Pro Reef NP bio pellet is a bio media and bacterial food source adapted specifically for the reduction of Nitrate and Phosphate in aquaria. This revolutionary fluidised media brings all of the benefits of liquid Carbon/Vodka dosing methods without the risk of over dosing the aquarium.
Benefits and Use
• Reduces both nitrate and phosphate
• No additional carbon dosing is required
• Allows increased feeding of fish and corals
• 100-200ml of NutriFix per 100L of water
• Protein skimming required
• Best used in a fluidised reactor
Is it possible to use too much media?
No, it is not possible to overdose it as normally as the bacterial growth rate is limited by the availability of free nitrate and phosphate in the water regardless of the carbon source being available. Generally, bacterial growth will increase as nutrient levels rise and fall back as levels decrease creating a stable environment within the aquarium.
It is however recommended that a 50% dose is used when starting out on an existing aquarium to limit any excessive or rapid decreases in nutrient availability which could stress some more delicate organisms.
