Caribsea BioMagnet Clarifier 16 oz
Bio-Magnet™ Cloudy aquarium water is caused by fine suspended particles such as algae, silt, and bacteria. These particles usually carry a negative charge as does most filter media. The filter media, therefore, repels these particles, and water can remain continually cloudy. Bio-Magnet™ imparts a positive electrical charg as a bacterial attractant. This unique formula quickly seeks out and encapsulates the suspended particles, enabling the positively charged particles to be drawn to the filter. Particles caught in the filter are broken down by bacteria, and suspended bacteria are repositioned onto strata where they are more efficient. The result? Crystal clear water fast...and a better biological filter!

Deltec Hose Adaptor Fitting
This hose adaptor will step down from 10mm to 6mm pipework and is ideal for stepping down pipework to feed a calcium reactor, kalkwasser stirrer or nitrate filter. Most small pumps or powerheads have a 10mm outlet and you can therefore push a piece of standard flexible hose over the outside of it. Push the hose adaptor in the other end and you will immediately step down to 6mm which is suitable for airline or the Deltec silicone hose.
