Sulphur media for reactors to reduce nitrates.

In the reactor, sulphur is a food source for bacteria that also eliminate nitrates by converting them to Nitrogen gas. In time the bacteria break down the elemental sulphur and also create sulphate and hydrogen. Both of these by-products can have a negative impact on pH, by bringing the pH down, so it is important to make sure that the effluent from any sulphur reactor is adjusted back to a pH that is acceptable for a marine system.
