MicroBacter 7 is a complete bioculture of beneficial microbes and natural enzymes for establishing biological filtration and rapidly improving water quality in freshwater and marine systems. Enhances the rate of nitrification, denitrification, and organic waste degradation in your tank or pond. The result is clear, clean aquarium water and a healthier environment.
Specifications Package Size 17 OZ. - 5OO ML
Aquarium Type FRESH OR SALTWATER
Instructions Shake product well before using. Mix appropriate volume of MicroBacter7 with 8 fl.oz. of aquarium water in a clean container prior to addition to aquarium. If using a pipette to dispense below water level of container or aquarium, be sure to thoroughly clean pipette with fresh water prior to placing tube back into MicroBacter7 bottle; failure to do so will contaminate the product. Best results may be obtained by adding mixture to external biological filtration system (if applicable). Do not add to pump intake port(s). Grossly overdosing MicroBacter7 will not significantly increase the effectiveness of the product, nor the rate at which it enacts changes in aquaria. The following recommendations are based upon extensive testing and will produce the best results in most aquaria.
Medium to High Nutrient Systems or to seed Biological Filtration in new aquaria: To effectively decrease the concentration of available nutrients and waste material in all marine and freshwater aquaria, add 5 ml (1 capful) per 25 US gallons or 4 drops per gallon of aquarium water daily for the first 2 weeks of use; the impact that MicroBacter7 has on an aquarium is most evident within this period. Turn protein skimming and UV-sterilization off for a period of 4 hours following addition to aquaria. A noticeable difference in water clarity is typically apparent within 30-minutes of dosing. Follow same instructions for new aquarium start-up. Thereafter, switch to low-nutrient dosage (below).
Stable, Low-nutrient Systems: To maintain a low concentration of available nutrients in all marine and freshwater aquaria, 5 ml (1 capful) per 50 US gallons or 2 drops per gallon of aquarium water no more than once each week; alternately, add 1 drop per 50 US gallons daily or 1 drop per 25 US gallons every other day. Turn protein skimming and UV-sterilization off for a period of 4 hours following addition to aquaria. Dosage may be adjusted according to perceived benefit to aquarium, however it is recommended that the dosage not exceed 1 drop per 10 US gallons per day. With time, hobbyists may determine that decreasing the dosage and/or dosing frequency by up to 50% sufficiently maintains a low-nutrient environment. During changes in biological filtration or when increasing the aquarium bioload, dose 1 drop per 25 US gallons daily for one week, then resume low-nutrient dosage.
Ingredients Purified water, proprietary blend of natural enzymes and non-pathogenic, beneficial microorganisms.
