With so many different types of biomedia out there for aquaponics and aquaculture, this really simple biofilter calculator will help you work out how much of the media you need. It will also tell you the size of the tank and how much aeration it will need to get the media moving in three simple steps.
This simple biofilter calculator only requires the fish protein level, amount of feed per day and the surface area of the biomedia of your choice. We have put it together with both imperial and metric inputs and outputs for our friends over the pond. The results will tell you how much media, size of the filter tank and amount of aeration needed to keep it moving nicely
