Ask BRS Overview Unique zeolitic medium for selective removal of dissolved organic compounds through ionic and molecular adsorption, as well as passive uptake via the beneficial microbes that colonize the media; the combined result of these processes yields improved water quality and an important source of food bacterioplankton for corals and other suspension-feeding organisms. Provides a colonization site for the microorganisms responsible for nitrification, denitrification, and organic waste degradation in marine aquaria. Instructions and Guidelines Rinse material in freshwater prior to initial placement in aquarium system. The following recommendations are based upon extensive testing and will produce the best results in most aquaria. Add 2. This material will be fed upon by various aquarium inhabitants and is also removed via protein skimming and mechanical filtration.

Technical Background Zeolites are naturally-occurring minerals that have specific ion-exchange properties; they essentially exchange ions of like-charge with their surrounding medium in this case, aquarium water.
The reward for investing the time required to attain this balance all water parameters and lighting being optimal is typically corals that exhibit spectacular coloration. The rate of nutrient-uptake that this system achieves often exceeds the rate of nutrient-addition, particularly in aquatic systems that are rarely-fed.
To help maintain the population of microorganisms that become established in NoZeo, an appropriate carbon source should be added on a continual basis to ensure population viability; Reef BioFuel performs this task efficiently and without polluting the system. Once established, occassional supplementation of MicrBacter7 is recommended to replace those microorganisms that are lost to the water column becoming planktonic and available for predation by corals, sponges, and other suspension-feeding invertebrates during routine disturbances to the NoZeo media, itself, as well as when replacing a portion of the media Instructions and Guidelines: Rinse material in freshwater prior to initial placement in aquarium system.
It must be remembered that NoZeo is an extremely-effective adsorber of ammonium, and corals that have become accustomed to, and dependant upon, the presence of ammonium are likely to show an initial negative response to the rapid removal of this ion. The following recommendations are based upon extensive testing and will produce the best results in most aquaria.
Add 5 ml MicrBacter7 per US-gallons daily. Add 2. Once the first 5 weeks of usage has passed, adjust the dosage of MicrBacter7 and Reef BioFuel according to the appearance of the system, the inhabitants, and as dictated by the water parameters. Due to the highly-porous nature of NoZeo and the rate at which it is colonized by microbes, some degree of surface impaction with latent organic material and microbial biomass will invariably occur with time.
This material will be fed upon by various aquarium inhabitants and is also removed via protein skimming and mechanical filtration.

I agree with most that the manual is not the best. Green hair algae still appears to be on the retreat, but over the last few days I have been seeing cyano again argh! The time now is Maintaining a healthy reef aquarium or any aquarium, for that matter is largely dependant upon limiting the concentrations of nutrients such as nitrate and phosphate; in doing so, the general health of the inhabitants tends to be relatively high presumably because more attention is being paid to water quality and the appearance brightweell the system remains more pristine. I am in to my third week, and my results from just the Neozeo media, microbactor7, and now the Biofuel are quite noticeable already. Brightwel have one dose of Biodigest left from my Prodibio and wil do that most likely today when I add the first batch of neozeo media to the eheim. Brightwell Aquatics NeoZeo method. March 4th, removed GFO so I could turn up the flow on the zeolite rocks.
