Nitrate Stop removes nitrates quickly and effectively.
Upon saturation of the Nitrate Stop the absorbed nitrate isn’t released back into the aquarium water.
Nitrate is the highest oxidized stage in the nitrogen cycle. In many cities and towns, this material is present in the tap- or well-water. Feeding and waste produced by fish releases further organic matter into aquarium water.
This accumulation of a high concentration of organic matter can result in a high level of nitrate in the aquarium. Although nitrate can function as a nutrient for aquarium plants, too much nitrate can be harmful and moreover one of the causes of cryptocorine rotting. A lack of diffused CO2 and O2 can create a dangerous situation, namely that the nitrate can be reduced to the poisonous nitrite.
However, the main problem in this instance is a highly developed algae growth that can get out of control quickly. For this reason, the nitrate level of aquarium water must be measured on a regular basis.
This process is made simple by use of the NO3 (nitrate) test from AQUATIC NATURE.
