MetaSorb UHC

Specially designed with marine aquarium fishkeeping expert Julian Sprung of Two Little Fishies, Metasorb UHC is the solution for large commercial aquariums and marine environments. Metasorb UHC removes metals like iron, copper, cobalt, and lead from water – keeping aquatic life safe from toxic metal contaminants

Why Use MetaSorb?

Excess heavy metal in water is toxic to aquatic life. Metals may come from multiple places including the water source, foods, artificial seawater mixes, therapeutic treatments, corroding pumps, magnets and other metal equipment. When these heavy metals reach a toxic threshold, various ailments in fishes, corals and other invertebrates may occur.

MetaSorb UHC is made with patented high-capacity polymers developed for the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund Program. Insoluble in water and nontoxic, these polymers rapidly bind and permanently remove metals from fresh and saltwater to restore water quality.

MetaSorb Changes Colors Showing the Removed Metals!

Every package of MetaSorb includes a color chart to identify which metals have been removed from the water. Simply hold a used bag of MetaSorb up to the light and look through the bag to note the color. MetaSorb polymers change color depending on the metal – so, for example, if you see a slight yellow color, you have removed iron; if it’s a slight blue color, then copper has been removed.
