    Very good filtration media for fresh or saltwater systems.

    I love that hydroton stuff. I have it in my sump, and use it in my Aquaclears HOB's. It does take awhile to become saturated and sink though. AND, I happen to have about 15-20 gallons of it brand new in the bag in my garage, if anyone needs some. For a very small donation.....

    Since it is clay, will it breakdown over time and end up in the tank?

    Been using for about 6 months now. Haven't noticed any breakdown. Pretty dusty to start, and needs a good rinse.

    I've been using it for years in fresh and saltwater and it's never broken down on me yet, even if it did so what it's clay and aquarium safe.

    I had lots in my sump. Maybe shrank a bit smaller. Not sure. No notice of clay water

    I've used it a bunch, no idea it was this popular.

    Paul who used to own the coral/sw boutique petshop in Aldergrove was the one who introduced it to Laurie and I years ago. I've been telling everyone how great it is ever since. Best part is that since its not manufactured specifically for the ornamental fish or reefkeeping industry, it does NOT come with the huge markup that seems to be standard for any fish related products. Lots of other filter makers have their own version of hydroton (probably just repackaged and NOT specifically made for them), but those name brand bio media clay balls are bleeping expensive (like $30-40 for a small box of it).

    In four decades of fish-keeping, this is probably my favourite hobby-related product. I always keep some on hand as well in case fish-friends need some.
