上周末,在Reefapalooza,我们看到了一家名为Zenium的新公司推出了一种新的磷酸盐去除介质。起初,这种介质看起来像氧化铝的大珠子(像Phosgard),但我们后来得知,这是第一次将氯化锂提供给海缸以去除磷酸盐。

 

 

现在我们已经知道,氯化镧可以被添加到水中,使磷酸盐沉淀到一定程度,但我们实际上从未听说过锂被用于这个目的。Zenium的包装只提到了三个要点,公司没有网站,没有社交媒体的推广过,而且他们对我们问题的回答非常浅显和官方。

 

 

除此之外,我们没有发现任何关于氯化锂与磷酸盐反应的报道,仅仅是关于溴化锂的,我们真的很困惑为什么要用这个去除磷酸盐。该公司在RAP上收集电子邮件,并承诺向所有注册的人免费提供样品,所以希望Zenium公司在不久的将来能够揭示更多关于他们自己和他们的产品的信息,我们可以自己测试这种新东西到底好不好用。

At Reefapalooza last weekend we spotted a new company called Zenium hawking a new phosphate removing media. This media looks like large beads of Aluminum Oxide at first (like Phosgard) but we were told this is the first time that Lithium Chloride is being offered to the reef aquarium world for phosphate removal. 

Now we already know that Lanthanum Chloride can be added to water to precipitate phosphate down to a certain level but we’ve actually never heard of lithium being used for this purpose. The packaging for Zenium only mentioned three bullet points, the company has no website, no social media presence and their answers to our questions were pretty shallow and rehearsed. 

Add to this the fact that we can’t find any mention of a Lithium Chloride reaction with phosphate, only for lithium bromide, and we’re really puzzled at what this Zenium phosphate remover is all about. The company collected emails at RAP and promised free samples to everyone who signed up so hopefully it won’t be too long before Zenium reveals more about themselves and their products and we can test for ourselves how well this new media really works.
