Use DrTim's Aquatics NP-Active Pearls in a fluidized reactor to ensure constant, gentle flow of water that is high in oxygen.

|Directions for Use:|
NP-Active Pearls should be used at a rate of 3 ml of Pearls per one gallon of aquaria water (1/4 cup NP-Active Pearls per 20 gallons of water). However, when first starting with Pearls use 1 ml per gallon and add more Pearls over the first month. Note: It can take 2 to 3 weeks for the beneficial bacteria to colonize the Pearls and for you to start to see a reduction in nitrate and phosphate. NP-Active Pearls will be consumed over time and will need to be replenished. Do not wait until the reactor is empty of Pearls before adding more. Replenish Pearls every 6-9 months as needed.
