Two Little Fishies NPX Bioplastics Nitrate & Phosphate Reducing Polymer Media - 1 Liter Information



Part #: NPX2

Free your tank from harmful bacteria by using the biological way with the Two Little Fishes NPX Bioplastics Nitrate and Phophate Reducing Polymer Media from Pet Store. These channels are made of biodegradable polymers that come in pellet forms. The cleaning action that these features possess is unique in such a way that the media releases substances that are similar to nitrate and phosphate, which are edible to bacteria. The microorganisms will then feed on the elements, and they will grow and accumulate inside the medium, specifically on the surfaces of the pellets. As they proliferate, the bacteria in the filter rise to the top as the built-in, fluidized filter constantly plummets. They can then be easily eliminated by the protein skimmer.

Alternatively, these bacteria serve as food for invertebrates that feed on filters like clams, corals, and sponges. There are also zones within the pellets that are anaerobic and facilitate de-nitrification. This further contributes to a cleaner and clearer aquarium water and tank.

The Two Little Fishes NPX Bioplastics Nitrate and Phophate Reducing Polymer Media come in a one-liter bottle, which is enough for at least ten doses for every 25 gallons or a hundred liters of water. The product is easy to use and yet, it remains to be very effective. You will note that the nitrate and phosphate levels will drastically be reduced after two to four weeks with the use of the Two Little Fishes NPX Bioplastics Nitrate and Phophate Reducing Polymer Media.

NPX BioPlastics are pelletized biodegradable polymers that provide a time-released source of food for bacteria that assimilate nitrate and phosphate. As bacteria develop on the pellet surfaces, excess growth sloughs off due to the tumbling in a fluidized filter, and these bacteria can be removed with a protein skimmer or serve as planktonic food for filter-feeding invertebrates such as corals, clams, and sponges. Anaerobic zones also develop within the pellets, thus promoting denitrification there. Why bother with dosing Vodka daily when you can just use NPX BioPlastics and let the bacteria work for you?

Specifications

Directions: NPX Bioplastics are best installed in a fluidized filter like the PhosBan reactor 150 or 550, but they may simply be placed in a media bag in a filtration compartment.  Use 100 ml Bioplastics per 100 L (approx 25 gallons).  After 2-4 weeks, nitrate and phosphate levels will decrease.  because NPX Bioplastics are slowly consumed, more pellets have to be added periodically.  Observe the level of media within the filter and top off as necessary about every 3-6 months.  For aquaria with heavy feeding, higher quantities can be used, but the accumulation of phosphate from the food may require the combined use of NPX Bioplastics and PhosBan granular ferric oxide media, in separate reactors.

Caution: Maintain sufficient water flow through NPX Bioplastics to prevent production of hydrogen sulfide gas.  Employ strong water circulation, aeration, and/or a surface skimming overflow in the aquarium to maintain high levels of oxygen saturation when using this product because of the strong influence it has on oxygen saturation.  The use of NPX Bioplastics in marine aquariums must be accompanied by the use of a protein skimmer to achieve the export of bacteria and assimilated nutrients.  It is not necessary for the outlet of the filter containing pellets to be positioned near the intake of a protein skimmer, but it is necessary to have a protein skimmer running on the system.
