How do you use seachem de nitrate?
To get the best out of Seachem DeNitrate use it in a low flow area of your aquarium. You can use it either within the filter box of an external filter, a separate media reactor or an internal filter. The internal filter must, however, have a flow of under 200 litres per hour.
How do you recharge Purigen?
As it adsorbs waste products, Purigen® will change color from a pale blonde to a dark brown, almost black. Once it is exhausted, it can be regenerated with a solution of bleach and water. The bleach will literally “burn off” the organics that have been removed from the tank.
Do you have to rinse seachem matrix before use?
Matrix™ is completely inert and will not breakdown. It need not be replaced. Since the majority of the bacteria are internal, Matrix™ may be rinsed when needed without damaging the filter.
Should I rinse filter media?
Be sure to replace the filter media at least every three to four weeks and give the filter housing a quick rinse. If any algae or debris has accumulated in the intake tube, clean that as well.
How does Seachem denitrate remove nitrites and ammonia?
Seachem DeNitrate removes nitrates, nitrites, ammonia & organics. Seachem DeNitrate removes nitrates, nitrites, ammonia, and organics. High porosity biological media.
What should the flow rate be for Seachem de nitrate?
For best results, de❊nitrate™ should be placed to assure the flow of water through it, such as in a canister filter, chemical filtration module, or box filter. Flow rate should not exceed 200 L (50 US gallons) per hour. If higher flow rates are unavoidable, use Matrix™ or Pond Matrix™.
Why is Seachem denitrate important for fish tank?
Seachem DeNitrate helps to remove the nitrates, nitrites, ammonia and organics from your fish tank. To have a clear understanding as to why this is important please bear with us while we embark on a short chemistry lesson:
How does Seachem matrix protect nitrifying bacteria?
Seachem Matrix protects nitrifying bacteria inside the porous network so the colonies remain undisturbed. But there’s more. Under the right conditions natural denitrification can occur, lowering nitrate levels without the need for a special de-nitrification filter.
