NPX BioPlastics® are pelletized biodegradable
polymers that provide a time-released source of
food for bacteria that assimilate nitrate and
phosphate. The bacteria grow on the pellet
surfaces, and excess growth sloughs off due to
the tumbling in a fluidized filter. These bacteria
can be harvested with a protein skimmer or serve
as planktonic food for filter-feeding invertebrates
such as corals, clams, and sponges. Anaerobic
zones also develop within the pellets, thus
promoting denitrification there. Why bother with
dosing Vodka daily when you can just use NPX
BioPlastics and let the bacteria work for you?

diodes. Where PacificSun has really excelled is in the pioneering of controlling
LED lights with the use of Bluetooth-enabled smartphones and computers. The
