FAUNA MARIN ULTRA PHOS (AQUARIUM PHOSPHATE REMOVER)Regular price £17.99
Ultra-Phos is a new aluminium based absorber which safely removes phosphates and humic substances from the aquarium. The pollutants are bound to the surface of Ultra Phos and will not be released again.
Ultra Power-Phos can maintain very low nutrient concentrations in your tank. Unwanted Algae growth will be stopped and corals will show their natural colours.
Instructions and Dosing recommendation
Start with 50 gr per 200 L / 50 gal. of water. After 14 days the dose can be increased up to 100 gr per 200 L / 50 gal. of water, do NOT overdose! Check phosphate concentration regularly with reliable test kits, e.g. with the Fauna Marin PO4-Test.
In case of extremely low PO4 levels and non-detectable Nitrate levels Ultra-Phos should not be used.
Ultra-Phos is extremely strong and suitable for tanks with a high nutrient load. Ultra-Phos also removes unwanted organic compounds and yellowness. In tanks with high organic load (yellowish water) it may take a little while before the PO4 reduction becomes measurable. This is a normal process, you will notice the color change of the Ultra-Phos from white to yellow and the much clearer water in the aquarium.
For a slower adsorption rinse the filled filter bag with osmotic water before use. To obtain best results and maximize adsorption efficiency, place the material between two layers of filter wool or use a fluidized-bed-reactor. If using a fluidized bed reactor, please consider the much higher efficiency and reduce the amount of Ultra-Phos by 50%.
