Aqua Medic Antiphos Fe 500ml/300gr is a phosphate / silicate remover for freshwater and seawater aquariums
Antiphos is an ideal medium for the selective removal of phosphate from aquarium water, thereby preventing the undesired development of algae. Is a very active, iron-based product that contains no aluminum and is completely safe for aquarium plants and animals.
The phosphate is irreversibly bound to the antiphos Fe and is removed from the aquarium when the antiphos Fe is refreshed.
It is particularly effective for managing the phosphate content in reef aquariums and can reduce the phosphate concentration to very low levels for very long periods.
The coarse size of the antiphos particles makes it possible for the water to flow quickly past the lumps, so that a fluidized filter bed is not required.
The binding capacity of antiphos is approximately 10 g phosphate / kg. Depending on the conditions, 500 ml of antiphos Fe is sufficient to treat a normally populated aquarium of 300 l for about 3 – 6 months.
