Red Sea NO3:PO4-X Contains a unique complex of carbons that are used by nutrient-reducing bacteria. Each carbon is utilized by different strains of microorganisms while maintaining the specific Carbon: Nitrogen: Phosphorus ratio required for each stage. The complex includes other organic bonded elements that are important stimulators in each stage of the reduction process. These metal and non-metals elements ensure steady bacterial propagation and complete nitrate reduction to nitrogen gas and the absorption and utilization of phosphate by the bacteria.

The fine control of the nitrate and phosphate levels provided by monitored dosing of NO3:PO4-X guarantees the gradual changes and accurate maintenance of the nutrient levels, preventing destruction of the zooxanthellae population that can cause UV shock and starvation of the corals.

Unlike some other low-nutrient regimes, correct use of NO3:PO4-X will maintain all of the beneficial micro fauna.

NO3:PO4-X is also recommended as a complete carbon source for use with carbon based de-nitrators.

NO3:PO4-X, available in 500ml and 1000ml bottles, also includes a measuring cup for easy dosing.

Notes for use: Uncontrolled reduction of the algae nutrients can destroy the symbiotic Zooxanthellae causing UV shock and starvation of the corals. For best results always use an accurate test kit such as Red Sea’s Nitrate Pro test which has an accuracy of 0.125ppm. Once lower levels are nutrients are achieved, as seen by corals displaying their natural colors instead of “Zooxanthellae” brown, it is important to start feeding with easily digestible foods such as Red Sea’s Reef Energy 2-part formula that contains all of the necessary carbohydrates, amino acids and vitamins. Efficient protein skimming is essential to provide the necessary oxygenation of the water and to remove bacterial flocks from the aquarium.

Red Sea Reef Care Recipes offer easy-to-understand and simple-to-implement instructions for reef maintenance, tailored to each type of aquarium. 3 easy steps for maintaining your reef aquarium. Water changes | Supplementing | Testing.

Select the system type that best describes your reef. The Reef Care Recipe will outline the ideal water parameters for your system, how to maintain them and what products to use.

Q
Should this product be used on a daily basis until I get the Phosphates under control?
I bought the NO3:PO4-X but it does not say if I should be using this product daily. Can you help? Please advise if this is a daily regiment?

A
Red Sea NO3:PO4 is used daily, please reference the dosage amount as you would not want to overdose. As your Nitrate/Phosphates lower you would decrease the dosage.

REVIEW
Nitrates were at 25ppm in my 90 gallon mixed reef, little higher then i liked. I tried everything to get them down. This brought Nitrate down in a week to a more comfortable 5ppm and I am now fine tuning the dose to keep it around 1-2ppm.

Good choice for Nitrate remova

REVIEW
This does work, however, you have to be patient. Takes about two weeks to fully reduce nitrate levels to near 0. Daily dose is required. After that, I use a half dose few times a week. Seems to be working well.

REVIEW
I'm only on my second week of using this product and it already cut my nitrate and P04 levels in half! I use to vodka dose in previous tanks but it took much longer to bring my levels down and would sometimes burn the tips of my SPS corals. So far I'm loving this product and so are my corals and mag...Read More
