List of products by brand Poly-Bio-Marine Inc.
In 1976, Poly-Bio-Marine, Inc. developed, patented and commercialized a truly unique product, the "Poly Filter" . It was specifically designed for chemical filtration in the aquarium. Its unique properties and strict quality control offered distinct advantages to the amateur fish keeper and professional aquarist alike. The product was invented by a marine biologist, polymer chemist and medical pathologist. Its purpose was to eliminate the need for carbon, exchange resins and gels by offering a better product to filter and purify both fresh and salt water aquariums. A totally new filter media that would also solve many of the problems associated with breeding and maintaining healthy freshwater and marine tropical fish and invertebrates.
Poly Filter is a formulation of patented material bonded to a synthetic matrix. By means of a special proprietary process, it is made impervious to salt while being organic-loving to certain materials. It is designed to continuously filter pollutants from the water without removing any desirable trace elements. In addition to its many features, a major benefit is its ability to maintain a nitrogen cycle balance if the biological filter malfunctions. It provides a supplemental means for the removal of ammonia when the biological filter is unable to break down excess ammonia. At that point, the "Poly Filter" absorbs the excess ammonia giving time to the biological filter to adjust to the higher ammonia input levels. All of this occurs without adding anything to the aquarium system to aid the filter and without removing any fish or invertebrates from the aquarium water.
