- What are the dimensions of API NITRA-ZORB™ filtration pouches?
The actual pouch is 7 x 7 inches square, but because of the media, the final dimensions are 7 x 6.5 inches. The pouch is sized to sit nicely in one of the baskets of canister filters. This pouch does not have any stiffness to it, and may easily be placed in the back of a hang-on-back filter, or other sizes of a canister filter. If the filter is very small, the pouch can be cut open and partial contents can be put into a small filter sock.
- Does API NITRA-ZORB™ filtration media replace other media bags?
API NITRA-ZORB filtration media should not fully replace other media; it is for temporary use only.
- How is this product different from API PHOS-ZORB™ filtration media, etc.? What makes one a good choice over the other?
API NITRA-ZORB filtration media specifically works to target and remove ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates from your aquarium, all of which are harmful at high levels for your fish. Use API NITRA-ZORB filtration media if these levels consistently spike. API PHOS-ZORB™ filtration media specifically targets phosphate and silicate in aquarium water.
