Penn-Plax began in 1956 when Marvin Goldman, an engineer and fish hobbyist, together with his wife Anita, opened Saratoga Tropiquarium, a pet shop in Brooklyn, N.Y. Soon after, Marvin’s brother Jerry joined the team as an industrial designer.
For more than 50 years the goals of the founders have driven—and still drive—Penn-Plax to enhance the pet ownership experience. Today Penn-Plax distributes 4,000 SKUs throughout the U.S. and in 44 other countries. Their inventory includes a wide variety across the dog, cat, bird, small animal and pond categories. Currently headquartered in Hauppauge, N.Y., the company is thriving and has a long list of patents.

Biohome Filter Media is a highly efficient biological filter media developed by AQUA-BIO UK Ltd with a proven track record of manufacture of filter media used worldwide for over 20 years in the aquatic industry.
Biohome is manufactured wholly from recycled glass and Byproducts of the aggregate industry that contain the required trace elements and minerals shown to be beneficial to healthy bacteria formation. Biohome is produced in a variety of sizes and forms to suit every type of filter.
Biohome has been around for approximately 20 years but has been mostly sold in the Far East where keepers of Koi and Arowana appreciated its remarkable ability to process the waste generated from these demanding species. In 2012 the manufacturer of Biohome contacted Richard from the Pondguru channel on Youtube and asked him to take a look at the media which was incredibly popular in Asia but was still relatively unknown in the rest of the world.
With the combined knowledge of the biohome manufacturer and a chemist the perfect balance of size, porosity and performance was achieved resulting in the revolutionary Mini Ultra media which allows the full nitrogen cycle to be completed inside an external filter. A later improvement to the mini ultra (addition of trace elements for benefit of bacteria) resulted in Biohome Ultimate which allows for even faster bacterial colonisation and faster processing of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
