Continnum Exxodus Nitryx Brick Nitrate reduction media For Salt water Aquarium-QEXNBRICK
- Highest porosity and largest useable surface area, per unit Weight or volume, of all filtration media available anywhere
- One brick has about 100,000 Square feet of useable surface area for bacterial colonization.
- Provides over 71,000 Square feet (6,596 Square meters) of surface area per liter of Medium.
- When properly colonized, and used as directed, it will reduce toxic ammonia and nitrites to near zero in ponds and all aquariums, marine or fresh.
- Works excellently as the only filtration Medium for the Aquarium or pond or may be employed in addition to other filtration media

The Continuum advantage.
Exxodus•Nitryx is an extremely porous filtration medium designed to be used in all aquariums and aquatic systems with a pH of 7.5 or greater, for bio-filtration. It literally has the highest surface area of any filtration medium in the world, by far, yet it provides excellent flow characteristics! Each liter of Exxodus•Nitryx provides over 40,000 square feet of surface area internally for bacterial colonization, providing for nitrification (if employed aerobically) and vast amounts of anaerobic or anoxic surface area to foster denitrification, as well.
In addition, Exxodus•Nitryx is unique in that it is doped with sulfur particles which act as an electron donor for the cultivation of large amounts of anaerobic microbes to provide for a huge denitration capacity – much larger than any other known material. It may be used as your primary or only bacterial denitration medium. It works extremely well in nano aquariums, as well as systems of all sizes. It is particularly well suited to reef systems with live rock including FOWLR systems and will not foster problems that alcohol denitrators may. Use in a canister filter, reactor, or other type of aquarium filter with SLOW water flow. Primarily designed to be submerged to foster anaerobic or anoxic conditions.
Use in aquarium keeping.
For maximum results, should be used simultaneously with Reef BioPellet•Fuel, Reef Micro•Fuel, or Flora Viv Prolifera carbon sources as a growth accelerator and/or with BacterClean•M or F, BacterGen•M or F, or BacterGen•MD microbial cultures, as appropriate, to jump start and maintain the colonization process at elevated levels.
Directions and protocol.
Utilize a minimum of 160 ml (about 26 cubes) of Exxodus•Nitrx for every 100 U.S. gallons, ( 400 L ) of aquarium volume, more if bioload dictates. Rinse Exxodus•Nitrx gently in purified tap water or aquarium water. Pre-seed the product by placing it in a plastic bucket, submerged in aquarium water, and adding the recommended dose for your aquarium size of the aforementioned bacterial products (BacterClean or BacterGen). Allow the product to remain in this soak for 24 hours, stirring gently occasionally or agitating the liquid by pouring out and back into the container, gently. Place the seeded Exxodus•Nitrx into your filter. The use of a pre-filtration filter floss, sponge or other mechanical pre-filtration is recommended to prevent fouling.
Caution: Do not fluidize or allow to abrade against moving parts. Material can wear down due to mechanical action, and produce dust and fines. Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. If ingested drink water, consult with a physician.
