    Kent Marine Nitrogen Sponge is a multi-purpose zeolitic media for removing organic waste.  Nitrogen Sponge will directly absorb ammonia in freshwater aquariums, and reduces nitrate levels in freshwater and saltwater aquariums through anaerobic bacterial growth within its porous structure.  For best results use in a Media Reactor, or in an 800 micron filter media bag in a high flow area of your filter.

    Contents treat over 100 gallons
    Package Size1 gal.
    Use 1 cup for each 20 gallons of aquarium water. More can be used for greater effectiveness. Rinse with fresh water before use (preferably reverse osmosis or de-ionized water). Place in a large mesh bag (800 micron) or a canister filter, directly in water flow. Make sure water flows through the material and not just around it. To control ammonia in freshwater systems, granules can be replaced weekly. When used for controlling nitrates, replace only half of the granules every 3 to 6 months. 3.3 lbs (1 qt) treats 50 gallons and will reduce nitrates by about 20 ppm. Several weeks will be required to see an appreciable drop in nitrates. Test nitrates and ammonia regularly.

    Can be used as an excellent media in de-nitrators and other slow-flow applications.

    The increased presence of ammonia or nitrates is usually associated with the system’s organic load. To keep this in check, prevent overfeeding, practice good maintenance, avoid aquarium overcrowding and provide proper filtration and water circulation. Regular water changes using reverse osmosis water are probably the most immediate way to reduce and regulate these levels. In marine systems be sure to use low nitrate salts such as KENT Marine Sea Salt.
    Contains: granular zeolitic medium.
