Two Little Fishies NPX Bioplastics Nitrate & Phosphate Reducing Polymer Media - 400ml Information



Part #: NPX1

Enjoy a greener way of cleaning your aquarium with the Two Little Fishies NPX Bioplastics Nitrate & Phosphate Reducing Polymer Media from Pet Store. This comes in a 500-millilter bottle that may seem small, but rally is enough to maintain your tank for a long time. This liquid introduces you to a new way of removing any form of harmful elements in your water without taking a big chunk of your electricity.

You will be surprised at how the Two Little Fishies NPX Bioplastics Nitrate & Phosphate Reducing Polymer Media works. First of all, its primary responsibility is to minimize the amount of dangerous chemicals that are commonly found in the water, as well as those that are not being filtered by a refugium.

What the Two Little Fishies NPX Bioplastics Nitrate & Phosphate Reducing Polymer Media does is that it feeds the microorganisms and bacteria that will then eat the elements. In essence, this product is actually a supplement. When the elements and organisms are solid enough, they will be quickly filtered by your skimmer and thus, the nitrate and phosphate levels will decrease.

With the Two Little Fishies NPX Bioplastics Nitrate & Phosphate Reducing Polymer Media, you can now save more money by cleaning your aquarium without using electricity-consuming devices. Your aquatic inhabitants will definitely love the peace and quiet that this product brings.

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.
