Red Sea X Nitrate and Phosphate Remover (NO3 PO4-X) is designed to slowly but effectively prevent the growth of algae, without harming the development of corals and other reef life.
This Nitrate and Phosphate Remover uses a complex blend of minerals and carbon compounds that limit an overabundance of sulphate bacteria which contribute to algae growth. This happens gradually so as not to cause UV shock or starvation.
The remover also contains a mixture of metal and non-metal elements that support beneficial bacteria. Nitrates are turned to nitrogen gas and phosphates are consumed by the bacterial colonies which clears the water and lowers the risk of algae blooms.
This method reduces the nutrients that cause algae and releases more zooanthellae which supports coral pigmentation and development.
NO3:PO4-X is also recommended as a complete carbon source for use with carbon based de-nitrators. Use the correct Nitrate Test Kit to determine the level of this unwanted nutrient.
Immediate action for Phosphate reduction.
Dose 1ml per 5 litres of aquarium water to reduce the phosphate content by 1 mg/l.
Maximum one dose per day, repeat until levels are below 0,1 mg/l.
The use of Royal Phosphate Remover can cause a strong reduction of the pH; use only when KH is at least 8˚DKH. Check the KH-level after use of Royal Phosphate Remover.
• Keep out of reach of children.
NitraPhos Minus is a unique formula that aims to biologically remove nitrate, nitrite and phosphate from the aquarium. It activates the metabolism in various types of bacteria, which are responsible for the management and removal of excess nutrients. Thanks to the special composition of multiple forms of organic carbon, amino acids and vitamins, all biochemical changes occur without any issues and bacteria easily absorb compounds to convert them into biomass. That biomass becomes a valuable food for corals while the excess and residues of it are removed from water by filter or skimmer. NitraPhos Minus improves the overall condition of corals, provides better colouration and promotes their growth. Due to maintaining the biological balance in the tank it prevents the formation of undesirable green algae and the development of cyanobacteria.
What’s great about this product:
Effectively removes excess nitrate & phosphate
Brings chemical balance
Quickly reduces undesired algae
Boosts coral coloration & growth
It is recommended to start NitraPhos Minus at half of the recommended dose. It is recommended to monitor the concentration of NO3 and PO4 once or twice a week. The recommended daily dosage is shown below:
Good to know:
Low nitrate and phosphate impose rich corals supplementation
Inefficient filtration may be the reason for high nitrate & phosphate
Too much food or supplements may also be the cause of too high nitrate and phosphate levels
A violent drop of nitrate and phosphate levels can destroy zooxanthellae and lead to corals death
NitraPhos Minus was designed to quickly remove from the high levels of nitrate and phosphate. You can use it together with Pro Bio S. -NP Pro is a nourishment for bacteria and there’s no need to use it while dosing NitraPhos Minus
