EcoBAK is a unique and revolutionary product that will change the way marine and reef aquariums are maintained. EcoBAK is a biodegradable polymer that serves as both a substrate and a stable and consistent organic Carbon food source for bacterial strains that consume organic compounds including Nitrate and Phosphate. In effect, ecoBAK reduces nuisance algae clarifies water and supplies Planktonic bacteria as a food source for corals in the reef aquarium. EcoBAK works naturally, with NO harmful chemical additives.

What’s this mean for your tank?

You will now have water quality that previously could ONLY be obtained by frequent water changes, giant protein skimmers and expensive Zeolite systems.

You will have less problems with nuisance algae, your corals will grow better and look better (better colors) and your fish will be healthier. You will be able to feed your system more food as you no longer have to worry about raising your Phosphate and Nitrate levels.

How do you do it?

Place the ecoBAK in a suitable fluidized reactor or in many instances a media bag. Run approximately 100gph of flow thru each liter of media. Make sure you run a protein skimmer and make sure it’s working well. If possible, run the output of the reactor into the same sump area as the intake pump for the skimmer.

Usage:

Use 250ml per 50 gallons of water volume. Rinse the ecoBAK pellets in purified fresh water. The pellets can be soaked overnight to reduce floating pellets. Add the rinsed pellets into a fluidized bio-pellet media reactor. Attach a small pump to the reactor and adjust flow to approximately 100gph per liter of ecoBAK. The proper amount of flow will create a gentle tumbling effect inside the reactor. Direct the output of the reactor into the same area as the protein skimmer pump intake. Within 3-4 weeks the ecoBAK will be sufficiently colonized with bacteria to begin reducing organic compounds. Aquariums with high bio-load may experience a short period of temporary water cloudiness. Tips for best performance:

Start off with 1/3 of the recommended dosage of ecoBAK and add another 1/3 every week until a full dosage is employed.

Remember to run a GENTLE tumble. An overly aggressive tumble is counter productive.

Aquariums with very high Nitrate and Phosphate (Nitrate 40ppm+, Phosphate 2ppm+) should start off slowly, with 1/4 dosage of ecoBAK, confirm proper function of protein skimmer and confirm that circulation pumps are running and agitating the water surface.

Make sure your protein skimmer is properly rated for your aquarium. Protein skimmer manufacturers frequently exaggerate the capacity ratings of their skimmers.

Replace ecoBAK as it is consumed by bacteria.

“Great Product!!!”

I have been using the Warner Marine ecoBAK biopellets for over a year now and my Nitrates have been ZERO ever since.

“FLOW INFO”
4.0

I use many products in the quest for "less than detectable" levels of nitrates. I use polyfilters religiously and a protein skimmer sized 10 times larger than recommended. My refugium is packed with macro algae and I harvest weekly. I added this product on a whim, I purchased 3 next reef M...Read More

“Magic in a Bottle!”
5.0

I've been using Warner Marine ecoBAK Biopellets for almost two years now. Before using these, I had good water parameters but could never get my Nitrates below 10-15 ppm. I did a little research and decided to purchase a media reactor and try out some biopellets. That's when the magic happened! ...Read More

“The absolute BEST pellets”
5.0

I have been using EcoBak for over 2 years on my system. They are by far the best thing I ever added to my tank. I have a SPS dominant tank but also have lots of ricordea and zoas and LPS. They all thrive because I am able to feed the tank large amounts and never have nutrient issues. There is no sub...Read More

“If you want the best it here”
5.0

I have been using Warner Marine egoBAK Pellets for many years now and it is the best Bio Pellets on the market. I run 1000ml in my reactor at a time. In one year I will use 1000-1500ml. Ever since I been using egoBAK my nitrates have been 0. I test them with a Salient test kit.
