Naturally Reduce Nitrates and Phosphates from the Aquarium

Bio-Spheres biopellet media is a 100 % pure biologically degradable polymer solid carbon source that helps reduce nitrates and phosphates within a marine environment by encouraging the growth of beneficial bacteria and enzymes on the media’s surface. Bio-Spheres provides a food source required for beneficial bacteria to reproduce and metabolize nitrates and phosphates.

Directions for use:
It's recommended to use this media in a Bio Pellets Reactor that designed for Bio Pellet media. We sugggest looking at our extensive line of Reef Octopus Bio-Pellets Reactors. Ultimately you want to make sure that there have enough water flow throw the reactor to supply needed oxygen to prevent hydrogen sulfate (H2S) from being produced which can be harmful to your aquarium.

Use approximately 100 – 150ml of Bio-Spheres per 25 gallons of system volume. {When introducing any biopellet media for the first time, add small amounts gradually over the period of a couple months to prevent sudden crashes of Nitrate and phosphate levels and eliminates the risk of a bacterial bloom within the system} Rinse the Bio-Spheres with purified fresh water and place in a properly sized fluidized media reactor with sufficient flow to keep them gently simmering. If they start to clump or slime up, they will be less effective and may turn anaerobic causing the production of hydrogen sulfide. The Reef Octopus BioPellet Reactor is most effective reactor for the bio-pellet media. Simply direct the output of the reactor into the same area as the protein skimmer intake. Within 3-4 weeks the Bio-Spheres will be sufficiently colonized with bacteria and will begin to reduce the organic compounds within your system. Aquariums with high bio-loads may experience a short period of temporary water cloudiness.

Bio-Spheres will remain effective until they disappear, which normally take approximately 8 months to a year. We recommend that you top off with fresh Bio-Spheres every 3 months to maintain maximum effectiveness.

Due to the number of factors that influence an aquariums Nitrate and Phosphate levels it is best to monitor your Nitrate & Phosphate levels using accurate test kits.
