- NO3:PO4-X Nitrate & Phosphate Reducer - Red Sea
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
- 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.

Stuff just works great on my SPS reef tanks. By buntaro on 12/12/2017buntaro would recommend this product to a friendI used to use Purigen, carbon, bio-pellet reactor, Chemi-Pure Blue and just about everything else, with frequent water changes, and ALWAYS was fighting NO3/PO4 issues. Got this stuff (which sells like nail polish remover BTW) and I've cut out all other additives and have absolute great water parameters. I wish I would have started using it earlier, had it, opened the bottle and thought "I'm not putting acetone in my tank!", but finally did and it works wonders. Love the stuff and sooo much less hassle and cost than a bunch of other expensive measures that just don't work very well.
May take a little bit to get dialed in By John on 11/28/2017John would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great product and is super easy to dose daily on my 60 gal system. It did take a bit to get my system balance, as I had a phosphate imbalance in my system. I added GFO, even though it says not to, to bring the nitrate/phosphate balance inline. Now that the system is stable, I don't even bother testing for nitrates/phosphates anymore.
no3 nopox By lisa on 10/24/2017lisa would recommend this product to a friendthis is the best carbon product for your money
Works extremely well By richard on 10/16/2017richard would recommend this product to a friendFollow directions don't overdose and make sure you have a high quality skimmer and this product works extremely well.
Awesome Product By Bouncingsoul on 10/11/2017Bouncingsoul would recommend this product to a friendI love this product and my gut feeling is that this works better than Vodka or Vinegar alone. I'm not testing nitrate and phosphate with this, I'm going by visual results and adjusting as needed. The product worked very quickly for me with algae control. I went from having cyano on the sand bed and having to clean the tank glass every day to having crystal clear water, clear sand bed, and haven't touched the glass in a week. This was after about 1 week following the recommended dosage for an SPS tank.
In hindsight, I would have started with 1/2 dosage and ramped up to the full after a couple weeks because my SPS were not happy with the change in nutrients. The LPS like Chalices, appear unaffected. I feed my fish 3-4 times per day and will start dosing Reef Energy A+B to help the SPS come back to color.
as advertised By iMygdala on 9/11/2017iMygdala would recommend this product to a friendThe instructions are clear even if the dosing cup is rudimentary. I was warned to watch for over-suppresion of nitrates and phosphates. Red Sea requires weekly testing and dosing adjustments based on results and this had been provided a very soft, gradual transition into better numbers. Instructions state that there is no need for a GFO reactor but I have continued to run one and phosphates have been stable between 0.08 and 0.04. Skimmer is a must, and this is stated in the instruction; the sludge coming out of the skimmer is much darker and disgusting than before dosing. Back to measuring cup.... For the measured nitrates, the instructions stated that the tank needed three cc's per 25 gallons. The tank is a 43 gallon Red Sea Reefer which works out 5.16 mL's, but the measuring cup just ain't close to that good. Which makes me think that the dosing is probably good if its within 20%
Smells like hell but works By Chad on 9/9/2017Chad would recommend this product to a friendBy the smell it is clearly denatured alcohol, however, THIS STUFF WORKS. Had a spike in nitrates while I was on honeymoon to nearly 50. in about a month is is down to 5. Having an amazing Skimz skimmer helps too though.
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!

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!
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.
