You will not need to use this product if your levels are undetectable. While this provides food for bacteria it will most likely result in over dosing and issues such as excess bacteria such as Cyano.
Typically with Bacteria growth systems such as NoPox, Zeovit, and Bio-pellets it is not recommended to run UV sterilizers as they can keep the bacteria from repopulating in the tank as needed! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This is recommended for daily use for keeping up with nitrate levels. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
It may be possible however you would need to perform some math by seeing how much Top Off water you add each day. We do not recommend this as the nopox will settle out in the RO water and not be mixed evenly. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This product will decrease nitrate levels in the tank by feeding the bacteria and growing the population that additionally consume nitrates. Diatoms will typically not be impacted and usually will fade after a few days without light or siphoning out.
Red Sea's NO3:PO4-x is a part of their Algae Management Program that combines highly effective, controlled biological reduction of nitrates and phosphates for all reef and marine aquariums. Between testing and dosing the proper additives, nutrients in the aquarium can be easily managed with no undesirable effects. NO3:PO4-x helps promote naturally occurring nutrient-reducing bacteria that already exist in your aquarium.
- Reduces and maintains NO3 and PO4
- Cose Effective
- 100% Reef Safe (do not overdose)
- Nitrate and Phosphate reduction in a controlled setting
We highly recommend starting with half the recommended dose for your aquarium type and using high-quality Nitrate and Phosphate test kits during implementation. Keeping a steady dosing regime is key, and daily dosing is highly encouraged. We prefer to use a dosing pump system for daily dosing, which keeps the doses very precise and reliable.
Dose of NO3-PO4-X
|Mixed Reef||1-2ppm||0.08 - 0.12ppm||2mL per 25 gallons|
|SPS Frags||1-2ppm||0.08 - 0.12ppm||2mL per 25 gallons|
|SPS Dominant||0.25 - 0.5ppm||0.01 - 0.02ppm||1-2mL per 25 gallons|
|Ultra Low Nutrient SPS||0ppm||0ppm||1-2mL per 25 gallons|
|Marine Fish||<10ppm||<1ppm||3mL per 25 gallons|
Great product By con on 3/27/2017con would recommend this product to a friendThis product works great I'm very happy with my purchase! But I would recommend dosing half of what it says to dose for your first use.
Nitrate cut in half By Juan on 3/26/2017Juan would recommend this product to a friendI received my nopox on Friday with a Redsea nitrate test kit today Sunday three days of use My nitrates are half off while they were on Friday
Works as advertised By Hasso on 1/13/2017Hasso would recommend this product to a friendWorks very well but in my case took almost 4 months for No3 to go from 35ppm to 3ppm
And Po4 0.00ppm
Works Great By Dave on 1/1/2017Dave would recommend this product to a friendI've been using this for a couple of years now and I must say nothing gives me the peace of mind that my nitrates will be kept in check. I like to feed my fish and corals and have the freedom to do so with the help of Red Sea.
works great By Dustin on 12/9/2016Dustin would recommend this product to a friendWas skeptical at first until I read some reviews and thought I would give it a try. In about a week was able to lower nitrates from 7 ppm to 0 and phosphate from .42 to 0. I was only going to use this product until my new lid came for my GFO reactor now considering using this full time!
worked brilliantly By Terry on 11/23/2016Terry would recommend this product to a friendI had a persistent difficulty getting nitrates under 5 ppm and SPS started dying and I had cyano problem. I nuked the cyano with chemiclean and started using nopox. AT 12 ml/day I was down to near zero nitrates in a few days (on a 200 gallon tank). I've dialed it into 8 ml/day now and that keeps nitrates at near zero and my coral is doing great.
Excellent Product! By Shane on 9/12/2016Shane would recommend this product to a friendNo3Po4-X is an amazing product. For over 5 years I have constantly fought Nitrates and Phosphates. With this product I was able to get my Nitrates down from 20 to under 5 and my Phosphates from over .10 to under .02 in less than a week using Salifert to test. Maintenance dose is at 1ml a day on my 34g tank keeping nitrates stable at about 1ppm and phosphates undetectable with Salifert which im assuming is around .02 or so. Do not overdose this product. If you come back to your tank and you notice white film you have overdosed and need to cut the dose in half and test.
Excellent Product By Dave on 8/24/2016Dave would recommend this product to a friendNo3:Po4-X has become an essential item for my reef system. It allows me to feed my fish without the worry of high nitrates.
?? By Darrin on 7/4/2016Darrin would recommend this product to a frienddont know about this, worked awesome on my 55 gal tank dosing 12ml a day kept my nitrates at 0, dosed 19 to 30 mils a day on my 125 gal tank nitrates never below 50 and had some clear slime clogging up everything
This is the "silver bullet"! By Dick on 5/16/2016Dick would recommend this product to a friendI have a BioCube 29, in operation successfully for over 4 years. I put every modification on it that it can accommodate: Hydor skimmer, InTank media tower, Innovative Marine bio-pellet reactor, Maxspect LEDs, upgraded Cobalt pump, etc. I have been successfully growing softies and some SPS. I have a montipora plate that has grown from quarter size to 8 inches in diameter. However, for all this time I have been fighting nitrates and phosphates. Nitrates have always been in the range of 12-16 ppm, and phosphates .06-.10. I've carbon dosed with Continuum Microfuel; tried two different brands of bio-pellets; tried several different brands of GFO; have been religious about weekly water changes (about 20%) and changing my Purigen pillow every two months. I finally decided to try NO3:PO4-X, and I'm glad I did! After one week my nitrates dropped to 4 ppm and my phosphates to .02. After the second week my nitrates are at 1 ppm and my phosphates are at 0. I followed the directions carefully. Resist the temptation to overdose. This stuff works where nothing else has, and I could not recommend it more highly.
Cautionary Note: Efficient protein skimming is REQUIRED if you use NO3:PO4-X. By Richard on 4/6/2016Richard would recommend this product to a friendThis is a cautionary note to 'reefers' who have not used this product before and who may not typically read instructions thoroughly prior to using a new product. After I received the product I did my usual routine of reading everything that came with it. I found a brief note stating that efficient protein skimming is required in order to maintain appropriate oxygen levels in the water. That is because NO3:PO4-X increases bacterial activity which in turn causes oxygen levels to drop below levels safe for your aquarium inhabitants. Red Sea confirmed to me via Email that this is in fact a requirement, not a recommendation. Since I am one of the minority of 'reefers' who relies upon frequent and consistent water changes instead of skimming I returned the product. All other components of the Red Sea Reef Care Program (RCP) can be used without protein skimming which was also confirmed to me by Red Sea Customer Service.
Great Nitrate Reducer By Steve D on 3/21/2016Steve D would recommend this product to a friendI always buy the larger quantity as I use it to keep Nitrates down in my 120G Reef Aquarium. You can always tell if I forget a few days as the corals start to suffer. Its great for Nitrates as long as you don't overdose as you will get some stringy growth in your sump and return nozzles. Just follow the dosage daily for your water volume and this stuff works like a charm. It does work better on Nitrates than it does on phosphates but I make my own RODI with 0 TDS at home so phosphates are low anyway.
