Marine Source Nitrate / phosphate removal Bio pellets – Small ( 500 ml )
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF USING BIO-PELLETS?
Instant Nitrate (NO3) and Phosphate (PO4) removal
Ease of maintain as it will dissolve over time without the need to replace
No cyano or bacterial side effects if use correctly
Safe to use – No risk of Overdosing
Simple to use…Throw in , Set it and forget it.
Greatly increases protein skimmer performace in organic removal
Bacteria is consumed by tank inhabitants like corals and sponges
HOW DO BIO-PELLETS WORK?
Bio pallets is a type of Solid carbon dosing which has recently become an extremely popular method of removing nitrates from the saltwater aquarium. Most Bio-Pellets are made primarily of a biodegradable polymer that “feed” and promote aerobic and anaerobic bacteria making it a viable carbon source to consume nutrients (NO3 and PO4) within the water column. Just like the traditional methods of dosing Vodka, vinegar or sugar as a carbon source directly to the water column to promote the reproduction of bacteria cultures in our aquarium system to consume nutrients with the common downside of unsightly, stringy bacteria throughout the system.
By utilizing a reactor filled with solid bio-pellets changes everything! Rather than staging the entire aquarium into an ecosystem of bacteria, a reactor allows us to provide those microscopic creatures with a “food dish” tucked neatly away in the stand. Now the bacteria congregate in the confined space of a reactor and continue the same life cycle as before without leaving their mess behind for us to look at.
Remove GFO / Phosphate remocal media during the initial phases of the seeding of the reactor
Allow 8 weeks before making adjustments to the Bio pallet reactor or add any additional bio pallet if necessary.
Additions of bacteria supplements can help diversify the bacteria and speed up the process.
Remove UV sterilizers which might affect the performance of the bio pellet.
Make sure your skimmer is running at full efficiency and the effluent of the reactor is directed towards the skimmer feed pump
Keep your Bio reactor in a dark area away from light if you are using one.
