"My nitrate and phosphate levels are close to zero, but algae is growing!" Sounds familiar?

With current use of NP-Reducing BioPellets, it has become very easy to maintain nitrates and phosphate levels close to zero, however, in most tanks there is still a surplus of phosphates. Phosphate levels exceeding 0.03 ppm will negatively affect coral growth and higher levels will also negatively influence the health of your fish and enhance the growth of annoying algae.

Most of current phosphate reducing products are based on granular ferric hydroxide (GFO) and leak up to 10 times more iron-ions into your tank than natural seawater levels, which enhances algae growth and inhibits coral growth. This is tested and confirmed at the university of Wageningen, Holland. The tests were done with a inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer.

PO4X4 Phosphate Remover is a unique chemical engineered polymer based mini pellets that does not have these down sides. In other words, there is hardly any leaking of Iron-ions, the pellets do not clump together and can be readily used in fluidized filters.

They have a very high surface area and can absorb approximately 4 times more phosphate than most other phosphate removing products. 250 ml will remove 3 ppm of phosphate and silicate from roughly 8.000 liter of fresh water or 4.000 liter of marine water.

Do not overdose! Rapid changes in phosphate can negatively affect your animals. Use small amounts of PO4X4 to gradually lower the phosphate levels in your aquarium.

PO4X4 works in perfect harmony with the NP Reducing BioPellets and ReefPearls.
