Tropic Marin NP Bacto Balance 500 ml.

Mixture of selected organic compounds to promote the incorporation of nitrate and phosphate in supplementary biomass.

The ratio of nutrients is ideal for corals, sponges and other invertebrate animals found in reef aquariums when nitrates and phosphates are maintained at the lowest possible levels while maintaining the important balance between these key nutrients.

With its balanced composition of carefully selected organic and inorganic nutrients, NP-Bacto Balance acts to increase the incorporation of nitrates and phosphates in additional biomass, reducing nitrate and phosphate concentrations in the water while improving coloration and growth of corals, sponges and other filter feeders.  In this way, a nitrate and phosphate deficiency in the aquarium is prevented while at the same time the balance between the compounds is improved.


Usage Instructions:

Dosing depends on the age of the aquarium:

In the case of new and young tanks (0-1 years old*) no more than 0.25 ml per 100 l /25 US-Gal. tank content should be added per day. In tanks of a medium age (1-2 years old*) up to 0.5 ml per 100 l /25 US-Gal. can be dosed per day, whilst mature tanks (>2 years old*) can receive from 0.5 to 1 ml for 100 l /25 US-Gal. aquarium water per day. A dosage of 1 ml per 100 l /25 US-Gal. tank content per day should not be exceeded under any circumstances.

In order to enhance the effect of NP-Bacto Balance, however, the dosage may be increased every 2 weeks by 0.25 ml per 100 liters / 25 US-Gal. of aquarium water daily, in no case more than the maximum daily dose of 1 ml each 100 l /25 US-Gal. of aquarium system water volume. For best results, add Tropic Marin NP-Bacto Balance to a high water flow area in the tank at the beginning of the lighting cycle. Attention: A dosage of 1 ml each 100 l /25 US-Gal. of aquarium system water volume must not be exceeded. If a clouding of the tank is observed after the elevation of the dosage of NP-Bacto Balance, the dosage should be reduced to the previous level.

  1. A balanced carbon dosing system Review by Raj
    Product Rating:

    used it for 2weeks so far . the product is supposed to work like carbon dosing without removing N and P fully . For a 2 week so far its has shown decent results . there are some caveats to the products , it works best if you have low nitrate and phosphate less than .1 . It may not work well if you have high nitrate and low phosphate . before you start using it - get the current nitrate to 5 and phosphate to < .1 . Go slowly . Do not stick to the dosing max given , stop when you see your corals are changing and revert to the previous dose, which is why you should increment it slowly (Posted on 10/3/2018)
