Product: ECONOMY DISPENSER Nitrator 500gr/750ml - loose pack Cod. MF12
Nitrates (NO3) are the result of the third and final phase of the nitrogen cycle (conversion of nitrites to nitrates) and have a toxicity not harm fish. To breed fish very delicate is recommended concentrations up to 20 mg / l. A value that is around 50 mg / l is SUITABLE for most fish, but it can encourage the growth of algae. If you find a value that exceeds 50 mg / l is necessary to change a part of free water with nitrates (OSMOTICA), you should at the same time make a siphon the gravel and enter the filter of special resins.
NITRATOR is a filter material with average grain size which intervenes on the chemistry of the water in three ways:
1) Remove the ammonia
2) Due to its gripping, this filter material unlike other, nestle anaerobic denitrifying bacteria (that feed on nitrates) which, with the passage of time, will reproduce exponentially keeping nitrates to very low values . THIS PROCESS IS ESSENTIAL FOR REGULAR PARTIAL CHANGE OF WATER BY REASON OF 10% OF THE VOLUME AQUARIUS EVERY TWO WEEKS. You need to check the value of phosphates and nitrates monthly, with the appropriate test HAQUOSS HAQUOSS NO3 and PO4 CONTROL CONTROL.
3) also contains GLUCONATE, other types of sugars and strains of organic compounds which inhibit the growth of algae, especially the CYANOBATTERI.
