Hardy is gradually converting most of its tubed media from glass to plastic tubes. What are the advantages for you?
  • Safer – less chance of shattering if dropped
  • Stronger – can survive rigorous treatment during shipping
  • Lighter – weighs 43% less than glass and thus costs less to ship
  • Stable – pH is not affected as with glass
