CaribSea LSM Sulfur Media 1 Gal Information




Carib Sea Lsm Sulfur Media 1 Gal LSM is pure granular elemental sulfur, with sulfur reducing bacteria right on it for faster break in. This is the product that is used by many public institutions and is now called for in many split level and dual chamber reactors that are being commercially produced to incorporate sulfur denitrification. When used in conjunction with fine calcium reactor media, such as our original ARMâ„¢, this method of filtration makes for a lower nitrate, pH stable environment that is better for your animals
  • 100% organically grown
  • Produces a lower nitrate, pH stable environment
  • Made by Carib Sea

Lowered Nitrates to 0!

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I built a Bio denitrate recirculating reactor and am using LSM and ARM as the media. I would advise whoever uses this to rinse the sulfur and strain the fine particles before use as doing so will help with the flow and prevent channeling. Also, I did not want to chew up the impeller on the pump. It will take about a week to develop the proper bacteria bed at a 1 dps flow rate, then you will need to increase the rate otherwise you will start to smell an egg like aroma. You can also test the effluent and if it is at 0 nitrates, then increase the dps to 2-3. All in all this sulfur is effective and I would purchase it again... I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for having to remove the fine sulfur particles for my application.
