NP BioPearls Filter Media
NP BioPearls Filter Media 500g
NP BioPearls are an ideal filter media for Nitrate and Phosphate removal in aquariums.
These NP Biopearls are packaged in 500ml pouches. NP BioPearls are pelletized biodegradable polymers that remove nutrients from the water, mainly nitrate and phosphate, by converting them into bacteria. This keeps the aquarium water parameters closer to that seen in natural sea water.
The new formula NP Reducing BioPearls are composed of 100% pure biologically degradable polymers that can be placed in a fluidized filter or mini filter canister. The pellets will allow aerobic growth of bacteria which consequently will consume nitrate and phosphate simultaneously.
The bacteria will use up the carbon from the BioPearls, whilst nitrogen and phosphorus are taken from the water as nitrate and (ortho)phosphate. This conversion of organic BioPearls (together with inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus) into microbial biomass is called immobilization. In addition, anaerobic layers will develop, resulting in additional denitrification.
To avoid the sensitive marine animals being unadapted for sharply reducing of NO3 and PO4, we recommend adding NP BioPellets in a successive way.
