Red Sea NO3:PO4-X Nitrate & Phosphate Reducer

Brand: Red Sea


Availability : 0 In-Stock


NO3:PO4-X from Red Sea (also known as nopox) was specifically formulated to avert bothering algae and to keep control of zooxanthellae in order to allow an optimum growth of corals and a better coloration of them. It is important to keep control on the nutrients that promote the natural algae growth, and NO3:PO4-X is the sole carbon complex that incentivizes the growth of nitrate and phosphate reducing bacteria.

This carbon complex grants that each carbon is used by the diverse strains of microorganisms while providing the necessary and proper percentage of carbon:nitrogen:phosphorus in every stage.

The controlled dosing of NO3:PO4-X ensures measured and steady changes as well as the most precise continuance of the nutrients avoiding the destruction of the zooxanthellae, which can produce ultraviolet shock and undernourishment of the corals.

Among this complex there are also bonded ingredients that stimulate every step of the reduction process. With metal and non-metal elements a constant propagation of the bacteria is ensured as well as an absolute nitrate reduction to nitrogen gas. Bacteria will also absorb and use the phosphate contained. This compound can be used to give a comprehensive carbon source to be utilized with carbon based denitrators.

It has a concentration of 2ml/100 liters- 25gal/day and it is presented in packages of 500ml (16.9 fl.Oz), 1000 ml (33.8fl. Oz).

What this complex provides if properly utilized is an adequate nutrition of the whole micro fauna that are fundamental for a good and healthy coral population.

Note: It is important that NO3:PO4-X never be used together with other phosphate removers!
