New from Magnavore as part of the PURA filtration range, Sparkle – Liquid Phosphate Remover.
For Fresh and Saltwater Aquariums
Sparkle is a potent product yet very safe for use in salt and fresh water aquariums when used according to instructions.
Phosphates are the leading cause of unsightly algae growth in all aquariums. Removing phosphates will cause a natural decline in scum and algae formation and growth. Sparkle has been formulated to provide a safe and gradual removal of phosphates from aquarium water.
Increases Water Clarity
When high phosphate levels are present, the water may get hazy with the first few applications, but within a few hours of use sparkling-clean water will return.
Directions For Use:
Measure out indicated amount and pour slowly into aquarium next to filter intake. Do not overdose; sparkle is designed to lower high level of phosphates gradually and safely.
|Aquarium Volume||Weekly Dose|
|38 to 57 litres||5 ml|
|60 to 110 litres||10 ml|
|113 to 170 litres||15 ml|
|190 to 284 litres||20 ml|
|340 to 473 litres||25 ml|
|473 to 1135 litres||30 ml|
Sparkle greatly increases efficiency of mechanical filtration. Cartridges and filtration pads should be rinsed 24 to 48 hours after application.
This product contains Lanthanum – a natural rare-earth element.
For aquarium use only. Keep out of reach of children! Do not take internally. Avoid contact with skin and clothing. Flush with plenty of water in case of eye contact and consult a physician.
Note: Midland Reefs has added this product to the range in response to customer requests. Although the product works well and is safe when used according to the Magnavore instructions above, we’d like to add a note of caution aimed at its use in reef aquaria.
We recommend using Sparkle with caution and only use it to reduce high levels of phosphates down to a level where conventional phosphate removal media becomes economic. Dose conservatively until phosphate levels are down to around 0.1 mg/l; discontinue use of Sparkle and then switch to using Reef Scientific Phosphate Remover for long-term maintenance.
When using Sparkle monitor pH and carbonate alkalinity (dKH) as lanthanum can also precipitate carbonates which may result in a lowering of these two parameters.
Sparkle should be dosed within the filtration section of a system with the aim of removing all precipitates through mechanical filtration or by protein skimming.
We do not recommend the long-term use of Sparkle in the reef aquarium.
