Chemical filter media for the reduction of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate
Rechargeable chemical filter resin for use with new or established freshwater aquariums
Use Nitra-Zorb to help reduce fish loss when setting up and cycling new aquariums
A water filtration medium composed of natural and synthetic ion-exchange resins. Selectively removes toxic ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. Contains no phosphate, will not affect pH, and is compatible with activated carbon. Media, in convenient pouch, can be easily recharged with freshwater aquarium salt. 7.4 oz treats 55 gallons. For freshwater use only.
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.
