Triage First Response


ATM Triage First Response leaps into action to address the emergency removal of ammonia toxicity in situations such as bio-filtration stalls or failures, power outages, or any other instance which results in accumulation of unwanted toxic nitrogenous compounds.  Slime coat support and healthy conditions are promoted while toxic conditions are demoted.

When it comes to water conditioning and the use of neutralising agents, ATM has differs from the rest of the back when it comes to philosophy.  ATM believe in ever keeping attention on bio-filter health, rather than the idea that problems can be solved with chemicals.  Triage contains no oxygen depleting chemicals that are found in other products that act as neutralising agents.  Furthermore, ATM stresses the use of neutralising agents only when they are necessary rather than frequent functions such as water changes.

Neutralising Priority

Because ammonia is typically the compound that accumulates in bio-filtration failure, ATM Triage First Response works with a priority toward ammonia first. As ammonia disappears, ATM Triage First Response kicks into its secondary function by helping limit the toxic effects of nitrite,
if present, in subsequent doses.
