    hey guys, does anyone have a picture off Brightwell Aquatics Nitrat-R, I bought some but when i opened the container the white plastic seal was broken and it looks a awe-full lot like Purigen.......

    just making sure this is the real stuff

    Johan I run both Nitrat R & Organit R on my system , and have installed 2 dual reactors for clients, really awesome stuff as ziyaad said. Never compared the effects to Purigen...but yes looks similar

    Yes Johan...it is very very fine i need to tune the reactors down so that it doesn't push through the mesh

    Organit-R works like a bomb it polishes the water better than Activated Carbon

    Here is pictures of the packaging...will see if i can take pics of how the beads look when im back at the shop.

    but it leaches phosphate out in the beginning wich is why its recommended to run together with phosphate remover, it is much cheaper tho, depending on the kind you buy, anyways ive only read good reviews of these stuff so i will see how it goes,
