  • AF Phosphate Minus

    $23.00$181.00

    Efficient medium for fluidization filters. Too much food and supplements may be the cause of too high phosphate levels. Due to the unique technology Phosphate Minus effectively reduces phosphate and silicate levels in marine aquariums. Its adsorbing capabilities allow bonding large amounts of phosphate without negative influence on the aquarium inhabitants. Phosphate Minus is highly recommended both in new and in matured aquariums. In freshly set aquariums it prevents occurring high phosphate levels and in matured aquariums it reduces PO4 levels and stabilizes water chemistry. Due to maintaining the biological balance in the tank, it prevents the formation of undesirable green algae and the development of cyanobacteria. Dosage: 25-100 ml per 100 l (27 US gal) of water. Phosphate Minus should be placed in media reactors with suggested water flow of at least 400 l/hr. It’s also suitable for a passive use in filter socks. Phosphate Minus should be replaced every 4 weeks or during significant rise of phosphate levels in the water. Shortly after placing in a filtration system, the product may slightly colour water. Although, Phosphate Minus should not be rinsed before use, brown dust is an active phosphate remover and is completely harmless for the aquatic life. Brown colouration of water will disappear after a short time. Rinsing the product in a RODI water will lower its efficiency.

  • AF Zeo Mix

    $19.00$70.00

    Specially selected blend of zeolites particularly recommended in tanks with plentiful livestock and or ULNS tanks. Due to carefully designed composition, Zeo Mix is a comprehensive, multifunctional filtration media. Zeo Mix perfectly absorbs ammonia and ammonium ions in the initial phase thus inhibiting the increase of nitrate concentrations. In addition, it bonds phenols and heavy metals. Zeo Mix is especially recommended to demanding marine tanks.

    Dosage: 100 ml per 100 l of water in the aquarium. Before using Zeo Mix, we recommend rinsing it in RODI water. It can be used in a media reactor as well as in a filter mesh bag or sock. Zeolites do not require shaking – they can be placed in a fluidised filter. The recommended flow through the bed is 300-500 l/h. Zeo Mix should be replaced every 6 weeks. Zeo Mix does not lower the potassium level in the water. Because of very high adsorption capabilities of zeolites, Zeo Mix should only be used in reef tank by experienced aquarists.

    Keep away from children! Product for aquarium use only! Not suitable for human consumption!

  • Continuum Exxodus Phosphyx

    $57.00$104.00

    The Continuum advantage.

    Exxodus•Phosphyx is an extremely porous filtration medium designed to be used in all aquariums and aquatic systems with a pH of 7.5 or higher,  for chemical filtration (phosphate & silicate removal). It literally has the highest surface area of any filtration medium in the world, by far, yet it provides excellent flow characteristics! Each liter of Exxodus•Phosphyx provides over 320,000 square feet of surface area internally for bacterial colonization and even more vast surface area due to GFO spicule and “fur” formation during the ceramic formation.

    Exxodus•Phosphyx is unique in that it is doped with GFO (ferric oxyhydroxide) which is bound in the material as well as coated onto all the vast surface area and acts to remove unwanted phosphate and silicate from aquarium water more efficiently than any other known material. It works extremely well in nano aquariums, as well as systems of all sizes. It is particularly well suited to reef systems with live rock including FOWLR systems. Use in a canister filter, reactor, or other type of aquarium filter with slow to moderate water flow. Do not fluidize because the product may grind down or release particles into the aquarium due to mechanical action. It should be subjected to a low and non-turbulent flow rate, if possible.

    Use in aquarium keeping.

    If corals react negatively to the material, it may be a sign that phosphate is being removed too aggressively. If this happens, remove the material for a couple of days and then replace only half as much as you were previously using.

     

    Directions and protocol.

    Utilize a minimum of 160 ml (about 26 cubes) of Exxodus•Phosphyx for every 100 U.S. gallons, (400 L) of aquarium volume, more if phosphate levels or bioload dictates. Rinse Exxodus•Phosphyx gently in deionized or reverse osmosis water. If using for biological filtration, Pre-seed the product by placing it in a plastic bucket, submerged in aquarium water, and adding the recommended dose for your aquarium size of BacterClean or BacterGen. Allow the product to remain in this soak for 24 hours, stirring gently occasionally or agitating the liquid by pouring out and back into the container, gently. Place the seeded Exxodus•Phosphyx into your filter. The use of a pre-filtration filter floss, sponge or other mechanical pre-filtration is recommended to prevent fouling.

    Caution: Do not fluidize or allow to abrade against moving parts. Material can wear down due to mechanical action, and produce dust and fines. Keep out of reach of children (contains iron). Not for human consumption. If ingested drink water, consult with a physician.

  • Continuum Power Cleanse CC – 450g

    $35.60

    The Continuum advantage.

    Power•Cleanse CC is an extremely powerful, highly activated catalytic carbon containing huge numbers of mesopores and macropores, suited to direct adsorption of a wide range of organic pollutants in tap water, as well as marine, brackish and freshwater aquaria. It will significantly raise the ORP (unlike standard carbon) and it will outperform any standard carbon because of its catalytic action. Unlike standard carbon, Power•Cleanse CC will also remove toxic chloramine, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide from tap or aquarium water. Power•Cleanse CC is powerful, you don’t need much!

    Use in Water Filtration:

    Reverse osmosis filter membranes can be damaged by chloramine or chlorine, and they don’t remove chloramine for your aquarium. Standard carbon removes chlorine only, not chloramine and also converts much of the chloramine to toxic ammonia. Power•Cleanse CC, when placed ahead of the membrane, will remove the ammonia & chloramine as well as hydrogen sulfide to make the water safe for the membrane and your aquarium. Load a refillable filter media cartridge and place after the sediment filter and carbon block prior to the membrane in your reverse osmosis system. Change Power•Cleanse CC every 5,000 gallons (including waste water) or once a year, whichever comes first.

    Directions and protocol.

    Rinse well in cold filtered freshwater, preferably RO or distilled water, but tap water may be used. Place loosely in a polyester filter bag or filter chamber and position to force water flow through the carbon. For best results, use a particulate prefilter ahead of the carbon, such as filter floss or fine sponge. Start with about 1/4 gram of Power•Cleanse CC catalytic carbon per gallon of aquarium capacity, or about 1/5 cupful per 100 US gallons (400 L). You may gradually increase the dose, if desired. Power•Cleanse CC is powerful, start slow.

    Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains activated catalytic carbon, if ingested drink water. If in eyes flush with water.

  • Continuum Reef Basis – Captiv Phos Fe – 300g

    $26.00

    The Continuum advantage.

    Reef•Basis – Captiv Phos Fe is a supreme quality, granular ferric oxide based filtration medium particularly selected for sensitive aquarium environments. It is designed to remove free phosphates and silicates that can act as a fertilizer for unwanted algae or diatoms, directly from the water and will also remove phosphate bearing dissolved organics. It will not kill algae and does not contain any algaecides. It is safe for all marine and freshwater life.

    Use in aquarium keeping.

    Phosphates enter the aquarium primarily through tap water additions for evaporation or water changes, food addition, particularly brine shrimp, some other frozen foods and use of inexpensive carbon. Silicates enter the aquarium primarily through tap water (natural water contains silicates and water companies add sodium silicate to control equipment corrosion), poor salt mixes, and also improperly filtered additives made from tap water. Phosphates and silicates should be first controlled by the use of water made by reverse osmosis or deionization, limiting phosphate bearing foods and use of a good grade of aquarium carbon from a company you trust. Reef•Basis – Captiv Phos Fe should then be employed to reduce the phosphates that remain, to a level of .04 mg/l (ppm) or less.

    Directions and protocol.

    Rinse well in cold filtered freshwater, preferably RO or distilled water, but tap water may be used. Discard rinse water. Place loosely in a polyester filter bag or filter chamber and position to gently flow water through the medium or use in a fluidized bed filter. For best results, use a particulate prefilter ahead of the Reef•Basis – Captiv Phos Fe, such as filter floss or fine sponge. Use about 1 gram per gallon of aquarium capacity, or about 1/3 cupful per 100 US gallons (400 L).

    Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains proprietary activated ferric oxide, if ingested drink water. If in eyes flush with water.

Reef•Basis – Captiv Phos W should then be employed to reduce the phosphates that remain, to a level of about .04 mg/l (ppm) or less.

    Directions and protocol.

    Rinse well in cold filtered freshwater, preferably RO or distilled water, but tap water may be used. Warning: never rinse the first time with saltwater! Product and water may get very hot the first time it is rinsed. Wear rubber gloves and allow to cool prior to use! Discard rinse water. Place loosely in a polyester filter bag or filter chamber and position to force water flow through the beads. For best results, use a particulate prefilter ahead of the Captiv Phos W, such as filter floss or fine sponge. Use about 1 gram per gallon of aquarium capacity, or about 2/3 cupful per 100 US gallons (400 L).

    Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Never rinse in saltwater prior to first use, use filtered freshwater. Wear rubber gloves or use a plastic container. Product may get very hot upon first rinsing.

  • Continuum Reef Basis – Labyrinth Carbon – 500g

    $19.90

    The Continuum advantage.

    All carbon is not created equal! It is all black, but that is where the similarity ends. Reef•Basis Labyrinth Carbon is a supreme quality, pelletized, steam activated filtration medium particularly selected for sensitive aquarium environments. Labyrinth is bituminous coal based exhibiting huge volumes of mezopores and macropores and suited to adsorption of a wide range of organic pollutants with minimal impact on trace minerals and pH. Labyrinth will remove stains, dissolved organics and toxic gases in marine, brackish and freshwater systems. It has a very high adsorption capability with an iodine number in excess of 1,000 and a molasses number in excess of 600, with immeasurable phosphates and almost no ash content.

    Use in aquarium keeping.

    Reef•Basis Labyrinth Carbon is much more active and effective than most competing carbons, so you can use less and still get excellent results. Many hobbyists prefer to keep activated carbon in their system all of the time and others prefer to use it intermittently, as needed to control color and cloudiness. Labyrinth works fine in either case, but Continuum recommends the latter method if the aquarium has excellent mechanical and biological filtration (In marine systems this would include a good protein skimmer). In this case, use it two or three days a week or as needed. Always properly dispose of used carbon in an ecologically responsible manner.

    Directions and protocol.

    Rinse well in cold filtered freshwater, preferably RO or distilled water, but tap water may be used. Place loosely in a polyester filter bag or filter chamber and position to force water flow through the carbon. For best results, use a particulate prefilter ahead of the carbon, such as filter floss or fine sponge. Use about 1 gram of Reef•Basis Labyrinth Carbon per gallon of aquarium capacity, or about 3/4 cupful per 100 US gallons (400 L).

    Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains activated carbon, if ingested drink water. If in eyes flush with water.

  • Continuum Reef Basis Mag React

    $24.00$38.00

    The Continuum advantage.

    Reef•Basis Mag•React is a supreme quality, magnesium rich carbonate mineral specially selected for for use in calcium and magnesium reactors. It provides a gradual increase in magnesium and carbonate levels to support both magnesium level and buffering in the aquarium. It is free of chloride and sulfate and will not contribute to ionic imbalance in the system.

    Use in aquarium keeping.

    Magnesium plays a crucial role in maintaining calcium solubility and has an limiting effect on calcium precipitation in the aquarium. Mag•React provides magnesium in a gentle release over time, allowing for increased stability in both the calcium and magnesium level in the aquarium. Continuum recommends that you maintain a magnesium level of 1,290 to 1,320 ppm in a reef aquarium.

    Directions and protocol.

    Rinse well in cold filtered freshwater, preferably RO or distilled water, or used aquarium water. Place in the main or secondary chamber of a calcium reactor and use in a ratio of about 9 parts of Reef•Basis – Cal•React (or aragonite) to 1 part of this product, Reef•Basis – Mag•React. (Do not exceed a ratio of 7:1 because the alkalinity may rise beyond a desirable level if too much Mag•React is used). This ratio will normally maintain proper calcium to magnesium ratios in the aquarium. Over time, you can adjust this ratio to suit the measured levels of Calcium and Magnesium in your aquarium. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions that were furnished with the calcium reactor to adjust the rates of water flow and CO2 injection to obtain the desired concentrations of magnesium and calcium in the effluent. Over time, as your reef grows, demand for calcium, magnesium and carbonate will increase. It is possible that other supplementation of magnesium may be required. If so, simultaneous use of Reef•Basis – Magnesium dry or liquid will allow you to maintain the proper level.

    Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains activated carbon, if ingested drink water. If in eyes flush with water.

  • Continuum Reef Bio Pellet Fuel – 200ml

    $24.00

    The Continuum advantage.

    Reef Bio Pellet•Fuel is gentle on the system, it provides an alcohol free, non-flammable and sugar free rich carbon source for accelerated growth of bacteria & bacterioplankton for food sources for corals and other invertebrates as well as for the crucial functions of nitrification, denitrification, nutrient assimilation and remineralization. Proper use of Reef Bio Pellet•Fuel will result in reduction of nitrates and phosphates to very low levels providing for a cleaner and more beautiful aquarium.

    Use in aquarium keeping.

    Reef Micro•Fuel works well, as a growth accelerator, for natural bacteria in the marine aquarium by stimulating reproduction, and particularly well with microbial cultures such as BacterGen•M, BacterClean•M or BacterGen•MD. For best results, use in a fluidized bed filter or reactor with good water flow. Continuum recommends that you consider using BacterGen•M or BacterClean•M regularly, along with the Reef Bio Pellet•Fuel to replenish and accelerate the growth and maintenance of both aerobic and anaerobic bacterial populations in your aquarium. This will reduce the levels of toxic ammonia, and nitrites, as well as nitrates, phosphates and organic pollutants.

    Directions and protocol.

    Always use this product with a well functioning protein skimmer and employ strong aquarium circulation or aeration to maintain proper dissolved oxygen levels. Monitor phosphate and nitrate test readings during use. If, at any time, cloudiness develops, reduce dosage. Add Bacter products at dosages recommended on their bottles, just after use. Add the following dosages of Reef BioPellet•Fuel, depending on type of system:

    Normal Systems:

    Bio•Pellet Fuel is stronger and more efficient than most competing brands, so only add 20 ml (12 grams) per 25 US-gallons (100 L) of water to start (this is only 1/5 to 1/2 the dosage required by competing products). After two weeks usage, you may double the dose if nitrates and phosphate levels are still high. You may also continue to increase the dosage, as necessary, after initial use.

    Low Nutrient Systems:

    Add 10 ml (6 grams) per 25 US-gallons (100 L) of water to start. After two weeks usage, you may double the dose if nitrates and phosphate levels are still high.

    Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. If ingested drink water. If in eyes flush with water.
