet surface
• durable, easy to handle 1 ft3 blocks, rigid enough to walk on
• excellent resistance to fouling and plugging
• none of the harmful extractables found in PVC and CPVC media
• rounded surfaces support active growth
• good distribution of applied water
