  • Two Little Fishies HydroCarbon 2 GAC


    TwoLittleFishies HydroCarbon 2 G.A.C. is a granulated activated carbon designed specifically for the purification of water. It is manufactured by steam activation and acid washing of a special Lignite material under carefully controlled conditions to produce an activated carbon most suitable for aquariums. Since it is extremely porous and positively does not leach phosphates that can stimulate the growth of algae.

    It has a very low ash content and therefore hardly affects pH. HydroCarbon 2 G.A.C. has a wide range of pore sizes and large pore volume that provide a rapid adsorption rate plus a high capacity for dissolved organic compounds.

    It has the highest capacity for removing water-yellowing tannic and humic compounds of any commercial water activated carbon, and adsorbs both large and small molecular pollutants, including defensive substances released into the water by soft and stony corals. The macroporous structure of HydroCarbon 2 G.A.C. also affords a high ability to resist clogging that can interfere with the adsorption of dissolved organic substances.

    The granules are the optimum uniform size for use in high capacity filters, allowing even-flow of water at high velocity with minimal back pressure. HydroCarbon 2 G.A.C. has a long useful life. After months of use it also becomes a very active biological filtration community full of beneficial bacteria and microorganisms. It can thus be used as a biological nitrification, denitrification media, or to seed new aquariums with active bacteria cultures.

    Brightwell Aquatics Xport NO3

    Dimpled Brick – the premier filtration media in the world!

    Xport-NO3 Ultra-activated Denitrification Media with Superior Performance Characteristics.


    • Utilizes NanoIntelex Technology to create an enhanced, “ultra-activated” material with the capacity to outperform conventional denitrification media by over 300%
    • Open structure and high surface area results in superior flow-through characteristics and filtration efficiency.
    • Higher efficiency relative to conventional media results in smaller space requirements to achieve equivalent denitrification.
    • May be employed to rapidly decrease nitrate in even the most heavily-stocked systems.
    • Eliminates the need to perform water changes that are carried out for the express purpose of decreasing nitrate in an aquarium system.
    • May be used in conjunction with Xport-BIO and Xport-PO4

    Nominal 9″ x 4.50″ x 2.50″ for Aquascaping, Biofiltration, and Coral Propagation
    Use one XPort NO3 BRICK for every 1,000 U.S. gallons (3,800 L) of system capacity

  • Fauna Marin Skim Breeze


    Fauna Marin Skim Breeze special absorber granules for air purification on protein skimmers. Stabilizing the pH value in the aquarium at a consistently high level. By reducing the nutrients, algae growth will be significantly reduced and coral growth will be increased.

    Skim Breeze avoids the introduction of harmful gases such as cigarette smoke and CO2 into the skimmer.

    Capacity: 1000 ml Skim Breeze per 500 liter aquarium volume: approx. 4-6 weeks. If the granulate is completely purple, it must be replaced. Recoloring of the used material does not mean that it is active again.

    Note: Do not put granules in water, do not breathe dust, use gloves. Always keep the can closed and protected from direct sunlight.

    Ingredients: Calcium hydroxide (EC 215-137-3), sodium hydroxide (EC 215-283-8), zeolites (EC 215-283-8)

    Size: 1000ML

  • Fauna Marin Zeo Light 1000ml


    Fauna Marin Zeo-Light a specially formulated Zeolite for reduction of nutrient concentrations in marine aquaria.

    This Zeolite provides nitrate- and ammonium-reducing bacteria an ideal environment.

    By using a composition of different Zeolites, carefully selected for their specific physical and chemical properties, this filter medium will reduce nutrient concentrations fast and effectively.

    How to use:

    For preparation wash the zeolite mix under tap water or use reverse-osmosis water and subsequently give the material a 24 h bath in tap water. After this preconditioning the zeolite mix is ready.

    As a basic dosage apply 1000 g Zeolith mix to 1000 L (260 US gal lqd) aquarium net volume. Make sure you determine your net aquarium volume as exactly as possible.

    Use the zeolite mix in a zeolite filter unit or in our automatic zeolite filter Zeomatic 2. The automatic cleaning process of Zeomatic 2 makes it easy to maintain a high level of filter function. Without automated purgation the zeolite mix requires cleaning in a 2 day interval. 75% of the zeolite gravel needs tobe replaced after 4 weeks (do not exchange the zeolite and UltraCarb L activated carbon on the same day, but use a14 day shift as a routine in changing both types of filter media).

    Feel free to use any zeolite mix which is declared to be suitable for marine aquaria. However, we recommend to apply a zeolite from a producer with designated experience in the marine aquarium business, since several zeolite mixes for fresh water or pond filtration are unsuitable for marine aquaria and potentially have a harmful effect.
