Grow Cheato Algae in a purpose made light reactor. keeps the refugium algae contained and out of the way of skimmer and return pumps!
For many years Reef Keepers have used Cheato Algae as a method of exporting Phosphate, Nitrates and organic wastes.
By bringing the Algae into a contained space and properly lighting it with Led from all sides, it allows optimal growth conditions and in turn optimal export of wastes. This big increase in efficiency really makes the most effective use of an algae bed we have seen. It quickly consumes Nitrate and Phosphate improving water quality and increasing oxygen.
This method helps to increase and stabilise an aquariums pH, raises the redox, and consumes exhaled CO2 from the corals.
The ALR1 Algae Reactor is the ideal addition to all in one aquariums where there is a shortage of space for an Algae bed or simply to Turbo charge nutrient removal from your aquarium.
When the reactor is full simply remove and dispose of the excess algae and all the nutrients it has consumed leaving enough to start the cycle over.
