NP Bacto-Pellets 1000ml. (tropic marin) easy-to-use filter media for the effective removal of nitrate and phosphate
NP-BACTO-PELLETS is an easy-to-use filter media for the effective removal of nitrate and phosphate. It is made from a mixture of natural biopolymers, which promote the colonization and growth of nitrate and phosphate removing bacteria as well as other aerobic microorganisms.
This valuable biomass is then made available as a food source for filter feeders or can be skimmed off.
NP-BACTO-PELLETS should be placed in a pellet reactor or fluidizing reactor that circulates the pellets well. For the removal of nutrients and gas exchange a protein skimmer is recommended in marine aquariums. Soak the NP-BACTO-PELLETS for two hours before use. Start with 50 ml NP-BACTO-PELLETS for every 100 l / 25 US-Gal. of aquarium water. Double the amount after four weeks if necessary but DO NOT EXCEED 200 ml of NP-BACTO-PELLETS per 100 liters / 25 US-Gall of water. We recommend you top up the NP-BACTO-PELLETS every month to replace any degraded material.
For a quick and effective decomposition of nutrients, the outlet of the pellet reactor system should be installed nearby the inlet of the skimmer.
