Elimi-Phos Longlife

Highly effective iron hydroxide granules with particularly long-lasting phosphate removing action

Product description

High levels of phosphates and organic pollutants promote unwanted algae growth and compromise health of aquarium inhabitants. Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos and Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos Longlife granules are a very effective way to remove both phosphates and organic pollutants in saltwater and freshwater aquariums. Phosphates become so strongly bonded to the Elimi-Phos or Elimi-Phos Longlife granules that it will never be released, even after the full adsorption capacity of the granules is reached. Both quickly reduce the phosphate level in the tank; Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos Longlife keeps its phosphate removing properties over an especially long period. In addition to the effective removal of phosphates, Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos and Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos Longlife take the place of activated carbon and will improve the general water quality in the aquarium.

Tropic Marin® still recommends periodic water changes in the aquarium to prevent the built up of undesirable compounds. Regular use of Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos or Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos Longlife will also help to maintain the highest level of water quality in your aquarium.

If the organic load of the aquarium is very high, start with 100 g (3.5 oz.) Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos or Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos Longlife per 500 liters (130 US-gal.) of system volume and slowly increase to the above recommended maximum. This will give your more sensitive plants and animals a gradual introduction to this beneficial change in water quality.

In order to ensure the best possible performance of the granulate, it should be mixed up and rinsed briefly under running water once a week. Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos and Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos Longlife can remain in the aquarium even after their adsorption capacity has been reached. When the phosphate level in the aquarium starts to increase again, replace the Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos or Tropic Marin® Elimi-Phos Longlife according to the dosage table above.
