Maintain biological balance by enhancing the rate of microbial growth and promoting rapid, natural phosphate and nitrate reduction in marine and reef aquaria with Reef BioFuel. Encourages the polyp expansion of all corals as well as the reproduction of bacterioplankton, an important food source of suspension feeding inverts. Biofuel is a an effective and safe replacement of the "vodka method" of microbial activity. It can also help to expedite biological filtration in new tanks.

Instructions
Do not use this product in any aquarium in which active and effective protein skimming is not in use. The skimmer may be turned off for a few (e.g. 2 - 6) hours following addition of Reef BioFuel to the aquarium to enable nutrient uptake and assimilation, whereupon skimming should be resumed; the use of a timer and automated doser to control protein skimming and dosing is a simple and effective means of accomplishing this.
Alternately, the product may be effectively employed without turning skimming off at all. Grossly overdosing Reef BioFuel will not significantly increase the effectiveness of the product, nor the rate at which it enacts changes in aquaria; in fact, it may have a deleterious effect on water quality if not used as directed.
The following recommendations are based upon extensive testing and will produce the best results in most aquaria; dosage may be adjusted according to perceived benefit to aquarium with time.

Shake product well before using.
Medium- to High-nutrient Systems:
Add 5 ml (1 capful) per 50 US gallons or 2 drops per gallon of aquarium water daily.
Monitor concentrations of phosphate and nitrate with accurate test kits; phosphate and nitrate should eventually become immeasurable (or nearly so) when a balance is reached between the rates of nutrient-input and nutrient-assimilation. Thereafter, switch to low-nutrient dosage (below).

Low-nutrient Systems:
Add 5 ml (1 capful) per 100 US gallons or 1 drop per gallon of aquarium water daily.
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 50 US gallons daily for one week, then resume low-nutrient dosage.

Ingredients
Purified water, proprietary blend of ACS-grade organic carbon sources.
