Brightwell Aquatics MicroBacter7 - Complete Bioculture for Marine and FW Aquaria Information



Part #: BAC250

Overview:
  • Complex system of non-pathogenic aerobic and anaerobic microbes, as well as natural enzymes, specifically formulated to establish biological filtration in new aquarium set-ups, and to enhance the rate of nitrification, denitrification, and organic waste degradation in marine and freshwater aquaria through complete nutrient remineralization.
  • Benefits are:
    1. Rapid reduction of organic carbon, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and phosphate.
    2. 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).
    3. Reduction of organic compounds into nutrients that encourage the growth of photosynthetic organisms (e.g. zooxanthellae, macroalgae, plants).
    4. Greatly-reduced hydrogen sulfide production.
    5. Increase in dissolved oxygen concentration.
    6. Limits availability of pre-existing phosphate to undesirable forms of algae and cyanobacteria.
    7. Increased water clarity.
  • Supplied in a state of suspended animation for maximum longevity.
  • Formulated utilizing extensive data compiled by microbiologists.
Technical Background
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 microalgae and cyanobacteria; 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.
Brightwell Aquatics MicroBacter7 is a selective complex of extremely effective microbes and enzymes that rapidly reduces the concentrations of organic nitrogen, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, and organic carbon in all marine and freshwater ecosystems, leading to greatly improved water quality; better water quality typically leads to healthier aquarium inhabitants. MicroBacter7 does not require refrigeration, however storage in a cool, shaded area will prolong the activity, and maximize the shelf-life, of the product.

Instructions and Guidelines:
Shake product well before using. Mix appropriate volume of MicroBacter7 (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 MicroBacter7 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). For best results, use within 1-year of purchase date. 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 (94.6 L) [˜4 drops per gallon (3.8 L)] of aquarium water daily for the first two 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

It Definitely Works Product Review by Dave B (Posted on 2/26/14)

Great!

Comments: I used this to cycle an aquarium with non-live sand, and uncured live rock. The tank cycled in a little over a week with only one water change. I still do monthly additions of MicroBacter7 as I am still stocking my tank. I couldn't ask for the product to do anything more!

Excellent product!! Product Review by ADNAN MUMTAZ (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I was fighting with cyano since more than a month with 0 nitrates and 0 phosphates but still the cyano was under full force, weekly water changes, changed salt changed bulbs, using MP40 x 2 which gives the best flow rate but nothing was helping, tried this product after a friend advised me to use and today is Day 8 cyano is 90% gone and the tank looks very clean I used to clean my tank's glass daily since 8 days I did it once only.

Excellent!

Comments: It works great and no bad smell been useing it for a week had water tested at store its right where it should be, for a new 40 gal. set up. Easy to use. 2 full caps every day, for a week, then 2 capful 2 times per week. For a 40 gal. Easy instructions.

Great!

Comments: Have been using the product for 4 days. I purchased it to mitigate brown slime. Too soon to tell.
