what type of foam are you running? Also was wondering if you could provide us the info for the vendor/US dealer you found

I'm glad you are happy with the product, but I am still at a loss trying to figure out the added benefits for the additional cost. It seems to be 3x the cost of other commercially available bio media. Unless you could somehow use less of this to have the same effective surface area for the bacteria to colonize, it just seems like there would be better ways to spend the money.

For me since I was starting a new tank, I'm a buy once cry once kind of guy, it seems to have all the things that other media's have without their "drawbacks". I'm sure they all work fine, and depending on what you have already it might not be cost effective for one to buy this, I didn't think it was that bad honestly, 8kgs for 140 and I filled both fx4 and fx6 with enough to fill another fx4 and still have some left over
