Ceramic rings have long been used as filter medium in domestic aquariums.
Pores in the ceramic rings helps and encourages build up of useful bacteria, which in turns converts harmful substances, like ammonia, to enhance quality of the aquarium water.
The ceramic rings can be used with all types of filtration system and in conjugation with other filter mediums, like sponge and activated carbons. (however activated Carbon may affect the potency of medicine and therefore while administering medicine, it is recommended to remove activate carbon to attain desired affect / impact of the medicine)
It is a high performance ceramic rings even in small quantity.
Simultaneous breakdown of nitrites and reduction in nitrites.
Healthy fishes and plants.
No emission of harmful substances.
Fewer water changes.
Can be used in most filters-both fresh and saltwater.
This product is suitable in almost all filter, both in fresh and saltwater aquarium. Briefly rinse the bag holding the rings under running water (it is recommended to use aquarium water and not Tap water for this purpose). Place the ceramic rings inside the filter or under the gravel filtration system.
Please note the formation of the useful bacteria is a long drawn process and patience is recommended. You could also add bacteria into the aquarium to expedite the process of nitrification.
For best results feed smaller amounts more often, instead of just two feedings daily.
Turning the water flow down / off when feeding discus can be very beneficial.
Remove any uneaten food after the feeding period to avoid any health-impacting water quality issues.
Do not over feed as it will lead to cloudy water and may promote and encourage development of harmful ammonia and other infections.

Connect the air pump to air stone or filter via air pipe.
Plug into 220-240 volt power point.
To prolong pump life, replace air stones regularly.
Never allow pump to come in contact with water.
Air pumps have to be kept at a height higher than the highest water level of the aquarium, to ensure that the water does not flow back into the air pump in case of electricity failure, and not touching or abutting the aquarium to ensure that the vibration caused by the air pumps does not disturb the aquatic fishes.
Important Safeguard :
Disconnect all the plugs of the electrical aquarium appliances before putting hands into the water.
We recommended that air pump and other electrical aquarium devices, should be connected to correct voltage and power supplies with ground fault circuit interrupters.
Feed 2 to 3 times daily with the amount the fish can consume in 5 minutes. Remove unconsumed food within 30 minutes. Do not over feed as it will lead to cloudy water and may promote and encourage development of harmful ammonia and other infections.
