Is Biohome ultimate any good?

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good! So far so good, I have no way of knowing yet if this is starting to grow beneficial bacteria, but it’s very well constructed and extremely porous so I expect it to work very well. It was not very dusty, just a quick rinse and I added it to my Seachem Tidal 110 in a Seachem media bag.

How long does Biohome ultimate last?

4 weeks. Once the new media is in the filter it will last many years. The Biohome does mature extremely quickly so a 4 week addition period for a mature tank where the filter is operating near to capacity is a safe time frame.
