Also promotes beneficial bacteria colonies for improved aquarium water quality. Great for use in freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
Simply cut Acurel Nitrate Reducing Pad to fit any hang-on aquarium filters, canister filters, internal filters, wet/dry filters, as well as pond filtration units. Replace after roughly 3 weeks of use. Acurel Nitrate Reducing Pad measures 18" x 10" x 1/2" thick.
Did you know?
High aquarium nitrate levels can cause a variety of issues for your fish including stress, lower immunity, decreased ability to reproduce, and promote algae growth. Acurel Nitrate Reducing Pad will maintain safe nitrate levels in your aquarium or pond water, ultimately helping to increase your fishes' life span.
Mechanical filtration can greatly improve the health of most aquariums, and is also important for the efficiency of your biological filtration. The process is simple: mechanical media strains solid debris.
Biological filtration is the action of bacteria breaking down dangerous ammonia, converting it to nitrite, and then converting nitrite to less toxic nitrate. This article discusses how the process works.
