Tropic Marin NP-Bacto-Pellets – 500ml
Tropic Marin NP-Bacto-Pellets 500 ml
An easy to use, biodegradable filter media for the effective removal of nitrates and phosphates
For the most natural environment in the reef aquarium it is important to pay close attention to the mineral and nutrient content. Naturally low nitrate and phosphate levels are what allow corals to show their brightest and most vibrant colors while also be able to grow vigorously.
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.

How to use:
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. Pour boiling hot water over the pellets and let soak for 2 hours before use to expel excess air. 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.
Tropic Marin® NP-BACTO-BALANCE is ideal for use with NP-BACTO-PELLETS, offering a controlled removal of nutrients.
