A primary reason that aquarium hobbyists throw in the towel is that they tire of the endless battle against unwanted and unsightly algae. You’ve gone to the trouble of getting your aquarium looking just how you want it, so you want the water to be clear with the minimum of green gunk! Nitrates and phosphates, the two major causes of algae and other undesirable phenomena in your aquarium can be dramatically reduced by using our newly developed Bio Pearls.

iQuatics® Bio Pearls are 100% biodegradable polymers which kick-start and nurture the growth of bacteria and enzymes that consume troublemaking nitrates and phosphates in the water. They are designed to be used with a fluidised reactor, such as those manufactured by Arcadia, Bio Aquatek and AFM Marine.

Once the Bio Pearls have been activated, the bacteria and enzymes start to form on the surface of the pearls, thanks to essential nutrients contained within the pearls that prompt their growth. The bacteria feeds on the Bio Pearls built-in carbon source, whilst nitrogen and phosphorus are taken from the water as nitrates and phosphates. Whilst consuming these nitrates and phosphates from the fluidiser reactor water column, the bacteria and enzymes actually break down the Bio Pearls, leaving no undesirable pollutants in the water.

The clever bit

Once the unwanted nitrates and phosphates have been reduced to trace levels and a stable state is reached, the bacteria and enzymes no longer grow. However, if the levels of feeding or waste production increase in the tank, iQuatics Bio Pearls will spring back into action and start controlling the surplus nitrates and phosphates once more.

IMPORTANT NOTE: To avoid causing shock to your aquarium inhabitants by the sudden reduction of NO3 (Nitrate) and PO4 (Phosphate) we recommend the gradual addition of Bio Pearls to your system, the following is a guideline for the addition of Bio Pearls to a 200L aquarium.
