Nutri-Fix NP is a bio media and bacterial food source adapted specifically for the reduction of Nitrate and Phosphate in aquaria.

What is Nutri-Fix NP-X?

Nutri-Fix NP-X is a bio media and bacterial food source adapted specifically for the reduction of Nitrate and Phosphate in aquaria.

How does it work?

Unlike indiscriminate and potentially risky carbon dosing regimens such as Vodka which entail adding carbon sources directly to the main aquarium to promote bacterial spread and nutrient uptake, Nutri-Fix NP is a 100% pure, fixed carbon source bio-polymer that can be used in a fluidised reactor for the promotion of rapid bacterial growth within a controlled environment away from the main display, promoting only those bacteria relevant to the task of nutrient uptake.

The Bio-Polymer acts as a primary food source to encourage healthy bacterial colonisation which in turn assimilates or fixes Nitrate and Phosphate as that population grows. With these nutrients locked into the biomass of the bacterial population, this bio film or bacterial film can then be exported via physical agitation of the media within a reactor to make way for further growth.

The effluent carrying these bacterial films can then be directed towards the intake of a protein skimmer for physical removal via foam fractionation. Ongoing exportation of excess nitrate and phosphate are a direct result of this reaction. By passing aquarium water through a fluidised reactor housing the bio-media, a fresh constant stream of both nutrient and oxygen can be supplied.

Unlike alternate methods that encourage de-nitrification through anaerobic activity in a slow flow environment as a primary route to converting nitrate to free nitrogen gas, Nutri-Fix NP works in an oxygen rich environment by locking nitrate and phosphate into the rapidly growing bacterial biomass. Further nitrate reduction can also be witnessed as a result of underlying bacterial layers being starved of oxygen by several overlying populations.

The removal of these layers via agitation to make way for further rapid colonisation is a crucial part of the process to prevent binding of the media via bacterial mucus secretion.

definately quieter than bio pearls, which were annoyingly rattly in a reactor (Posted on 22/12/2011)

Bulk items requiring Pallet delivery are different...

Certain items, such as glass aquariums & large cabinets, require special handling and must be sent out on a pallet, this is at a cost starting from £19.99 on some pallet deliveries depending on location. We don't offer free pallet delivery unfortunately (unless stated) due to the delicate nature of the glass aquariums and insurance required to transport.


We will contact any pallet delivery purchase before dispatch to arrange a suitable delivery date for you to receive the goods. We will not dispatch a aquarium pallet delivery until we have booked a delivery date with you the customer.

Note that the pallet delivery service is a drop at kerb only service, the drivers are not insured to handle goods into homes and you are required to dispose of the pallet.
