    NPX Bioplastics reduce nitrate and phosphate in your aquarium by providing food for nitrate and phosphate-absorbing bacteria. Excess bacteria can be removed by your protein skimmer. It can also serve as food for filter feeding inverts like corals, clams, feather dusters and sponges. NPX Bioplastics are best used in fluidized reactors, but can be used in a media bag in any canister or power filter.

    Manufacturer notes for best results: use the 200 mL NPX Bioplastics Media in the PhosBan 150 with the NPX Bioplastics Screens in place of the sponges. A 300 - 350 gph flow rate is also recommended.

    For more information on controlling phosphates, please see our article How to Get Rid of Algae and our That Fish Blog post: Phosphates – Invisible Troublemakers in Ponds and Aquariums.

    Directions: NPX Bioplastics are best installed in a fluidized filter like the Phosban reactor 150/550. Warning: To avoid the potential for a cloudy white bacteria bloom in the water do not use a full dosage to start on aquariums with high nitrate concentration. Start at 1/2 the recommended dosage and gradually increase after a few weeks to 100ml per 100L/25 gallons. Maintain sufficient water flow through NPX Bioplastics to prevent production of hydrogen sulfide gas. Employ strong water circulation, aeration, and/or surface skimming in the aquarium to maintain high levels of oxygen saturation when using this product because of the strong influence it has on oxygen saturation. The use of NPX Bioplastics in marine aquariums must be accompanied by the use of a protein skimmer to achieve the export of bacteria with assimilated nutrients
