Chemical filter media
Phosphates mainly occur due to organic pollutants in the aquarium water (fish remains, fish faeces etc.) and are responsible for the growth of algae. EHEIM phosphateout binds the phosphate and removes it from the water circulation.
Chemically acting phosphate remover inhibiting the growth of algae
EHEIM phosphateout is a special iron compound for chemical filtration. The iron binds the phosphate, removing it from the water circulation and thus reducing in stages the phosphate levels in the aquarium. In this way algae growth in the aquarium is inhibited.
If the phosphate levels and consequently the growth of algae starts to increase, this means that the filter medium is depleted and must be replaced.
EHEIM phosphateout is available for external filters in granulate form and for internal filters as a foam filter cartridge. It is free from harmful substances and suitable for fresh and marine water.
