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.
Red Sea’s Reef Mature Pro Kit - Complete biological maturation supplement kit for aquarium systems up to 250 liters
Complete biological maturation program for reef and marine aquariums. Nitrification + Nitrate and Phosphate reduction. Includes Nitro-Bac, Bacto-Start, NO3:PO4-X, KH Coralline Gro
Red Sea’s Reef Mature Pro Kit provides a complete program for the biological maturation of your reef aquarium, establishing full nitrification plus nitrate and phosphate reduction in a few weeks.
Most biological ‘cycling’ products only provide the bacteria that convert toxic waste products to nitrate. Red Sea’s Reef Mature Pro Kit completes the biological maturation process by establishing thriving colonies of anoxic (de-nitrifying and phosphate harboring) bacteria as well as ensuring the necessary conditions that will promote the growth of coralline algae and other micro fauna found in live rock and within a sand bed.
By using Red Sea’s Complete Marine Care Test Kit, you can monitor all essential water parameters during maturation.
