Permanently remove unseen heavy metal pollutants to restore aquarium water quality. Two Little Fishies MetaSorb UHC rapidly binds and removes metals that may come from source water, foods, artificial seawater mixes, therapeutic treatments, corroding metal equipment, magnets, pumps, etc. Use MetaSorb UHC for pre-treating new water or newly mixed artificial seawater, for removing copper medications, and for eliminating metals leached from corroding equipment. For freshwater and marine aquariums.
Two Little Fishies MetaSorb UHC is a patented high capacity polymer developed for the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund Program that removes all excess metals within hours to a few days. The media pouch sized for 1-250 gallon aquariums removes up to 80 ppm of metals from 940 liter. The media pouch sized for 500-800 gallon aquariums removes up to 120 ppm of metals from 500 gallons.
Simply place cloth media bag in any canister filter, hang-on-the-back power filter, or in flow-through sections of any sump or filter chamber. MetaSorb UHC can be removed, dried and stored for later use (may be reused several times).
Did you Know?
Mysterious ailments in fishes, corals and other invertebrates may occur when heavy metals reach a toxic threshold.
Rinse the cloth bag for 30 seconds in clean water before using. Do not cut or open it! Simply place the bag in any canister filter, hang-on-the-back power filter, or in flow flow-through sections of any sump or filter. Alternatively, use the fabric loop at the top corner with a zip tie to attach bag in a high flow location. Removes all excess metals within hours to a few days when properly matched to aquarium capacity.
MetaSorb should not be used continuously for more than 10 days. After use, remove pouch, rinse briefly and lay flat to dry so it can be stored for later use.
Glass beads in the bag allow it to sink properly. The polymer inside the bag may increase in volume and change color as a result of the metals bound. Does not remove alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, strontium, or organics.
Remove MetaSorb from aquarium when using any type of medication to treat the water. After treatment, MetaSorb can be used to completely remove copper medications from the water.
Trace Element Supplements
Remove MetaSorb from aquarium for one day after adding vitamin and trace elements to the water.
MetaSorb has ultra-high capacity to bind metals. MetaSorb for 1-250 gallons (Mfg# MET1) removes up to 80 ppm of metals from 940 liter. MetaSorb for 250-800 Gallons (Mfg# MET500) removes up to 120 ppm of metal from 500 gallons. There is no risk of overdose and once the metals bind to the polymer, they cannot be released back into the water. There is no harm to leaving the bag in the aquarium for long periods, and the bag can be removed and reused several times depending on the concentration of the metals and water volume.
MetaSorb binds the following metals only:
Aluminum, Cadmium, Cerium, Cobalt, Copper, Dysprosium, Erbium, Europium, Gadolinium, Gold, Holmium, Iron, Lanthanum, Lead, Lutetium, Manganese, Mercury, Neodymium, Nickel, Samarium, Scandium, Selenium, Silver, Terbium, Ytterbium, and Zinc.
An excess of heavy metals in the water is toxic to aquatic life. These metals may come from the water source, from foods, from artificial seawater mixes, therapeutic treatments, corroding metal equipment, magnets, pumps, etc. Mysterious ailments in fishes, corals and other invertebrates may occur when heavy metals reach a toxic threshold. MetaSorb UHC is made with patented high capacity polymers developed for the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund Program. Insoluble in water and nontoxic, the polymers rapidly bind and permanently remove metals from fresh and saltwater, making it possible to restore the water quality. MetaSorb UHC is a fine powder that is packaged in a small cloth media bag that is easy to locate in any area where high volume water flow will facilitate contact with the polymer.
