Boyd Chemi-Bags - 2/pk 5" x 11.5"
Double stitched nylon filter medium bags. For use with any type of granular filter media such as: phosphate, ammonia, nitrate or sili
ca removers or activated carbon. Includes 2 nylon ties. RATED 4 STARS



AZ-NO3 Nitrate Eliminator 240mL
The AZ-NO3 (Absolute Zero - Nitrates) product works entirely by aerobic Cellular Respiration on the target Nitrate molecule, which is then removed by the Protein Skimmer. The oxidoreductases necessary f
or these processes are the chemical mechanism of an enzyme action. In the most simplest of explanations, AZ-NO3 can be considered an essential food, required by the active enzyme maltase that functions as a cellular respirator. The manufacturing process renders this product as an undesirable food to certain detrimental enzyme (amylase and invertase) that could uncontrollably proliferate in the aquarium. RATED 4 STARS

B-Ionic Calcium Buffer is the original, unique, easy to use, two
-component liquid supplement system. When using equal volumes of each component, the aquarist can easily maintain calcium and alkalinity levels with no mixing powders, disruption of ionic balance, or addition of organic chemicals. B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System does not contain phosphates or nitrates. In addition to supplying highly concentrated calcium and carbonate alkalinity required for calcification, B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System also provides all other important major, minor, and trace elements in the proper ratios to duplicate the composition of natural seawater. As a result, B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System will help restore inorganic ions lost from protein skimming and help maintain the ionic balance of the aquarium water. Starting daily dosage is 1 ml per 4 gallons of aquarium capacity. RATED 4 STARS

CaribSea Purple Up Coralline Algae Accelerator 16oz
Purple Up has a unique dual method approach to coralline algae acceleration. Ionic calcium immediately raises dissolved calcium levels in your aquarium water. Ten micron aragonite targets the live rock surface, where it dissolves in situ (in place), delivering ca
lcium, strontium, magnesium and carbonate right where it is needed. Purple Up replenishes iodine, an essential element for coralline algae tissues that quickly becomes depleted in closed systems. One bottle of Purple Up replaces the typical multi-product recipe for successful coralline algae growth favored by advanced aquarists. RATED 4 STARS

Salifert Magnesium Test Kit
Magnesium is present in natural sea water in a fairly high concentration (1350 - 1500 mg/L) and is an essential element of chlorophyll which is necessary for photosynthesis. Without photosynthesis plants, algae and coral would not be able to survive. Magnesium also helps to maintain the correct comb
ination of calcium concentration and alkalinity as it slows down the formation of calcium carbonate which can absorb many important trace elements within the aquarium. The Salifert Magnesium Profi-Test is easy to use and accurate with measurements in steps of 30 mg/L. Results are not affected by strontium and calcium interference. RATED 4 STARS

American Marine Selcon 60 mL
Aquarium food booster that features highly unsaturated OMEGA 3 fatty acids, Marine Lipids (200 mg/g), Stabilized Vitamin C (200 mg) and Vitamin B12 Cyanocobalamin (240 mcg). Soak any fre
eze-dried, frozen food or dried food to give it additional nutritional value or use directly in the tank to benefit filter-feeding invertebrates. Boosts the nutritional value of live brine shrimp. American Marine Selcon does not alter water chemistry and it does not contain Yeast, Phosphates or Nitrates. It also helps cure Head and Lateral Line Erosion / Disease. 60mL. RATED 4 STARS
