Rotifer Floss (Filter)

Rotifer Floss is a new innovation for cleaning detritus and ciliates out of rotifer systems. Keeping the water and tank clean from detritus (rotifer waste) is critically important in maintaining healthy, stable cultures - especially in high density systems. Detritus contains high levels of bacteria which are sticky. Rotifer Floss is a loose weave filter that allows water to easily pass through it, but has a high surface area which the detritus sticks to. LEARN MORE AT APBREED.COM
