Introducing Polyplab Lab One / Nano One which is a revolutionary All in One calcium supplement for reef aquariums containing balanced levels of calcium, alkalinity and magnesium. It is a complete calcium system in a single bottle for that you need for your reef tank to maintain the perfect parameter without being afraid of overdose creating imbalance of your reef system. Traditional calcium supplementation methods such as calcium reactors and two-part systems can be confusing and troublesome. Additionally, they often require extra water testing and steps to correct ionic imbalances. One was designed with simplicity and convenience in mind for every reefer, so that more time can be spend appreciating your tank . Every addition made with One ensures balanced levels without building up any unwanted residual ions. Proper dosing with One maintains water parameters of: 400 ppm Ca 1300 ppm Mg 7 dKH Features: Phosphate and silicate free Does not elevate salinity No residual ion build up over time Does not contain insoluble calcium carbonate Maintain pH around 8.1 - 8.2 Size: 500 mL So How does Polyplab One work ? One is engineered from two forms of acetate and hydroxide salts. It contains calcium ions, magnesium ions and acetate ions. When dosed, the calcium and magnesium ions are freely available for uptake by corals, clams and other reef organisms. The acetate ions are promptly metabolized by bacteria to create biologically available bicarbonate. This process provides alkalinity to your reef aquarium. The hydroxide salts in the product are present to help maintain a higher pH as well as to provide more alkalinity. Dosing Schedule for One Daily Dosing: To obtain maximum tank stability, we highly recommend daily dosing. For every 50 gallons ( 400 litres ) of total aquarium volume, dose 1-4 capfuls (5-20mL) in an area with good flow and away from direct contact with corals. Sumps are an ideal dosing location. Dosing Twice a week: If your schedule does not permit daily dosing, dosing twice a week may be more convenient. For every 50 gallons ( 400 litres ) of total aquarium volume, dose 2-10 capfuls (10-50mL) in an area with good flow and away from direct contact with corals. Sumps are an ideal dosing location.
Polylab Reef Roids Although originally engineered for feeding the Goniopora genus corals, this product has been very well received in the hobby as an excellent food source for all filter feeding corals. The particle size of Reef-roids of around 150-200 microns make it an ideal size for Goniopora and other filter feeding corals to feed on. When using Reefroids, you will notice excellent polyp extension on all filter feeding corals. Zoanthids, Mushrooms and Ricordia will demonstrate a distinct feeding response. And with continued use, your filter feeding corals will experience faster growth and better colors. Reef-roids mixes remarkably well into water and does not float to the surface like most dry coral foods. This ensures a long duration in your water column to minimize food waste. Size: 4 oz. - Feeds 100G aquarium for 3 months (2X per week) Unlike many other "coral foods" on the market, Reef-roids is NOT made with processed fish meals or other ingredients that can rapidly degrade water quality. Reef-roids is a mixture of naturally occurring marine planktons including a specific species of zooplankton that is unique to our product.
We are pleased to introduce the new System Reef Resh from Polyplab ,which offer a new innovative four part system for Reefers looking for True Low Nutrient system for their delicated Reef . By harnessing the power of microbial activity, the Polyplab Reefresh system provide a bacteria source that consumes any excess nutrient in the tank, leaving a low nutrient tank environment removing Nitrates and Phosphates in the Tank. It provide an easy, cost effective and effective solution to remove excess nutrients in your aquarium. Say goodbye to expensive reactor and media replacement . System Reef-resh is ideal for the discerning SPS enthusiast looking to bring the coloration of their coral to the next level . The four part of the Reef – Resh consist of ; 1) RF – Genesis Concentrated mixture of dromant bacteria Working with a Canadian Biotechnology firm, Polyplab have manufactured a custom blend of bacterial strains with concentration of over 80 billion cells/ml. In their planktoinic state, these bacteria serve as a highly nutritious food source for corals and zooplankton. Most importantly, these complimentary bacterial strains form nutrient consuming biofilms. Size: 50 ml 2) RF - Fuel Amino Acid enriched bacterial food source Polyplab have developed a unique fusion of organic carbon sources enriched with amino acids. RF-Fuel is a safe but highly effective carbon-based bacterial food that will steadily improve water quality. The process is very gentle and it will not have any detrimental effects on your existing corals. Size: 480 mL 3) RF - Acids Concentrated fusion of select amino acids The role of amino acids becomes critical in a low nutrient environment. RF-Acids is blend of specific amino acids that our research has shown to improve coral growth and colouration. Those that inhibit coral growth have been excluded from this highly concentrated mixture. Size: 50 mL 4) RF – Plus Concentrated vitamin enriched coral food RF-Plus is a water-stable mixture of liquid and solid coral foods that have been enriched with vitamins and minerals. Vibrant coral colouration results from regular use and is most noticeable for SPS corals. Additionally, unlike any other coral food, RF-Plus has been engineered to be free of nitrates and phosphates. Size: 50 mL So How does the system works? The four components of the system which consist of RF-Genesis, RF-Fuel, RF-Acids and RF-Plus. RF-Genesis contains a custom blend of bacterial strains. These specific strains of bacteria, in key ratios, are the backbone of the RF system. As planktonic free floating bacteria, the bacterial cells in RF-Genesis are consumed by corals and provide a form of nutrition commonly found in the ocean. As System RF matures, RF-Fuel acts as a bacterial fuel source and causes the strains in RF-Genesis to reproduce and form biofilms. These biofilms consist of microbes that feed off excess nutrients in your water column. These biofilms will eventually die off and will be removed by your skimmer. As the biofilms are removed, the absorbed nutrients are removed with them, creating a pristine environment. So how do corals obtain their energy in this low-nutrient environment? Planktonic bacteria will not provide the all of the necessary nutrition for corals. This is where RF-Acids and RF-Plus come into play. These two components of the System provide coral nutrition without spoiling the quality of your water. When used as instructed, RF-Acids and RF-Plus ensure that your corals will not starve in this low nutrient environment. These two components will provide excellent nutrition for vivid coloration and rapid growth of your corals. Whether you are a beginner hobbyist or a highly experienced reef keeper, System Reef-resh™ will make a true low-nutrient environment much easier to achieve. By following the guidelines of System RF, hobbyists can achieve pristine water quality to create a near perfect environments in their home aquariums.
Polyplab Medic Medic is a highly effective water conditioner used to control external fish parasites present in both marine and freshwater environments. It contains a reef-safe oxidizing agent and is particularly effective against: Marine Ich - Crytpocaryon irritans Freshwater Ich - Ichthyophthirius multifiliis Marine Velvet - Amyloodinium ocellatum Features • Completely reef-safe • Buffered to maintain physiological pH • Does not harm invertebrates • Does not harm nitrifying bacteria Size: 30mL - (Treats 550G of aquarium volume) How Medic works: Many external fish parasites have very similar life cycles. In particular, these parasites have an "attached" stage (trophonts), a "matured" stage (protomonts), a "reproductive" stage (tomonts), and a "free-swimming" stage (theronts/dinospores). Most available treatments do not target the free-swimming stage of the parasite which is one of the primary difficulties in dealing with these infections. Research with ciliated protozoans has shown that the "free-swimming" stage of these parasites have remarkably consistent hatching times. We have engineered our product to be most efficient during this stage. Our conditioner targets the trophont stage of the parasite but is also very effective in disrupting the life cycle during the "free-swimming" stage. Thus, when using Medic, hobbyists should try to maintain the highest concentration of the medication during this "free-swimming" timeframe - when the oxidative component in the medication is particularly effective against theronts/dinospores. Directions for tank treatment: Use one level scoop of Medic for every 50G of your system volume twice per day. Dose once in the morning (Before 10am if possible). Dose once in the evening (After 10pm if possible). Continue to dose for 10 days. Note: UV, ozone and carbon must not be used during the treatment. Protein skimmers can be run as normal. The infection may seem to disappear when white specks are no longer visible on the fish. This is merely part of the natural cycle of the parasite and you must continue dosing the product for the entire course (10 days) to be maximally effective. After treatment is complete, run granular activated carbon for 2 or 3 days. Store product in a cool and dry location, away from direct sunlight. It is safe to overdose medic for a heavily infected tank.
