AQUARIUM SYSTEMS Bio Pellets Mega Media
Filtration by AQUARIUM SYSTEMS Bio Pellets Mega Media is a probiotic method in which, owing to the presence of an organic carbon source, heterotrophic marine bacteria promote nitrification and denitrification by growth of the biomass. This media for reactors enable targeted degradation of nitrates and phosphates in seawater aquariums.
Composed of 100% biodegradable polymers, they are at once a support for colonisation and a source of nutrition for bacteria intended to degrade nitrates and phosphates.
The bacteria use NP Biopellets as a carbon source (energy source), and the nitrates and phosphates in the water in the aquarium as a nitrogen and phosphate source. The NO3 and PO4 waste is thus converted into microbial biomass extracted from the aquarium by the skimmer.
The waste produced by this conversion also provides an additional source of nutrition (bacterial plankton) for filter organisms (corals, sponges, etc.).
NOTE: To be used with Bio Pellet Reactors.
