The AlphaBioONE media was specially designed for this filter and this filter only. It is not something borrowed from another industry and used in the filter.
Its design is unique in that it was not designed with "cross hairs" as some other specialty types of media use. We left those out because in a static bed the "cross hairs" can collect and hold debris until it becomes anaerobic.
With the AlphaBioONE media there are no hidden areas for anaerobic bacteria, to harbor and stagnate, only beneficial bacteria.
Take a look at the AlphaBioONE media and you'll see for yourself.
