By bringing the Algae into a contained space and properly lighting it with Led from all sides, the ALR2 allows optimal growth conditions and in turn optimal export of wastes. This big increase in efficiency makes the most effective use of an algae bed possible. The ALR2 quickly consumes Nitrate and Phosphate improving water quality and increasing oxygen.
During ITCS own testing they ran the ALR2 on a reverse light cycling turning the reactor on during the time the aquarium lights were off. This method helps to increase and stabilise an aquariums pH, raises the redox, and consumes exhaled CO2 from the corals. The Algae growth was steller and nutrients both PO4 & NO3 were effectively removed.
The ALR2 is the ideal addition to all in one aquariums where there is a shortage of space for an Algae bed or simply to Turbo charge nutrient removal from your aquarium.
When the reactor is full simply remove and dispose of the excess algae and all the nutrients it has consumed leaving enough to start the cycle over.
