NPX Bioplastics Filter Media available in 200ml and 400ml packs.
This new media works by releasing organic food which promotes the development of bacteria that absorb nitrate and phosphates fro your aquarium water.
These bacteria can be harvested by protein skimmers so that the nitrate and phosphate levels are naturally reduced.
Because the bacteria are also a food source for filter-feeding invertebrates such as corals clams sponges and feather dusters.
NPX Bioplastics operate best when installed in a fluidized filter like the PhosBan reactor 150 or 550 but they may also be placed in a media bag in a filtration compartment.
This means the use of a skimmer is not an absolute necessity
The best way to use this product is at a rate of 100 ml Bioplastics per 100 L (approx 25 gallons).
After approx 2-4 weeks nitrate and phosphate levels will start to decrease.
Because the media is slowly consumed more pellets have to be added periodically to maintain the perfect operating levels.
