Aquarium filter bacteria: the foundation for a natural ecosystem

Filter bacteria are essential for a healthy aquarium ecosystem. They help to stabilise the biological balance by breaking down harmful substances such as ammonia and nitrite. The correct selection and care of these bacteria are crucial for the water quality and therefore for the well-being of the aquarium inhabitants. The filter bacteria and nutrient solution for bacteria from filtAS have proven themselves over many years of practical use. Another product that is ideal for starting up new aquariums and filters is Bactedrakon filter bacteria. The specially formulated, purely natural mixture of various nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria is indispensable for the biological balance in the water.

Role and benefits of filter bacteria in the aquarium

  • Degradation of harmful substances: Filter bacteria convert ammonia and nitrite into less harmful substances.
  • Promotion of water quality: A healthy bacterial flora contributes to clear and clean water.
  • Supporting the biological balance: They are essential for the natural balance in the aquarium.

Application and tips for optimum results

  • Regular addition: Regular addition of filter bacteria is recommended for a permanently stable ecosystem.
  • Correct dosage: Follow the dosage instructions exactly to achieve the best results.
  • Combination with other water care products: Filter bacteria in the aquarium can be used in combination with other maintenance products such as humic acids to further improve water quality.

DRAK Phosphareduc: Efficient phosphate removal for clear aquarium water

DRAK Phosphareduc phosphate binder is a highly effective adsorber granulate based on iron(III) hydroxide that has been specially developed for the irreversible removal of phosphates from aquariums and ponds. This product plays a central role in algae prevention by removing one of the main nutrients from the algae.

Application and mode of action

DRAK Phosphareduc Phosphate Binder is suitable for use in freshwater, seawater and ponds. Before use, it should be rinsed thoroughly in water to remove any remaining dust particles and to avoid turbidity. It is recommended to place the phosphate binder in the aquarium or pond in such a way that the granules are well surrounded by water, for example in a pot filter.

Advantages of DRAK Phosphareduc phosphate binder in aquariums and ponds

  • Reliable reduction of phosphate levels: By binding phosphates, their concentration in aquariums and ponds is effectively reduced.
  • High effectiveness at low cost: The product offers an efficient solution for controlling phosphate levels without high costs.
  • High loading rates: Thanks to its highly porous surface, the granules can bind a large amount of phosphates.
  • Easy handling: The granules are packaged in a tear-resistant polypropylene fleece and are ready to use and easy to handle. If not, a filter sock is supplied.

The DRAK Phosphareduc phosphate binder for aquariums and ponds is therefore an excellent choice for aquarists looking for an efficient and user-friendly solution for controlling phosphate levels and preventing algae. We recommend Carbodrakon - Special Activated Carbon Pellets for the rapid removal of medication residues as well as yellow and toxic substances.
