Ultra-activated Denitrification Brick Media with Superior Performance Characteristics
Highest porosity and largest useable surface area, per unit weight or volume, of all filtration media available anywhere!
Provides over 6.596m2 (71,000 square feet) of surface area per liter of medium. One brick has about 9.294m2 (100,000 square feet)of useable surface area for bacterial colonization.
Also reduces phosphate significantly and dissolved organics.
So porous that it wicks water and stays wet for days when drained, allowing bacteria to remain viable after an equipment failure and ready for the repair.
Doped with Aragonite to buffer pH at bacteria level, preventing acid buildup which eventually would kill the bacteria and reduce capacity (which is what happens in competing products).
23 x 11,5 x 6,4cm (9″ x 4.5″ x 2.5″)
Use one XPort NO3 Brick for every 1,000 U.S. gallons ( 3,800 L ) of system capacity, more for heavy bio loads. Rinse material well with aquarium water or purified tap water. For superior results, seed the material using FlorinBacter, MicrōBacter7 or MicrōBacterCLEAN, as appropriate for your aquarium, by placing XPort NO3 Plate in a plastic container, filling it with aquarium water, and then adding the full recommended dose of either bacterial product, based on the size of your aquarium, to that container. Allow to stand overnight and then add the seeded XPort NO3 Plate to your system. You may also add the water back to your aquarium, if desired. It is recommended that you use sponge, fine filter floss or other mechanical filtration ahead of XPort NO3 Plate to prevent clogging with organic material. For maximum results, also provide a good carbon source for growing bacteria, such as Brightwell Katalyst bio pellets or liquid Reef BioFuel or Florin Axis, as appropriate for your aquarium, as directed on their label.
