Biodegradable trickling filter media for reducing nitrate and phosphate levels
NP-BACTO-TRICKS provide an effective means of reducing the levels of nitrate and phosphate in aquariums by acting as trickling filter media. NP-BACTO-TRICKS consist of a mixture of natural biopolymers, which are removed by bacteria and other aerobic microorganisms. As they grow, they extract nitrate and phosphate from the water and thus produce valuable biomass, which serves as food for filter feeders or can be skimmed off.
For the application of NP-BACTO-TRICKS, Tropic Marin® has developed and designed the ventilated BIO-ACTIF REACTOR 5000 system, which ensures an optimum supply of oxygen for the reduction of nutrients.
