Brightwell Aquatics MicroBacter Clean - 500ml
Brightwell Aquatics MicroBacter Clean
MicroBacter Clean is a complex system of non-pathogenic microbes and natural enzymes, specifically formulated to clean aquarium live rock and decorations.
The concentration of dissolved and particulate organic materials in any aquatic environment can have a significant impact on the overall appearance of, as well as the health of organisms residing within, that system. Relatively low-nutrient environments are characterized by high water clarity, lack of unpleasant odors, and absence of unsightly coatings; this is collectively a result of the lack of nitrogen-, phosphorus-, and carbon-based waste available. Aquaria that are relatively rich in available nutrients have characteristics opposite to the afore mentioned, and are typically not desirable because of the resultant appearance of the system and the difficulty of maintaining healthy aquarium inhabitants.
Features of MicroBacter Clean
- Natural cleaning action on all aquarium and decoration surfaces.
- Loosening of ugly accumulations of unwanted substances and coatings which makes their removal by scraping and vacuuming much easier.
- Establishment of bacterial colonies that multiply and continue to clean the aquarium.
- Rapid reduction of organic carbon, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and phosphate.
- Digestion of uneaten/undigested food, excreta, detritus, and other latent organic material, resulting in cleaner and healthier aquarium substrate (without having to physically clean or disturb the substrate bed).
Instructions for using Brightwell Aquatics Aquatics MicroBacter Clean
Shake product well before using. Mix appropriate volume of MicroBacterCLEAN (see below) with 250-ml (~8 fl. oz.) of aquarium water in a clean container prior to addition to aquarium. If using a pipette to dispense MicroBacterCLEAN below water level of container or aquarium, be sure to thoroughly clean pipette with fresh water prior to placing tube back into MicroBacterCLEAN bottle; failure to do so will contaminate the product. Best results may be obtained by adding mixture to external biological filtration system. Works particularly well with Xport. Do not add to pump intake port(s). Turn protein skimming and UV-sterilization off for a period of 4 hours following addition to aquaria. While utilizing MicroBacterCLEAN continue good maintenance practices such as regular vacuuming, using purified water for additions, and limiting the addition of unnecessary nutrients.
For normal cleaning and to maintain a clean aquarium: Add 20 ml (4 capfuls) per 25 US-gallons (94.6 L) [16 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water weekly.
For problem aquariums or to rapidly accelerate cleaning: Add 30 ml (6 capfuls) per 25 US-gallons (94.6 L) [24 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water on the first day, then add 5 ml (1 capful) per 25 US-gallons (94.6 L) [4 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water daily for 2 weeks or longer as necessary until desired results are achieved.
Bacteria work slowly, so full results can take up to 8 to 10 weeks for long neglected systems.
