ReeFlowers Bacteria Feedercontains various food sources that facilitate the rapid growth of the beneficial bacteria that helps to reduce the amount of nitrate and phosphate in fresh and saltwater aquariums. The bacteria biologically cleans the aquarium water providing a more natural environment for aquarium inhabitants.
It is very effective at reducing the nitrate and phosphate levels in salt and freshwater aquaria.
It is recommended that 2ml of ReeFlowers Bacteria Feeder is added for every 100 litersof water, once every two days (for average loaded salt, freshwater, planted aquariums). Do not exceed 5ml in any one day and for long-term use, no more than 2ml should be used on a daily basis.
Measure the nitrate and phosphate levels in the aquarium once a week through the use of appropriate tests. Stop using, if nitrate and phosphate levels are found to be lower than 2 ppm and 0,02 ppm respectively.
In cases where overdose occurs or otherwise suitable biological conditions emerge, bacteria population may abruptly exceed desired levels, leading to a white turbidity in water. This condition would not harm your species living in the water.
If excessive bacteria growth occurs,
Stop using the product, until turbidity completely disappears. Protein skimmer should not be turned off, as the need for oxygen would increase; it should rather be turned down, as otherwise excessive accumulation could result. Turbidity will disappear approximately in 48 hours. After the water is normal again, you can carry on with the application. Reduce the dose to half, if excessive bacteria growth repeats.
