Triton Organics is a concept we first heard about at InterZoo in Germany back in May but now it seems like Triton is finally to take the wraps off their next big move. After years of focusing on the elemental side of reef aquarium chemistry, Triton Organics aims to help balance out the biological side of water quality management.
The Triton Reagents Organics include two forms each of Nitrogen and Phosphorus, called Alpha and Beta respectively. Adding organics like nitrogen and phosphorus i snot just for ultra low nutrient systems but it also helps to balance out the ratio of these two important elements for maximizing biological balance. We presume that the Nitrogen Alpha is a form of ammonia while the Nitrogen Beta is a form of nitrite as evidenced by the NH and NO on their respective bottles.
Perhaps the more intriguing products of the new Triton Organics range is the Bio-Base which is described as a biological support system that “accelerates the bioavailability of trace element supplements, boosts beneficial metabolic effects in Reef Systems. Helps prevent Cyanobacteria”. This sounds suspiciously familiar to the promises made by the old Marc Weiss Coral Vital additive which used snake oil lingo to market their product but it means a lot more coming from a trusted brand like Triton.
Triton Bio-Base comes in a regular and ULNS version and we look forward more about the specifics of how these additives actually support reef aquarium biology. This is all we have to go on for now but hopefully we get detailed description of what these products are and how they work, along with the Triton Organics Carbon additives that kicked off the new direction for the German company.
