Prevent algae breakouts by removing the nitrates and phosphates in your reef tank. NO3:PO4-X Nitrate & Phosphate Reducer from Red Sea is a complex of carbons each with a different strain of microorganisms in a reef ready solution.
Three Sizes Available
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
- Cost 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.

Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to lowering your nutrients with NOPOX. I am not sure if this would lower it quicker, but I personally would feel it to be more of a stable additive then vodka as its made specifically for aquarium use. I have although seen a few tanks maintained with vodka with amazing results. Please let me know if there is anything else that we can assist with. Thanks!
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.
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.
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 is recommended for daily use for keeping up with nitrate levels. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
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!
