NOPO Biopellets from Reef DynamicsPosted on Friday, June 3rd, 2011 at 10:28 am by ReefTools
Reef Tools sponsor Reef Dynamics has released their version of the popular nitrate and phosphate reducing biopellets, NOPO. Known for their outstanding protein skimmers, Reef Dynamics is now venturing into the supplement/media market. By fueling the very bacteria that feeds on nitrate and phosphate, NOPO will provide outstanding nitrate and phosphate control. As with other biopellet products on the market, NOPO should be replenished every 3-6 months.
Reef Dynamics recommends starting dosage of 250ml of NOPO per 50 gallons of system volume in a reactor. Naturally, aquarium conditions and feeding habits will influence the ideal dosage for each system. Dosage can easily be adjusted with regular nitrate and phosphate tests. In order to reoxygenate the water leaving the reactor, it is recommended that you place the outlet need the protein skimmer inlet.
In situations where heavy feeding is required, Reef Dynamics recommends combining NOPO with standard phosphate absorbents. This is due to the (sometimes) high level of phosphates in various reef foods. We will also like to remind users that maintaining appropriate flow through the biopellet reactor is a MUST!! This will prevent hydrogen sulfide from being produced
NOPO is available in the following size/prices:
250ml (200gr) – $29.95
500ml (200gr) – $49.95
1000ml (200gr) – $79.95
10 Kilo (10000gr) – $820.00
