The fish tank is not clear, it affects the beauty, but also depends on his own fish, although it does not prove that his ability is too bad, but these troubles are never willing to let fish friends.
I urgently need a product, so that the water is restored as soon as soon as possible, so I found protein cotton.
This is a magical tool that is placed in the filtration for 24 hours to clean water, and the effect seems to be quite good. It’s just such a good product that is not an integral part of the filter system, which makes me unexpected.
Everyone gives the positioning of protein cotton. If the normal filter is a formal employee, activated carbon is a temporary employee, and the protein cotton is the fire fighting foreign aid. Its short-term effect is particularly obvious, usually with high yellow water, green water or heavy metal ions can be treated with protein cotton.
However, due to its strong adsorption, it can achieve a good effect in a short time, but it will be used for a long time because it is too saturated. Wait until the impurities want to remove, you can take it out. If there is two days, yellow water or water is turbid, and protein cotton can be used.
Protein cotton is a product that can be used repeatedly. After the impurities were adsorbed, wash it, soak it with a high concentration of brine, then diluted the salt with water, placed in shallow water, can be stored for a certain period of time. When you are waiting for a few days, you can use it directly. After repeated use a few times, I feel that it is not good, you can change the new protein cotton.

The price of protein cotton is higher than the filter cotton, the short-term effect is better than filtering cotton, and there is also the effect of adsorbing metal ions and drug residues, almost has the function of filtering cotton and activated carbon, but it does not replace filter cotton, because The product has certain limitations. Once the adsorbed material is saturated, the adsorbed ions will be released, but it will affect the water quality, which has similar characteristics to activated carbon. The filter cotton belongs to the fine water long flow type. Although there is no such good effect without protein cotton, it is good to continue to filter residue, and the ordinary fish tank does not have to wash a filter cotton.
In terms of water quality, the filter cotton under normal state will not harm anything, while the protein cotton is different, it will affect the acid alkalinity, leading to the turmoil of water. It may still be quite like to ornamental fish, but for shrimp and snails, there are some fish friends, there are some shrimps or screws. But we sometimes want to take risks of death shrimp, because it is too good to go to the yellow water. This creates a contradictory ring: no people who have used protein cotton to try, the people used people are mixed, and they have been used to suffer and decide, they don’t have to be used in the future. I can’t help consider the protein cotton.
Is there any way to use protein cotton, does not affect the water turbulence?
Of course not. Because the main ingredients of the protein cotton are the polymer adsorption resins of the macroporous structure, it comes with both adsorption and screening. Adsorption refers to a toxic ion or nonionic substance in adsorption or non-aqueous solubility. The drug residue can be included with yellow water. Sie is actually some ions can’t pass its gap, which is blocked, including some metal ions. When we use protein cotton, we have achieved the effects or losses that have been caused by these two properties. I want to avoid in use, I can only try to change this substance, which is hard to do.

In fact, if the effect is seen, the function of the protein cotton is actually the function we wish to filter the system. The reason why water yellow or impurities during the fishing process is not enough to filter system. Replacing better filters or increases filtering. And when we lazy use first aid products, we can’t blame the troubles such as moving.
