Aquarium Systems Mega Media Marine Bio Pellets 400 / 1000ml

Filtration by Mega Media Bio Pellets 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. NP Biopellets from Aquarium Systems 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.).

The Biopellets must be used in a purpose designed “reactor”.
Depending on the water flow rate in the reactor, it is possible to target either the degradation of phosphates (rapid flow rate) or nitrates (slow flow rate).
