In the aquarium hobby, we often hear that Plastic Bio-Balls are “Nitrate Factories” in that their use results in high aquarium nitrate levels. Hobbyists are concerned other bio filter medias might have the same issue.

The information below will help you better understand the difference between plastic vs. non-plastic bio filter medias.   The important takeaway to understand is just because you have high nitrate levels in your fish tank, does not mean you have created a “Nitrate Factory” that you can’t get rid of.
