Blue Treasures NP BioPearls 500ml - Bio Pellets
For Nitrate and Phosphate Reduction
BioPearls are pelletized biodegradable polymers that make waste from
the water, mainly nitrate and phosphate, are converted into bacteria.
This keeps the aquarium water achieve natural marine water level. The
new formula NP Reducing BioPearls are composed of 100% pure biologically
degradable polymers that can be placed in a fluidized filter or mini
filter canister. The pellets will allow aerobic growth of bacteria which
consequently will consume nitrate and phosphate simultaneously. The
bacteria will use up the carbon from the BioPearls, whilst nitrogen and
phosphorus are taken from the water as nitrate and (ortho)phosphate.
This conversion of organic BioPearls (together with inorganic nitrogen
and phosphorus) into microbial biomass is called immobilization. In
addition, anaerobic layers will develop, resulting in additional
-Maintain sufficient water flow through the NP BioPearls, to prevent production of hydrogen sulphide gas.
use of NP BioPearls in marine aquariums must be accompanied by the use
of a protein skimmer to achieve the export of bacteria and assimilated
nutrients. It is not necessary for the outlet of the filter containing
pellets to be positioned near the intake of a protein skimmer, but it is
necessary to have a protein skimmer running on the system.
use of ozone and UV will negatively affect bacterial recruitment of the
BioPearls and increase the maturation time of the filter. So we won’t
recommend use the NP BioPearls with ozone and UV at the same time when
