Two Little Fishies NPX BioPlastics are pelletized biodegradable polymers that provide a time-released source of food for bacteria that assimilate nitrate and phosphate. As bacteria develop on the pellet surfaces, excess growth sloughs off due to the tumbling in a fluidized filter, and these bacteria can be removed with a protein skimmer or serve as planktonic food for filter-feeding invertebrates such as corals, clams, and sponges. Anaerobic zones also develop within the pellets, thus promoting denitrification there. Why bother with dosing Vodka daily when you can just use NPX BioPlastics and let the bacteria work for you?

Kit Includes:
  • Two Little Fishies Phosban Reactor 150
  • Two Little Fishies NPX Bioplastics Nitrate & Phosphate Reducing Polymer Media - 200ml
  • PhosBan Reactor NPX Screen
* A water pump is required and sold separately. We recommend the Danner Mag Drive 3 or a comparable pump.

The reactor is good enough for an aquarium of 150 gallons, the pellets provided in the bundle will start you off and are good for up to 50 gallons.

Q
What size pump?
I have been having issues with nitrate in my Reef aquarium. I want to add this to my system. I already have 2 phosban reactors running off my return line to the tank. I will need to run this one separately. What is the recommended pump size for the bio- pellets. Thanks

For biopellets, stronger water pressure is needed to tumble the pellets in the Phosban 150 reactor. We recommend the Mag Drive 3 or the Rio 1700.

REVIEW
Great reactor and well made and can't beat the price. The biopellets have lowered my nitrates 20ppm in 2 weeks and are almost down to zero. I highly recommend these two products to anyone thinking of using biopellets.

REVIEW
So far so good. Reactor with bioplastic media has been running in the tank's sump for a little over a week. The reactor was easy to set up and there was good support from the retailer and 2 little fishies for chosing an appropriate pump and setting flow. I have not tested nitrates or phosphates yet ...Read More

REVIEW
I have to do 2 reviews since I'll review the bioplastics separate from the reactor itself. TLF Media reactor: I give this 5 stars since it's cheap and versatile for any media you would use it for. It doesn't leak. Other reviewers wrongly review this based on the media they used, plumbing, or pum...Read More
