Heinsberg, Germany – sera siporax Nitrate-minus Professional is the new high-performance filter medium within the siporax family by sera for biological nitrate breakdown with parallel breakdown of nitrite and ammonium.
A biopolymer sphere specially matched to the unique siporax tube provides several positive properties at once and optimizes the biological and mechanical processes in aquarium filters. It serves as a reliable and safe carbon source for the bacteria that break down nitrate. The special construction of the sphere optimizes the water flow and thus improves the substance transport into the internal siporax tube. sera siporax Nitrate-minus Professional is an almost maintenance-free and, above all, long-lived filter medium. The number of water changes can also be reduced. Depending on dosage and application, nitrate can be removed entirely.
The new biological filter medium is ideally suited for the first setup in new filters, and at the same time also can be used for optimization in running systems. It can be combined with already present siporax products and enhances pollutants breakdown there as well by providing carbon.
The biopolymer spheres can be broken down biologically. They are utilized by the bacteria without remainders. The remaining siporax rings can of course remain in the filter and topped up with new siporax Nitrate-minus.
