Formulated using extensive data compiled by microbiologists, MicroBacter 7 is a complete bioculture of beneficial microbes and natural enzymes designed to establish biological filtration and rapidly improve water quality in freshwater and marine systems. Microbacter 7 improves water quality by enhancing the rate of nitrification, denitrification, and organic waste degradation through complete nutrient re-mineralization. The result is clear, clean aquarium water and a healthier environment for your aquariums inhabitants.
Instructions and Guidelines:
Shake product well before using. Mix appropriate volume of Micr?Bacter7 (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 Micr?Bacter7 below water level of container or aquarium, be sure to thoroughly clean pipette with fresh water prior to placing tube back into Micr?Bacter7 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). For best results, use within 1-year of purchase date. Grossly overdosing Micr?Bacter7 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 (94.6 L) [?4 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water daily for the first two weeks of use; the impact that Micr?Bacter7 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) of Micr?Bacter7 per 50 US-gallons (189.3 L) [?2 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] 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.
