Carbon is one of the most powerful filtration tools you can get your hands on. Its abilities in removing pollutants, colors, odors, toxic gasses, and residual medications proves unique. But not all carbon is created equally. Generally, the higher the quality of the carbon, the better the filtration results.
Carbon's ability to capture and retain organics, however, is also what has traditionally caused many to not use it as often as they would like in more sensitive systems such as discus habitats and reefs. These collected organics combine and release problematic organic nutrients, nitrates, and phosphates. They also limit the carbon's filtering capacity by consuming surface area and occupying space.
Solving The Organics Problem
It's alive!!! ATM introduces Supernova Living Carbon. Combined with the awesome organics consuming power of ATM Outbreak!, this pro grade activated carbon is seeded with millions of powerhouse bacteria and their enzymes that break down organics that make their way into the carbon.
This results in a longer-lasting carbon which acts as a release point for the bacteria in Outbreak! to bring more benefit to your aquatic system. Already proven in public aquariums such as Sydney, Melbourne, and Sea Life facilities for organics control, Outbreak! will replace your ordinary carbon with Living Carbon.
Carbon, The Media Bacteria Love The Most
Due to its unmatched surface area, organic composition, and rough surface carbon acts as the number one choice of housing for the aerobic autotrophs (nitrifying bacteria) that make up your system's bio-filter. Nitrifying bacteria will choose carbon as their home over any other media nine times out of ten, in other words.
Tired of throwing money away on that "new and improved bio-media"? None of these medias come close to carbon's capacity of attracting and housing nitrifying bacteria.
No Added Moisture
Most carbons have moisture added to it, giving you less carbon and more water for your buck. ATM Supernova Living Carbon has zero added moisture, which means you get up to 40% more carbon.
For the best products with proven track records at oceanic industry and aquaculture there is no substitute.
Trust The Shark.
Measure 1 cupful (114 g) of Supernova' per 100 gallons (378 l) of water. Place in filter bag or filter chamber and rinse well to remove dust. Place rinsed carbon in high water flow area(s) of aquarium or pond. If removing color and smell, use until water is clear. If removing therapeutic agents, use for 5-consecutive days and dispose. Note: Outbreak! bacteria is seeded deep within the carbon. Rinsing will not remove bacteria prior to installation.
