Help and advice on shopping for: Phosphate and Nitrate Removal

Hinder algae growth in your aquarium

Phosphate and nitrate removal products are ideal for removing unwanted phosphates and nitrates from aquarium water, reducing algae growth. Our range of phosphate and nitrate removal, including brands like NT Labs and JBL, can help help maintain a clean tank.

What is phosphate and nitrate removal?

Phosphate and nitrate removers are used to remove potentially harmful substances from aquarium. They are quick and efficient, and they contribute to the healthy growth of fish in your tank.

Why might I buy phosphate and nitrate removal?

Phosphate and nitrate buildups can wreak havoc in your tank, resulting in fish death, so staying on top of them is critical to maintaining a beautiful and healthy aquarium. Reducing the levels of these nutrients not only results in a clean, healthy tank, but it also reduces the likelihood of algae problems.

What are the main types of phosphate and nitrate removal?

Phosphate and nitrate are invisible substances, so without a test kit you most likely won't know about them until it's too late, but if you can keep on top of their levels your tank stands a better chance of thriving. For instance, Aquaforest NitraPhos Minus is ideal for selectively extracting phosphate from aquarium water, thus counteracting unwanted algae growth in both fresh and saltwater aquariums, particularly common in heavily stocked aquariums in which there are large amounts of organic waste.

What accessories should I buy with phosphate and nitrate removal?

Changing the water is the quickest and easiest way to reduce phosphates and nitrates. As long as your tap water has a lower nitrate level than your tank water, replacing it will lower your nitrate level. Test the nitrate level in both your tank and your tap, to ensure that this is the case. Alternatively, live aquatic plants are nature's nitrate filters, and readily soak up nitrates, and use them as fertiliser. Heavily plant any nitrate-laden aquarium with fast-growing live plants, and they will remove all the nitrate within days or weeks.
