Algae Nutrient control:
Micro-biological reduction of algae nutrients (nitrates & phosphates) occur naturally in all anoxic areas of the aquarium (inside live rocks, porous filter media and substrates). Supporting the natural processes by regular dosing of a suitable carbon source and mineral co-factors provides an easy and reliable method of incremental control of the algae nutrient levels to safely control both the presence of nuisance algae and the population of the symbiotic Zooxanthellae.

How NO3:PO4-X Works:

NO3:PO4-X is a unique complex of carbons that are used by nutrient reducing bacteria. Each carbon in the complex is utilized by different strains of microorganisms while ensuring the specific Carbon:Nitrogen:Phosphorus ratio required for each stage. The complex includes other organic bonded elements that are important stimulator's in each stage of the reduction process. These metal and non-metals elements ensure steady bacterial propagation and complete nitrate reduction to nitrogen gas and the absorption and
utilization of phosphate by the bacteria.
The fine control of the nitrate and phosphate levels provided by monitored dosing of NO3:PO4-X guarantees the gradual changes and accurate maintenance of the nutrient levels, preventing destruction of the Zooxanthellae population that can cause UV shock and starvation of the corals.
Unlike some other low-nutrient regimes, correct use of NO3:PO4-X will maintain all of the micro fauna that are beneficial for the reef. NO3:PO4-X is also recommended as a complete carbon source for use with carbon based de-nitrators.

It is strongly recommended to use the RdSea's NO3PO4 Test Kit for an accurate reading of Nitrate's and Phosphate's.

Average rating: 5 stars

5 stars title= Miracle in a bottle, 6th Jul 2013

Reviewer: Ciaran Healy

When I bought my second hand marine tank my nitrates were quite literally off the scale. The guys at seahorse recommended this product to me and within a week I had my nitrates down to a fish friendly level and within 2 weeks they were floating around zero. Amazing stuff and also does a fantastic job of keeping nuisance algae at bay.

4 stars title= Cured my algae problems, 19th May 2013

Reviewer: Darren Cole

So after trying just about everything to cure my algae problems, I was directed to this. While it took a short period to work, once it did it was brilliant. Only problem I hit was that in order for it to really work on phosphates, you must run your skimmer really wet. Other than that great product.
