Brightwell Aquatics NeoZeo Zeolite Filter Media - 1 KG
Brightwell NeoZeo Zeolite Filter Media
Selective zeolite media for placement in reef aquarium media reactors.
Overview of Brightwell NeoZeo Zeolite Filter Media
- Unique zeolitic medium for selective removal of dissolved organic compounds through ionic and molecular adsorption, as well as passive uptake via the beneficial microbes that colonize the media; the combined result of these processes yields improved water quality and an important source of food (bacterioplankton) for corals and other suspension-feeding organisms.
- Used in conjunction with Brightwell Aquatics MicrōBacter7 and Reef BioFuel, helps establish biological filtration and maintain an ultra-low nutrient environment for the express purpose of enabling coral coloration to be perceived without interference from zooxanthellae pigmentation.
- Provides a colonization site for the microorganisms responsible for nitrification, denitrification, and organic waste degradation in marine aquaria.
Instructions & Guidelines for using NeoZeo from Brightwell Aquatics
Rinse material in freshwater prior to initial placement in aquarium system. It must be remembered that NeoZeo is an extremely-effective adsorber of ammonium, and corals that have become accustomed to, and dependant upon, the presence of ammonium are likely to show an initial negative response to the rapid removal of this ion. As expected, this is an issue that is primarily encountered in aquaria that have been established for many years; aquaria that utilize the "NeoZeo system" from the onset are far less-likely to exhibit this sort of ammonium-related issue. The following recommendations are based upon extensive testing and will produce the best results in most aquaria.
